Parents of older children:
Does the sweetness of your sleeping child still take your breath away? At what age do you stop sneaking into their rooms just to look at them for a little while?

Former NFL player Rosey Grier liked needlepoint.  He wrote a book about it in 1973. (via Dangerous Minds)

And then there was this other Rosey Grier masterpiece.

New Low

I just, for serious, asked a two-year old if he had lied to me, then I begged him to eat a bite of his dinner, then I started sobbing. So, yeah, plumbing new depths of bad parenting over here.

I’ve never felt so incompetent and awful. What in the hell is going on with me?


The senior baby needs to wake up. If he doesn’t wake up from his nap now, there will be a protracted bedtime and no one wants that. But the junior baby is teething and, in general, a hot, clingy mess these days, and he just fell asleep on me. The doctors shot my pubic symphysis full of meds yesterday, but I’m still too hurty from the procedure to move with enough grace to transfer the junior baby off of me and into an acceptable sleeping place. Also, I’m tired as fuck and just want to sleep. But the senior baby must be awoken or there will be hell to pay.
