Dear Little –
You like outlets – in fact, you found two that we didn’t even know we had. This is a problem.
Yesterday, you shanked your older cousin by grabbing her by the hair and yanking her to the ground, Southie Style. You also went for her legs. Though you have great form, it’s not appropriate to drop your cousin like a sack of potatoes.
You also have a penchant for the radiator, which isn’t on now (it’s May) but will be, and that’s going to be an important (albeit sad) day for you.
Then it hit me.
As your parent, my one mission is to make sure you don’t accidently end up hospitalized. Everything else is just icing on the cake. Outings, cuddles, coloring – that’s all fine and good, but as a parent of a baby on the move, we have to make sure you make it to pre-school without putting a fork in an outlet, or grabbing the teeth end of the wrong animal (correct answer: all animals).
Sheesh – no pressure!
