    Yesterday I had to pull a long spaghetti strand out of my daughter's mouth when she ambitiously tried to devour it whole. I yanked the whole strand, intact, out of her mouth. It was like trying to pull-start a lawnmower whose motor makes gagging sounds.

    Enjoy it while you can. Life is about to become infinitely more complicated.

    I can only hope my innocent child enjoys life until I must teach her the cruel nature of the THUMBS DOWN. 🙁

    It's never too early. Prepare her for when she turns 13...less traumatic.

    There are some meatballs out there who just don't like spaghetti.

    Great, then you'll enjoy pulling the next one out of her nose. Just wait.

    After working a week of night shift, i was "requested" to get up early to help my wife who had agreed to babysit her friends kids while the moved house. I climber down the stairs half awake and walked through the kitchen to the front room to be greeted in the doorway by a 5 year old who was fully clothed, except that her pants were on her head as she gleefully proclaimed "My pants fell down".

    I turned heel and spent the day watching netflix on my phone in bedroom.
