I'm sorry but that was freakin' hilarious.

Reminds me of that Onion Article where they (meaning scientists) have discovered that babies are stupid. They are put on a life raft with bottled water, cans of food and can openers and are unable to help themselves and end up dying of starvation. A baby is placed in front of a fire and actually leans in to touch it and burns himself. A baby is given the option of a teddy bear and a shard of glass and the baby picks up the glass.

They just don't get it, do they? (smile) At least you're practicing your cat-like reflexes!!

Sorry. That was my brilliance up there.


I'd say the fact that you stuck your finger into a kid's mouth " so fast it's un-freakin'-believable" suggests that you've got exactly the right qualifications for looking after kids.

If the Zygote does inherit his dad's "impulsiveness, clumsiness. and absent-mindedness" it'll be fine. You've lived long enough with all those characteristics, after all!


My son is 4 and my daughter is 2, and I wonder sometimes if I'm going to make it through toddlerhood. Let's see...choking on food, hitting heads on concrete slabs/pointy table edges/doorjambs, picking up broken glass, dislocating an elbow 3 times, running away from home (yes, already at age 3, the worst 20 minutes of my life)...

Isn't it amazing how so many animals are almost self-sufficient at birth, but humans have such big heads we have to be born before we can fend for ourselves? (OK, that's the theory I've heard, correct me if I'm wrong.)

I've heard parenthood described as being "on suicide watch" until the kids are at least three years old.
