Bubs fell head first into a wall. Hard. I was folding laundry, and he was toddling around as he usually does. He's been going much faster, tripped, and flew head first into the wall. He was fairly close, so his head bumped, rubbed, and neck bent backwards. Instant tears. I don't know if he was scared or actually hurt. I calmed him by nursing him, and he cried as he nursed. I ...

For obvious ... Read More about Hell Is Parenting While Sick
Yesterday, we went to the zoo. I don't know why I think my 12 month old would enjoy it. When we first got there, we tried showing him the bears and pandas, but he was more interested in the glass than in any of the animals or their surroundings. We visited the baby panda inside, and he just didn't care and was looking everywhere but at the cute baby panda. Cool. I attempted to feed ... Read More about Zoo Trip or Nap Time?
