    He likes beer, or at least says he does. I was making a joke. I'll give him a sip of my beer. It isn't going to hurt him.

    You let him have a sip of beer, next thing you know he's gonna want some of your heroin, your meth, your PCP...

    He's got to learn sometime. I'd rather him experiment with drugs when I'm around then alone in a ditch with some hippy!

    My 4 year old just covered the bathroom floor in vomit.

    I just sat him in the tub as i wiped it up. Poor guy. He just goes 'i had to puke a whole bunch, daddy'

    A bit of water in and a bucket next to his bed. I hope it's the one and only puke of the nite. :/

    Fortunately kids seem able to shake off getting sick really really.

    So my sister-in-law has been having Braxton hicks contractions for a couple weeks, increasing in frequency as she nears the end of her term.

    At least, that was the theory up until yesterday. Now the medical opinion is that she's moved into the early stages of a slow labour. Like, so slow my brother went to work today because the show isn't going to really get going until maybe tomorrow or the day after... possibly.

    Still, potential exist for me to be an uncle again by the end of the week. Going to get my first nephew.

    My little girl loves this one book we got for her: The numberlys. It's a great alphabet/numbers book, the drawing is really nice, and I think she likes the fact that we read a book sideways, too.

    Bah. I've managed to get into a bit of drama with the in-laws. The mother in-law has a dog. A little west highland terrier. The dog is ok, but completely untrained and a little high strung. The other day, the sister in-law was visiting the mother in-law with her children. Apparently the dog didn't like one of the kids trying to hug his grandma and bit hard enough to draw blood. After I heard about this, my wife and I talked about it and we asked her mother to just have the dog in it's kennel when we're visiting with our very grabby 9 month old son. The mother in-law shot that down right away and now we're in a bit of an impasse. I'm standing firm on not wanting to visit when her dog is uncontrolled and has a history of biting. I don't think we're making an unreasonable demand, but the mother in-law is pretty mad about this. My wife thinks we might be able to keep an eye on our son when we visit but I really don't want to risk it.

    Bah.

    Blew my mind this morning when I realized that I was quizzing my eldest on spelling this morning. It seemed just like yesterday she was a preschooler now I'm asking her to spell "little" and "people" at the breakfast table.

    Meanwhile Lily, my youngest, just moved up to the preschool room at her daycare this morning and was totally fine with it. (Of course the french toast sticks they were offering helped.)

    They grow up so fast!!!

    Your mother-in-law will bend if she cares about seeing her grandkid. If she's worried more about her dog running free than your concern over your baby's safety when the dog has a history of biting kids, she's just being a jerk. I wouldn't back off your demand.

    Just let your mother in law know that if her dog bites your kid, you will report it to the council as a violent animal and they will come and shoot it.

    I say if you're wife is with you to just not go over there. If she wants to see her grandkid she can come visit you guys without the dog.

    God, Taz is just growing up so far. He's getting pretty close to joining words into sentences (this morning he pointed at Erica and said 'Mummy .... teeth' as she was brushing her teeth, though I prompted him with 'what's Mummy doing?' in between), and he's just showing such good comprehension.

    Also, this cuteness:

    We had this exact same thing happen with my step mother. I told her that she had two choices: cage the dog, or accept that I'd stomp on it until it stopped twitching if it attacked one of my kids.

    As someone who knows a person who encountered an excited terrier as a toddler, caging a dog is temporary. Facial scars are a lifetime.

    The year I met Scott my MIL's cat VERY nearly took his eye out.

    They can just lock that cat right the fuck up when my son is there and if they don't like it we will turn around and go home.

    My wife and I are vaguely worried about our son. He bumps his head so much. He even has a couple of bruises. He just wants to get into everything! We walk away for 10 seconds, he's climbed to stand up next to the couch, the next moment, he falls against the wall. Or on a toy. Or whatever. I just worry that he's hurting himself too much, but I can't bubblewrap him.

    I was a walking bruise until about the age 23. He'll be fine. :+1:

    let em cry it out

    odds are they're over tired anyway (which never made any sense to me, but boy is it true) and will crash fairly quickly.

    as long as they're not hungry, sick, or need to be changed, they're fine

    A week or two ago Miles crossed some kind of threshold and now temper tantrums. Over pretty much anything, whenever.

    He's not talking yet, so I have no idea why he's upset and it's a mystery. Sometimes he'll point at something I definitely have no intention of giving him

    I'm ready for this phase to end now.

    Though she's been great since birth, we had one week where Alex just threw a fit over seemingly nothing at all, all the time, out of the blue.

    Turns out she started getting her rear molars in all at once, poor kid.

    I appreciate the comfort - our girl never had these kinds of bruises or this desire to constantly whack her head on everything. Dunno if it's because our 2nd is a boy, or if he just wants to follow his big sister, or what. Just...yeah.

    Other than that things are going pretty swimmingly :D

    So I do!

    Don't believe that hype. =P I have 2 daughters, one 21 months old, one 5 weeks, and while the 5 week old has a good temperament so far, the 21 month old has been a firecracker from the start. She once screamed for 20 minutes straight when she was about 8 weeks old before I realized she just wanted me to remove her tiny socks. Never let us swaddle her, and to this day she will have a crying meltdown if she is tired and wants to nurse and my wife has to make her wait 30 seconds.

    She is adorable though, and the most fun in the world, so there's that at least. =)
