Lately for us, something as innocuous as “Do you want milk or water?” is enough to launch the kid into hysterics.

My list is up. I don’t think I’ve finished one before 11 am, so I’m doing good today.

Sounds about right. And I don’t know the proper way to play with Thomas the Train either. Mostly I just get to watch. And my list is up!

Yes, to all of them. What is the obsession with coffee and sodas? I think they must smell it on us. The toddler years are so filled with joy.

Also, I’d like to add: Wiping face after lunch; Removing coins from mouth; Preventing nose dives from the top of the couch.

Ah, thanks for the forewarning…someday when we have kids I’m sure I’ll look back on this list and chuckle…or cry.

My list is up!

I love it when people remind me why I don’t have kids. Sometimes I find myself wavering. :)

Not having a child I can’t really comment on this post. I can say that it’s quite amusing however.

List has been up for a while now.

Hey Anna! Your list is cracking me up… especially in my preparations for future niece and nephew :) I think it would be pretty cool if one or both of them cried whenever I left them… and then my sister and bro-in-law would have to deal with it. And I’d just feel loved. hahahaha

Anyway, I just pogged a list. A paltry list (with only 2 items — someone’s lazy tonight), but a list nonetheless.

Crap, I just realized I’m a total loser and forgot to put your awesome little listy link at the end of my pog… I’ll get right on that!

So many of these could also apply to cats and dogs that I have known… so, I decided to do a list about my cat.

There were days in toddlerhood where just the fact that I was alive would raise a crying fit. This is one of those things that still causes a problem, 8 years later.

foradifferentkindofgirl (fadkog)´s last blog post..’til now, i always got by on my own. except nope, not really.

Sprite's Keeper November 11, 2008 at 6:13 am

Okay, mine’s up!
