Tiger vs. Yo Gabba Gabba

Watched "Yo Gabba Gabba" instead of the Tiger Wood's mea culpa. Parenting requires sacrifice.

What Babies Bring

A former English professor of mine, Marilyn McEntyre, has designed a wonderful collection of postcards called things like "Why We Read" or "Why Coffee is Important," and a colleague gave me this one today:

WHAT BABIES BRING

Late-night entertainment
A new array of aromas
Their own agendas
A stuffed animal stampede
A fresh look at family
An excuse for earthiness
Terrifying responsibility
Gloating grandparents
Smiles from strangers
Suspicious siblings
Large piles of small pajamas
An ongoing reality checkA reminder of mystery
