Hindsight is 20/20... and so is my IQ/IQ

Surefire way to give your kid a cold:

Step 1) Take kid to nursery for the first time.
Step 2) Spend a couple days in a well air-conditioned home.
Step 3) Feed kid early dinner
Step 4) Take kid outside into the heat, and get in hot car.
Step 5) Crank up the air-conditioner until car is nice and cool.
Step 6) Take kid out of car into heated parking lot.
Step 7) Take kid into air-conditioned mall.
Step 8) Feed kid nice sugary fruit snacks while rest of family eats Chinese.
Step 9) Go out into the heat again.
Step 10)

Step 11) Have a temporary lapse in sanity.
Step 12) Go back with wet kid into air-conditioned mall for ice cream.
Step 13) Give kid some of your nice, sugary ice cream.
Step 14) Go back out into the heat and get in hot car.
Step 15) Cool car.
Step 16) Hot garage.
Step 17) Cool house.

Those little kiddos are so cute! Can't wait to squeeze 'em. But I'll probably have to be quick about it. Sorry about the cold. I think that I'm expecting one or more of my kids to have something oozing out of nose for the next 8 months...

And by the way, I'm the one visiting your blog from "kunglav" or something like that.

You should be jealous.

The sad part is, it doesn't even have to be their first time in nursery. It could be ANY day you take them to nursery. :-( **sigh**

Seriously, you're such an awesome mom. You actually DO things! I'm so chicken to go anywhere with them by myself. Still. And they're going to be 2 in a few months.

I'm such a pansy.

Magirk said...

But uh, congratulations on the first time in the nursery!

Isn't that milestone, or something....?
