A friend sent me a Mother's Day e-mail and one of the thoughts was:
If you think you can find all the information you need for child-rearing in a book,
you have never had a child stuff peas up his nose or down his ears!
I started laughing because that is so true.
When Ethan was about three, we had been to the mall with a friend of mine and her little girl. We were driving home and her little girl started yelling that Ethan was bleeding. I looked in the rear view mirror and saw red all over his face. Thinking he was hemorrhaging, I jerked the car off the road and jumped out to get to him. By this time, he was crying. He had stuffed red hot candies up his nose and they were melting and to say the least burning!!
Find that one in a book on raising kids!
