Quote of the week:
"My daddy will be home when he's done drawing.." -Ellison
Ellison's daddy is an architect. So essentially, "drawing" is what daddy does all day, amongst a few dozen other things! For the most part, he's got it right.
Turn 9 months and the temper does strike...
Madison had been munching on a pretzel, something I wasn't quite sure she was ready for so I removed it from her mouth. Moments later I realized she was having quite the meltdown, crying, yelling etc. I picked her up trying to soothe her. It failed to work. I stripped her as at this point she was quite upset and I thought perhaps something in her clothing or diaper was hurting her. At this point she was hysterical. I redressed her and tried to calm her again.
Then it struck me. The pretzel. Sure enough, I returned the sacred pretzel and the hysteria seized.
Don't mess with a girl and her pretzels.
