I am starting my series of NaBloPoMo posts today. Yeah this is a surprise decision from someone who hasn’t even managed to write as often as weekly. But I’m putting myself on a pretty aggressive schedule. I’m hoping that dividing a post into 7 parts is perfectly acceptable. Or considering the tweets from my phone as valid blog posts. That would be much better.
Anyway, I’ll start the series with a lighter post giving you a chance to laugh. I got this on my email yesterday. It’s a list of ‘serious’ parenting advices illustrated clearly with pictures.
Pappu was on my lap when I read it. To keep him from fighting dear life for keyboard access, I read it in a loud and funny enough voice that would entertain him. My tactic worked perfectly and the boy squealed and even repeated ‘baby’ everytime I said that word.
Okay, here are the tips for you:
And then we enacted the illustrations and ironically, my son showed more enthusiasm when I tried the part of the illustration with the bright red triangle saying ‘no’, ‘wrong’ and ‘unsafe’. That includes “picking clearing his nose”, “making baby laugh”, “bundling baby” and “helping baby teethe”. Hope this doesn’t tell anything about my parenting skills!
I’m still laughing at “changing baby’s diaper” and “checking baby’s diaper”. I know the ‘other woman’ who does right that!
