The one where SubWife is too tired to come up with a title

A few weeks after one of my soliloquies on the topic of "Mommy is also a human being and thus needs to eat, sleep and rest" (if you insist, no I am not proud of it), DD and I are talking about her camp. DD is telling me about one of her counselors, and I inquire, "Is she a young girl? A teenager?" To which DD replies, "No, she is a human being."

Hell hath no fury like a baby scorned

Our baby finally started to walk. Yay for us!!!

A few weeks ago the following happened: she would make two steps and would plop back on her tush. And she would do this over and over and over again. In the middle of this exercise her brother picked up a toy she was playing with and made a run for it. Baby got visibly mad and screamed. The she got up, made her two standard steps, shook a bit unevenly, held her balance and made two more steps. No, she did not catch her brother, but she set a record!

And also sent a clear message: nobody puts the baby in the corner! Or takes her toys away. Unless they can make more than four steps, but she's working on it!
