The quick brown fox jumped over the good, but lazy Parker family.

three ways to kill your sparklet

Monday, 31 May 2010

not that we were particularly in the running for “parents of the year” so far, but our application was burnished this week when we successfully went the whole weekend without killing our daughter.

not for lack of trying, mind you.

the weekend started with sparklet rolling through the lady sparkler’s hands, off the impromptu changing table, and onto the (fortunately well carpeted) floor. daddy took it a step further by tossing sparklet into the air — and directly into a low-hanging door frame.

not to be out done, baby sparklet taught herself how to open a dresser drawer, and then close it on her hand.

fortunately, sparklet barely noticed all the varied attempts on her life, and mommy has been formally introduced to the “no blood, no foul” rule.

or is it “that which does not kill you makes you stronger?”
