It's Hard Work Being This Cute

I haven't sorted out yet how I plan to handle Thursday Toddler Blogging given that the original reason for it being on Thursday was because SteelyKid was born on a Thursday.

One of the things parents of multiple kids often talk about is how they don't end up doing the same things with second children that they did with their first. For example, I carried the weekly Appa-for-scale photos on with SteelyKid for a couple of years, but didn't last anywhere near that long…

Keep those photos handy. Odds are in twelve or fourteen years you are going to need a reminder of how you got there and how it was. Stay strong.
