Don’t do that

I’d never seen anyone literally cry over spilled milk before.  After we stopped laughing, we attempted to teach  the required lesson.

A new entry for the “things that are not fun” list

Trying to stop your daughter from tearing out her IV while she screams hysterically and cries (literally) bloody tears.

Other than that, Zoe’s eye surgery went fairly well.  More info (if you want it) here.

I’m sure this says something about us as parents

Posted by chrisgwinn on July 7, 2008

Zoe’s been learning words left and right recently. Sometimes she asks for things, but quite often she just points and proudly identifies something she knows the word for. So we’ve been confused the last week or so when she loudly and intentionally said “doppy!” or “doppy do”. She didn’t seem to want anything in particular and there didn’t seem to be anything consistently around when she said it.

This morning we get a clear point and a “doppy”. “Is doppy coffee?” says Ann. Big nod. Big smile.

She wasn’t pointing at coffee. “Coffee” has clearly been generalized as the term for anything Mom and Dad are drinking, especially if it’s not for Zoe. Coffee is coffee, but so is beer, wine, water in glass glasses, etc.
