Never Try To Reason With A Baby

There are some things in the universe that are totally incapable of listening to reason: rabid dogs, The Weekly Standard editorial staff, psychotics, and especially babies. For example, take this morning’s exchange:

Baby: Mrkgao!

Me: Ouch, that’s my hair you’re grabbing.

Baby: Ga-aaaah!

Me: You can let go any time now.

Baby: Mmmmmmm! Mmmmmmm!

Me: By “let go any time now,” I didn’t mean, “start tugging both sides simultaneously.”

Baby: Aaaah! HeHeHeHe!

Me: Yes, I know it’s funny, but daddy’s in pain.

Baby: Grbaaa!

Me: Now, we’re both reasonable individuals here, and I’m sure you can find something else to tug on.

Baby: Gaaaaaaa! Aaaaaaaahbr!

Me: Why are you eating my nose?

    Me: Abby, don’t pull the dog’s foot. She’s going to bite you (dog growling).

    Child: Hehe, Zoe’s funny.

    My daughter’s current favorite thing is to come running when I’m lying or sitting on floor and to jump on me, landing on her butt, preferably on my stomach. She calls it “Jump Boom!” It kind of hurts.

    Monday evening noicve ride starting at 6:30pm. It will be a 20km ride with some hills at the beginning and end but otherwise on the flat. (We’ll chanel those big guys who did the 100km ride earlier in the day!) Meet at 4599 Massey Rd in Canton go 2.5km north of Welcome (which is just north of Port Hope) and turn left onto Massey Rd. #4599 is almost immediately on the left. Let’s hope the rain holds off.
