Because I Do Not Encourage Such Things

like walking and talking, I pushed him down shortly after the photo was taken.

Really, you let them stand and say mama today, next thing you know they are running through the house and talking until your brain matter begins to ooze out of your ears. It is better not to even let them start down this road. Trust me.

Yes, walking is over rated!

*sigh* you are right! I ignorantly didn't worry too much when Levi started cruising along the furniture, after all he still had months to go before his birthday, and he wouldn't walk before then, right? Well, WRONG! Why is it the ones who are supposed to be the babies forever are the quickest to leave babyhood behind? He took his first steps at 10 months and hasn't looked back. My earliest walker yet. waaahhh

Ours was walking at 8 mo so do not even go there.

And I always thought it was women and you were not supposed to teach em to talk....

Oh, he'll be walking before the first birthday. He's anxious to start chasing his siblings!

and it can continue for years....

"accidentally" hang up the phone when someone of the opposite sex calls your teenager.....

"forget" to do such things as send in camp registration/deposit, insurance information necessary for them to gain a learner's permit or even their college deposit.

the possibilities are endless!

My husband always says things like, "I can't wait until he can crawl/walk/drive..." I'm thinking, are you new here? Don't you remember how much more trouble that is?!

Try cinder blocks. Or maybe an anvil.

You are so right. Once they start this they start getting into trouble and that's just not fun.

I am so glad to have you as my guide in the world of motherhood! It seems so logical now: push Sophia down when she tries to walk. Brilliant!

Over the past 3 days I have had the pleasure of reading your blog. (It's been very slow at the office.) Thanks for all the laughs and a few tears. :)

That was so funny! Yes we want the first one to hurry up and walk, after that the subsequent children should not be encouraged.

Thank God baseball hell is over here! As for the walking, well, we're not going to encourage it for our fourth at all. I can barely keep up with the others.

My husband was just reading your blog over my shoulder. He was laughing his ass off. He especially liked the fact that you pushed your baby down to prevent him from learning to walk too soon. THAT is a good idea.

BTW- I LOVE that chair!!

My sister is adopting a 9 month old baby. The baby doesn't crawl yet, not enough one on one time at the baby home. The month my sister has been there, she has started to creep some and will be crawling and walking by one year (which is in October) My sister never understood by we "accidently) played with my nephews to prevent them from walking early. She is so screwed. I can't wait. I am an evil sister, but a wonderful aunt
