Five Minutes

Posted on Jun 05, 2008. 7 comments

As an exercise I decided to write down everything I said to my 1.5 year old daughter Maya in a five minute interval. Below are the results.
Don't drink the dog's water.
Don't put your hand on the fan.
Don't stand on your chair.
What are you putting in your mouth?

Get that out of your mouth, what's wrong with you?!
Do not make copies on the copier.
Do not chew on the speaker cable.
WHAT ARE YOU PUTTING INTO YOUR MOUTH?

    Boy does this bring back memories …
    With a brace of grown sons (now 23 and 21), all I can say is don’t blink!

    Babies put lots of filthy things in their mouths, dirt, dog hair, food off of the floor.
    That’s what you meant, right??

    I agree. Put some swiffer heads on those little mitts and you’re in business.
    If anybody gives you a hard time about child labor, just remind them that early contact with dirt will help Maya avoid having allergies in the future. You’re just being a good parent.
    She’ll learn about the fan soon enough when your back is turned anyway.

    1. I love the floor.
    2. Does Maya try to eat the yarn?
    3. Give her a Swiffer to go with that dust pan!

    “Do not make copies on the copier.”
    Aw…“Why did you collate all these like this. What is wrong with you?” will be here before you know it.
