Elf is sick of being overlooked in favour of the baby. He just meowed me indignantly to the couch, where he proceeded to grab my hand with both paws and smugly purr all over me. Every time I try to move, this whole cycle starts all over again.


In other news, I'm enjoying a fun activity I call "parenting through peer pressure". It involves the kidlet sitting in his highchair with his plastic cutlery (no solids yet) while we eat dinner, and using his gumbrush while I use my toothbrush. The idea is that he thinks this is just What We Do, so that I can avoid having to introduce him to Scary New Things and instead just slide him effortlessly into our everyday lives. (Those of you who are parents, this is where you get to laugh hysterically at me using "effortlessly" in a sentence about parenting.)

So far, it's working well.

In that case, you'll LOVE his attending your EVERY toilet visit, to grin, watch, listen, and comment..."can see? Can look?"...

PS- we only got a toothbrush for our sprog at about 18 months or so, and she now loves brushing on her own as part of her bedtime routine...with no previous 'gumbrush' or other such fun thing. We just started one day, and all was well. :) Now, to get her to attend a dentist visit with us one day, and not cry the whole time...
