And if I am talking about things I do not do, I certainly will not photograph them and put them on the world wide web for all to see.

Leah is never fussy when I try to get some work done in the kitchen and if she was I would not try to confine her more or just change the environment instead of devoting all my attention on her. But she loves playing in her bathtub, clothed or not, with or without water.

Leah does not use her soother except at bedtime. I do not give it to her just to buy a few more minutes of no crying and certainly not just to try get a half decent picture of her with her grandpa close to bedtime.

When we are in a hurry to go somewhere, I do not allow Leah to play with things that are not toys while I gather my jacket, shoes, purse and camera and her jacket and diaper bag and ensure everything is duly stocked in case of any emergency event (diaper malfunction, intense hunger, spit up, you moms know the type). Grandma’s lid off of her travel coffee mug tastes oh, so good… even if it is… or was clean.

Leah does not get her extremities wrapped it in her crib slats while sleeping and I certainly do not leave her like that in hopes of extending nap time a little longer.

I do not let Leah crawl wherever her heart desires as she may bump into something…. even if she had a fascination with being right under the middle of the table while all the chairs are tucked in.

I was not excited when I saw that Leah had figured out how to open the door to the TV cabinet and would never show her my excitement when it will be something to discourage her from in the very near future.

On Saturday while hanging out at Granville Island, I would never stand in the wet snow and rain longer than absolutely necessary with Leah and no umbrella to take a picture with a cool looking mixer for her grandpa.

Oh, and one last thing… I always dress Leah first thing when she wakes up in the morning. As you can see from the pictures above, we do not lounge around in the morning. Or for that matter, in the afternoon or evening.

    Well, I am certainly glad that you DO NOT do any of those things. They are unthinkable. Something that I would NEVER do is let Liam watch a little TV while I am trying to get dinner ready and he is fussy. Like you, I would put down the food and rush to his side.
    We are such good mommies.
