Thanks. Hopefully, the baby will be better about sleeping through the
night than I was. <snip>
One thing you do not do. Well, two actually, number one is, don't
drop the kid. Number two is, don't tiptoe around, trying to be quiet
when the kid is napping. Talk in a normal voice, play the radio or TV,
etc.; in other words, pretty much carry on as normal. That way the kid
will get used to sleeping thru everyday life and nose. Otherwise, the
kid will wake up at every little noise. Trust me.
Oh yeah, when the kid gets old enough to scoot around on his/her
own, among other handy items of knowledge, always turn the toilet paper
so the end hands down in back, and not the front. Again, trust me. The
kid WILL get in and unroll the toilet paper, at some time or another,
and it's MUCH easier and faster to rewind with it hanging down the back.
Same advice if you've got cats.
There's lots more, but I'll leave you some to learn on your own.
Oh yeah, what your mother said was a polite way of saying, "Payback
is Hell". Hehehe Now she'll be able to spoil the kid, then go back
home, leaving you for damage control. LMAO
