The baby's had a fever of almost 105 for three straight nights, so I've spent a lot of time trying to cheer him up. I know it's not really JunkMail style, but I figured everyone else should suffer right along with me:

That kid sure is a trooper with all of the knocks on the head he's getting. Clearly, daddy's going solo on baby duty here.

Retro Bloggage - Please Don't Be Vegan

Originally posted July 24, 2007.

Dialogue today:

Carol: I think the baby's not getting enough vegetables.

Me: But I fed him zucchini last week.

(I'll admit the kid doesn't get much in the way of veggies, but I do stuff him full of fruit.)

Carol: People always talk about how their kids hate vegetables and won't eat them. This is where it starts. I want our kid to like vegetables.

Me: But imagine what a pain in the ass that's going to be. We don't eat vegetables. So the kid's going to be five and liking/demanding vegetables and we'll have to specially prepare vegetables for him. Or send him over to grandma's to get his broccoli fix on. Or just tell him to shut up and eat his grilled cheese sandwich. Or convince him that corn chips are vegetables. Aren't potatoes supposed to be Canada's favorite vegetable? Put ketchup on fries and we'll call it a salad. I've yet to meet a kid who's complained about ketchup and fries.

Carol: Um...

Me: Okay, I'll dig up that bag of peas out of the corner of the freezer.

It's a good thing frozen foods don't have expiration dates.

Much Appreciated

Everyone has been sick in this house. And I mean e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e. I can't even begin to tell you how tired I am of hearing that hacking cough.

Even with the plague surrounding me, I did manage to make up a new set of thank-you cards. Available in the shop now.
