Think before you do it
Tom is currently throwing a knock-down drag-out screaming fit at the prospect of going down for a nap. I had to physically force him to wash his hands after lunch which was met with even more crying and screams of "you're hurting me" and "you're killing me". Nothing like a little guilt trip on Pops, huh? For the record I was neither hurting nor killing him. Unless soap and water can do either of those things. I guess in the mind of a 3 year old soap and water are like kryptonite and ... liquid kryptonite? Or soapy kryptonite and regular kryptonite? Something like that.

Like Tara said to me earlier, dealing with an uncooperative toddler is like trying to stuff an octopus into a bag. Anyone thinking about having kids might want to reconsider. I'm off to buy some more stock in the manufacturer of Trojans.
