We apologize for interrupting your regularly scheduled programming....

Public Service Announcement:

If you ever see a child who is smiling, laughing, bouncing in their stroller and being all out adorable, you do not need to ask if said child is tired. The usual signs of a tired child are whining, eye rubbing, yawning or being still.

Just because both of a child's eyes are not both wide open does not mean the child is tired. Unless both eyes are closed, it is safer to assume that the happy child with one eye open wide and one eye opened a sliver is just that, a happy child. Not a tired child. The disposition of the child is much more pertinent in the determination of a child's need for sleep.

For your own safety and the sanity of the child's mother, do not ask if child is tired, ready for bed, etc. And eventually, young children grow up and become aware of comments made about them. While curiosity is not a sin, making comments is unnecessary.

We now return to our regularly scheduled programming.

Regularly scheduled programming (i.e. pictures) will return as soon as we have a faster Internet connection!

You never know what crazy comments people will come up with. I still remember being at the store with baby CeCe and a woman telling me how sad it was that I couldn't have my "own" babies. I told her I wasn't sad so she shouldn't be either!

Hope you and the family are doing well!
