06:10 am: more Teddy Teddy
We discovered a new game this morning (after Teddy's first nursing since last night - at almost 6 am - w00t!): I heavily "walk" my fingers up the back of Teddy's body, from his legs to his neck, chanting "Teddy, Teddy" like the theme from Jaws. Teddy thinks it's completely hilarious and begs for "more Teddy Teddy."

Peter does not yet believe in the Power of Band-Aids. I learned about it when I worked in restaurants. I always kept a stash of band-aids in my pocket, because wailing children could often be hushed if they were given band-aids for their boo-boos. Children in my section were often seen sporting band-aids on their heads or tummies (ok, not seen sporting those, as this was in an era before ho'clothes for tots) to cure their headaches or bellyaches.

Teddy was claiming he had a boo-boo again last night. I got him to quit sniffling by offering a band-aid, which of course he didn't want on his own body. He was mollified by the band-aid on my hand, however. He kissed it all better, too. Peter thought the whole thing was ridiculous.

But it worked, dammit!

Double WOW. You and my grandson are doing just great! Please tell Peter for me that you always got great tips from your soothing -- and that we're still enjoying yoga.

Re: Congratulations!

I'll do that, thanks. He's delighted that you're enjoying yoga. Me, too. :)
