Two weeks as a parent.......

Russia 5:24pm
Having just started my third week as a parent, I am beginning to laugh at the folly of my ways in the first days. Some rules for those who are starting out :
  1. Never, ever, put orange juice in a sippy cup.
  2. Do not say the word "cookie" when you have none one hand, even if your son did not know any English a week ago.
  3. Toys should never come within a hundred meter radius of a toilet.
  4. When booking a hotel, make sure there will be screens on the windows, especially if you will be on the 21st floor.
  5. When a toddler says that he needs to go "pee-pee," do not hold him up against your own chest to get him there faster.
  6. Two parents are easier than one. Three would be better.

So far so good. Our family of three is getting along very well. We will see how things work out when we add a fourth family member in a week..........
