You, Chew, Hugh

It was quite the chatty doctor’s visit earlier this month. There must be some kind of domestic violence prevention campaign going on, because in between a bunch of health questions, Dr. New threw in, “Is anyone hitting you or hurting you?”

I replied, “No. Actually the baby keeps smacking his head into my chest when he loses his balance, but I don’t think that’s what you’re looking for.”

That baby is now working on his third tooth and managed to eat an entire banana this afternoon. We are totally going to have to take on night jobs to afford the food these kids are going to consume as tweens.

In other news – Hugh Jackman, Oscar host! Quoted in Entertainment Weekly as saying he’ll be singing and dancing! Who cares what movies have been nominated? I’ll be there. Well, watching on TV in any case.

It's true, our children do more damage than i ever imagined. I told my new mom friend recently to prepare to be a battered woman for a few years.

I shudder to think of the food I've seen teenage boys consume, now that I know I will have one of my own. I understand why my mother-in-law persists in buying way more food than she needs, after years of going through two loaves of bread a day.
