Rollover, Rollover

There is a stupid nursery rhyme that says “rollover, rollover”, I think its called “Ten in bed” it’s a counting thing anyway it’s stupid.

What’s the point? – Point is that kids rollover on their own and they don’t need a stupid nursery rhyme to encourage them.

Kids are always moving and once the figure out how to rollover that’s all they do for most part. Which means they will fall if you are not watching. Don’t leave them in a elevated situation where they can rollover too may times and fall. (Couches or beds). Trust me I know. My kid rolls over and fell a couple of times and it was a very scary for both us. I picked her up, checked if anything hurts when I pressed on it, thank god nothing did and then I Just hugged her until she calmed down. I prefer to give the bottle to calm them down and it usually does the trick.

Be always watching, what your kids are doing.

Infants, outside?

WHY? OH WHY? Would you take an infant to an amusement park?

What is the point? Do you like headaches and challenges in your life? I don’t so why do you? If you want to go to an amusement park, get a babysitter.

I get it, some people say infants shouldn’t leave the house for the first 3 months or something like that. I’m more on the lines of the first month because you don’t want to get the baby sick. But I also understand that sometimes you to need to get out of the house. So you go and pick up milk and bread and you have to bring the kid. BUT the amusement park, what is your excuse for that?

This all comes from this past weekend, my wife and I go to Hershey Park for a concert and before the concert we go to the amusement park to kill some time. I probably say 20 infants at the park and about 10 one month old babies. I just don’t get the point. You couldn’t find a babysitter than you stay home. Why harm the baby to bacteria and give yourself a headache.

I’m sorry I don’t get it. News flash – Kids memories start around 3 years old. Don’t believe me? Think back to your first memory, how old were you? 3? Probably around there so if you think your 1 year old or two year old will remember anything, you got another thing coming.

Stay home with you kids and save the money for their college funds, because we know that won’t go down anytime soon.

Pink Eye

Your kid will get everything! My 11 month old baby has pink eye, how you ask, who knows?

Is it our cats, is it another kid in Daycare, or is it just some dust particle that went into her eye and irritated my baby’s eye? Remember babies crawl, they get their hands dirty and then they touch their face, so be prepared.

You don’t know, but you have to be ready for anything. Take the kid to the doctor, they will give antibiotics eye drops and that’s all. BUT wait there is more…

You will get pink eye if you are not careful ( I got it). Wash all sheets, wash your hands always when dealing with pink eye, wipe down what your kid is touching. It’s a pain but its something you have to do.
