Before I go

About to leave the hotel room and the internets with it. Before I do that, I wanted to ask you all what do you figure it says about Monkey's upbringing that at one point at breakfast this morning she declared her baby dolly hungry, then promptly pulled down the top of her dress and stuck the dolly's face to her nipple? And then sat, holding the dolly in place with one hand, operating the fork with the other, and chatting non-stop for the next several minutes? What?

Updated: It's not the nursing that was noteworthy-- I've seen that many a time. It was the apparently nonchalant "nursing in public" complete with impressive multitasking that was cracking me up.

Umm, seen it many, many times. I've even seen toddler boys "nurse" their baby dolls!

Sounds like normal early childhood behavior to me! :-) One of my favorite photos of my now eight year old is of her at 2, lying down on the futon, nursing her dolly.

It says she's got a clearer picture of what motherhood is like than most fathers do. ;)

Multitasking is impressive. Especially in one so young.

And yes, as others have said, you do rock!
