On Sunday, we went to Babies 'R' Us. We went through all the aisles, pretty much. We got diapers, and wipes, and some new bottles, with straws, and we looked at some strollers. I said to the little guy, "Ching Chang Ching," to make him laugh, but then Honey said, "Honey," and I remembered I was in public. We separated for a while, then met again near the toys. Then we went to the register and I talked to the lady about us not receiving our coupons in the mail, and What's up with that?
From there, we went to Trader Joe's, where we met a friend and bought organic milk and yogurt. It was very crowded. We also bought cookies. Again, we separated for a while. I wondered around the fruits and vegetables and stared at clementines. Then, just before we left, I ran back to the dairy section to replace the milk with one that expired a week later.

And I started fooling around with the swing--pushing it really high and letting it fall, and then pretending that the baby was kicking me while he was swinging, because why just swing when you can swing and laugh at the same time?
But then I thought, "This father is going to write about me on his stupid blog. He's going to write about the guy who lifted his baby too high, and then taught his baby that it was okay to kick people. And nowadays you can't do anything without some asshole writing about it on his stupid blog!"
And then I got it: I am that asshole!
and then addie asked for a blog. - It was over cheeseburgers and fries at the Shake Shack in Battery City on Friday night. “Mom? What is a blog?” Earlier in the day we visited Babble HQ and ...
