Lollipop Lessons

Lesson 1: If a bank teller gives a mother a handful of lollipops and her children don't notice she will tuck them into her purse and promptly forget about them.

Lesson 2: If a mother gets distracted by new carpet installation and dirty dishes the baby will seize the opportunity to sift through the contents of her mother's purse.

Lesson 3: If a 10-month-old rifles through her mother's purse she will undoubtedly find forgotten treasure in the form of a blue raspberry lollipop.

Lesson 4: It goes without saying... if a baby sister finds a lollipop she will help herself, so as to quietly enjoy it... paper and all.

Lesson 5: When a mother discovers her sticky, smiling baby and wrenches the soggy lollipop from a mischievous little hand, she will know that the person who coined the phrase, "It's as easy as taking candy from a baby," never took candy from a sweet toothed, fiery tempered, redheaded 10-month-old.

Lesson 6: It takes approximately 1.5 hours for an electric blue baby tongue to return to its original and natural healthy pink color.

Some days contain more lessons than others.
I'm just saying!
