As a former disease mule, I want my kid to avoid following in my footsteps by not wearing a clear slick of goo on his face like some shiny, transparent ninja mask. (Note: My poor mom and dad did their best before doctors finally determined I just needed my tonsils and adenoids removed.)
|They'll always have the market cornered when it comes to|
learning about eyebrows and turtle necks.
It's my belief that, eventually, he'll come around and eat the food in front of him. (Note: This theory/approach has been neither viewed nor approved by Mrs. Blackwell; but like all of my awesome parenting ideas, I think she'll go for it.)
Ultimately, babies with germs are something he'll run into anywhere. And healthy, organic food and super-cool baby toys are hardly points of legitimate concern.
