The Daughter Chronicles

Things I thought I would never do but now don't seem so weird as a parent

Today I stuck my thumb in my younger daughter's mouth and scraped a mass of bread and cheese off of its roof. That's something I couldn't even conceive of before I had children, but it seemed perfectly natural this afternoon. Norah was eating a ham-and-cheese sandwich and she apparently bit off more than she could chew. She has not figured out how to get food off the roof of her mouth yet, so she appealed to the all-knowing father figure in her life, Daddy. Daddy, needless to say, was up to the task, and she continued eating merrily!

Parenthood: Oh, the odd things you'll do!
