May 2: Educate us on something you know a lot about or are good at. Take any approach you’d like (serious and educational or funny and sarcastic)
Heh. How to stand your ground with a 12 month old. Buckle yourselves in, folks. I know a lot about this one.
Step 1: Find 12 month old. Example: Avery.
Step 2: Have something that 12 m.o. wants. Example: Delicious homemade caramels. drool.
Step 3: Share a little with the kid. She’s being good, after all.
Step 4: Put item away and say/sign “All done!”
Step 5: Try to ignore the adorable girl saying “Moe.” Avery speak for “More.”
Step 5: When the girl starts yelling and whining “Moe, moe, moe!” try to explain, “No. Really. We are all done!”
Step 6: Hide desired item from the girl. But she’s too clever and starts searching for it.
Step 7: Resist the big blue eyes. Resist!
Step 8: Give her “moe” caramel. Because we all knew Step 7 was meant to fail.
Sorry, Jeremy. Until she stops asking for things, you will have to be Bad Cop. It’s your fault she has those big blue eyes anyway.
