I’m not a very experienced parent — my first daughter, Baylor, is just over 16 months old. So I don’t claim to have heaps of knowledge when it comes to bringing up the little ones. [See my questions on corporal punishment.] But every now and again I do realize that I’ve figured something out — that I understand yet another truth about children and/or parenting. I thought I might as well start keeping record. Here is Brett’s Parental Wisdom #1:
There is a direct correlation between
a child’s current disposition and
that child’s susceptibility to mishap.
or, in other words:
The grumpier the baby,
the more likely she’ll trip while walking
and land on her head.
