Never dare state aloud that things in your daily parenting life are going well and you are no longer tempted to sell your crabby baby to the gypsies nor run away to warmer climes. If you do dare make such claims, the following morning the baby will wake up with a runny nose (another cold? surely a cruel joke. it CAN'T be true, can it?) and will scream nonstop starting the moment Daddy leaves for work, until by only 8:30 in the morning you are already sweating and your heartbeat feels irregular and you are gulping coffee like water (energy! energy!) and frantically thinking what can be done, what can be done, to get everyone through this day in one piece.
