We feed the cat first

I just read this article on Babble about second kids getting the shaft.  As my mother's second child, I really don't feel that this is true, but as the mother, I can totally see it happening.  So, I am being proactive and in treating both my children equally by being as lazy as humanly possible with my first child.
It's cool.  She needs the fiber.
  • Almost all LO's clothes come from consignment shops or Goodwill.
  • I consider eight hours a fine amount of time to wear a diaper.
  • The 5 second rule for dropped pacifiers has been extended to a five day rule, as long as I pick off all visible dirt before putting it in her mouth.  Not that it matters because ....
  • LO considers the carpet in our living room an all you can eat buffet.
  • We have two baby books.  Both are completely blank that way all the children can share them.
Any confessions about your "forward thinking" in treating your children equally?


  1. Lol. We don't clean as often as we should so they can both have a diet of 3% dog hair and equally strong immune systems.

    1. Oh my gosh! We give the same rationale for LO. We figure if we expose her to dirt and cat hair now, she won't have allergies. That sounds plausible, right?

  2. Ha, ha. I love that photo of Amani eating a flower and completely agree that she need probably needs more fiber in her diet.

  3. Love, love, love!! With your relaxed style of parenting, your darling baby should be totally adjusted to the world!! :)
