Isn't this heading in your baby book?

Baby's first paycheck, 2nd generation. Mmm, a tasty treat!

Coraline took over Aizay's old job. They kicked him to the curb when their funding period ended. You have to be wary of those soft money positions...

This actually isn't Coraline's first job. For her first job, she earned a $10 Walmart gift card and a pack of diapers. She let someone weigh her and take a couple drips of her blood. They let her go from that job after she developed a little formula habit. It was totally unfair because she doesn't have a problem or anything. She only has about 3 glasses bottles a week.

An evening at the Etlers

Dave, after Aizay throws toy across the room: Are you allowed to throw things?
Aizay: yes
Dave: What did you say?!
Aizay: silence
Dave: Are you allowed to throw things?
Aizay: yes
All hell breaks loose.
Christine and Dave talking over eachother: time out/go to your room/Why would you say that? It's a lie/Don't contradict me...
As Aizay walks to his roon wailing, Dave: Why did he do that? I don't know why he did that.
Christine: It's unlike him.

Later after Aizay is released from his timeout.
Aizay: I'm okay. I'm okay.
Dave: Now Aizay, are you allowed to throw things?
Aizay: I don't want to talk about it.
Dave: Are you allowed to throw things?
Aizay: silence
Answering for him, Dave and Christine: No, you're not!
Aizay, beseechingly: Don't tell me the truth!
Dave and Christine burst into laughter and there ends that teaching moment.

Do you think he planned it that way?

Saliva-ey Traveller.

Coraline is rolling around these days quite well, but we can always find her by following the trail of drool. Here she is peeking out from underneath the coffee table.

Aizay's trying out a new look. He thinks a vandyke will look pretty swank.
