A Useful Parenting Tip From Me To You

Because We Care.
At great personal cost to me and mine, I bring you the following fun fact to learn and know:
Giving an already fiesty 17 month old a rudimentary crumb of an m&m, even if she sees her older brother eating a few of them and loudly bemoans the unfairness until you are a guilty, frazzled nub of a human being, is a bad idea. Unless you enjoy being awake until 4 in the morning with a hyperactive toddler. It turns out that I don't.

Ah, what a fun night. I love not sleeping.

I remember another cute toddler girl who did that even without an m&m morsel (-:
