What we can learn about people from observing babies.

Food is the Number One Priority in Life. Period.

Sometimes, we just don't know what we want.

We need routine, (even if we think we don't.)

Smiling can change someone's perception of you.

Whoever invented the term, 'Sleep like a baby' had never had one.

(Artist Naomi Dawson. Order prints at Red Bubble).

We connect with some strangers and not others, and who knows why.

We are much happier after a good crap.

A person's size is inversely proportional to the amount of noise they make.
(also known as Napoleon Syndrome).

We like the familiar.

Just because we cry doesn’t mean we’re sad.

Insisting on having it your way doesn't mean that it’s all going to work out.

We are by nature, contradictory.

We are easily entertained, but just as easily bored.

We don't always know what's good for us.

No matter how adorable you are, you can still be considered a pain in the ass.

It's impossible to be happy all the time.

Thanks to my daughter Tilly, who didn't really have to do anything but contributed to this post all the same.

Care to make any additions?

My Books


  1. This is a sweet weaving of the prolific and humorous. My favorite is the one about sleeping like a baby. It was probably coined by some motherless woman who's small but makes a lot of noise because she thinks she knows it all (someone like me). ;0)
    Hugs to you, friend.

  2. Enlightening for new parents! lol! Thankfuly mine are grow, still cute, but now they have a wife if they need to be a pain...:)))

    Huhs! Arielle.

  3. Very nice! Great pics too!

    I like your powers of observation and putting them into context in such a small piece of work is refreshing...


  4. You've put together some interesting "facts" so appealingly.

    Good work!
