I'm on the look out for the inevitable chasm I'm going to have to lay my body over for her to use me as a bridge.

Th-Th-Th-That's All Folks
Having had the opportunity to spend an extended weekend with my little 13 month old daughter, I've come to realize how my life often turns into a Warner Bros. cartoon with the late Chuck Jones as the director. Much like the poor sap who is suddenly thrown into babysitting circumstances, I chase after her all day long, catching the proverbial anvil in the head to save her own head, or my absolute favorite... Catching her in mid-air as she falls off of a piece of furniture and her head is barely an inch or two above the ground... I then set her down, and she keeps going without missing a beat. I strongly suspect that she puts this repeated experience down to one fact... She can fly. Never having hit the ground when she falls off of her little chair/train table/sofa/etc, she must have come to the conclusion that her little body defies gravity.
