Newton's laws interpreted

If Newton figured out gravitation when he saw an apple fall from a tree, he must have figured out inertia when he saw a child idling through the morning routine.

Case in point:
* If the Scout is taking a bath, he wants to continue with the bath till the water freezes over.
* If the Scout is eating his favorite breakfast (fruitloops or raisins or bububu (blueberry)), he wants to continue eating them till the box is empty.
* If the Scout wants to run around in his diapers, he is going to run around till the evil mommy chases him and drags him to get dressed.

I guess, the "greater force" that Newton's laws talk about is the mommy here! :P

Number of gray hairs plucked from head: 1

The things you do for your kid..

As part of my parenting duties, I single-handedly ate one packet of MnM's and a million jelly beans in the span of 30 mins.

Why?: So the Scout doesn't make them his dinner. What better way to hide them than eat them? ;-)

Lesson learnt: Jelly beans are so damned hard to resist. They come in a million flavors and colors. There are dotted ones, ones with tiny splattering of colors, multi-colored ones and flavors like strawberry cheesecake, pinacolada, margarita, bubblegum, cotton candy, mint, mocha, coffee, orange, lime, pomegranate, cherry to name a few. How does one stop without tasting everything, eh?
