"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes-and ships-and sealing-wax-
Of cabbages-and kings-
And why the sea is boiling hot-
And whether pigs have wings."

- The Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carrol
(From Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)

What Child is This?

There's a secret saying between parents that we have recently become privy to that illicits immediate sympathy and understanding that only a parent could know.

Four words. And they say so much about your emotional and mental state. They explain why your eyes are bloodshot from lack of sleep and your nerves are completely fried. They define why your previously easy-going, happy baby is suddenly the child of Satan.

"We think she's teething."

And that pretty much sums up this week.
