How To Subdue A Wily Toddler

Henry was running through the house with his beloved blanket, thrashing it wildly around his head, wapping it at the cat, and draping it over his head like some kind of bizarre toddler turban.

After yelling a few useless things at him, such as "slow down," "you're going to fall," and the ever-ineffective "be careful!" I happened to say, "Dude, we used to use those thing to wrap you up and calm you down. They have TRULY lose their purpose, haven't they?"

He skidded to a stop. "You wapped Hendy up? Yike Maggie?"

"Yeah. When you were a baby, those were the blankies we used to swaddle you up and put you in your cribbie, just like Maggie."

Then David swooped in.

"Let's see if it still works!" he said.






Guys!

It totally still works!

CONSIDER THE POSSIBILITIES!

  3. Henry looks so perfectly at peace with the world. I want my own swaddle blanket. Is there anything comparable for adults?
