Some Helpful Advice
Do not allow same 5-year-olds to make their own chocolate milk while you attempt to untie the knot in your 7-year-old's sneaker.
Do not offer hard Halloween candy to a child with a loose tooth.
Do not let a tiny tooth fall on the floor near your canine vacuum cleaner. According to your mutt, if it lands on the floor, it's fair game.
Do not allow less than thirty minutes to pack three kids into a station wagon, including shoes, socks, coats, and safety belts.
Do not. Repeat. Do not push the garage door button if the door is already open. As you back out of your garage and the door closes on your car, you will enjoy the sights and sounds of shattering glass.
Do not worry. Everyone is fine, except my harried nerves and the car, of course.
