Feasting on the scriptures


No, Kathryn, that was not meant to be literal.

It’s a little hard to see in this picture (especially since I’d already done some quick fixing), but Kathryn got hold of my scriptures and soaked a few pages.  I was surprised that they mostly straightened back out – at first I’d thought she’d ripped out a few!  Apparently she wanted to devour 1 Samuel (trying to learn more about her ancient namesake, I guess – Ann is derived from Hannah), and tried a bit of Ruth, too.  This particular page was the wettest.  :)  Luckily, I rescued them pretty quickly.  :)

Also – word to the wise – babies like to suck on chins.  And while the usual response is to stop them, there are times that you are just so tired and so ready for them to stop crying that you just want to give in and let them do it, maybe a just a little bit.  Resist.  Believe it or not, that sucking is likely to produce either a bright red hicky or a blackish bruise.  Or will progress from one to the other.  I’m not sure which is worse.

  1. Hmmm, taking it on the chin, are we?

  2. How would you get a bruise from a baby sucking on your chin?
