      I don't know if we're going to have a third. Seems unlikely; juggling
      two is hassle enough, three might make it worse. It *is* possible,
      though. In fact, that might be part of why we're taking the daughters
      of a friend of ours this weekend (nine years old and one year old) --
      see if we can handle having more little ones around.

      Yes, I know how to take care of a baby. Delegate! *g*

      A friend of mine, his younger sister was born in the hospital parking
      lot. She was *tiny*. I don't know that she ever got big, in fact --
      her mom wasn't all that big herself.

      I remember when she was a teenager she was able to get into the house,
      even with the door chained. Her arm was skinny enough that she could
      open the door a bit, reach around and slide the chain... from the
      outside. Granted, that also means the chain was too long, but still.

      Another time she had handcuffs on. Briefly.[1] She put her hands down
      in front of her and they fell off.

      [1] no, I don't remember why. I was a little curious about it, though.
      She was small, but terribly cute.

      Sounds like a good idea.

      I assume you got up so it could be unfolded, yes?

      I found when Cai was born I'd sack out and doze for a bit. Not full-on
      sleep, but at least get my eyes closed for a while.
