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. She put her hands down
in front of her and they fell off.
 no, I don't remember why. I was a little curious about it, though.
She was small, but terribly cute.

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.
