Looks so cute

We’re planning to visit in early December. I just have this song in my head now.

Baby, baby, please let me hold her
I want to make her stay up all night
Sister, sister, she’s just a plaything
We want to make her stay up all night
Yeah we do

We’ll only be staying for a little while, so we gotta do what grandparents gotta do: spoil her and overstimulate her and make her stay up all night.

    Well, there is a valid evolutionary psychology hypothesis here, I’m sure you will concede. As I’ve said before, there are some simple facts about our hard wiring that are pretty obvious. Find me a culture where people generally aren’t besotted with their grandchildren.

    You have to be pretty hard hearted not to notice the sleep deprived face of your grandchild’s mother, in that picture. It’s been a few decades since I was in her place but I remember the exhaustion of being the mother of a newborn. While you’re riling up the baby, at least allow Mom to have a nice long nap.
    I had forgotten all about that Talking Heads song.

    “There’s going to be doting, isn’t there?”
    I think the question is who is going to be worse. PZ or Mary? The race is on….
