From class this week:

Do not use tweezers or needles to remove debris from your infant's eyeball.

Really.

Youuuuuccch. You know that sometime, somewhere, some parent did this. I think many parents lose a mass quantity of brain cells when the baby is born. Not you, Amanda Sue. Both others. I've seen it.

Oh GREAT. Next, I bet they'll say I shouldn't spray Lysol down her diaper to cut the peepee smell?

What's the world of parenting coming to?

it wasn't exactly stated in class, but daniel decided that pliers would not be a good alternative.

we're smart like that.

well, if we're handing out helpful advice, the instructions for my curling iron tell me NOT to plug it in, turn it on, put it in my hair, and then go to sleep. Also, no bathing during use.

man, it's scary that they have to tell people not to stick something sharp in a child's eye.

This reminded me of something Jerry Seinfeld said: "Do we really still need directions on shampoo bottles?"

Where are you getting these from? Is there a packet or something? There is no way that they said these things out loud... or you must be in a class of complete idiots that asked the question that started this bit of advice. :)
