Breakin' the Law, Breakin' the Law

I thought the laws of physics were finite. I thought that gravity worked. But where babies are concerned, it appears that all bets are off. Yesterday, Baby m spit carrots INTO HIS OWN EYE. For real. How on earth is that possible? I seem to remember E burbling the cereal and applesauce out in tiny flying globs, but I never saw it turn back around and smack her in the face like a boomerang.

During the same mushy carrot meal, Baby m also managed to CREATE MATTER. He actually had MORE carrots on his face and on his bib than there were in the bowl I started with. Where did the extra carrots come from? Could this be the answer to the world's food shortages predicted for the future? Give the food to babies and they can multiply it and shoot it into the atmosphere, where it will rain on the appreciative, hungry masses. Anybody want carrots?


BTW, that reminds me of a joke I love...

Question: What do you call a boomerang that doesn't work?
Answer: A stick.

I sure hope that E and Baby m think that mommy is funny.
