Parenting Truth #1

Context: Helping one's child put his/her shoes on.

Truth: If you hold up the right shoe in preparation of easing it on, the child will lift his left foot. If you offer the left shoe, the child will lift her right foot.

This is why I've taken to tapping the foot I want. Sometimes I feel like I'm parenting deaf/blind children. Or that that situation could somehow be less frustrating. Or maybe I'm just going to hell.

Corollary: Same goes for gloves. And tights. And jacket sleeves. And socks. Oh, wait, no, not socks.

Very common misconception. When they do it right, you don't notice. Same thing with shark attacks are a big deal and what do you say when you don't get red lights when you're late. Related: "Why is it always in the last place I look?" It's because that's when you stop looking.
