How to Stop a Crying Baby
In our house, we get on each other’s nerves from time to time.
Shocking, I know.
This morning, when Claire woke up too early and subsequently found tears in everything she did, it eventually led to Mae waking up early. But she seemed happy enough, bouncing in her crib.
Then I made the biggest mistake of a cranky baby: I set her down.
I know, I know. I’m such a bitch.
But I could clearly see that these were crocodile tears at best and decided to break out the best trick I know to stop a cranky, crying, whining kid.
See, in the past, when Claire is having one of her meltdowns, I take pictures of her and have her look at them. 99% of the time, this leads to her laughing at herself because she looks ridiculous.
But Mae isn’t Claire’s age. A photo simply isn’t enough. (Sorry, Ett.)
So instead, I videoed her.
See? Works every time.
