Do these family-living proverbs sound familiar?
Axioms: Birth to One Year, Babies look exactly like which ever side of the family is visiting.
Axioms: One to Two Years, Babies get too tired to walk as soon as your hands are full. Every baby knows toys belong on the floor outside the playpen.
Axioms: Two to Three Years, A two-year-old wakes up from his nap exactly five minutes after you begin yours. The day your long-awaited family vacation begins, at least one child will have a fever.
Axioms: Three to Four Years, Any three-year-old who can pour his own milk will knock over the glass as soon as its filled. All knock-down, drag-out fights can be mediated with chocolate chip cookies.
Axioms: Four to Five Years, if you cook something new for dinner no child over three will eat it. Never tell a four-year-old who dressed herself that the checked pants don't go with the print shirt.
Axioms: Five to Six Years, All five-year-olds want to ride their bikes to school like the big kids, but training wheels aren't cool No child is tired enough for a nap after kindergarten. He just lies on the floor and rests his eyes a lot.
