Teaching my boys not to shake a baby


Yesterday we had a lovely trip to our Aunt's house about an hour and a half away. It was our cousins graduation party. I made my first ever three tiered cake. It turned out AWESOME. See recipe below. A good time was had by all. However, Dimitri was over-tired and cried the whole way home. Not just cried, but wailed, shrieked, hysterically cried. There was nothing we could do to comfort him. The cries grated on all our nerves, but Timmy and I continually reminded everyone to remain calm and ignore him (other than when we tried to comfort him). It was about an hour straight of this torture, but I'm proud to say we made it home and in good spirits and it was a lesson for the older boys about how to handle the situation if they are ever with an inconsolable baby.
