Although it might be convenient to have eyes in the back of your head, it might not be the best look. In fact, your hair would probably cover those eyes, so you would have to shave it around the eye area. Great for the eyes, not always having hair in them and all, not so good for your sex appeal… especially if you have a funny shaped back of the head.
But you know what else does not make you a man magnet? A baby…. So I would totally dig an extra pair of eyes. I would even take a few on my shoulders and back of my knees just to really get the full panoramic picture of what The Munch is up to.
For instance, I was in the kitchen the other day, doing the arduous task of unloading, then loading the dishwasher. I know. I know. Serious stuff to complain about here. I put The Munch on the kitchen floor where she seemed to be having a good time eating bits of onion that had fallen on the floor. That or glass… I wasn’t really paying attention.
Anyway… I started getting kind of annoyed as she was making this really awesome sound that reminded me of a car alarm. So I threw one of her chewie toys for her to go fetch… I know… I know… where do I come up with these amazing parenting techniques?
She went after the toy, which was out of my line of site considering I still only have eyes on my face, and actually seemed content and peaceful. I continued cleaning up enjoying the calm even though in the back of my mind I started to feel like she was being too quite. But, I figured she was obviously entertained by something and that is where my thought process stopped. For some reason I didn’t start clouding my mind with what that “something” might be.
Then I heard that classic cough and gag of choking on something…
I ran over to her, and saw my child next to the dog food bowl with her mouth full of… dog food.
She really is a genius.
(If you notice the brown tinted stains on her outfit… those are dog food drool)
