even a 17-month-old can make a point

My youngest daughter's favorite thing to do these days is toddle over to my computer desk, furrow her brow while looking at me and pull my left arm down by my side while I'm typing. While she's using her right arm to pull my left arm away she uses her left hand to push in the pull-out keyboard shelf thing so I can no longer type. Do you think she's trying to tell me something? Somthing along the lines of "Hey, Mom, I'm kind of tired of your endless typing and lack of one-on-one attention. Could you get off your butt and like, feed me or change me or even play with me or something?" Yeah, I'm thinking that's just what she's trying to say...and trust me, it's pretty easy to listen when you're no longer able to reach the keyboard. (And yes, that's exactly how I look when I'm working on my computer.) --Emily
