Las: week --as "C-e: More Sleep Week", and it is interesting to aste t-~at tie r«'o weeks dD not run concurrently. Once there's a baty ^^-e ^-'- ES « parents find themselves sleeping wUen tie baby :sr.'t locking. ~ SLEEPING KA3ITS AREN'T THE ONLY things that change with the arrival o! Baby. It is ar-anng how one^lirJe person whose only accomplishments are eating, sleeping ^and yeiiing can take over a whole household. T«: nir— .ally uidepencent peopae suddenly find themselves King r-'-ei by His y.ajesty, itn* Esa-y, and they gladly rearrange their livisj sc.v=::— e :D -it .-~.

Graadma I SHALL NTYZ5 FORGET THE FIRST time we leit ctr first- tcm an-d went ox. f:-r a lirJe entertai piaiaed to be "gone. I lei her wi± ade^^ate instnictions - two ?ag=s of them - on e&ctlv hew to care for him, includii^ feeding and terpiag p:tK»x::r=s, diaper chanres and our doctor's h-oss aad Df£se telephone numbers. Graidma had raised five "bailies, "out she had never eaten care of a "Special One" like ccrs. About half-way through ±e movies, 1 guiltily rememV«ered res* I "HE! not slven mv bairy a thought for at least ten minutes. At tome, tie bary slept the entire two hours: WEZ^rVEE I AM TEMPTED TO BE a little smug about how bus;.- the mothers of first babies are, I have only to remember myself at that stage. Never before or since have I worked so hard. The secoofaae is a lot easier, bat rarely resembles the first one is habits, and you have to learn all over again. It is then thai you start propping up fee bottle once in a while and giriag him Ms airing, without pushing him downtown. But it is wonderful to have enough time to care for your baby the way you know it should be COGS. - o - I AM '-. CO.NTIEMZD BABY CARRIAGE peeksr-inser and I have yet to find a baby I didn't thin/: was attractive. Of course, my own were all exceptionally beautiful, weren't yours? It is a typical male -originated fallacy that all aewborns loci alike, and none too pretty a that. We girls know it just isn't so. O&e man, upon seeing a group of blanket-wrapped new-boms, lined up in the hospital, said they looked just like so many Hot Dogs! - o - THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT BABY CARE is that fathers have finally found that they are capable of holding, feeding asd even bathing their tiny infants' It is very fashionable for them 'o do so. What's more, they are enjoying it! So it isn't only Mother who is helped by this new trend. This all started, I think when fathers who were away at the war, came home and found they bad missed out on a lot of fun during their first baby's infancy. With subsequent children they made up for lost time and found that baby care is fun for daddy, too, and other fathers caught on. A new baby will not break so easily as it might seem. But they do bend alarmingly and in some of the most unlikely places. - o - I RECEIVED ANOTHER OF THOSE NICE friendly letters. This time it was from Mrs. Robert Detrick, Algona. This week's subject should be right down her alley for she has tvo babies, 3 months and 16 months old. Both of them are cutting teeth. She says, "I wonder if all farm mothers nave as much trouble keeping their toddlers clean as I do. Would certainly appreciate any hints anyone might have on how to train a 16- month-old '«tio changes his habits as fast as you think you have him squared around." I don't think the dirt problem is confined to farm mothers. I have lots of ideas or. the latter subject, but most of them don't work. At least till Baby is older. - o - THE BOX ELDER PROBLEM IS STILL v.ith us, judging from the mail. This week heard from Mrs. Ray Kading of Fentoii arid Mrs. Julis Pergande of Lu Verne. I haven't heard yet how effective Grace's box elder bug remedy is, but 1 hope it is working. - o - I TALKED WITH MRS. J. C. MAWDSLEY downtown Saturday and she said her solution to the leftover bread problem :s to make it into French toast. Her teenagers, Richard arid Mary, eat big breakfasts of it. Mrs. Mawdsley said she had planned to write to this column, but she thought perhaps I had too much mail! Perish the thought. I doubt if any columnist, even Billy Rose, ever gets too much mail. Although more letters are coming in than before, I am anxiously waiting to hear from more of you. - o - OPHELIA, THE KITCHEN CYNIC, HAS this to say of Baby Week. "There is one way that an argument and a family are just alike. It takes two to start either."
