Riddle Me This

*(Bad picture, sorry!) Why, after Sophie was born did they give me (and all the other mothers) a piece of umbilical cord to keep? All the moms I asked said they didn't really know why, but that they wouldn't dare throw it away. Yes, it is in there. No, I haven't opened the box.* Spaghetti makes a great headband. Why didn't I think of that?

* Why does our aparment elevator always smell like someone ate a bushel basket full of asparagus and then peed?

* Why as I almost broke my nose tripping over toys and falling on my face, both kids laughed. (Sophie's first real laugh!) Priceless!!

* Why when Sophie was only a few days old MIL suggested it would be ok to leave her sleeping alone in the apartment while I went to the store, but is disgusted at the fact that Bailey sleeps in his own room (usually) and not in bed with us?

* Why does taking a drink directly from the faucet (Bailey's favorite new trick) taste better than water from a cup?

When you figure it out, let me know.
