Labels, etc.

I'm going to have to get into labels, because I'm starting a list of things things that moms should know before giving birth. Today's query? What do ducks eat? I certainly hope Kix and Chex both fall on that list, because that's what I had in the car and so that's what the ducks ate, but I'm sort of worried that we'll go back next week and find them all dead, and then I'll have to explain duck-death to a traumatized toddler who will continue to sign "Ducks Eat" long after I'm finished.

For the record, the title issue reared its ugly head again last night and I've decided to give myself a one month probation before I can consider another change. I know, how can a miscellaneous title cause me grief? Oh, maybe it's too long, or a cop-out, or too quick a solution. The whole thing prompted me to look up "neurotic" just to make sure I wasn't using it inappropriately: "a person suffering from a relatively mild personality disorder typified by excessive anxiety or indecision and a degree of social or interpersonal maladjustment" ( Sounds appropriate to me.

I'm pretty sure Kix, Chex, and Lucky Charms are a duck's standard diet in the wild.
