Anatomy of a cry

This is a brief tutorial for all of my baby friends out there who are struggling with getting your parental units/care givers to cater to your every whim. Follow my instructions step by step and you, too, can be on the path to getting everything you've always wanted.
1. Lull parent/caregiver into a false sense of security with a genuine-looking grin, a little giggle may be thrown in for good measure.

2. Give them a split-second notification that you may be getting ready to lay it on 'em if the situation is not changed. This look should be brief and easily missed.

3. Give parent/caregiver the most pathetic dog-eyed face you can.

4. If dog-eyed face doesn't work, try to squeeze out a few tears.

5. If situation remains un-remedied, spiral into a full-on wail.

6. Once parent/caregiver has given into your demand (and, believe me, they will) give them a kiss to reassure them that they are doing the right thing.

I am currently working on a step-by-step video series. Watch for my latest release, "Sleep Deprivation - Your biggest ally" later this fall.

Too cute! Tell Cailyn not to teach Baby Everett any of her sly tricks. :)
