as a single parent in McCall:
1. make sure grandpa is fully established as a very cool guy before ever leaving home. I'm pretty sure his new toy wins him the title.
2. Make sure wetsuits fit.
3. And life jackets. That fully squish their faces.
4. Be prepared with milk at all times. Especially when out on the lake at feeding time.
5. Again, make sure cheeks are easily accessible at all times.
6. Provide plenty of sand for throwing, dumping on your own head and the occasionally tasting.
