I should probably do a recap of Christmas, but I just don’t want to. I’m pretty sure the pictures look very similar to last year’s pictures. We did pretty much the same wonderful things. Only this time Lucy, the E’s, and the G’s were there, too. Which made it even better. And that’s my summary of Christmas.
And now for a random list of things I thought about Twittering in the last month. Except almost none of you use Twitter. And I just don’t see the point of writing random stuff out for people I don’t really know. I’d rather bore you guys with it.
-Today I saw a mother wearing a tank top, short skirt, and flip-flops carrying a baby wearing fleece pants, a fleece hooded sweatshirt, and wool socks. Poor sweaty baby.
-To every Argentine who has ever scolded me for taking my baby outside without socks (and there are a lot of you): You are all crazy.
-Watched Goonies for the first time today. Obviously, you had to watch this as a kid.
-Playing pretend with the kids. At their request, I am the “evil queen who gets everything she wants.” This is a role I could get used to.
-I let my daughter snack on uncooked, dried pasta today. I think I need to go shopping. And maybe check online to see if that’s okay to eat.
-Reading Dickens. I wish I could call someone an “incapable pettifogger.” It would almost be worth living in 19th century London.
-Petticoats? Chamber Pots? Coal Smoke? Maybe I can live with just calling people morons.
-Am I the only one who hates the smell of raw potatoes? It’s such a musty old-lady smell. Ugh.
-My kids do one-hour rest time every afternoon in separate rooms. They hate it. Twice today Scott stuck his head out of his room and said, “Mommy, I can’t stay locked in this cage forever.”
-“It’s not a cage, it’s your bedroom” is now the title of my new book.
-Lucy is on the move. Not really crawling, but definitely rolling and stretching and slowly inching towards things.
-What, oh what am I going to do about all the little toys my kids leave everywhere?
Oh I love it all. And now I feel dumb about the random ridiculous things I write on Twitter. “I just ate three pieces of string cheese.” (YOU DID, Erin? DO TELL ME MORE. How fascinating!)
@ohthatsdoll – Erin, I love following you on Twitter. I never write anything, but I do read it. You crack me up all the time.
I love this post! I wish I were as witty as you are 🙂 Thanks for writing these down for us!
