Weighing the Options

If I don't have coffee, I'm fine. It just takes me longer to stop being grouchy in the morning.

Every Other Word

As he kept singing his voice just got more and more gruffer. Doesn't let a little thing like words get in the way of singing!
If you don't know the song he's singing it's Superstar, from the Andrew Lloyd Weber musical Jesus Christ Superstar. as shown here: 
If you've somehow never seen this musical... you should.

It was scarier in the dream...

As a kid I would often have very vivid nightmares. Very weeeeeeeird vivid nightmares that would cause me to cry out random words or sleep walk (although it was more like random sleep activity, because I wouldn't leave the room and never involved walking). Erin told me many stories in the morning of weird things I did while still fully asleep. I don't remember the action but I still remember the dreams. I rarely have actual nightmares now.

No More Monkey's Jumpin' on the Bed!

My folly was not remembering that two seconds before this, Sarah had told me that Daniel had discovered the childhood pastime of jumping on the bed.
Jokes on them, my mattress at the time was so bad that I put a board beneath it, so they didn't bounce very well.

The Best Part About the Dentist Visit

I would pick pretty much anything other then the girly hair products if I thought I could. I don't know if dentists still do this with kids. All I get from the dentist now is a toothbrush and a reminder about how I'm not brushing my teeth right.

An Old Pro

The "argument" was about what was faster, a Cheetah or a Lion. I said cheetah Maggie said Lion. Oh she knows that cheetah's are faster, but this was a game. She later conceded that cheetah's are faster than lions. The next day we had another "argument" about which ONE of us said cheetah's are faster. I still won. (The trick is to remain impassive so your opponent get's louder and louder until their mom comes and tells them to stop yelling, or they get bored)

New Experiences

Finally introducing Hannah. The third in a short line of nieces!
She went back to gumming the celery stick shortly after being shocked by the sound. Don't worry she didn't eat any of it.

That is Bert from Mary Poppins. Hopefully you now have all the songs from that movie stuck in your head.

Lullaby and Good Nap

This is a tried and true method of getting temper-tantrum tired tots to mellow down. Wind blowing through the trees also works.
