Quick Hits

Some random observations from the past week…

Bri, I forgive you for laughing so hard when you noticed Daddy’s belly button for the first time today. (Mommy, I’ll eventually forgive you for encouraging her.)

You know your child is tired when she tries to climb into her crib.

You know your child’s an eater when he tries to climb into his high chair.

When you watch your children stand by themselves for the first time it’s exciting and sad at the same time.

No one tells you the horror you will feel when your child gets introduced to Elmo for the first time… and he likes it.

Spending naptime cuddling with your spouse is time well spent.


  1. Yeah… should have warned you about the Elmo thing. My bad.

  2. Hey wait, I thought I warned you about Elmo. Oh wait maybe it was Dora and Telletubbies. Nah, come to think about it, Elmo isn’t quite as bad.

  3. I specifically remember warning you about Elmo! You are now in the service of the furry red menace. Sorry.

    Just wait for the feeling of panic that will come when you discover that your child is climbing furniture.

  4. Well, I just found out Kevin “Elmo” Clash is black so I’m laying off the bad-mouthing for now. OK, he’s evil. Couldn’t help writing that… Wait until your children realize that everyone has a belly button, but boys and girls, um, well, differ. Let’s just say that early this year my son thought that mommy “broke hers.”

  5. I didn’t find Elmo as bad as the Teletubbies or Barney. I used to put up with Elmo. Now we don’t have TV connection, so no more Elmo.

  6. I have that Elmo problem, too.

  7. Barney was it for us too. However, now that he loves it I have bigger and greater fears like Telletubbies, Boombah and Oobi (nothing like teaching poor grammar right off the bat). Plus, that guy Leo on The Goodnight Show gives me the creeps.

  8. What ever happened to Bert and Ernie and the rubber duckie? Big Bird anyone?
