Mommy happy hour usually included boring vanilla lattes and ice cappuccinos, important as it masqueraded as a child’s story time. I was so lucky to stumble upon it and, once I started going, I made sure to keep going.
Inspired by a letter to Santa from a 10 month old baby, this week I am imagining what my Wee One would like for Christmas.
Mirrors. She loves mirrors. She geeks out whenever she spys her reflection in something, and I hope that she always looks upon herself with such glee.
A piece of yarn. She’ll hold it over her head, twist her hand around to watch it fall, put the end of it in her mouth. Its precious.
An iphone. I rarely let her play with mine, which only increases the attraction, I know. Hence its place on her wish list.
A go-go-gadget extendable arm. Something that will allow her to reach the little things like candles and keys and machetes that mom puts a little too far away.
A disembodied head. Something with hair she can pull with impunity, a mouth she can fishhook, and eyes she can gouge.
Paper. Lots of paper to crinkle and eat.
A cord. Any kind will do: computer, vacuum, TV.
Buttons. She just recently found them (sewn onto a shirt!) but I think she would like to see more. And maybe off a shirt, so she can just look at the whole button on its own.
Okay, only eight. But she’s only nine months, so to her, this is a lot. And In case anyone wonders, Santa will not be bringing her any of those things. Not because of any naughtiness but just because there are better things waiting. 🙂
I’m a little sad tonight and I wasn’t able to write earlier, and I’m marathoning Doctor Who on Netflix. So to give us something to cheer up, I’m sharing this skit from Comic Relief between Catherine Tate and David Tennant:
After an incident at work the other day, I learned about this blog, Girl, You Lost Your Weave about hair pieces that are lost around St. Louis. This intrigued me about other quirky websites. I went on a hunt and found the following:
There is a you tube sequence of videos that my supervisor found about a year ago. Called Kid Snippets, they are short little videos of adults (I think they’re brothers) acting out a dialogue spoken by kids, I believe their own children. So it’s a family affair! These particular videos are a part of a greater whole that the brothers do, I believe, according to their website. I have not looked up the other videos yet, and wanted to share with you one that I think is the best, IMHO. Math class.
