Weird title, I know, but those are the three things I want to share today.
My daughter shocked my hubby and I yesterday. He was counting in Spanish (why? I have no clue) and after he said cuatro my daughter yells "cinco." I turned to my husband and gave him a "how in the hell does she know that," look. He kept counting and paused to see if she knew any other numbers. She went all the way up to 10!! The only thing I can figure is that she learned it by watching Dora the Explorer.
My daughter is also obsessed with Baby Einstein. And when I say obsessed, I'm not just exaggerating for effect. She wakes up in the morning talking about it. Well, her latest binge has been Baby Wordsworth. In it, Marlee Matlin uses sign language and J has picked up about 10 words. She can sign table, piano, computer, thank you, thirsty, tired, happy, chair, swing, and refrigerator. Who says TV rots your brain?
Oh, and if you haven't checked out Diary of a Reluctant Housewife you need to get your butt over there ASAP. She has double dog dared us all to pull out those old teenage journal entries. Oh don't even act like you don't have them. She posted some lovely poetry from her youth and I thought it would be fun to take her up on her offer. I have to dig deeper for the poetry but here's a little sample from a deranged journal entry.
I am utterly and completely in love.
For the first time I know what love is.
I want to spend the rest of my life with him (I was 17!!)
He loves me back too and in a way that feels so good.
When we kiss everything around me disappears.
I want to spend every minute of every hour of every day with him.
UUGGGHHHHH Can you hear me puking?!?!?!?
