clearly, i'm new at this "mom thing"

i put bennett
down for his
second nap around
he didn't wak
up after
2 hours
so i let him
sleep...for some
crazy reason i thought
he might just sleep

through the night.

then midnight rolled
around and he was
nice and rested so he
could have the
energy to keep us up

turning their attention
to mr. jimmy fallon
(elmo was the guest)

i'm pretty sure i
learned my lesson

Too soft?

Every time I've visited the vending machine for anything other than a drink in the last year, I have always chosen the same thing- 2 soft Grandma's cookies.I take them outside for a little 55 cent picnic before my last class of the day.
Today I asked myself, how do they make these so incredibly soft? I looked on the back to find their secret:I think the magic ingredients are "soy lecithin, BHT, Propylene Glycol mono- and diesters of fats and fatty acids, and Mono- and diglycerides"

Just like Grandma used to make 'em

9 Mumfers

the little kiddo
is a whopping
nine months
and dave made
this lovely
little film
to show everyone
all the fun
we've been
having these days

he's crawling
around like crazy,
"talking", pulling
himself up, trying
to walk, loves
dancing to music,
and has two
teefers and a
rockin' head
of hair.

we love
love love
you benners.
