To the woodland creatures on the wall runner in Kira's room:
Please stop pestering my daughter. I am tired of hearing about it at night and in the morning. No more "bunking of the head" no "moose poking the eye" and by all means no "eagle poop de pants!".

And which one of you is talking to her about Darfur?
K this morning: "Darfur! Momma Darfur!"
Me "What? What are you learning in circle time?"
K: "No. Darfur. RAWR!"
Me: "Ah, Dinosaur!"
So..dinosaurs. Stop having discussions with my political activist baby. Next thing you know she'll be lobbying for health care reform, and that's the type of discussion I'm not expecting to have for at least a few months.

And as for Swiping. OK? If I hear another sippy drop to the ground and "Oh, NO! Swiper STOP!" or "Oh, NO! Swiper hide de BOOTS" I'm coming after you!

And which one of you goes by "SUPER-POOPY!" Let's have none of that super poop either.

Thank you,
the managment

For those of you looking for great giveaways and reviews, I'll be posting these at:

In other family news, K is still a fantastic child. The unboundless energy she has in the morning is infectious. This morning, I found her already sitting up in her bed, taking charge of the day by rearranging her binkies in her crib. Suddenly, I heard "Panda!" "Ud One" "a Ud One!" describing her sleeper with lots of pandas on it. When her feet hit the floor, she was immediately off to find Daddy and tell him all about her pandas.

Yesterday, I heard in day care how all she could talk about was her Gamma and Papa. All day. She told everyone about Gamma and Papa, where they are (she still thinks they are in the airplane, although sometimes she supsects they are still waiting in the car).

One tough thing to realize is that in her world, TV shows are just always available -- with Tivo she thinks her sources of entertainment are endless. If we run through all the backyardigans, she thinks that if we just look at the right menu, they'll reappear. When they are not there, she gets frustrated...literally pulling the remote from one parent and handing it to another (obviously, it's there, we're just incompetent). She then explains in a very authoritative voice "b'yargins, Oh-Tay?" and nods her head like she's looking for agreement. I wonder where she gets these things from.

In other news, it's fall. Our tomatoes are not red yet, which is a bad sign. I think frost is only a week away or so.

Got to go, but that's the update!

Better late than never?

Another funny story about Kira (in between meetings)...

So two nights ago, Kira woke up, as she usually does, around 3am. However, this time it was a full on screamfest for quite a few minutes. Frank got up to check on her. Kira kept talking about a Moose. He brought me in, and Kira informed me that a moose had poked her in the eye. When I asked where? She pointed at the woodland creatures in the wallpaper in her room. Great. Woodland creatures coming to life and poking my daughter in the eye at 3am. Ugh. Finally got her back to sleep around 4am to make a conference call at 4:45am. Argh!
