Day 5 - A Double Header

As it turns out I have already had two moments of gratitude this morning.

#1- R.E.M. was on Sesame Street this morning which made it imparative we all stop for a spontaneous living room dance party. Shiny Happy Monsters, indeed.

#2-Clara and I were preparing to take our shower together. I was running around collecting clothes and towels and she was streaking through the house in delicious naked-baby glee. When from out of the living room I hear Ben yell "Oh, Oh, Oh, Cwara, Yucky!"

What I was thankful for at that moment.... Hardwood floors.

REM was on Sesame Street? Surely you jest! DANG!

I remember reading about R.E.M's appearance on Sesame Street - apparently they had to film it in the morning, which just about killed the band, since they were used to getting up mid-afternoon.

LOL! I've been thankful for the hardwood floors in KayTar's room on more than one occassion. Her messes usually involved the other end though. ;)

Do you know how often you make me laugh out loud?!?

Pumpkin spit up so much as a baby that we got to where we wouldn't even burp her unless we were standing over the hardwood floors. I can still hear that "Splat!"

Oh, that was funny. We've seen that episode of Sesame Street once or twice, although it never occurred to me to stop and dance.

I remember that episode...Will & I used to dance to it, well jump like they did.. (I think we saw it more than once).

I have laminate floors - just as easy to clean, although messes are invariably made on the rugs instead. What's the deal with that?

Hardwood floors are definitely a blessing. Besides toddlers, we used to have an old dog. A very old dog.

I have said too much.
