epilogue to the rant
Today, Friday, is my day off, and R didn't have any morning appointments, so we slept until C woke us up, at 8:15. Then we had pancakes.
Yes, we are a two-career family, but mornings like this one are the X factor. Flexibility is nice.
As I write this, I am washing and drying the maternity clothes that have been in storage for the past two years.
So it goes. Sigh.
I will also be breaking out the pregnancy yoga video later today.
conversations with C
C's annoying habit is the whining request, "I need to..."
"I need my giraffe!"
"I need my red socks!"
Oh, it is irritating, and I wondered where she got it until I actually listened to myself:
"Wait here C, I need to go brush my teeth."
"I need you to sit still while I comb your hair."
Well, at least I do not whine when I say it. [haughty]
When we tell her that whining doesn't get her what she wants, and ask if she can think of a better way to say it, she says, "May I have a _______ please?" Ugh, how long do we have to wait for her to say it that way consistently the first time?
I'm sure if I were staying at home with her she'd have perfect manners.
Ah, sarcasm. The grumpy person's wit.
Also if you don't respond promptly enough in a conversation, she will fill in the response for you.
C: May I watch Sesame Street?
C: Yes, you can. Let's go downstairs.
Uh, thanks honey.
Oh, and does every toddler have a knack for stepping right where one's foot is? She crunches my toes a couple times a day.
Anybody watching 30 Days with Morgan Spurlock? Last night we caught the latest episode, which was the conservative Christian living in the Castro with a gay man for a month. Interesting stuff.
Spurlock seems to have a knack for finding likable subjects for this show. But there's a clear agenda too. I don't know if that's good or bad, but I think the "send the conservative to a liberal enclave to cure his ignorance" tack might get old. The point seems to be to build tolerance, and that's certainly a good thing. But I know some pretty damn intolerant liberals.
I'm trying to think of scenarios I might pitch for this show. How about a public school advocate goes to live for a month with a home-schooling family? Or a PETA activist goes to work on a family cattle ranch?
I don't know why this amuses me to think about, but it does. Can you think of others?
