Random Babble

I cannot tell you how hard it is to take a digital picture of 2 small children and have them both looking in the same direction. It seems that something in their genetic makeup makes them look away in the instant before the digital camera goes off. Honestly I thought Adam was going to throw the camera through my parents living room window trying to take a picture of the girls.

On a totally different train of thought, I was thinking about Sara's blog about the universe today. (You have to go to "In Your Face McGinley" because I don't know how to link to a specific blog entry) Anyway, she writes about how the universe doesn't hear negatives. For instance, when I say "my children will not watch tv all day long." The universe hears, "my children will watch tv all day long and as punishment momma will then have songs from Blues Clues permanently embedded in her brain." How did we get to the point where Addie knows all of the characters on all of the toddler shows? She actually said this morning, "Little Einsteins, I missed you!" Geez, kid! Go, play outside! Oh yeah, one of us would have to take her outside and it's darn cold out today. And did I tell you my child runs like a girl? So when I said, "We're going to have a tomboy, there's no way we'll have a girly-girl." Basically God laughed his/her ass off and gave us a girly-girl. I-yi-yi! (yes, I know I swore on the blog and someone will probably chastise me for this.)
