The View from Here

Madison's West Side--represent.

So it's snowing (again) and the house is messy (again) and I should be cleaning up or doing laundry or trying to figure out my kindergarten class literacy block or something. But everyone I know, up to and including my kids, have blogs now. And not one to jump too early on a trend, I figure it's time I had one, too. Actually, I've been meaning to start one for a while, if only to show off pictures of the kids. But I don't take enough pictures of the kids. And then there was school, and, well, the new TV season, and you get the idea. But it's winter break. And the writer's strike has opened up a hole in our recreational life (can you say "Crowned" anyone?). So I suddenly find myself with all this free time. A blog? What the hell.

Actually, winter break is flying by, surprise sur
prise. Not that we're doing much of anything. Yesterday Molly went to the ENT. She needs tubes in her ears. I was actually really curious about how they did a hearing test on a one-year-old. Turns out, it involves a microphone, Tigger, and Winnie-the-Pooh. Today, I introduced the kids to the iconic cinematic experience that is Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Mother of the Year right here.

So that's it for now. I gotta go
buy a stove. (What's your opinion on ugly black and white speckled stovetops? Will we grow to hate our kitchen?) And since this is really just an excuse to post some pictures of Molly, I'll do that now. Later!

Molly in her new bear hat. Awesome, right?

And marinara sauce makes a lovely hair mask.

Miss Molly's preferred sleeping position. I've tried it, but I just can't get comfortable.

All my babies. Aren't they bee-you-ti-ful??
