Funny Kids Video: Bickering Be Gone With Ragu

May 7th, 2012

Today’s funny kids video was chosen by DH, who had just begun reading my current novel and thought the “evil kid” was a child-size version of my main antagonist. He’s since changed his mind, but we both still love this commercial.

Now, if only it were as easy to get a picky child to eat…

Happy Monday!

Spicy Tater Tot Memories And Babies Eating Lemons

April 30th, 2012

Who can forget babies firsts? I remember when DH, Blur and I went to Taco John’s the first time together. We ordered our favorite meals: 2 bean and cheese burritos, 2 soft shell tacos and a large order of potato oles. If you’ve never had a potato ole, let’s just say it’s a spicy tater tot. Delicious!

Blur was just beginning to eat big people food and was more than willing to try whatever new food we gave her, so naturally when Daddy gave her a potato ole she took a huge bite. Her eyes began to water and she gave me a look that could only be interpreted, “Why did you let him give me that?”

It was priceless.

Needless to say, Blur no longer trusts us when it comes to new food. *sigh* It was fun while it lasted. 😀

Here’s a great compilation video of babies eating lemons for the first time that made me remember Blur’s first taste of a spicy tater tot. It had me laughing so hard I cried.

Happy Monday!

Dance, Baby, Dance

April 23rd, 2012

DH, Blur and I went on a nice Sunday drive yesterday, when Lou Bega’s Mambo Number 5 came on. I love that song, so naturally I started dancing — if you can call wiggling around in your seat, strapped in with a seat belt, and waving your hands dancing, that is. When I looked back at Blur, she was grinning at me as if I were the funniest thing she’d ever seen.

Well, I don’t have a video to show you just how funny I looked (whew!), but it did make me think of baby Cory dancing to Beyonce’s All The Single Ladies. I adore watching this baby dance, so I thought I’d share the video. And to be quite honest, I think you’d thank me for showing this video instead. 😀

Happy Monday!
