What I didn’t blog about this week

Saturday and Sunday – I learned a few important lessons from babysitting 2-year-old twins this past weekend:

1. Even the pickiest, pint-sized eater will succumb if you put enough ketchup on the plate.

2. Dora the Explorar is the greatest television show in the history of broadcasting.

3. You’re never too young to scam when you want something bad enough.

Side note: I didn’t change a single diaper the entire weekend. Thanks, Max!


Monday – 5lbs!! I finally got my act together and committed to a diet. Already, the progress is noticeable! Of course, I’d like to lose 5 more by the end of June--just in time for our trip to the Red Sea to visit Max’s family. So far, so good!

Friday - By the time you read these words, Max and I will be on our way to the airport to catch a flight to Prague, Czechoslovakia. Saturday marks our one-year wedding anniversary, and we’re off for a romantic weekend.

Glad to hear all went well on your Adventures in Babysitting!

Happy Anniversary. Have a great trip in Prague - and hope you didn't forget your rubbers!

p.s. I agree... Dora is the best! Though there is something just a little off when Dora speaks in Hebrew... I don't quite work for me.

Prague is beautiful! Have a great time!

Have a wonderful romantic weekend and Happy Anniversary!

Keep babysitting twins - you'll burn through more calories than any diet :)

Happy Anniversary and congrats to five pounds lost (I found them!).

Yes, ketchup. You can also try cheese (but apparently only cheddar). It's the pre-school miracle food.

Have lots of fun in Prague and bring pictures!

Congrats on the diet successes!

The ketchup thing? Works on babies my age, too.

Claire said...

Yay Dora! And well done on the diet, darling girl!

Happy Anniversary! Have a wonderful trip.

Children are master negotiators, manipulators and con artists :) It's their size and cuteness that makes it charming.

Kudos to Max for all the diaper changing.

Go you with the five pounds! I may have gained that after eating lunch today.

Happy Anniversary!

5 lbs? Shut up! I'm hoping someday to lose .5 of a lb. Thinking the strawberry Twizzlers aren't helping.

There is no Czechoslovakia any more and hasn't been for many years. Have fun in Prague, Czech Republic though! Those of us who have Czech heritage feel this is pretty important!

Oops! You're right! See, I'm showing my age!

Ah, my Dad the Czechoslovakian, who still says that is his nationality, says lighten up anonymous.
Happy Anniversary Diana, and have a great time in Prage. I was there last 13 years ago and I bet that it's even prettier now.

Any tips? On the scamming part. I need pointers.

I was very very sad when my two girls outgrew Dora. Yes. Beware. It will happen.
