28 Dec 06 Thanks for the presents, Santa

Marley in her Christmas PJs Well, it’s three days after Christmas, and we just got around to opening Marley’s last present. Phew! She relished every moment of the extravaganza.Why did it take so long you might ask? She actually didn’t receive that many gifts, but she took time to play with every single one immediately after it was opened. In fact, she even knows some of the books inside and out, and has mastered some of her puzzles. It is fun to see how much she absorbs. Her vocabulary grows daily and she is a pretty good at memorizing things.

So is her Daddy. His worst nightmare came true today. He actually got a Barney song stuck in his head. If you really pester him, he might even admit dancing with Marley to Barney. Talk about a sight to see. He must really love his kids. He just continues to resist their music because he knows it will continue to infiltrate his head. Welcome to parenthood.

Happy holidays!

    No matter how hard we all resist Barney……….he manages to infiltrate!

    Wouldn’t you love to be that woman who invented him? (I bet she is SO sick of him, too. But there would at least be some consolation via the royalties.)

    I think it’s a sign of a good parent to swallow their pride and sing along with Barney and Sharon, Lois and Bram etc. etc.

    Enjoy it while your kid still wants to include you in their music and dancing……..Andree the preteen just thinks we are “so lame” when we try to sing or dance to her favourites (Nelly Furtado, Beyonce, Fergie(licious) etc.)

    You guys are great parents. Nicole and Marley chose very well. Lucky little girls.

    I love you,
