talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Where there's Life there's hope

We've been living slightly closer to the belt in some ways, and less cereal choices seems to be one of them. Nora came down the stairs requesting cereal today, and things didn't seem to be going her way.

N: "Life cereal please."
J: "Oh, we ate all of the Life cereal. Let's pick something else to eat today. Maybe Cheerios and bananas?"
N: "I want circles."
J: "You mean Cheerios?"
J: "Ah. Cracklin' Oat Bran? (Nods) Sorry, we don't have Cracklin' Oat Bran."
N: *mournfully* "Why not?"
J: "We ate all of it. We'll need to find something else."
N: *concerned* "Will we ever have it again in our life?"

Today's photo is an opening scene from May 11th-- a day that Nora managed to get up before either of her lay-abed parents, open the pantry, rip open a new box of Pop Tarts (Daddy's special treat), and help herself. It was also the frustrating day she realized that she's been cheated out of the twin packaged Pop Tart for all this time. Hmmm, parents really need to wake up early if they want to maintain their magic tricks, huh?

I know exactly what she means. I feel the same way when I look at the lonely All-Bran in the cupboard.
