November 2007


My little sister Story really had a rough time during her first few weeks here in the Straw household. The poor thing had her schedule all messed up. She didn’t know when to eat, when to sleep or even when to poop. Sometimes she did all three at the same time!

So a couple weeks ago I decided to take Story under my wing. I put Story in Tess Boot Camp for Aspiring Toddlers. So far, we’ve covered Naps, Bottles, and Reading.

I have to say, Story is turning into quite the star pupil.

She’s got the naps down – today she took three solid ones!!! Bottles, no problem!! She’s taking bottles from Dad, Amanda AND MOM. Even I didn’t take bottles from Mom!

But reading… I don’t know if she “gets” it. See for yourself:

Well, I guess you have to give her props on her Bumbo work.

Ok, gotta run. I have to go monitor Story’s tummy-time.

I don’t know if my regular readers are aware of this, but I’ve been getting some pretty crazy comment action these days. I mean seriously people, I’m a toddler, watch your language!!!!!

So I just want to make a couple things clear to my new readers (I’m sure all my regulars understand the essense of the blog of Tess, so you guys can just skip ahead…) But for all you newbies… listen up! I need to make a few things very clear. I’ll put it in numerical list format for easier comprehension, I know how you newbies like to skim:

1) I loved the Bumbo;

2) I never really intended to file suit against the makers of Bumbo (please people, are any of you crazy noters actually READING my blog??? see www.m-w.com for some help on this one!);

3) I STILL love the BUMBO!!!!! Check it out:

So with that, I would like to close the chapter on the Bumbo controversy. That’s it, case closed!

In other news, last weekend we went to the spectacular Mom to Mom Halloween party. Can you guess what we are?:



It helps if you can see a closeup of Story:

Any guesses?
