Hiya, Handsome

Marc installed the Facebook for iPhone application to his phone. 6:58pm

Just testing how Facebook IM works from my iPhone to Mr. O's iPhone.

His response?

"What the...?"



LOVE when I catch him off guard.

From the mouths of MY babes

I stayed home with the kids on Tuesday morning so we could watch our 44th President take the oath of office together, in real time.

At ages 6 and almost-3, I wondered what they would get out of it. Mostly, I just wanted them to see it.

MiniMe and I were sitting on the sofa. Barack Obama and Chief Justice Roberts approached each other to prepare for the oath. The announcer asked everyone to please rise.

MiniMe stood up from the sofa.

She looked over at me purposefully and said “Mom. The man said everyone please rise.”

I stood up and put my arm around my amazing daughter as we watched the oath together.

Yesterday, two of Muggsy’s teachers were discussing the inauguration, not as a classroom lesson but as a personal conversation. The kids were nearby, but engaged in other activity.

Muggsy heard them, and shouted out “Barack Obama!”

They asked him if he knows who Barack Obama is.

Muggsy stood up straight and said “Our new President.”

My pride overfloweth.

This is not good. Not good AT ALL.

I've skillfully avoided it for the past 5 months. I politely sit at lunch, listening to the tales of Facebook hilarity among my beloved co-workers. I raise my eyebrows in authentic amazement as someone celebrates their 500th friend.

But now I'm there. I HAVE to be there. For work, for oxytocin, for my need to connect.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
