Um, Chris? If you speak nicely to the car the repair bill is lower! (you know, flies/honey vs. flies/vinegar) I am so glad you didn't have to play Princess. I've recently started babysitting 4 year old twins that are girls. If you read my blog, you know about the testosterone level in my house. I now have pink booster seats in my car. What is the world coming to? Good luck with your busy week.

That is very funny about your daughter mentioning Obama. Our 3 year old is obsessed and talks about him daily. My parents moved to DC in January for my father to fulfill a 4 year appt. and ever since my daughter is obsessed with going to the White House to see "Baback O'Mama" as she calls him. She insists my father let her spend Christmas with the Obama's.

I hope you were the narrator guy in the wheelchair and not the bald dude with the little beanie cap. He's got issues.

The weekend is a little blurry. I do, however, recall that I attempted in doing as little as possible. With success.
