Well, while I am up waiting to see if Nadav will fall asleep or, in fact, will continue to cry until the morning hours (Pick him up! Cry it out! Dance a jig!), I will update you on the latest ramblings.
1. [Though perhaps this should be numbered "0," as you will see...]
Yaakov firmly believes that the original Toy Story movie is called "Toy Story Zero." It does not have a number attached to it; ergo, it is number zero. He follows this thought to its logical conclusion: We own Toy Story Zero, Toy Story Two, and Toy Story Three. For some reason, we don't have Toy Story One. But it's out there. Oh yes, it is out there.
2. Last week, I bragged publicly on Facebook that for once, the stars aligned and the birthday party (for Yaakov) was on the same night as the chug (for Ariella). Which meant only ONE night of shlepping small children to and fro.
Well, for those who like to see the bad guy (me, in thise case) get their comeuppance, I am comeupped big time this week.
Sunday night, Ariella was invited to a pajama party (5:00 - 7:00)
Tuesday night, Ariella has chug and Yaakov has a birthday party (4:15 - 6:25/5:00 - 7:00)
Thursday night, Yaakov has a birthday party HERE and Ariella has a birthday party alllllll the way over THERE (5:00 - 7:00 / 5:00 - 7:00. It is going to be the Amazing Race, Modiin-style, starring me and my intrepid partner, Nadav "Party All Night Long" Rose. I hope we win.)
3. I would like to point out 2 new blogs on the blogroll - Cooking Manager and Healthy Morsel. These are written by experienced bloggers Hannah, of A Mother in Israel Fame and Arica "Factor" Saltzman, of Our Life, respectively. (I have always wanted to use "respectively." Check that off the list.) Both blogs have tips for healthy eating, complete with recipes. And of course are completely endorsed by aliyahbyaccident.
I, too, shall be jumping on the food blog bandwagon. My new blog will be entitled CocoaKrispiesforDinner. Stay tuned.
