Dear Henry Kissinger: $8/hr. says you’re free to babysit this week

May 15, 2011

The morons and I had a nice, busy morning.  Busy = they needed me constantly.  These things…

  •  Daddy, I need a pony
  • Daddy, take my pony out
  • Can I have my blanket and seahorse and pillow from upstairs?
  • Daddy, I’m poopy
  • Let’s dress up!
  • I want a peanut butter and jelly
  • Daddy, I drank some of your coffee

…took place within a 3 minute span.  After the 72nd minute, I was ready for a break.

“Who wants to watch a bit of tv?  Maybe some cartoons?”

Neither of them reacted in the slightest.  So I put Dinosaur Train on.  Nothing.  They kept on playing and needing me.  After a few minutes, I gave up and turned on Sunday Morning, who was doing an interview with Henry Kissinger.

The girls were hooked, instantly.  They couldn’t take their eyes off the tv.  Maybe it was the grainy almost-color footage from the Tet Offensive that kept them interested.  Whatever the reason…I’ll be showing more Secretaries of State now.

Tantrum dance party happened tonight.  Notable events included us running into Ruben and his family.  It’s always nice to run into another neighbor/blogger/fan of good music. 

Girls, tented.
