E Rocks Out

E knows this Free Design song, “I Found Love,” from the tv show Yo Gabba Gabba. We have the original song on CD and the other day when it came on it the car as we were pulling into our driveway E started rocking out.

(I neglected to turn my phone sideways to film it so unfortunately the video is long and skinny instead of wide.)

Here’s the segment from Yo Gabba Gabba that E learned the song from. The animation is really cute and goes well with the music.

Teaching fiscal responsibility to the young

Here at Casa de Nearest Future the paperwork and mail really tend to pile up. I’m horrible at keeping things organized and tend to just stack papers and shuffle them around the house.

But yesterday I attacked the piles and started filing things away and shredding those I didn’t need.

E was thoroughly enchanted by the shredder. So enchanted, in fact, that when I turned my back for two seconds this happened:

At least it was only a one.

Thank you, Wonder Pets

We have a low ledge along a wall behind one of our couches. E loves to climb over the couch and inch his way along the ledge and climb all over the couch in general. I’m pretty low key and don’t care about it since our couches aren’t anything special and he isn’t likely to hurt himself.

But sometimes he does gets stuck.

This morning E was attempting to slide off the couch and under a table we have next to it (which he knows is NOT allowed) and he got stuck. He looks over at me and says, “I’ll help you, Mom!”

I ask him if he meant to say, “Help me, please” and he agrees and says it with a smile.

I pull him out and plop him on the couch and then he says, “Thanks, Ma! Good teamwork!”

It cracked me up and almost made up for the hours of my life I’ve spent listening to Linnie, Tuck, and Ming Ming too–almost.
