So, why do my children like to to bite mommy? Julian doesn't have any teeth yet. He's 3 months old. And he has already created a terrible wound that has to have a couple days of no nursing to heal properly. I think he just sucks really hard or something, but I have 2 cuts, on the top and bottom!! I assume you all remember the Lara bite incident, but she was 7 months old already...
I started doing Pilates yesterday (we'll see how long this lasts) because I need to do something, and I can do this while Lara is awake because she does it with me. Man is it funny. We lie on our backs in front of the TV and follow Ellen (Lara knows her name) as she stretches and works us, and Lara attempts it all with me. If I can ever get the video camera CD installed on this computer, I'll tape it for you and post it somewhere. It'd be a good watch. :)
I bought a bag of gutted, scaled, but otherwise whole tilapia at Sam's and pulled three of them out to thaw this morning. I put them in a bin in the sink with warm water and showed Lara. Her first reaction was, "mommy, the fish are tired." Then she said, "mommy, those fish are sad." I thought honesty was the best policy, so I risked it all and said, "no, sweetie, those fish are dead and we are going to eat them for dinner." Her response: "Yeah! We're gonna eat them!" I would have thought that all her viewings of Finding Nemo and The Little Mermaid would have sensitized her to the plight of the fish... evidently not.
Incidentally, she found them quite tasty.
