Looking at my future

Yes, yes, been gone a week and must blog about my adventures. But also, been gone a week and must actually do some work... So no major stories today and just this thought:

Yesterday, my 17 month old (how did she get so big? Pause for a moment while all my reproductive organs weep...) grabbed my blackberry as a favorite toy of the day. She lay down on the couch in our family room with her legs bent and feet on the couch (but NOT standing! So I think I've won that battle) holding the phone up against her legs and pressing the buttons to watch the colors change, etc.

And I looked at her and thought - I will see this exact picture again in 12 or 15 years. My (not so little) monkey laying on that couch (or, I HOPE, its future descendents) texting or on the phone or whatever new fangled things those kids have come up with then...

Later I wrestled the phone from her admist much screaming and thought - yeah, this is probably a premonition too. Particularly as I put the phone on the counter while I fed her in her high chair and the very second I let her down, she walked over to the counter and swiped it off again in passing!

  1. The Cute knows how to unlock my iPhone and turn the iPod on. Ain't right.

    I DO eat the Yoplait Thick & Creamy yogurts. Only the vanilla, though. I haven't tried the Key Lime but I will now.

    I like to get the Thomas's 100 calorie mini bagels and top them with a wedge of Laughing Cow light french onion cheese. 135 calories and sooo good. I make myself iced coffees with vanilla extract, light 1/2 and 1/2 and Splenda. Even though Splenda is like rat poison, so I've heard. And I love Skinny Cow ice creams. And 100 calorie packs of anything since I have little self control.

    FEED ME.


I love comments! Come leave me some blog love!
