I Need A Dristan Drip…And A Cribbie

January 8th, 2009

So I learned how to post videos to Vimeo. You fortunate people. So now you get to hear Toots read a bedtime story! May its soft melodious nonsense soothe you to a sweet slumber.


Also, be ye warned: I sound mannish, and say chaste things like “Speak slower so God can hear you.” Because sometimes he turns off his omniscience. I guess.


You should also know that this video snippet represents my sixth attempt of the night to get the kids to bed, so I’m really trying to hustle them along while they ignore me in spite of my many false and empty threats and gentle, but bordering on hysterical prodding. It was even harder to insist they go to sleep when I knew I’d miss the rest of Toots’ story. I was right at the part where everything gets disastery.


Finally, I guess you should know that I’m posting this because I’ve got blogging block. Maybe I should have Toots write my next post. Hope you like blood and maniacal lions!

I would love to hear Toots blog – maybe you could her some juicy subjects to comment on, like God or Healthy Diets or “boys and bikes”

I’m so glad you told me we can’t use potty words while praying! I did. not. know. that! I think that may be why God hasn’t heard me lately!

And could they be any cuter! Nope. They are adorable. I love how the little one was so still and attentive while her big sister told stories. Priceless!

This made my night brighter!
