that is SO funny! do you all have a "baby book" for her? that kind of stuff should go in it. forget first words and baptism nonsense. perhaps you should start a new folder on your laptop: HD>Documents>Family>Children>Psychological profiles>documentation

Perhaps all of you parents should do that. Do you realize how popular memoirs are today? Think "Running With Scissors" and "A Million Little Pieces." Forget sending your kids to tennis camp to strike it rich, you should cultivate them as future memoir writers. (sure, sure, the aforementioned books' writers had DISASTROUS lives, but only for a while, and you can work out the details later. and don't forget, the better documented a childhood is, the easier it is for a therapist in the future!) Also consider the recent film "Tarnation," which depended on meticulous documentation of the director's young self.

In the meantime, stay away from precarious snow accumulations.

BABY book?!

We had/have one for Ariel that was kept pretty regularly for the first year to year-and-a-half. But it has ENORMOUS lacuna of missed events in it.

Don't even ASK me about Ruth's book. Yes, we have one, and no, it is shockingly empty.

But, we got a (much better) digital camera when Ruth was born and have many short digital camera videos of her playing with Ariel.

And besides, this blog is now serving as a much better record of their early years than anything else I might have attempted.

(Now I just have to print out each entry and put them in a museum-quality/acid-proof box . . .)

What a coincidence, this very morning my granola told me that property is theft, then I ate some more and it told me to smash the state.
