She's not asleep. She's transfixed. She didn't move a muscle for a full fifteen minutes. Unprecedented.

Did you know that Ann Taylor LOFT has a maternity line?? I didn't! Luckily, Design Mom knew. (And over at sk*rt you can even win a gift certificate (among other goodies)!) The choices for all the preggers ladies just keep getting better.
EDIT: I should have realized the speculation this post could cause. For the record, no I'm not pregnant. But I do hope/plan to be at some point in the future, so I love to find totally hip maternity clothes.

Yeah, I filmed it sideways. I did not consider the inability to rotate it the right way later on. So, anyway...
The Wax Museum was last week for Emma. This was quite the project for a 2nd grader. She had to do a little research on her assigned historical figure, Eleanor Roosevelt, and write a short speech. Then she and her classmates stood like wax figures in the gym and waited for parents and other classes to come and push the "on" button on the floor. She would recite her little speech over and over for an hour as the crowd moved through. She took her role very seriously and did not break character (that of being made of wax) when we told her "good job" and "show Dad how loose your tooth is".
Hanging out with her pal, Harriet Tubman...and the whole class.

So, last month was Ben's 100th day of Kindergarten. At our school they make a big, day-long party out of the event. The now-seasoned students make and eat a 100 foot long banana split, see how far they go in 100 steps, count things up to 100 like crazy, and other assorted centi-festivities. Including making a necklace out of 100 pieces of wagon wheel pasta dyed different colors. Hmmm, where would they get all that pasta? Why, helpful mother volunteers of course. When Emma was in kindergarten I was in charge of green and our kitchen table still bears a few stains from that day. With this bit of hard won experience, I was much more prepared to take on red and blue for Ben.
