If There’s a Fire, We’re Doomed

But at least the micro dude won’t fall down the stairs. We really need these now that he’s gotten so mobile, but it’s going to take some getting used to the gates. I keep reminding myself that it’s just two years. Just two years and he should be steady and responsible enough to not pitch over and tumble down.

Thank you for your excellent advice on goody bags. Q-ster reported he had a good time at Princess A’s birthday party yesterday, where he wore his Jedi robe, which seems to be a reasonable fit into the princess world. I think I see a Jedi/Princess party in our future.

I had forgotten that being the youngest in the playgroup, Q-ster is at the end of the train of birthday parties, and I can learn from all the other smart moms. Princess A’s mom included this cup filled with treats, among other things, and how can one go wrong with cute sealife?!

I’ve seen on a couple of sites that this is Delurking Week – “lurkers” are those who read but don’t usually comment. I’d love to know if you’re out there reading, so please to say hello! If you don’t want to write your name, you can choose the “anonymous” setting and leave a hint so I know who you are. Of course, if I hear from you regularly, I’m just as thrilled to have you say hi too.

I’ve been meaning to do a contest for months now, so now’s as good a time as any. I’ll send a card good for 50 free photo prints at Snapfish to a randomly selected commenter if he or she would like it. Have a good week!

Hello! I still read regularly, though I mostly lurk =) I've been enjoying watching Q's transformation into full Jedi!

I'm here, even though I don't comment all the time. :)

Ah, baby gates. We need to put ours up again soon. Necessary, but a total pain in the posterior! Or am I the only one who trips over them?

Just found your blog a few weeks ago. Love the jedi obsession! I showed my husband the post on seeing a jedi robe in the piano cover...he thought it was awesome.

I've commented before, and still read all the time. /delurk

Hi
I have been reading you for the last nine months or so pretty often. I'm from Gallup New Mexico.

I am the obsessive Queen of Gates since my mom let Pumpkinpie crawl down the hallway away from her and she fell down a full flight of hardwood stairs. We just get wooden ones that screw right into the wall.

Hi! :-)

We have a ranch house so we never needed baby gates. Of course, there is an endless list of things about a ranch house that are infinitely more annoying to me.

hi, I'm cousins of Tom/Crystal Y-F and I've lurked on your blog for some time. Qster's Star Wars obsession is fun, my husband likes to read those, too wishing our 3yr old son would be into it soon. Happy new year and thanks for the great blogging/entertainment!
