Just Two Things

1) My female counterpart recently bought a book called "The Happiest Toddler On The Block". I only caught the title at a glance and I thought she was reading "The Stupidest Toddler In The World". I really, really want to write that book.

2) I've had a post title in my head for weeks now but I'll never really get a chance to use it: "Soylent All These Years". God, I pray Tori Amos eats a corpse.

I Don't Do Banal

Poor Sara.

Ben's blog was lots more fun and had better entries at this stage. I'd love to be able to write more text entries but it's always easier to just grab one of our many pics, clean and crop it and slap it in the blog. My energy levels just aren't what they used to be. My level of awe is diminished this second time 'round. My excitement and my ability to communicate the excitement I do get are muted. I refuse to post any old picture and I won't write any old thing in their blog. I'd rather leave it blank than fill it with filler. Obviously some posts are stronger than others but I try to keep it at a certain level of quality.

I have a few ideas that I'd like to do but there never seems to be enough time. I'd like to leave them the blogs as a kind of 21st century baby book. I find it likely, however, that they will abandon it, force me to abandon it or maybe even delete it out of embarrassment at some point.

In any case, I have enjoyed it to this point and would like to enjoy it more but I guess I'm better off spending my efforts raising my kids instead of documenting them.
