What Does Elmo Have That I Don't

Besides red fur and an annoying habit of speaking of himself in the first person? I'll tell you - the total and utter devotion of my little one.

I try to get my son to finish his breakfast by saying, "show mom what a good eater you are." No way mom, I'm not falling for that old, not to mention, lame line. I try again with, "show Elmo what a good eater you are." Sure enough his mouth opens and he gladly eats whatever I put in.

This past December I told him over, and over, and over "Santa is nice, Santa will bring you presents, blah, blah, blah, blah." We meet Santa, he cries. Take two. I tell him Santa and Elmo are friends. We see Santa again and he all too gladly sits on his lap with a big smile on his face because Santa is, after all, Elmo's friend.

I don't get it. I personally trust my own mother more than a small red Muppet, but that's just me. As perplexing as this infatuation is, I don't know where I would be without it. Oh, yes I do, I would be the mother of a boy who doesn't go to sleep, doesn't go to nursery, doesn't clean up his toys...

I'm Willing To Bet...

That the name Jimmer appears on the top ten list for baby boy names (in Utah County) this year. (Possible spellings: Gymmer, Jimr, Gimmer, Gymr, Jim-R; don’t be scared...get creative!)

Not that I think we should bet. Nor would I ever.

The Beginning

Well friends, you’ve probably noticed that we’ve started a blog.

Why are we doing this?
Have you ever wanted to do something other than laundry? Brush off those dusty writing skills? Us too.

Other than that, right now we’re not really sure of the “why.” (Some of us are hoping we make a ton of money. It’s gonnna be big folks).

What can you expect?
Daily postings (minus Sunday–we will be resting) about nothing and everything all in one. The Seinfeld of LDS women blogs.

We hope you enjoy this as much as we enjoy avoiding laundry.
