1. He blew on her rice
Even though it wasn't hot.
"Just to be sure."
3. Still warm from the dryer,
I pulled her sheets tight
around the crib mattress.
4. Hal ordered three ice-creams.
"But what about Fable?...
...Here," Archer said. "Share mine."
5. It was the first night that
both children went to sleep
in their own room.*
(They're still sleeping.)
*after a very long weekend the bedrooms are almost completely finished. There will indeed be an after soon! Hooray!
** I forgot to link this post about Fable's most amazing kick-ass nanny who we have dubbed in our household, Senorita Dudafuego because she IS the same exact person as Mrs. Doubtfire, except she's actually a woman and not Robin Williams in drag.
***For those of you trying to access Straight From the Bottle from Australia you *can* but only through your google reader. Thanks to Little Miss Moi for the heads-up!
**** I also want to thank you so MUCH for all your help re: Archer and music lessons. So many amazing readers commented and emailed me contacts so we can find a kick-ass Suzuki teacher for Archer. (Archer's most interested in playing violin so we'll start with violin and see how it goes.) You're AMAZING. So many resources I'm so grateful. Love to all of you for being so generous with your information and advice! Also looking into Colburn school for singing classes.
