Kate's Spokesbaby Career Takes Off

Kate recently recorded a foreign-language TV commercial for her favorite snack treats, Baby Mum Mums. Huge profits are expected to start rolling in any second. Here's the clip (sorry we couldn't add subtitles; that would've made it perfect!):

As for what's been going on with us the last almost a month since my previous post... insanity. In the interest of saving space and not lighting my keyboard on fire, here's the quickie version:

Connecting flights, lots of crying, car seat snafu, Alex's wedding, cute flower girl, lots of crying, missed reception, up all night, lots of crying, fun at Nana's & Papa's, learning to crawl, babbling constantly, sleeping poorly, lots of crying, missed the zoo, Eric's wedding, catching up with old friends, sangria swirls and cheese fries at the Mont, rush to airport, stupid car seats, connecting flights, no stupid frickety fracking changing table, LOTS of crying, 10 days worth of cat barf, why does our house still smell like an old lady?, potty training, poop on the floor, big girl panties, attempted stair climbing and couch standing, falling, lots of crying, teething?, frozen peas, lots of crying, sleepless nights, laundry, laundry, laundry, potty success & "chocolate treats," hissy fits, lots of crying. Whew!

Daddy Gets Time Out

Tonight after dinner, we were hanging out with the kiddos and Mike stepped on Maggie's foot and she accidentally fell down. He immediately apologized and helped her up, but she ordered him to go sit on the Naughty Step!! I joked that he now had to sit there for the next 32 minutes and prompted Maggie to tell him, "Daddy, the reason I am putting you on the Naughty Step is..." (that's the routine endorsed by Supernanny so of course we do whatever she says). We were rolling. But then, in the most serious voice, the most dead on impression of yours truly, she told him as he sat there on the stairs, "I'll be right here in kitchen doing some dishes, but I'll be back in a minute."
