When Indecisive One-Year Olds Pick Out Their Own Clothes

Pajamas? A Dora shirt with pants? Shorts and a tank top? All of the above? I'm so glad Daddy lent an assist when Alexis couldn't make up her mind.

First, Last, and Dora

My Fantasy Football draft has ended and I'm feeling all sorts of dirty. I had the "lucky" draw of first pick. So, Yay! in the first round. But wow does that suck when you get to the second round. With fourteen teams, that meant I got to pick Ladianian Tomlinson in the first round like anyone with a brain would, but I didn't get to pick again until 28. There weren't any good running backs or quarterbacks left at that point. Boo. Eventually I was left with players that I can't stand as my best bet. Enter Plaxico Burress and Eli Manning (my backup QB). I really hope I can sucker somebody into a trade a few weeks in for no other reason than so I can feel a little better about myself at the end of the day. No Catchico. Blarg.

While I was participating in the draft activities, Grandma made it to our house and the spoiling immediately kicked into high gear. I don't really know why Alexis thought she needed a Dora suitcase, a Dora outfit, and two pairs of Dora pajamas, but I'm pretty sure Grandma's were invented specifically to purchase unneeded items for little ones. I mean, what exactly does a one-year old need a suitcase for? So that we can ship her to Grandma's house for a week? Hmm . . . that's an idea.

What Happens When I Can't Think of a Title

This is going to be nice and short because Grandma is coming and I really need to hurry-up and make it look like we know how to clean and pick-up after ourselves. But I can only do that after I have figured out a plan for my fantasy football draft tomorrow. I refuse to lose to a bunch of boys. There will be no sleeping for a while as my priorities are clearly straight. #1--Fantasy football. #2--Clean. #3--Sleep. Actually, Daddy is off tomorrow. He may need to take over on #2.

Updates on randomness:

1. I took my lashes with a wet noodle like a grown-up. BUT, I have not yet completely lost the war. The sky is right where it belongs, so it's just down to a tiny bit more work. It will happen soon, I swear.

2. Alexis is a tattle-tale. She was yelling "Jasmine, no!" earlier when the hairy one was up to no good.

3. I can't give an update on the over-priced aquarium because I refuse to jinx us.

4. Daddy has been living in a box for the past few months and just now heard this for the first time. Now he won't stop freaking singing it. Somebody needs to put me out of my misery now.

5. This is from the Pittsburgh Children's Museum. It's a see-saw that makes air bubbles in a water wall when you go up and down. This would be the one and only time that I've been OK with Alexis' really fabulous ability to make gas travel through water.
