Seen and not heard…

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

Remember the old saying “children should be seen and not heard?” Well, I personally don’t subscribe to that way of thinking. I love hearing my daughter’s take on her world. I do, however, believe the saying can and should be updated to suit more modern needs.

CHILDREN’S TOYS SHOULD BE SEEN AND NOT HEARD!

All of the commercials for toys this year seem to talk and think for your kids. I, for one, would love for Dora to get a mean case of laryngitis. My 19 month old daughter believes most of her toys are ‘broken’. You know what? It doesn’t bother her one bit to play without her toys buzzing and squawking at her. Makes for a happy mommy too.

Sneakers On My Thighs

The cosmetic industry has given me a great idea.  I’ve noticed in recent advertisements they have started adding the things we should be eating in our diet for healthier skin to our make-up.  Now, instead of eating right to look good, we just have to smear what we need on our face.  I’m sure it really works, too.  Like, totally dude.  How great.  That garbage in – garbage out warning we all heard as children has been nullified.  We can eat whatever we want and still look great.

If skin can look great with some simple topical love the same should be true for other parts of my body.  Don’t you think?  Instead of exercising, I’m going to tie sneakers to my thighs to help melt away my remaining baby weight.  This rocks.  Now I have time to watch some more television and type on my computer.  Mmmmm, me thinks I’ll call for a pizza too.

I Wonder

I wonder if Obama is elected as our next President if Oprah will expect him to stock his eventual Presidential Library with Oprah’s book club choices as a gesture of appreciation.
