That’s sort of a cliché about parents. We all believe that our children are the most beautiful children in the world. But the thing is, what no one really talks about is the fact that we all really believe it.” – Heather Armstrong (Dooce)

Periscope up?

Yeah, I know I’ve been a little “periscope down” for the last couple weeks, but I’m in a bit of a bind — I’ve got two things I really really want to talk about, and I really can’t discuss either of them out here on the big bad internets.

So, instead… how about a video of my daughter winding herself up (literally) for dance class? Spinning Spinning Spinning. (open with quicktime)

Yes, that’s pretty much what she’s like all the time.

More later, once I feel like I can talk about it. Until then, I’ll take suggestions on somewhat safer unsafe topics to discuss; let’s hear it.

Two-weapon Specialization

On the one hand, this is just a test of the ability of Flickr to (finally!) post images to my blog after lo these many years.

On the other, it’s a funny picture. There’s a whole series of these, involving Kaylee beating several people into submission during our February birthday bash.

I showed my family the “oh no my arms!!” video and they all thought it was some new internet sensation.
I told them I was going to meet the “my arms girl” and they were like “No way!! how?!” She could be a youtube star!

Indeed she could. Indeed, she could.
