    Do they still make Taggies blankets? We thought about getting one for DS when he was a baby, but never actually did. It was a blanket with silky tags sewn all around the edges.

    They do! We had a cloth Taggies book for DS, but he shunned everything inanimate in favour of me...hair and milk. I, however, adored the book. wink

    DS23mo is getting quite punny. Today, while watching an episode of "Dinosaur Train" about troodons (pronounced TRO-oh-dons) who lived in a snowy arctic climate, he said, "snow troodons...they're snow-o-dons!"

    I was amused! smile

    I have never heard of Taggies. I will have to look that up for curiosity.

    On a good note, we were at my nephews wedding today and even though it was noisy and somewhat chaotic at the reception, my daughter did SOOOO well. The music wasn't too loud but I think it helped her tune into it rather than the multiple conversations around her. Although the Shrug to her dress had a seam that was bugging and scratching her. Strange little quirks like that are what worries me when we have to go buy clothes. Every time we try on things my first question has to be "does it bug you anywhere?" That's usually a deciding factor.

    Same here! Sometimes Aquinas, I think we are raising the same child.

    There is a large variety of Taggies available... Books, balls, blankets, etc. I went to get one for a baby shower and was surprised.

    My DD is constructing an essay for her German exam...

    she's supposed to talk about likes and dislikes.


    She pointed out that she does NOT like German (long story-- involving a teacher that has specifically instructed her to contact the teacher pretty much ONLY as a last resort, and feels that 15 minutes a week and no textbook is completely fine as "instruction" in a second year language course...)

    and then added, after a sentence about playing the piano:

    Ich mag das Thema aus Rocky, aber ich spiele Mozart mehr.


    This is VERY funny if you're familiar with the song "I Speak Six Languages" from Spelling Bee.

    grin

    DS-almost-2 was sweeping with his little broom and then dropped this bomb:

    "I need you to move my little table. I want to sweep under my little table. I don't want to live in a dirty house."

    Apparently he's starting to notice my slack housekeeping and doesn't approve. To my credit, I had cleaned the condo 3 days earlier, so things were in fairly good order.
