Shitting the bed (in NY & elsewhere)

Change is in the air. How do I know?

Two of the last three nap days (not an actual nap, mind you) she has literally shit the bed, obviously in protest of being put in the crib in the first place, all the while tellign us she didn't want to go to bed. The clothes come off first, then the diaper (a pull up these days) followed by a Chuck Berry exhibition (no camera however). Luckily, she is well aware that "poop has germs" so we have been spared all of that horror.

It would seem that nap time might be on the wane.

In an unrelated matter, other places that seem to be in a bed shitting phase are Tallahassee & Miami.

It Never Gets Old. Ever.

Grace was in an especially daddy mode this weekend. Plenty of running up to me and hugging my legs & exclaiming proudly "I yove daddy" (still has trouble with L. And the potty).

There was that time out at the farm store yesterday when she simply refused to listen to reason, but that was quickly forgotten, replaced by knee-high embraces & exclamations of undying devotion to both parents - "How much do you love mummy?" "Big."

The feeling is mutual. Bigger.

Today Dick Cheney blamed Connecticut voters for Iraq mess

You think I am making this up?

"When they (the insurgents) see something happen, such as what happened in Connecticut, when the Democratic Party in effect purged Joe Lieberman, primarily over his support for the President, that says to them that their stategy is working."

That Whole Gay Preacher Thing...

Call me lily livered, but I feel sorry for the guy. He is trying to deny his existence. Say what you want, but in the end, you cannot deny who you are. Ted Haggard is a man struggling with his sexuality. That is something that cannot be simply switched off. He has spent his adult life fighting this. It must me an epic battle of his soul.

Be who you are.
