The Happy Quest for Independent Uprightedness

Let’s just go ahead and admit that a good portion of the reason I had kids was for their entertainment value.

I give you Exhibit 276:

Fun–a family tradition. Any significance to the fact that she falls toward the right every time?

I’ve never enjoyed watching a baby fall so much!

P.S. The TV movie of Alice in Wonderland – like, the 2-part series with Carol Channing and Sammy Davis, Jr.?!?! It was the greatest thing of ALL TIME, and I watched it a bajillion times in my youth (except the super-scary Jabberwocky parts). It came out when I was 7 1/2, and Alice was *also* 7 1/2, so clearly, it was meant for me. I’m so glad to know others remember…

Yes – C. Channing, S. Davis Jr, RINGO STARR, Scott Baio, Sherman Helmsley, I am telling you, everyone wanted a piece of that magic! It is seriously, totally, wonderfully abysmal. (Jabberwock also made me pee my pants.)

This is one of the cutest things I have ever seen, IN MY LIFE! I think what makes it so cute is that she is so cheerful and clearly thrilled to be hanging out with Mama and Bro, even if she keeps falling over.

Just wait – your baby will do the same thing!! Really, the falling over on the bed thing is one of my favorite parts of babydom.

Christ, that girl (both kids!) is adorable.

Also, I OWN the Alice in Wonderland DVD. My sister got it for me maybe two or three years ago for my birthday. I LOVED that movie when I was little. Now when I watch it…well, I can barely watch it, it’s so horrible. *sigh*

**Jam tomorrow, jam yesterday. But never, ever jam today!**

You are the best mom EVER. Seriously. This is way cute, and a wonderful thing you are doing for you children.
