Why the Long Face?

I'm noticing that before I became a mother, I used to write more funny things.  Right now, I'm so busy laughing at the things that my son says (i.e. "My kidneys are not at home." or "That man have stinky legs.") that it takes work to actually think up humorous turns of phrases.  My life does indeed have a lot of laughter, but not much of it has been reflected here.  Apologies for the stoic postings lately.

 I have picked up my knitting needles once again.  My current project is a pair of baby footed pants.  My next projects will be Christmas/winter pajamas for Million and the baby in this pattern.  I haven't yet found a yarn that I want to use for Million's, and I need to wait until next Friday to find out what gender the baby is before I can decide a yarn for him/her.

I don't know if I've typed about this yet, but our family is so very much enjoying listening to Swiss Family Robinson on free MP3 recordings from  Million is learning new vocabulary, and Michael and I are enjoying a communally experienced literary language.  We'll likely finish it this next weekend.
Do you have a favorite audio-recorded book?

  1. I love the way Madeleine L'Engle reads her "Wrinkle in Time" series. Her voice is gravelly and old-sounding, but for some reason it's just perfect.
