Hello, world. I’m sure WordPress meant to have a comma there. Because we all know that in nouns of direct address, there is a comma after “hello.” This is my first blog on WordPress.com and I’m writing it while Baby V is watching Baby Einstein (Baby Bach, specifically). She is sitting in her chair without being strapped in and she actually asked to sit in it! Hurray! I finally programmed my kid to sit still and watch t.v.! Success! I’ve been waiting for this day for 13 months and it’s finally here!
I don’t know what it is about these Baby Einstein DVDs, but V is mesmerized by them. I guess they are kind of mind-numbingly hypnotic.
Recently, during a quiet romantic moment between Odie and me, he murmured, “I love you, Julie Aigner-Clark.” I froze for a moment, thinking, “WHOM?” (because even my silent indignant exclamations are grammatically correct), and then I realized he was praising the creator of the DVD that our baby was obediently watching in the other room while we, er, congressed. Indeed. Her creation is a blessing.
