When Ethan was a baby, I stumbled upon this program on HBO. "Classical Baby"
Ethan and I would watch it whenever it came on, after a little while, we recorded them so we could watch whenever we wanted, which was often. It became a nightly routine to snuggle up with both Callie and Ethan and watch one of these 30min shows before bedtime.
I bought the 3-set series the year we went to Disneyland, we had a DVD player in the van and it would be the best diversion for the kids on the long drive. If you love classical music, and I do, it's brilliant what they've done with the music to the art, there have been four to date, Music, Dance, Art and the last was Poem, which I just ordered online...
The other day Ethan, out of the blue, say's "can we watch Classical Baby" and I said "sure"... we have watched it twice now, and it is such a wonderful thrill each time, the only thing better would be to have all that classical music on a CD, that I could plug in wherever I am, as I would if I could!
If you ever get a chance to see this program, sit down with your children, or by yourself, and be amazed, and calmed; charmed actually!

As I've mentioned before...
I HATE THIS NEW BLOGGER STUFF....
I cannot get it to "align left"...GRRRRR!
Callie has started tennis lessons, and she's got pretty good "natural ablility" you can see it, and her teacher has said it, both lessons! She LOVES it! I can see her going on to the next lesson after this, Ethan wants to do it too now, he's been a terrific little ball picker-uper! Doug practiced awhile with him Monday and he kept saying "I could be the CHAMPION at this"!!
We'll probably sign him up too, he seemed to have the hang of it pretty good!

Irritation #1 is that blogger went to a "new and improved" format...
I THINK IT STINKS.
I can barely figure out how to do the things I've done all along, it's a pain
So, the pictures, which normally I would upload from last to first is NOT how this works, so instead of there being a sequence, there is not, and I cannot fiugre out how to move the picutres around, since the rule that Duchy showed me, doesn't work now either! With that said.....
We decided to put Doug's office downstairs and put the kids in their own rooms now... it was time. So, Ethan went to a Transformer's theme, and Callie went to this pink multi-color pattern that is totally girl, and adorable! Ethan has the "bunk" bed now, and has a little play space of his own now where he used to sleep, Callie has Spencer's old bed, and she LOVES it!, hence the set of rules that if you want to go in her room; BEST KNOCK.. she is 100% serious about that, at least where Ethan is concerned!
