A birthday message for my BFF, Molly.

FYI: We did this with no rehearsal and in one take. I KNOW. That’s going to be a tough one to swallow.

    I’m always torn between wanting to be your kid and wanting to be you as a mom! If only I can have this much fun with my monkeys when they’re older! Thanks for sharing again!!

    you’re awesome! It takes a fabulous confident woman to be able to post such a video. You are my hero and hope one day I can post a video like that on my blog…because yes, I do stuff like this with my dd on a regular basis.

    PS I made your chililicous recipe last night for my family and it was a success. My husband said he would be happy eating it once a week. Looks like we have a new favorite. Thanks.

    You always have a way of lifitng my spirits. If they happen to need lifting, that is. Which they do right now. Hey, do you think I can make videos like that with one of them there Flip video cams? I looked at one the other day and they are tiny!

    You are awesome!! As a side note: I live in West Puget Sound and my husband has the opportunity to work in the great city of Cathy! Opps, I mean Everett! My two preschool kiddos and I will be heading up there quite a bit to visit. Is there anything great that I should know about up there? A great place to eat, see, shop? Thanks!

    Too funny…why is it that the beat comes naturally to kids and we look like dorks? Has the tempo changed that much over the years? Sorry but your daughter really has a great rhythm going there.

    You did THAT for your BFF? No! She must be special. Ha. Love the open bathroom door with the toilet shot. I love how REAL you are–now I must go shut all my bathroom doors.

    WOW that’s reason number 100 I should never be allowed to get a Flip video camera because you tube would be over run with videos like this of me πŸ˜€

    Sooo cute to see both of you!
    What I loved about it is that I could totally see what a wonderful relationship you have with your daughter. I can only hope I’ll have a good relationship with my son when he’s Aidan’s age! Thanks for the heart warming clip!

    …but I will show her in the morning and we WILL make one together too!!
    very cool!

    Of all the things that make me like you (and there are many) my fave to date has got to be that you have no problem posting video that shows your toilet in the background.

    As a fellow old-house resident who has taken more fantastic snapshots that feature our downstairs bathroom toilet (conveniently located right off the dining room and visible from nearly EVERY point on the entire first floor) than you can really even imagine – I salute you.

    I think it is an underappreciated art!

    My children will never want for warm memories of their downstairs commode …
