To really appreciate the following conversation, you must understand that it took place while I was cooking dinner. The Jellyman had just finished a bunch of yard work, and was in the bathroom trying to get cleaned up. Apple and Orange were both screeching in their high chairs, which was actually an improvement, since their previous activity had been screeching and holding on to my legs. Ok, carry on:

Raisin: Mommy, what does blanyet mean?

Me: "Blanyet?" I'm sorry, honey, I don't understand what you're saying.

Raisin: Blanyet, Mommy, blanyet. What does it mean?!

Me: Are you saying "blanyet?" Because I have no idea what that means.

Raisin: Yes! Blanyet! Blanyet!

Me: Maybe it would help if you told me where you learned this word. Then maybe I would be able to figure it out.

Raisin: I just made it up.

And that is how my day went. The end.

Okay, so I am a dork!!! It's official. I've been checking the OLD blog looking for updates. I clicked on the link earlier for this blog, but didn't see anything new. So, here I am at 9:10 am on a Saturday morning reading all about the last couple of weeks. I'm exhausted!! :) You've been a busy girl!! How goes it?

Donna -- it goes. I'm exhausted, too. And, just when you've come to visit me here, considering a move back to WordPress.

But that's pending a time when I am not too tired to totally eff that up -- so it could be months before that happens. :)

OMG, that's funny. Sounds like my house. The Bear is trying to use "sign language," which means that she's pointing at stuff and wiggling her fingers and expecting me to know what it means. Sweet.
