Ten things I learned from my kids...

1. Take a picture; it lasts longer.
2. You don't need music to dance.
3. Getting the mail is very exciting!
4. It's okay to take two baths a day. Even if you don't need either of them.
5. Sometimes throwing a fit does work.
6. I'm not the perfect parent I thought I would be (see number six).
7. Why my mom drank the milk that I accidentally poured into a glass of ice when I was eight and grossed the rest of us out.
8. That Sesame Street is funny on a whole different level.
9. I spend too much time on the computer.
10. The meaning of life.

  3. Anon, I thought it was 42. Oh, no...that was the answer to the Ultimate Question. Carry on.

  4. Oh, and Bananas...thanks! I literally spit out the first ten things that came to my head (see number six)(and replace 'blogger' for 'parent').

  5. My favorite: You don't need music to dance. So true. My son is always asking me to dance in the living room with or without music. :)

    I also wanted to say that it was so great to meet you at BlogHerCon this year. San Francisco was so much fun. Can't wait for next year's conference, and I hope we can meet again in the future!

  15. Myself. I'm still working on the answer to #10. I completely agree with you on #2 - my daughters (twins) are now ten as well and I can so clearly recall dancing with both of them, one in each hand, usually to some really cool funky music but other times to a nice slow waltz. It was as good for them as it was for me, that's for sure.
