It's a good thing babies are usually cuter than plants

...or else I don't think ours would live very long. Yesterday when I was cleaning I found two very neglected plants sitting in shadowy darkness, looking very pale and sickly. I rushed them into the kitchen for some emergency water and sunlight and they now have "a little color" as they say in that wonderful movie where Sandra Bullock dips her Oreos in the milk in her cat's food dish. (Five points to those who can name the title of that movie.) Anyway, but as I was sitting here looking at blogs and checking e-mail and pretending like I never get on Facebook I was thinking about that- that babies get more attention than plants, that is.

WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING!! Ha! Five points to me. yessssssss. (Imagine me doing one of those elbow-tucking movements used to express success.)

It's from While you were sleeping. I get 5 points too please. Thanks. and I knew it without even reading Bryan's comment. Now, what is she wearing during that scene?

HEY! I also knew it was While You Were Sleeping. I think she was wearing a big sweatshirt?

Hey- I knew it was While You Were Sleeping too!

Some of my other favorites are "I love black underwears", "You fell in love with me?", and of course "These mashed potatoes are so creamy!"

And can we watch it together sometime please? :) and also the word I have to spell to leave this comment is shmarakh. wow.

Yes, you had better take better care of your baby than that. :)

(My posting word is "credle" - almost "cradle" - which means yes, you WILL take good care of that darling baby.)
