Baby Einstein and Over Priced Jeans

I am never going to pretend I am one of those very self disciplined parents who never puts their kid in front of the TV…because that would be a lie.  Cora watches her share of Baby Einstein.  Baby Einstein is my means of cooking dinner.  Baby Einstein is like organic food…who knows if it’s really all it’s cracked up to be but it makes me feel better as a mother.  I convince myself the classical music cancels out the fact that she is zoned out in front of the TV.  Maybe she is going to be a musical prodigy hearing so much Mozart or possibly she’ll be able to say mama/dada in 4 different languages…maybe, but probably not.

Now that she is always on the go she has lost most of her interest in Baby Einstein unless she can watch it like this:

Oh, and did you know that toes and fingers could be so fat? (In case you were worried, my child does not have hairy limbs…that would be daddy’s arm)

Too bad she’s slimming down with all her movement.

Another random tidbit.  I went thrift store shopping with my sister yesterday.  I found these Pottery Barn plates for Cora.  They were $1.90.  I also bought myself a brand new pair of jeans for $5.  When I looked them up online I found discover they retail for $260.00.

I have taken my expensive jeans snobbery to a whole new level.

    I like everything about this post: the wittiness of it, the plates (TOO CUTE), the steal of jeans! (go girl!) and the fat toes. Tell Cora she’s not allowed to slim down! hehe.
