What I know

I can't tell you who's ahead of whom in the politial races happening in this state and country right now. But I can tell you how paper grocery bags are made, thanks to Mr. McFeely's video on Mr. Rogers today.

I can't tell you who was on Leno or Letterman last night or any night for the past few months, for that matter. But I can tell you how loud a 1 1/2-year-old screams when the toy she is playing with is taken away by her 3 1/2-year-old sister. (It's loud).

I can't tell you about any new restaurants or cool new places in the Twin Cities. But I can tell you that two small pieces of Halloween candy are all the incentive a 2 1/2-year-old needs to finish her peas.

I can't tell you about the latest Hollywood romance or scandal. But I can tell you that Dora the Explorer underwear works wonders for young female potty trainers.

I can't tell you how to lose 10 pounds in five days or get ahead in the workplace. But I can tell you that a baby who wakes up from a nap with a smile on his face can just about make your day!

My, how my world has changed.

Dora the Explorer.. I sure don't miss watching that! :) When I lived with my sister a few years ago, it was Sarah's favorite! and I'm pretty sure she has some Dora underwear herself! :)
