I don't do kids. They are loud. They are sticky. There's a serous risk of offensive smells. They inhibit luxuriating in copious amounts of late sleeping. They get in the way of adult conversation.

But these two boys, I like 'em. A lot.

So I figured, since I'm a fan of Van and lack sans Jack, why not be like every other blogger out there and bore everyone with photos of cute kids?

Wow. It's so cool being one of the in-crowd.

Oh, and Holly, all of this is not to say that Elle wouldn't be welcome here at Casa Romo. I make exceptions for pretty, well-behaved little girls. (Of which the world offers few; so thanks for making Elle one of them.)


And a very happy 2nd anniversary this 2nd of March to Mr. and Mrs. Thalman.

Oooh, I love those two little things. At this moment, Van is eating a plastic butterfly and Jack is reading books. Love those boys.

I only want boys based on these two.

Just read this- and you were there- Elle is the reason you made the statement about kids getting in the way of adult conversation. Elle is not welcome despite her prettiness, I'll be the first to admit, and don't lie. That's why we're arranging for a sitter. Goodness knows we love her, but let's be honest, there is a time and a place.

Truth: I didn't find Elle annoying at all, Holls. Perhaps I was just too happy to be talking to you that all distractions flitted by without tapping my shoulder.

But thanks for being one of those parents who gets that leaving kids at home with a sitter can be good for all . . .
