The Backyardigans Have Become My Babysitter
Well, THAT Labor Day sure came and went.
Things have been a little chaotic over here. Roadtrip adventures to Idaho (multiple posts could not do it justice), planning for a last-minute trip to Colorado this weekend, gargling my heart while doing Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred (today is Day 11), submerging myself in the Twilight series (starting Book 4 right now – NO SPOILERS PLEASE), keeping up with my freelance work (including a new weekly column that has me so excited, I can’t stand it), and of course, taking care of Wito the man.
(Oh, did I mention that my beloved nanny who watched Wito two half-days a week while I worked on said freelance projects decided to double major? And left my cheese in the wind? And I have no help right now? While I’m trying to write, hmmm, let’s see, 3 weekly columns and 2 blogs, among other things such as RUNNING A HOUSEHOLD? Can you believe she would choose furthering her education over a nanny job? I mean, WHY AMY? DON’T YOU WANT TO BE A NANNY FOREVER?
(No? I see.)
So, yeah, on top of that, I’m in the midst of nanny interviews. We all remember how interesting that was last time, right?
I guess you could say I’m feeling a little overwhelmed right now. In a good way, though.
Meanwhile, while trying to get everything accomplished, Wito has developed a major obsession with The Backyardigans. Tyrone, specifically. Have any of you seen the Polka Palace Party epsiode? Well, that episode has BECOME my part-time nanny for the time being.
If you aren’t familiar, let me introduce you to the world of The Backyardigans.
And if you see an enormous toddler in a cowboy hat running around town singing “Yip! Yip! Yip! Yip!”, that would be my Wito. Go easy, his mother is a little frazzled right now.
