Maybe all this NPR isn't good for him

Anyone who knows me knows I listen to WAY too much NPR. As in, it goes on when I wake up, goes off at dinner time. I have had these lovely visions of how well-informed and cultured Sidamo will grow to be with non-stop exposure to incisive news and witty commentary. Surely, even in his not-completely-verbal phase, he's absorbing something, right?

As a matter of fact he is absorbing something, but it isn't quite what I had in mind. See, every two minutes or so, someone from either NPR or our local member station is trying to direct people online for more information, pleading for us to "visit npr.org," or "learn more at kcfr.org." It never really registered to me just how frequently we hear this until I was driving the other day (listening to NPR of course) and heard a little voice in the back seat yelling, "O-R-G! O-R-G!" Which, coming from a not-yet-2-year-old, sounds an awful lot like, "ORGY! ORGY!"

Can't wait until he starts doing it in public. How highbrow will we look then?

Oh that's too funny! Eliza's asleep on my lap and she woke up for a second, I was giggling so hard. :)

We're still working on Z saying "poisionous" instead of--well, a male body part. And as for NPR, enjoy it while you can. My kids always whine when I try to listen to it...

That's hilarious!

Every time our oldest has a question, I always say "we'll look that up on the internet." (Thinking I was teaching how to find his own answers.) When he started school he was nicknamed "Jacob.com." He thinks it's funny.

So funny! This is my first time to your blog and I immediately recognized all the CU gear. I live in Boulder right next to the practice field! We are starting the process to our little girl. I would love to keep in touch.
