A JC Penny Ad and Some Knowledge The Boogaloo Has Gathered in Her One Year and One Month Here on the Planet

Part of me thinks, "Advertising fail. I will never smile while because of using a whisk broom." On the other hand, part of me thinks, "It would probably be better for my mental health and general well being if I at least gave smiling while using a whisk brook a shot."


Newest favorite activity for The Boogaloo: taking off the door to the filter for the washing machine. As you can see, we're slightly concerned about the fact that it won't go back on as easily as it comes off, but that's okay. We'll just throw it in the cat litter as usual.

It's incredible how much they learn the first year. I'd like to replace the milestones listed in the Boogaloo's baby book with others that are more pertinent to what she's actually learned and accomplished:

Torturing the cat is a never ending source of amusement, as are splashing in the toilet and unrolling the toilet paper roll.

Pretending to be obedient and then running away at the last moment is even MORE amusing, as is hiding when you know people are looking for you.

Sign language for "done" is all well and good, but deliberately tossing pieces of food onto the floor while maintaining eye contact with the nearest adult is a much faster way to gain freedom from the high chair.

And perhaps most importantly -

You can probably get away with it if you look like this:
