Things you should know

If you are trying to put in your old VHS tape of Rolie Polie Olie for your three-year-old to watch, but the tape keeps springing back out at you,

you might want to check that there’s not a binkie in the VCR.

It might also interest you to know that pieces of bread are harder to remove from VCRs than binkies are, that bread can sometimes lead to permanent VCR damage, and that to some toddlers, the slot of a VCR is indistinguishable from that of a toaster.

    Yes, we learned the VCR bread facts firsthand. It was a “new” technology, so we fortunately bought a service/replacement policy. Nathan discovered the fun of toasting bread in the VCR when he was very young. He also learned what happens to the TV when you cut the cord off, firsthand.

    I’m glad it was a binkie, this time.

    Reason #9,721 I’m thrilled to be past the toddler stage . . .

    (Granted, I’m entering the teenage stage, so I’m not sure which of us has the better deal.)

    Hello Zina!
    This is Brad’s sister, Tiffany! I actually “found” you on Jennie’s (beehive and birdsnest) blog! Jennie and I have been best friends since BYU days. So you do yo know her? Blogging only? Small world! Nice to see your family and you!

      Yes, only through blogging–probably first “met” her through the Segullah site. What a small and funny world indeed. How nice to see you! You have six kids now? Wonderful.
