Test post from ECTO

Hello everyone. This is a test post from Robin's husband! Just got Robin a new Mac Mini and I am setting up a very easy way to post a blog to Blogger from her new Mac.

Unfortunately right now Blogger does not support images from anything but Picassa... bummer. Robin is not going to like that, but hopefully they will soon.

Hope you enjoy...

Where are Max and Ruby's Parents?

Reia has officially traded in Hi-5 and The Magic School Bus for Lazytown and Max and Ruby. What I want to know is where are the parents for all of these characters?

Max and Ruby's grandmother, bunnyscout leader and a handful of other adults show up, but never mom and dad. (For all the episodes I have seen anyway.) The same seems to hold true for Lazytown. The mayor, Ms. Busybody, Sportacus and Robbie Rotten are the only adults around town. And, I don't know if Robbie Rotten is supposed to be a real adult.

So, there is my quirky question of the day.

P.S. I have realized I somehow double posted my blogging mommies question. Since people have commented on both, I won't delete. But, I'm still not sure how that happened.

Multi-Blogging Moms

Ok, really, I want to know how they do it. Frankly, I can barely keep up with one blog and the 25 or so that I read daily. Even at 25, I come across many more I would add to my bloglines if I thought I could keep up with those too.

So, if you are a multi-blogging mom--do you blog and never sleep? I need as much sleep as my 14 month old, so that wouldn't work for me.

Got Milk?

At Reese's last checkup, her pediatrician suggested we put her on organic milk that is hormone free. No problem. So, we started buying Horizon. The only real problem is that Horizon is double the price of regular milk--if you buy generic, which I do. I looked for alternatives and have found my answer at Braum's.

Not only is Braum's milk just as good, if not better than most of the organics out there, it is less expensive that even the generic brand I was buying! How fabulous is that. I was discussing Braum's milk with a friend of mine and she told me she called Braum's to find out why the label didn't note it was organic--or just flat out nutritionally superior. They told her it takes 10 or more years to get through all of the FDA red tape so they could label it as such. So, they just leave it.

So, if you have a Braum's near you, give it a shot. Even their fat free milk is very creamy and delicious!

Back in the Saddle

Well, it's been several weeks of people in and out of the house to install this, fix that, update the other. Our internet is now working properly and I have a phone again! Yahoo! So, my plan is to blog at least once a week and more if the mood or topic hits me.

Again, we are enjoying city live immensely and the girls seem to like it to. I was surprised at how well Reia adjusted to her new room. I'm sure the pink walls and princess decor helped her be a little more excited; although, she still occasionally asks to go see her old room.

The girls and I have been driving around just checking out where every thing is over the past week. No only do we have a Target less than a mile away, but a Kohl's is opening right next to it in February.

Life is indeed good! Tee hee!

Bright Lights, Big City

Well, I am finding lots to love about living in a big city. Every thing is so close! I don't think I have driven more than 5 miles any one way on an excursion. Even the local library is 2.8 miles away. Today, we are going to see the story time there and hopefully meet some other kids that live around here.

So far, we are having a blast! I am glad God moved us in a direction we weren't planning. He just always has the best adventures. =)
