i would like to draw your attention to a little bit of asymmetry in my life. on the left you will see miriam's vast quantity of stuffed toys and on the right you will see my paltry collection. i think this is a huge injustice! most of her toys squeak or rattle or make cool crunchy noises and some even play songs! half of mine squeak but i made the decision to stop their squeaking through a series of delicate operations. miriams toys are singing a siren's song to me, i hear their song at night. they call, "heeeeersheeeeeeeey...come chew on meeeeee...i need a tuuuuuummy tuck" its more than i can bear! (haha...i made a pun!) anyways, i need more toys! something is wrong here. i think mom should let us share! i mean she doesn't DO anything with them right now anyways! and by the time she is old enough to really play with them i will have redecorated them to her liking. i am sure she will appreciate the dismemberments, decapitations, and various plastic surgeries i will perform on them.
