Asher & Miriam sing along

Yeah, it’s Who Better Than Me by Phil Collins with the Turk and Tarzan names changed but it covers just about any two closely aged siblings IMHO:

You’re one of a kind, I can’t explain it.
You’re kind of cool, in a wonderful way.
Though you’re weird, you can make it.
And who better than me to teach you.
Who better then me to set you on your way. (Mhm)

This could take some hangin’ in there
Though with persuasion I can take you on up
Make you grow up, beside the others
And who better than me to lead you
Who better than me to take you all the way (Hey hey hey yeah)

Asher & Miriam
Struggling along for years and years

Until I came along for you
Now its all comin’ together

Asher & Miriam
And together will see this through
You for me and me for you

I can learn, I can listen
I know there’s something
Deep inside but
I need assistance to go the distance

And who better than me

To teach me

Who better than me

To tell me all you know


Who better than me

You reach me

Who better than me

Asher & Miriam
To show them all we know!

Asher: Please don’t make me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.

FW from My daughter’s first sled ride

Miriam got a fantastic Hanukah present from her daddy.

She loves it, and had a great time being pulled around, first by Uncle Nate, then by Zaydee (grandpa), and finally by daddy.  They stayed on the lawn and sidewalk, and she giggled and laughed!

Then Daddy accidentally took a turn a little fast.

If it had just been snow, she would have been fine, but there was a thin layer of ice on top of the snow, and she face planted onto it.  Poor little Monkey.

She’s fine now.  She only cried because she was startled, and the scratches are almost completely healed now.

It did make for some fun explanations at the Hanukah party last night though.

I think she looked like she got into a fight with a badger, but everyone else says it isn’t so bad.

My poor baby.

She’s fine now though.  :)

There are lots more pictures, as always, on flickr.

FW: num nums

From my wife’s blog:

Num num num.  What is this bowl full of stuff that daddy has been eating?  Is it fun for playing with?

Yes it is!

Is it tasty?


Is it messy?

Oh heck yeah!

It’s a good thing mommy got a dog.

Daddy sure seems impressed.

This post was brought to you by an inattentive daddy and a bowl of pasta with pesto sauce.

I’m tired now.  Tata.
