I am a Mommy

GZ was shrugging his shoulders so I quoted to him from Eric Carle's From Head to Toe, "I am a buffalo and I shrug my shoulders... can you do it?"
He did it a few times; very cute.
 
Then I looked at Naomi and said, "I am a choochie and I smile so nicely."
She stared straight back at me and said "I am a mommy... and I hate my daughter."
 
Testing, testing.
Always with the testing.

  5. Technically... 37 visitors yesterday, but who's counting??? :-)

    But they're all looking for technical reviews of Windows Live vs Picasa, which is apparently what I do best.

    I'm happy to have even four REAL readers who didn't fall into the blog by accident!!!

    You should really syndicate (or whatever) this blog on your FB profile. Why don't you?

  8. Wow, what did you answer back to her when she said that?!?

    Even though how many people comment is only a small reflection of how many people are visiting, I thought I'd still post and let you know I stopped by your blog on purpose. :)

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
