The things we pass onto our kids...


She's never seen me do it, so I can only chalk it up to being genetic. Alexandria is a sore loser and a gloating winner. I hate to lose. I'm pretty competitive - not so much on the outside, depending on the company. The sore loser thing is probably pretty common in kids, since none of us really LIKE to lose, but it's the being all gloaty when she wins that makes me laugh.

We were playing a board game with her (Checkersaurus Rex - the flip side) and she won. She was all smiles and was doing this little, butt-wiggling dance. Jean-Paul just looked at me and said sarcastically, "I wonder where she gets that?" Ok. So I get a little jiggy when I win. So? Well, apparently the little "I won"-butt-wiggle-dance has been somehow genetically passed on to the next generation. Wonder what else will pop up?

You, me & Mario Kart has to happen soon! We'll see if you do your happy dance after that ;).

Thanks again for the tea chest (and the tea blossoms; I can't wait to try those!). You have no idea how much it helped to organize things. I'm such a geek and took "before" and "after" shots of the tea cupboard and the way it was organized! ;)

You're welcome :)

I don't think I'll be beating anyone at Mario Kart!
