Handle with care

Last night Sylvia went to bed at about 4:30 or 5, after refusing to fall asleep on the way home from church, and slept all the way through the night until 5:30 in the morning. While getting up that early made today a little sleepy, spending a full, uninterrupted night with Derrick was a nice present. We watched a movie (The International) while we ate bratwurst while sitting in front of the TV--a luxury we haven't attempted since we had Sylvia.

Speaking of sausages, Derrick found hot dogs he actually approves of, and even likes. It's amazing. He turns his nose up automatically for every hot dog I've ever fed to Sylvia (which is unfortunate, since Sylvia likes hot dogs). I don't even buy them for her anymore because Derrick harasses me about feeding her something so patently unhealthy.


  1. Min and Ed are true hot dog lovers as well. They like most meat products -- especially vienna sausages. Feed some of those to Sylvia and make Derrick really gag!

  2. Sylvia loves those, too--but I can't stand them. I love a good hot dog, especially if it's got that nice dark crispy skin. Vienna sausages are a little too water-logged for my tastes.
