what you can accomplish with a sling

poach an egg

cover lenna in bread crumbs while eating toast

do a little “step in time” with the boys (yes, i caved to the mary poppins soundtrack)

clean a toilet or three (granted, this was a bit awkward)

vacuum and watch the girl fade into sleep

wonder if i can count toting around 9+ pounds while cleaning as a workout…

  1. I’m so excited to practice my sling skills…with our baby GIRL !!!!! Yes, she showed us just what we wanted to know during our ultrasound this week. We’re so excited!!

  2. maggie – woo hoo! omar and i had a funny conversation over dinner trying to remember the order of your kiddos. i think we got it: girl boy boy girl boy boy girl. you’re so orderly with your babies πŸ˜‰

    lindsay – yeah, elisha used to have to be carried while we vacuumed. which is kind of weird considering you’d think his fear would make him want to run and hide…

    caron – go poach thee an egg! seriously, so easy. we used alton brown’s “recipe” and i’ve also played around with thomas keller’s from ad hoc. basically, bring an inch of water to a simmer in a saucepan with two teaspoons of vinegar and a teaspoon of salt. crack egg into little cup and add to simmering water. cover. turn off heat and let sit for 4 minutes and then remove with slotted spoon. so good!!
