If The Kitchen Table Could Talk

We had an impromptu sundae party last week to start off Simon's preschool year and Jeff set up the tripod and filmed it. I fully realize this may be much more hilarious to us because they are our children, but if you have children, you can at the very least appreciate the shenanigans that often (always) conspires at the kitchen table. You won't be surprised at all to learn that Lena steals the show around minute 3:38 and on. This is my life people.




We're thinking about making this a dinner time series. We've got a stock pile of dinner time's past to work with now.
And when one day I'm locked away inside an insane asylum, I'll have legit video to back up my story while I'm tuckered in the corner staring blankly rocking back and forth back and forth.

This was amazing. Up until Simon left the scene, Ethan was laughing hysterically. I picked up soon thereafter with Lena's shenanigans. You're so much more patient than me. I would have nipped that concoction making in the bud the moment the first paper towel got drenched in maraschino cherry juice! So classic!

Oh, Lena. She's my favorite little artist friend. I want her to come take a kid's class at the Art Institute of Chicago!

That was fantastic to watch. Horrifying, yet extremely satisfying at the same time. I totally snorted when the paper towel ringing started happening! Love this (and I'm loving Jeff's video work---awesome!!)

This is fantastic! Won't it be fun to watch together in 10 years to show Lena how crazy she was?

Much better than the slide shows of my childhood.

Did I just make myself sound old? Dang it.

I love this! I could've been watching my own... Lena and Maggie need to meet... or maybe that would be disastrous.
