life of yehuda

its 9:30 am and yehuda has done almost everthing he does already and its still very early . he woke up and sat in his highchair until he got a bottle, while taking a break from from eating he went under the mat with the toys hanging down from it, after a few minutes of that he went into his excersaucer, after about 10 minutes of that he finished his bottle and had his diaper changed. the only thing left to do today is to sit in the swing. i hope he forgot about all the fun he already had so we can repeat it throught the day ad he wont get bored. ( he seems to feeling much better.)

I wonder if there was a class project, or if the same person tried all these different variations, and yet kept clicking on our blog... weird. I hope they find what they were looking for...

Oh $@%t!!

Jonah was playing the ball maze game on Shabbat and all the sudden he says "Oh Shit" (it sounded like "Sheet") So I said excuse me, and he said, very matter of factly that the ball fall off the rail. He had no idea what he said was a bad word. I realized in Hebrew, shit isn't considered a bad word at all, from what I gather it's pretty meaningless. So the question is, do I tell Jonah that what he said was a bad word, and bring attention to it, or do I just say that he was speaking hebrew and that it's OK for him to say it.

At the time I didn't say anything, as I didn't want to bring the attention

3- When gasoline costs over 7 dollars a gallon, do you just turn the motor off and coast down hills ?
