We'll be spending New Year's Eve with Nana and Poppy...

Nana speaks French, so I hope she'll tell me what this song is about. I like it, but I have no idea what they are saying. The video is pretty too....

My New Year's Resolution...

... is to be more assertive. I've done the baby thing and waited for my bottle like a good little kid. I'm starting to use my words and now I'm ready to say, "Hey, I'm hungry.... gimme some crunchies!" Mommy says I should say, "Please", but if I want something, I want it now.

This is a photo of me trying the assertive thing out. I'm pointing to my mac and cheese, but it looks like I'm disco dancing. But I don't think Mommy is on board with this assertive thing. She usually looks at me and waits for me to calm down. I think this year will be interesting. I will be heard and taken seriously!!!

Music Break!!!

I'm tall for my age. Every time I go to see Doctor Sherri, she says, "Yep, she's still in the 95th percentile." That means I'm taller than 95% of the other kids my age. Everyone says I should be a supermodel or a basketball player when I grow up. I wish I knew what I was doing to make myself so tall. Maybe it's the applesauce. Or the mac and cheese. I love mac and cheese.

But even though I'm really tall for my age... I'm still smaller than everyone else. So I have to hold Daddy's hand in the parking lot. I still need a highchair. And everyone expects for me to act like a big, bad 3 year old when I'm not even 2! It can be tough being small. My New Year's resolution is to just be me. I'm good at that. Oh, and this is the band Milkshake. You can find other cool tunes on Jitterbug: Music for Hip Kids.

I'm tracking Santa!!!

Google is awesome! Apparently, they know Santa too and they gave him a GPS tracker so I know where he's giving gifts. You can follow him too! There's even a Santa-cam! Click here and everyone around the world can see where he is. But Mommy reminded me of Santa's rules. If I'm awake, he doesn't drop off gifts. I must be technically asleep for the gift-giving to occur.

I saw Santa!!!

We have a really great Volunteer Fire Department. Mommy said they know Santa really well, so every year, Santa makes a visit. She didn't tell me HOW he makes his visit. I was asleep last year, and I didn't know the whole story on this Santa guy.

Well, the Volunteer Fire Department gets in touch with Santa, and they get all of their trucks and then when it is really dark outside (around 7pm).... they LIGHT THEM UP AND HAVE A PARADE!!! They go up and down the streets making a whole lotta noise. So, we went to our front porch and waved. A fireman gave me a candy cane and Santa waved at me from on top of the fire truck. It was awesome. I'm such a lucky kid.

Dear Santa,

Thanks for stopping by. I like my candy cane. Mommy said not to play, wear, or eat any of my gifts until I send a thank you note. Thank you.

Somethin' to think about....

I play with a lot of book and toys that my parents kept from their childhood. They want me to be careful with them, but they thought if it was good for them, it's good for me.

Mommy said there's deeper meaning in this cartoon... somethin' about the daddy in the picture is some guy named Calvin and how things come full circle. Whatever. I think the tiger is cute lookin'.

It's not easy being a little kid....

That's why I started this blog... to show how being a little kid can be a bit challenging sometimes. This guy just wanted a drink of water. I feel for him. I haven't tried drinking from a hose yet, but I have a feeling it would be like this. I can drink from a cup, but I find that whole gravity thing fascinating. So I always turn it over and dump it out.

My parents never give me juice. Ever.

Dear Santa....

I'm not the only one who finds you intimidating. Check out these kids.

Maybe you should shave.



Dear Santa,

I know it looks like I have a lot of toys from this perspective. But I'm a busy kid who likes to learn a lot. If it isn't too much trouble... I'd love some new crayons for Christmas. Oh, and Edison Jackson Bear, IV would like Candy Land. He heard it's a fun game.
Sadie and Edison Jackson Bear, IV
P.S. We had a lot of fun giving other little kids toys at the Toys For Tots. Sorry if I was a bit shy. You can be intimidating in person.

If I'm ever President or Vice-President of the United States...

... you can be sure my mommy is coming with me. This is Joe Biden and his mommy. There's a lot of talk about the new elected people bringing their mommies with them. I think it's a good idea. I act better when my mommy is around. Don't you?

I've been practicing my drawing skills...

... and I sometimes miss the paper and draw on myself. I also like to eat my crayons. They are such yummy colors, I thought they would taste as good as they look. They don't.

But I thought this shirt might help when I'm doing my artsy stuff so Daddy doesn't have to do laundry as often. He doesn't like doing laundry. You can get it here.

I'm exploring different career paths...

Some days I want to be a politician, 'cause I'm a people person. Other days, I like the idea of going into real estate. It's the family business. But then I have moments where I think, "I love books!" I do. I love Curious George, Dr. Seuss, and I occassionally find a new, up and coming author that I like to promote.
So, Mommy said that I should talk to Miss Melinda Jane (aka. Mrs. Tomerlin) about becoming a librarian. Mrs. Tomerlin works with books every day at a museum library. She's always learning something new and she's surrounded by books all day. I like the idea of that.
Note to Santa: You can get this shirt in my size (probably a 4, in this case) at this site here. I'd wear it to storytime at the library.

Me and Daddy make each other laugh a lot...

We come up with new ways to make each other laugh.

Sometimes he sings wacky songs (tonight's lullaby was the theme to Cheers.) And sometimes I yell, "Weeeee!!!!" from my car seat when he is driving and turns left. I found this and thought he would find this joke funny:

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: "Take only ONE. God is watching." Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, "Take all you want. God is watching the apples."

At this very moment....

I was born on a Tuesday.
My star sign is Aries.
My birthstone is Aquamarine.
The season was Spring.
I was born in the Chinese year of the Pig.
The US President was George W. Bush (Republican).
The UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour).
I am 1 year 8 months 11 days old.
It is 110 days until my next birthday.
In dog years I am 7 years old.
I am 621 days old.
I am approximately 14,906 hours old.
I am approximately 53,660,824 seconds old.

I found this on a cool website... click here to find out your info...

Awww... man...

I'm too big for this outfit! It only goes up to sizes 9-12 months... But if Santa needed a few little helpers, I'm there. Even if I don't get to wear this outfit. Maybe I could just pull out my Leprechaun outfit.... it's in Christmas colors.

Daddy put up our Christmas Tree....

But my parents won't put any ornaments on it. They actually think I would do this to the tree. *sigh* Okay, I would like to take this moment to say sorry to Daddy when I climbed onto the couch, grabbed the big cup of cola on the bookshelf and dropped it on him. It was an accident. But no, I don't plan on doing this to the Christmas Tree. I promise.

You wanna know who's cool?

Canadians. They are pretty awesome. That's my Nainie and me when I was really, really little. She used to be Canadian, but then she magically became American. Mommy said this actually took a long time and a whole lotta paperwork.

Mommy also asked me to put this website on my blog because a lot of people would think it's really cool. It's called You Can't Do That on Television. Mommy said it was a Canadian tv show that she and my uncles used to watch all of the time when they were little. It had funny skits and people being slimed with green stuff. I've seen Mommy slimed, but it was after I threw up on her. I still hate peas. But I guess on this show being slimed is funny. Mommy didn't think it was funny when she got slimed.

So, today's thought: Canadians are awesome.
