Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

The Unbearable Cuteness of Being(s)

There was a very little boy in the store with his grandmother yesterday. Maybe two years old? He loved to talk and to identify things and he had one of those adorable little kid voices — excited and sweet. They had made it almost all the way around the store when he spotted the Snow White musical snowglobe sitting on the front desk. He got very excited, pointed at the base and said in his little voice "hi ho! hi ho!" I asked his grandmother if he had seen Snow White. "I don't think so," she told me. But I wondered . . . how else would he associate "hi ho" with a dwarf? Later, he spotted our much larger yard gnome with accordian, and instantly started with the excited "hi ho!"s again. Further questioning solved the mystery. He had seen a video. Someday, probably soon, he'll discover the words dwarf and gnome. But I kind of like "hi-ho"s myself . . .
