I am a Christian, a mommy, and a wife who makes her living caring for other people's very tiny or very sick newborn babies as a neonatal nurse pracitioner. When I'm not at work I love to read, cook, and bake. I love most dogs, and tolerate some cats. I was born sarcastic and try to find the humor in every situation (much to the chagrin of my poor husband).
Thank you Caillou. Sophie was watching the "Marching Band" episode of Caillou on a regular basis (I believe Janet Gibson saw it no less than 40 times on the way to and from Florida). Then she realized that she also had a drum with a strap and could re-enact it at any time. It is HILARIOUS to watch her march around the house with her drum. The girl has rhythm.
One night when Sophie was clearly not interested in what I wanted her to do, I got frustrated with her. Finally I looked at her and said "Sophie, it is time to march your little self upstairs and get ready for bed." She got up from what she was doing and grabbed my hand. As we were headed to the stairs I wondered why she was walking so funny. I looked down and she was....you guessed it...marching.
