Sorry for the delay. It took me two hours to find my laptop, which was buried underneath all the wrapping paper. My daughter and I spent most of the night watching season No. 7 of The Simpsons on DVD, after we played The Simpsons' version of the old Operation game. Detect a theme here? She also received the first season of Desperate Housewives. They grow up so fast. I just gave her a Miguel Tejada chewable vitamin B-12 with her breakfast. I also had to scold my neighbor's kid earlier for having his finger jammed up his nose.
