Christmas presents 2013

Here it is, my annual holiday gift round-up. As usual, no pictures — don’t want the kids peeking anything from across the room. This list isn’t quite complete. I’m a little bit using it to figure out what else I need. Though we are being real hammers this year about not getting too much. Our [...]

Book movers

Annoying thing that toddlers and preschoolers do: “We are playing house,” says Zuzu. I won’t even get into what this means for how they think I do my housekeeping. addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ‘Book+movers’; addthis_pub = ”;

Introducing: Z Braids

Yes, that’s right, just a few days ago, I was lamenting my lack of fun hair ideas, and now (thanks to all your suggestions, and inspired by the braided letter series at Babes in Hairland), we have created a Z for Zuzu. addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ‘Introducing%3A+Z+Braids’; addthis_pub = ”;

Girl Hairdo Inspiration Ideas?

Does anyone know of a book or website that has girl hairdo ideas beyond basic braids and ponytails? There must be something more instructional than just looking at the girls in the Hanna Andersson catalog. (I’m talking more about Zuzu here. Ramona’s options are basically random ponytails thrown about her head region.) addthis_url = ‘′; [...]


Here’s Zuzu, in response to “how old are you?” I’m also posting this video so you can all think, “Oh, at least my house isn’t as messy as hers.” addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ’5-68-99-H’; addthis_pub = ”;

It’s all about the nod

There is something so, so cute to me about pre-verbal toddler nods and head shakes. They’re so excited, so happy: “I can tell you what I mean! I can say yes to milk, and no to socks!” I wanted to get a video of a Ramona nod before the opportunity passed me by and she [...]


Another birthday, just like that, and Zuzu is 3! For months — months! — she has been requesting cherry-related items for her birthday. We all laughed about it until about a month ago, when I realized I’d better do something. Alas, I never did find the requested cherry horse, cherry house, cherry car, or cherry [...]

The Language of Zuzu

Now offering classes in Zuzu 101, Conversational Zuzu, and Advanced Conversational Zuzu. Note that I am still a beginning speaker myself. Um, and note also that Iris’s house is clearly a lot cooler than our house. addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ‘The+Language+of+Zuzu’; addthis_pub = ”;

The Two Main Dancing Styles Here at World of Julie

Mostly they run in circles. Though sometimes they bop back and forth. Sorry for Dance Style #2 being so far away, but I was afraid if I got closer they would know what I was doing and would stop. I felt a little like I was hiding in the brush taking video of wildebeests in [...]

Your Weekly Zuzu

Quintessential Zu: chocolate all over her face, boy sweater, hat, necklace. Also the hat nicely shows off the That Girl flip she gets going most days: addthis_url = ‘′; addthis_title = ‘Your+Weekly+Zuzu’; addthis_pub = ”;
