I just need to correct you on the last sentence in that clip, "It's beautiful and it's amazing."
Yes.... and no.

What you meant to say (about you and Mr Clod) is "We're beautiful and we're amazing."
Oh and throw the mini-fobs in there too of course, because they are. But because of you.

Thank you always for sharing.

Confession: I've watched our video probably a dozen times now, and for the first time in my life it's really hit me--I have the crazy eyes. My whole life people have described me as intense or otherwise over-the-top, which I've accepted but never really understood because the words coming out of my mouth never seemed that wild to me, but I get it now. It's my giant bug eyes.



It turns out I am the Overly Attached Girlfriend:

You do not have crazy eyes - or indeed bug eyes, giant or otherwise.

Clodfobble, Mr Fobble

I want you to know that *I* appreciate what you're doing as parents, more than you know, more than I can say. You set a great example of loving diligence and I really want you to know that your efforts *are worth it*.

You're the very picture of those who have had greatness thrust upon them. Good job Mom, Good job Dad.

I probably wouldn't notice, I'm used to people being bug-eyed when they interact with me.

WTF? How dare they use lower case for your name. A travesty, an injustice, this shall not stand!
How can I name drop, my imaginary(online) friend, famous writer lady from Texas, lower case.

That was a touching video. It's obvious that you and Mr. Fob are willing to go to the mat for your kids. It's also amazing to see and hear them in comparison to your description here: http://cellar.org/showpost.php?p=511166&postcount=1

I'm telling my local brick and mortar store to carry it. When you come for the book signing I'll give you a personal tour of the hinterlands.
