Ground Control to Major Tom

I know that I pledged to get to the point with my blog entries and then turned around and posted a few long ones. Sorry! We now return to the abbreviated blog format!
Remind me why we spend so much money on toys when kids can have this much fun with a plastic bowl?

While Molly was playing, all that kept going through my head was the song Major Tom by David Bowie…

Ground Control to Major Tom

Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein drink
and put your helmet on

Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may God’s love be with you

This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can

Far above the world

Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do

Oh, and for the record, these pictures were taken last week. Today, Molly has a sinus infection. Her mood is similar to Linda Blair in The Exorcist. You know the part where she was in full-on demonic possession mode? That's where Molly is today. I'm just waiting for her head to spin around 360 degrees. Oh yea. we are having some fun.
