Tutu in Town


... watching the "Hot Dog" video -- aka, a video that Sally took of Maile dancing to the Hot Dog Dance, from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  It cracks me up that Maile loves to watch herself on video. (Also, pleeease tell me you know what the Hot Dog Dance is!)

We haven't gotten to spend much time outside lately, and I am so ready to get back in the sunshine! We are fortunate to live in a neighborhood with wonderful walking paths, so Tim, Maile, the boys and I will be taking full advantage of whatever we can this week. We're supposed to be on the receiving end of some unseasonably warm weather, which will be sooo nice! 

We had a great week last week. Tim's dear mama was in town from Northern California, and Maile got to spend a few days getting in some quality time with her Tutu (or, "Paupau", as she designated her -- we decided that it might be because trains are "toot-toots"). Despite the fact that Tim, Maile and I had norovirus, we enjoyed every bit of our time with Sally. It was a visit that made me wish we lived closer to both Sally, and my parents. Every time we see them, it's never enough time. Her visit was lovely, though, and we already can't wait to see her again.

I hope all of you had a great weekend. I'm looking forward to getting back in the swing of things! (... and sharing our belated Christmas with all of you!)

    1. Haha. Maile hardly watches any TV, but we put on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse while I make breakfast. She LOVES the Hot Dog Dance at the end of the show; it's really the only part she watches!

      We are feeling much better today ... thank you, friend!

    1. You should! I'd love to see that!

      Ugh ... Yeah, I wouldn't wish norovirus on ANYONE. I have been sanitizing like crazy since we all started feeling better!

  5. The only parts of the show that catch my guy's attention are the intro song and the hot dog dance. And like you...we don't watch hardly any TV, but when I really need to get something done, occasionally I wish they had a whole episode of the hot dog dance playing over and over again...although as soon as I typed that, the thought of that actually happening also made me instantly cringe. Ha!

    1. That sounds just like Maile! ... the songs are what get her.

      Haha! The bit about a looped version of the Hot Dog Dance made me laugh out loud. So funny!

  6. I swear Maile and Nayeli are somehow in sync with one another!! These girls like and do all the same things!! Nayeli absolutely loves to read books, loves videos and pix of herself, is a DIE-HARD Mickey fan and especially loves the Hot Dog song (they have it on YouTube and plays 5X's in a row!! Maybe it's in their blood line somewhere =) Crazy babies!! Mine can't go a day without Yo Gabba Gabba tho...
    Everytime you post things Maile does - I wish you guys lived closer as well. I can't wait for another visit so we can get these girls together again!!

    1. It must be because they're related! ;) My sister's baby, Michael, is a Yo Gabba Gabba kid, too. I put it on once for Maile, but she pretty much ignored it, LOL ...

      I wish we lived closer to y'all, too! We definitely have to get together in May.
