Two More Things About Me...# 101 & # 102 I have been hearing some "grief" from two of my bestest friends about not mentioning something about them in the "100 Things About Me" post.

So, here goes nothing...

101. I met my bestest friend (I'll call her AB and she will know why!) when the two of us interviewed for the same job. My older sister, who worked at a placement agency, sent us both on the interview because she said we were "separated at birth". The company loved us both and split the job responsibilities in two so that they could hire us both. On our first day of work, she pranced into my office, sat on my desk, ate some of my dried apricots, and passed gas! To this day, we still laugh about it and call dried apricots "Pooty Things"!

102. At my last job, I worked in the Accounting Department for a major Home Builder. My supervisor (the same woman who gave me that dreadful movie about the homicidal clowns), the HR Specialist, and I use to go to lunch together all the time. We usually went to Tijuana Flats or Old Chicago and then hit the Steak & Shake drive-thru on the way back to the office for their Sippable Sundae Milkshakes. Shortly after I learned that I was pregnant with Bryleigh, both of them left the company. One moved to Texas and the other went to work for another company. I miss them both and cannot bring myself to enjoy milkshakes from Steak & Shake anymore without them!

So...AB and Redpath...are you both happy now?

Hugs and Kisses to you both!

And Denise...I hope you don't feel slights...after all, you were mentioned twice!

Late Night TV

It's past midnight...what am I doing up?!?!

Bryleigh's teething and has an upset stomach. Poor baby. Not much that I can do except love on her and rub those sore little gums.

So while we are both awake, I decided to do some channel surfing to see what is on TV. I have to say that this program intrigues me as well as leaves a sick feeling in my stomach...

The show is touted as a "Social Experiment" to help five young couples decide if they have what it takes to get married, set up a household, have and raise children...etc.

When I first heard about the program, I was sick to my stomach at the thought of handing over either one of my girls to a teenage couple to practice parenting with. Thankfully the producers of the show seem to have thought ahead. Each house is rigged with cameras so the real parents can watch 24/7 from across the there is also a professional nanny just footsteps away to rescue the infant from harm's way...

I think that this couple seems to be the best at parenting their infant.

This couple seemed to really want to play with their infant and have fun...but they got frazzled too fast.

This couple seemed to do alright with their baby, but there was alot of "drama" before the little one arrived.

I was worried about how this young man would react to their baby, but was surprised at how he stepped up to the responsibility. She decided to play prima-donna when the real mom showed concerned that she wasn't doing enough to help the baby eat. Now she wants nothing to do with the baby.

And this couple...they have the youngest and cutest baby in the group. That cute little baby just lights up when she sees her temporary daddy but cries for her fake mommy. Too bad he seems to be the class clown and keeps referring the the baby as "It"!

From what I have read, the teenage couples get to take care of their babies for 3 days and then move on to toddlers, tweens, teenagers & pets, and finally elderly parents. Pretty sure that by the end of the experiment, they won't look as cute and eager to please!

I guess this was the first show. Cannot believe that not only did I watch the entire show, but now I'm posting about it!

So tell I the only one watching this? Am I a nerd or just sleep-deprived?
