I was at the park the other day, pushing Trevor on a swing. There was a couple next to me with a baby that looked to be 8 or 9 months, maybe even younger, and he was very obviously their first child. They were totally enamored with him, and they were just fascinated with him on the swing. (The baby was adorable, and he was cracking up.) And I was very aware I was standing there pushing my second, thinking about what I was going to do after they went to bed that night and what movie to watch.

I'm in absolutely no way mocking the parents who were next to me; instead, it really took me back. I remember those days of thinking every last thing Toby did was new and exciting and cause for pulling out the camera. I'm very glad that the days of being a new parent are over- they were hard and I did not enjoy the infant stage. But watching this couple with their baby made me remember that first year very fondly, and all the wonderful moments in it.

Now to go wake up my own little hellions :)

From all over my flist:

Ask me my Top Five Whatevers. Fannish or literary or otherwise. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! Fandoms, ice cream flavours, cartoon moments, women in my fandoms, OTPs, ideal holiday destinations, goals for the future, celebrity crushes, books I wish would be made into movies, love songs. And I will answer them all in a new post (or in comments). Possibly with pictures.

Remix duello signups are open! I offered up "Freaks and Geeks", which I've been dying for a remix of ever since I wrote it. So, EEE! did not include much of a "Dear Remixer" letter, because really, what would I say? I understand "Dear Yuletide Writer" letters, but "dear remixer" ones seem to stretch it more, and in this case, where the remixer is taking one specific fic, they seem really unnecessary. Of course, I could always be wrong.

In-laws are coming tonight. Pizza for all!

Twelve colony ficlets! This was such a fun challenge. And it produced such great fics. I had two, both using the same grouping (Billy and Hoshi). One was conventional, and the other was... oh good GOD, what happened to my brain????? (Fractured Family is the frakked up one- Stripped Naked is much more conventional.) I think I'd like Fractured Family more if I'd had another 1000 words to work with. ::sigh::

Other note: I don't even… when I was thinking of this challenge, I was not really thinking such AU territory. If it's too AU, please let me know, and I'll write another. Seriously- this one is so cracked out it makes my head hurt.
