New Series: Wren’s Video Picks

After a busy day of crawling, cruising, block-stacking, and block-stack knocking-down, we begin our nighttime routine. It begins with the change into overnight diapers and proceeds apace to tooth brushing, after which I take Robin into the bedroom to nurse down. I used to nurse both kids together at bedtime, but now they keep each other awake, using my belly as a bongo, jabbing each other in the eye, giggling insanely. So now it’s Robin’s turn first, and only after he has drifted off does Husband bring Wren in.

While Robin and Mama snuggle, Daddy and Wren spend their special time together perusing YouTube. We have begun to collect Wren’s favorite videos, which I thought I would share for the possible benefit of other hip, internet-lovin’ babies and toddlers.

Wren’s first video pick: Multiple SIDosis, by Sid Laverents. The first half may be interesting to adults, but the action – and Wren’s favorite part – really gets going at the 4:50 mark.

    Brilliant! I love Sid because he plays MY instruments…banjo and ukulele! The mouse-ears and whiskers are pretty darn attractive too! Thanks to Wren for sharing!

    Fabulous. Viv loves YouTube videos of trucks. She seems to think the computer is just a conduit for more truck videos.

    I don’t know what is funnier – the fact that Wren is transfixed by this or that you found it in the first place.

    Thanks for sharing! I think my son would enjoy this. For a long time he loved ABC videos on YouTube, then it was numbers (lots of Sesame Street animations), but lately it’s all about Legos, dominoes, and marble ramps. I’m just really glad he’s over the hamster dance.

    And btw, “block-stack knocking-down”? GAWD, how I miss that. The pure, unadulterated joy. The giggles, the squeals. {{jealous}}

    Speaking of odd things on the innerwebs, check this out: (be sure to scroll down). It kinda reminds me of your epic peep stories (although admittedly, not as good.)
