We’ve been a little busy.

Last Sunday H and I went to Brooklyn to film a segment of Sesame Street! It won’t air for about a year; season 46 is on now, and she filmed for season 47. Kathy passed on a message from a work acquaintance that a casting director for the show was looking for kids Hannah’s age to film some segments. They wanted kids of all ethnicities and all abilities, so I followed the quick application process, and a couple of weeks later we got an email from the casting lady to see if we were free that weekend.

I was at Universal a few years ago, when the Harry Potter section was new, but I’d just found out that I was pregnant and couldn’t ride anything. My brother-in-law Thomas and I took a break from Disney and went over to Universal last week. I Harry Potter’d! I did so much Harry Pottering!

We’re going to Disney World in September, and even though Halloween will be weeks away we’ll be going to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This is H’s first trip to Disney, and it’ll be our first time at the Halloween festivities. So I asked her what she wanted her costume to be, and we looked at some Disney characters and shows that she loves. She immediately settled on PJ Masks, and she was adamant that she would be Gecko, I would be Owelette, and Adam would be Catboy.

Other posts on this trip: Legoland Windsor, Liberty of London!, And All the Rest of Southern England, Center Parcs, Sherwood Forest.

I have deadlines, and so many trip photos, but I really want to document what we did. This blog is my archive, so bear with me. I have two (or maybe three?) posts left to get out.

I went to NYCC last weekend, one day on my own and one day with Hannah. She had her picture taken with Batman, who was taking his NYCC duties very seriously. Hannah had no idea what was going on.

I’ve been busy over at GeekMom, and I have a few posts I’m really proud of. All of my posts are here, but in the past few weeks I did a roundup of the Best Audio Books for Family Road Trips, Disney’s 2013 Holiday Gift Preview, and HIT Entertainment’s 2013 Holiday Gift Preview. I also wrote I Took My 15-Month-Old to the Movies, analyzing whether or not Hannah is ready for the big screen.

I’ve always liked Ben Affleck, but I really liked the speech he gave for Argo’s Best Picture win at the Oscars on Sunday. And yes, I know this is tilted. But it’s the best version of the entire speech that I could find.

This is too ridiculous for words, but it looks like so much fun. Must read the book first.

It was also, I think, the official end of my ability to wear regular pants until this baby arrives. By the end of the month it was just painful squeezing into pants that felt absolutely fine a few weeks before.
