About Us

Lu: I was born first.
So that is why I got to write the first post for our blog.

(Really, there aren't that many perks to being older than your sister, because inevitably your mom turns to her and says, "Because you're younger you get to choose [name your favorite kid treat] first. " Totally unfair, and it really happened.)

This blog is a joint effort because neither of us wanted the sole responsibility for our Own Blog; it's ten times better to have a blogging partner. That way, when your blogging juice is running low, you can delegate (pawn) the responsibility on the other person.

So, we've chosen what our dad would call "flakey" nicknames to mask our identities and create ultra cool blog status. This boils down to our lifelong desire to have alternate identities. (we just thought they'd be a tad more impressive, like Ice Crusher).

Moo:  Once upon a while ago,

Lu turned 5. And mocked me that she was not only 5 and I wasn't---but that she was taller too. I retorted that one day would I show her. Three years later I could not only see over the kitchen counter tops, but also over her. Maybe our parents pitied me more since I looked scrawny around the edges (see above photo--kid on the left), and gave me more seconds at dinner. In any case, no hand-me-downs!

Words are Lu's super skill, not exactly mine, so pardon if the occasional outline of a hand or large no. 5 in crayon on a paper plate appear as posts. I don't have any paper plates at the moment, so that one will have to wait to be realized.

With that, we welcome  you to our blog.
