"you are my favorite robot maker helper, dad. i super super 'cited you making robots with me, dad. you are my really favorite."

is there anything better than a three-year-old in a paper-bag-turned-robot-costume, talking in her best robot voice and walking her very stiffest robot walk with her dad first thing on a weekday morning? 


just before bed tonight, eve and ruth, clad in the newest robot costumes (cardboard boxes, we upgraded) ran at, smashed into and literally bounced off of each other over and over and over. robot war. everyone made it to bed unharmed, but now this song (which has been in my brain for well over a year now) is playing on a continuous loop. . . i think maybe i need to make a robot mix so we can have a robot dance party. with a couple more deliveries from UPS we'll have enough costumes for a little civilization. . . add some music, several little bodies and it will be total robotic chaos. could be great.

So great. Kind of reminds me of when my sisters and I would run around our Dad's house to Kraftwerk's "We Are The Robots" song in the 1980s.

there really isn't anything better. Especially when she is saying it through the binky in her mouth. I'm so glad she still has it!

So cute! I'd be scared what Robot wars would turn into around here.
Chip is a good dad!

At first glance I just assumed that the two robots were the girls, and when I realized it was Chip I got a good laugh! Awesome
