So I received some iTunes gift cards for Christmas. I had about $30 to spend...that's about 30 songs. You talk about a dilemma...what songs do you select out of the thousands of songs out there? What a great problem to have. ITunes gift cards are fantastic. So here's what I selected including some guilty pleasures I'm almost embarassed to admit I like...but hey...I like what I like.

The entire album "Hastings Street" by Brazzaville

Five unreleased and rarity songs by Weezer including...

"I Swear It's True"
"Worry Rock"

"The Power of Love" by Huey Lewis and the News
"The Tide is High" by Blondie
"Take Me Out" by Franz Ferdinand
"Do You Wanna" by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
"Unbelievable" by EMF
"Mercy" by Sarah McLachlan (a song my wife wanted)
"Ordinary Miracle" by Sarah McLachlan (another pick by my wife)
"Are You Gonna Be My Girl" by Jet
"Mouth (The Stingray Mix)" by Bush
"Blue" by The Jayhawks
"Since I Don't Have You" by Guns 'n Roses

Things learned so far...

I had read a lot about child care during Kimberly's pregnancy. I had also taken a childcare class along with the labor class and the breastfeeding class. But learning is doing and I'm learning a lot. Some things I've picked up in the last week and a half...

* Always have a diaper cloth ready.
* You will do laundry everyday.
* Five minutes after you've changed a diaper they will christen the new one for you.
* They will spray you if you don't have a diaper cloth placed in the right location while changing diapers.
* They will change clothes at least four times a day.
* They are in charge.
* There are such things as milkaholics.
* They are the coolest thing to ever happen to you.
