Me: We're going to camp, Ben. Ben: Beach? Me: No, can you say "camp?" Ben: Beach! Me: C-C-Camp. Ben: C-C-Beach.
Jack: How old are you? Ben: Two. Jack: Yes, but how old does your grandpa want you to be? Ben: Um, six. Jack: Yay, Ben! That's right!
Jack: Can I watch one more show? Me: Hmm . . . what if we fry your brain? What then? Jack: I just won't be as smart. I can live with that.
My dad turned 60 this week. He also ran his 11th marathon. Incredible.
Today, a retiree made a comment to me about "When you're receiving social security checks . . ." That's cute.
Jack: "I DO NOT like Elmo. It's so old. From when I was a little kid."
Jack just snapped his fingers at me and said, "I NEED SOMEONE TO GET ME BREAKFAST!" Excuse me?! I have a lesson I need to go teach . . .
Pool = FAIL. But we did discover that Ben's tennis shoes will float in a pool when thrown in.
Few things bring me as much joy as watching my boys sing Oh Happy Day. #churchinthecar
Opening his presents. He put each thing away as took it out of the box! yfrog.com/nytocavj
2 years ago right now, contractions were 5 minutes apart. I was an hour from the hospital and wanted to stop by Target on the way. #denial
My contractions stop when I lay down. But when i lay down, I don't get much done. Grrrr.
After complaining all the way home about egg salad for lunch, they talked me into pizza. Then they ate my entire sandwich & asked for more.
I can hear my sister upstairs introducing Jack to songs from The Sound of Music. But I haven't heard Kyle's head explode. Yet.
No, I was not embarrassed when the drive thru worker from whom I ordered lunch remembered me from breakfast. Not at all.
This cracked me up. NOW I know what do do with that enormous surplus of "free time" I have when jack's at preschool! yfrog.com/h6xrsxij
After he tooted, Jack just smiled and said, "That was me just making nutrients." WHAT?! Who taught him that one?
In the middle of praying at bedtime, Jack said, "Uh, mom? Can you put some perfume on?" Ouch.
I hear Ben up in his bed yelling, "NO WAY! NO WAY!" I can't help but wonder what's going through his mind . . .
It's so funny that Ben laughs at something when Jack does, even though he has no idea what is so funny.
We've "narrowed" the list of baby names from two to four. Hmmmm . . .
Jack had to go to bed without dinner tonight. I know he won't starve, but I really do think I feel worse than he does.
Coincidence that my iphone was stolen at the same time Steve Jobs announced his resignation? Hmmm . . . I'll let you decide.
If your name is Oprah, you can call your show "Oprah." If your name is Katie, you need to come up with something a little more original.
Why do my children have the ongoing, irresistible urge to unfold my folded laundry?
Kyle just came into my office and asked if I had an envelope. That's cute.
We bought new tires and ordered new flooring today. Which makes me feel old. And broke.
Oh, Man in the yellow hat . . . you put your monkey in charge of clearing the dinner table. You were kind of asking for it.
Ben's watching Leapfrog Letter Factory, and every time the main character finishes a song, Ben says, "Thank you!"
Loved having staff at our house tonight. There's nothing better than an evening of laughter and oversharing to cap off a great summer.
Feeling really grateful for the amazing staff we've been able to work with all summer. I'll be sad to see them go this weekend.
We're taking our kids to the beach today. All 19 of them.
Ben's new favorite thing us to yell,"That way!" every time we get to an intersection & then scream if we go the other way. It's super fun.
A few things to remember for when you meet my daughter . . . http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lisa-bloom/how-to-talk-to-little-gir_b_882510.html
We have one VERY active baby! Any gender guesses?
I'm not usually one to brag, but . . . I'm going to anyway. http://www.babble.com/mom/work-family/best-mom-etsy-shop-handmade-mom-lukecommasara/
Oy. We are going to have a bummed out 4-year-old on our hands if we come home and tell him he has another brother instead of a sister.
The Olive Garden waiter left us 5 Andes mints, which was an obvious attempt to cause dissension in our marriage.
Ben's first hair cut. yfrog.com/kipjgvvj
"No money, no spendy. That’s how it works in our house. And it hurts." Love this. http://everydayepistle.com/2011/07/26/how-the-government-can-save-3-14-million-this-year/
