Too Funny Tuesday

I didn't want to wait for a Friday Funny so I figured I would make up a new (not quite) alliteration. Sorry it has been nothing but crickets around here lately. Between a couple of projects, Little Dude's upcoming birthday party, and some unseasonably gorgeous weather, blogging has been taking a bit of a back seat. I will eventually catch up though. . . (maybe!)

The funnies don't stop when I'm busy though, they just don't always get written down and immortalized in blog form. Here's a real simple one from the other day when I was having some knee issues: I sat down and complained to the hubs that my knee had locked up. Little Dude overheard, came running and said, "Oh no mommy, should we find a key?"

It always makes me laugh when kids don't quite get a figure of speech, yet try to use it anyway. My kids sometimes get confused by the singular versus plural forms of words. For example, Little Dude used to exclaim "Yike" instead of "Yikes" when he first started talking. He hasn't done that for over a year, but recently Hailey brought me back by starting up with "Oop" whenever something drops (accidentally or otherwise). Little Dude really took the cake today though. He tripped over something on the floor and in his frustration he yelled out, "Oh craps!"
        *Not my proudest mommy moment since I'm pretty sure I know where he got that from. . . 
I'm working on it.

Half Birthday Fun

My precious and amazing little Baby Boo is officially 18 months old! I can't believe how quickly the time has flown. It doesn't cease to amaze me how quickly a baby can go from a completely helpless little bump on a log to an autonomous little person brimming with personality.

Friday Funny - March 9, 2012

Here I thought I would have to skip this week because there wasn't anything memorably funny to write about. That was until earlier today.

We were heading into the house after being out and about when I tripped on the sidewalk. I luckily caught myself since I was carrying a passed out Baby Boo, but my purse did fall and spilled its contents all over. Little Dude looked over at me and said, " Oh mommy, you have to be much more careful. The neighbor might see all your crampons!"
Thanks kid!

Unexpected 3rd Birthday Party

I LOVE throwing my kids birthday parties. I love the planning, the prep work, and the party itself. They are, however, a lot of work. I went big for my kids' 1st birthdays. Not huge, but big enough that they required a lot of time and energy (and $) from me. Check out party related posts HERE for Baby Boo's 1st birthday party. I was hoping to tone things down and do a small family only celebration this year for each kid, but Little Dude has decided that will not be the case.

I am considering getting Little Dude a balance bike for his birthday. So, last week I asked him if that sounded like something he would want. He replied, "Oh yes, I want a bike for my really big birthday party!" Until then, my mind was working under the small party model. This year, Little Dude is turning 3. With 3 come expectations that he never had previously. I don't know who told him he was having a birthday party, but he knew pretty well what he wanted; He even listed off several of his friends that he wants to be at the party.

Friday Funny - March 2, 2012

Little Dude was wading through our junk mail pile when he came upon a Vickies catalogue. Intrigued, he started flipping through the pages and looking intently at all the models.
He studied this particular page for about 30 seconds. Then, he looked up at me and said, "Oh my mommy. . . all of these ladies have eyebrows!"
"Look at all the eyebrows mommy!"

That's my boy - Ever the observant one!

Boys & Their Toys

Yesterday, Little Dude was drawing in the living room. He drew 4 smiley faces and told me that they were mommy, daddy, Baby Boo, and himself. He is getting pretty good at drawing faces, so I showed him how to draw stick people bodies on them. Once we had drawn stick bodies on all 4 faces, he had an additional request; for me to draw penises on him and daddy.
