Talking to two.

I drew one and he drew one. Guess whose is whose?


"What do you want to be when you grow up, baby?"
"I like basketball."
"Then maybe you can be a basketball player when you get big."
"And daddy play basketball. And the guys play. And mine play."
"Yep."
"And put it in the hoop. Slam dunk!"
"Yep."
"Nice, guys! Nice shot!"
"Yep."
"No say 'yep' mama. Say "Jimmer number one!!!!"

Phone tales.

-Views from the road as we drove Gooda to school.

Memories in the making

B+uncle Gooda sleeping. Presh.

Things I did in the car today to keep B entertained for our 11 hour drive:
  • shovel sugar into him
  • sing to/at him
  • let him watch 17 Again a million times (the two b-ball scenes=true love)
  • promised him all sorts of goodness and rainbows if he'd just flipping be happy til we got there
 ...
"Roadtrip" has a whole meaning when you have a kid. 
I mean, it can still equal napping+music+snacking all day, but you also have to factor in crying+demands+diaper soilage. 
Umm, can I get a refund?

Spoiling my big time plans.

Toph promised to go get Pinkberry right after B went to bed. 
So of course B won't go to bed. 
He keeps yelling while pounding on his door,  "I habe bed!!" 
Two things: How did you learn the word hate and: Duh. I already know you "habe" bed.


Oh, and one more thing: Get over it. 
It's Pinkberry time.

the boy is back


My brother spent the last 2 years serving in the Russia, Samara mission (hello, we're Mormon). 
He came back Monday night & since then we've been catching up, eating Russian chocolates, & watching some of the good movies that came out over the past 2 years with him (HP7P2 finally!).
We made matching shirts & brought USA flags so he'd know we were his for reals fam+that he was back in America 
(this is everybody in my immediate family minus one. Wish you were here Lyssa!!).



Welcome home Gooda!!!
