Oh, Hillary...

Grossly inappropriate but I'm sorry, I always - categorically, without exception - find potty humor funny.

Bye-bye, baby...

Seriously - how old does he look in this picture? Not 3, that's for sure. I am not even sure he looks 4.

I see so much of Nate in this picture...

Happy Birthday Josh

At some point I will put something a little more thought-out here. For now, I'll just say that Josh turned 3 and is COMPLETELY aware that he's older. He has been very puffed-up and self-important all day.

Oh, and we bought him the Wiggles "Getting Strong" DVD for his birthday, so he's WAY pumped up about that.

Lessons in lunacy

Me: Why did you do that?
Josh: Because I'm crazy!
Me: You're crazy? Who made you crazy?
Josh: God did.
Me: God made you crazy?
Josh: Yeah, and Jesus made me crazy too.
Me: Why did God and Jesus make you crazy?
Josh: Because I was boring!

What in the world?

Today at school, Josh's class made handprint turkeys. He loved it, and wanted to make more when we got home. Ok, no problem. A little Tempera never hurt anyone, right?

So I set him up at the table and for over an hour, he painted his hand and put handprints on construction paper. Messy, but washable, and entertaining. So whatever - I can live with that combination.

But after I answered the phone int he other room, he decided to paint, umm, what's the word? Oh I know - EVERYTHING. I walked back in and his entire left side was covered with red paint.

Somehow, in a 3 year old brain, I guess if a little Tempera is that much fun, then a lot of Tempera must just be awesome beyond belief.

Check me out...

I've succumbed to peer pressure and finally started using Flickr. I've unloaded a ton of pics from the past few months. Check my Flickr account to see them all.

Many many months to go...and the organizational possibilities are completely overwhelming. For now, pardon the chaos.

My all-time favorite

Of all the pics we've taken of Josh over the almost-3 years he's been around, this is still my all-time favorite. I'm sorry, the cheeks are just fantastic.

Wiggly adventure

So going to see the Wiggles in TO may have been the most exciting thing J has ever done. It seems, however, that we have spun into total out-of-control Wigglemania. Full-blown. For the last day or 2, Josh corrects me every time I call him Josh - he now is to be referred to only as Sam Wiggle. And it's always in the 3rd person: Mom, Sam is waving at you. Sam wants a drink of water. Sam isn't going to take a nap.

Me? No longer mom - I'm now Murray. And I was told again that I can't sing, so this is a good gig for me - sit back in silence and play the 3/4-sized guitar. Although once in a while I get told I'm not doing it right, and His Highness takes the guitar away from me too. And then I just get to be in the audience.

If you didn't catch the Wiggles while they were in the D, let me know. I'm sure Sam would be happy to give you a private viewing. Concerts daily at 7:00, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12...

Out of the mouths of babes...

A few bizarre conversations we've had recently:

While looking at a Wiggles cassette tape insert: Mom, you should read this. It's very unusual.
When I called his school friend Fudgie instead of Fudge: Actually, his name is Fudge. You should really try to remember that.
To his teacher yesterday: My mom had to cut my hair because it was really getting all crazy.
About birthday gifts: I need drums because I'm very talented. You can't sing so you can just play guitar.
Mission critical: We need a stage at home as soon as possible so I can perform. And I really really really need drums. Okay?
