because i promised a more chipper one pronto. and i can do that genuinely, because life is good.
almost 9 months old and finally sitting up for a few minutes at a time!
other boys were about 6-6.5 months when they did this. but they were both about 10-11 months before they crawled, and this little guy is days away from being FAST.
this was a few weeks ago before his top teeth cut through. i miss those gums!
i love to capture quiet, non-forced, chilled out activities that my kids find. probably because it's not super often that i think, "wow...it's been quiet too long, better check..." and it's NOT some kind of mess. so it's such a relief to find things like these...
since this big boy COULD be going to K this week, i figure we should be more organized doing some school-ish stuff. this is not my favorite. i'd rather play. but i'm trying to do at least a page or two of stuff like this a day.
i don't toot my own horn on many things parenting...but dad gummit, i can make my kids laugh. and it's fun. i had a clothes pin on my nose saying in the squeaky weird voice that makes, "put the clothes in the bucket!" apparently it sounded funny. gus STILL says it.
btw, giving kids the chores you hate, but they love? awesome.
after a lovely turn of events, turns out my boys will get to go to mother's day out this year. today was the 1st day of school:-)
they seemed to have a great day. i got this house amazingly clean. everyone wins!
so this is gross, but it's my blog, and it's funny. so i pick up rex from his room, and he immediately says he needs to go potty. i tell him we are going home right then so let's wait...but he goes on in and apparently needs to go bad. he starts at the urinal...then i hear him say, "oh wait, i think i need to go poopoo"...and with his pants around his ankles he waddles to a stall...then he says, "oh dear lordy i think i need to go diarrhea!!"
and, well sure enough he did. but that was about the funniest thing i'd heard all day.
pretty sure they drink too much juice there.
