Borderline Retarded

Birthday Gifts....

This is Spencer, the newest addition to our Duplex Lego "Thomas the Tank Engine " train set.

Here is Cranky the Crane.

Sir Toppam Hatt came with the Spencer set.

And here is the track in all its glory - about as good as Mommy can do anyway!

Our boy has spent endless hours playing very intently with this set. It's been fun watching as his imagination has grown over the past 2 years. He even uses different voices for the different trains. I hope that we can collect all the separate sets before he outgrows them! Of course, his younger brother shows some interest, but he doesn't have nearly the same focus or attention span that old baby did at that age. Especially now that new baby is learning to talk and wants to know the word for everything he sees! It makes reading a book or doing any task for that matter take 5 times longer than normal! He mostly just wants to crash all the trains, and this upsets his older brother no end.

My little boy is 4 years old. I think I'm in a little bit of shock! I can't quite believe it yet. But, like he keeps telling me, he's not a baby any more, he's a big boy now. One day, it will sink in. I'm guessing sometime around his 30th birthday.

Just to show you how deep and profound I am, last night, I had dreams about my hair.
There's some deeper philosophical meaning to this, right?

I got my eyebrows waxed again.

I think I look like a drag queen.

Best 10 minutes I've spent over the past 2 months:
Watching New Baby as he discovered the intake vent for the air condiitoner and leaned back so it could suck his hair through the grate. He would pull back and pat his head, then stick his head back up there again and again. It was too cute!

Funniest thing I've heard this week (made me do a spit-take):
"I put my fist in your mermaid!"

We were at a sushi place, and one of the rolls was called a "mermaid roll". Maria did, in fact, stick her fist in Keri's mermaid.

It's been a very good week at work. For the first time in almost three months, I am caught up. Plus, I got a nice raise yesterday of $100 per week. Yay me! I celebrated by buying a new purse at Target for $20.00. It's the little things.

I am looking forward to tomorrow. My friend Wren and I are going to see the new "Harry Potter" movie. I frickin LOVE going to the movies. I was able to finish the final book in the Harry Potter series on Wednesday. I was very satisfied - I thought it was extremely well done. I would have finished it sooner, but it's hard to concentrate on reading when you have 79 pounds of children and cat climbing into your lap non-stop.

Next on the list will be Old Baby's 4th birthday. 4th, ALREADY!! I can barely believe it!
