We went through 13 pairs of big-boy underpants today (have I mentioned that underpants is my favorite word in the English language - just say it with me - UNDERPANTS!) And honestly, could there possibly be anything cuter?
But that was it.
Thank god our carpet is already crap. This is going to be a FUN FUN week for me. I feel like the world's most annoyingly chirpy (but encouraging!) nag.
In other news, neither Dave nor myself can remember a weekend during which we had more fun (or for that matter, spent more money). Friday afternoon we met Jamie and Joe at the park where the kids ran around in the little water-play area for hours while we attempted to chat about something other than them (husbands are always fun to
complain about discuss!) It was only after I returned home that I had my epiphany about the farmer-mom tan. I look ridiculous. But in a good way.
Dave and I ate out several times (a day), saw Star Wars (which once you add on babysitting was an 'ouch' of an expense at $50, but totally worth every cent just to see the creepy nerd chick in front of us with the "Sith Lords Kick Ass" t-shirt). We made brunch for my sibs before Uncle Dan-Dan left for the next leg of his wacky world tour (I have one word about that brunch - KRUSTEAZ - thankyouverymuch) and got some fun video of Audrey ("odd-gy") playing Ukelele ("ku-le-le") while the boy danced (which is really more like hyperactive jumping) around our living room.
Sunday night we had a mini-party with our closest friends. I've learned now that there is a perfectly inverse relationship between the quantity of alcohol I ingest and the number of photos I take. So naturally, since Joe's dad, Adeeb, was the bartender, I have no photos to post from the party whatsoever. I did manage to film a few minutes of video, but I'm not quite nerdly enough to figure out how to make them viewable to the larger public. I'll have to see Star Wars a few more times to aspire to that level of geekiness. Don't laugh - it could happen!
Wish me luck for Day #2. Which will hopefully involve some successful #1's.
