heard in my house yesterday:
Josh: Wanna know something weird? My knee-pit stinks!
we are so proud. mostly because he actually used a sentence.
as opposed to when we were at the superstore yesterday…when he grabbed his ass and said “poo!” all caveman-like again….
[my gawd, have you seen their new Joe clothes for kids?? to. die. for. i bought these for Emily for, like $10
holy cuteness Batman! i want a pair for myself!]
anyway, it was my turn to take him to the bathroom, which, of course, is upstairs, so we have to run up there and he locks himself into the bathroom because “no help!” (see…caveman) why is it that no matter where i am with my son, he needs to use the bathroom at the most inopportune, inappropriate place?? also…what the hell is it about boys/men that makes it necessary for them to spend thirty minutes on the toilet? i swear, we were in that bathroom for 45 minutes.
the rest of the day was productive. we went to Vaughan Mills and bought fall shoes. Jesus, we bought a shiteload of shoes. also, my poor Isabella…she was wearing a size 5 and measured at a 7 1/2. (yes, yes, worst parent of the world goes to me…but, to be fair, her size 5s were bought for her in JUNE. it’s not really my fault that she’s a beast and grows like a weed. i’m not used to weeds. Emily and Josh don’t grow. Josh’s feet are STILL a size 10.)Ã‚Â We also checked out the new Aeropostale and scored ourselves some free t-shirts. brilliant marketing campaign, i tell you. because i’ll be back – - – any store that gives me free clothes deserves my business.
and then had friends for a bbq. and there were only TWO vomiting incidents. yes, TWO. and, as we all know, there’s only one thing i enjoy more than my own kid puking hot dog….yep, you guessed it, someone else’s kid vomiting hot dog. it was good times, i tell you, good times. Actually, besides those two incidents, it was really fun.
we’re off to Tim Horton’s and Wonderland for our typical holiday monday. and any day that starts with coffee and a donut is good with me (i guess i really am Canadian!) now i just have to figure out to get the winter fleece sleeper off my kid…she decided she NEEDED to put it on on top of her clothing.
(see…you can kind of see spider-bella’s purple t-shirt poking out from behind the ‘sleepah’…crazy kid.)
and i have to figure out how to get my caveman to stop saying, “computer? computer?” dude, i love holiday mondays…
