I like to think of myself as a smart (s-m-a-t) girl, but there is just a connection that I'm not getting. Every time I eat something with gluten in it, I spend an extended length of time in the bathroom, visiting my friend "el throno". No gluten? No getting sick.

So I go gluten free for a few days. I get to feeling really good.

And then I cheat. I alternate between having just a little gluten (a bite of a cookie won't hurt me, right?) and a lot (a whole pizza won't hurt me, right?) with the same results.

Have a learned my lesson? Kind of. Pizza, not worth getting sick over. The Belgian waffle roll dipped in chocolate, smothered with whipped cream and sprinkles I had at the State Fair today, totally worth getting sick for.

Hold me back....

I've discovered Facebook. Do I have time to get into MySpace to?

In a van down by the river....

We went to visit the Mighty Mississippi a couple weeks ago on the way to my aunts house. Baba started screaming, "Baba get out car now. Baba want to walk!" And since he has mastered the doors in Mom's car we took his threats seriously and stopped the car at a park.

Zippy would have been perfectly content viewing the river from afar. Baba and I wanted to get up close and personal with the river (and on the climb up I almost stepped on the dead fish that we had been discussing the smell of since we climbed down the bank to the river).

Baba wasn't content to just look at the river. We had to draw in the sand. Guess what we drew? What's that you say, tractors and wagons? Ding, ding, ding. You are the winner. Baba's tractors and wagons look more like squiggly lines to me, but I'll let it slide. He is only 29 months.

Ever since we moved to Baba's new house by the pond, Baba has been obsessed with fishing (it fits right in between his obsession with going to Ma and Pa's house, tractors, and trucks). So, Baba found a stick by the river and proceeded to "fish". We caught no fish.

The highlight of the journey down to the river (besides the dead fish, of course). Was the airplane that Baba spotted. I'm still not sure how he saw it. I believe the plane was a couple feet below orbit.

Zippy: You know, I've had a lot of fun with you since we dropped the boy off at your parents.

Me: You sound surprised.

Zippy: Yeah, I am. I mean, I just wanted to tell you that.

Its nice to know after almost four years of marriage (and eight years of being together) he is still surprised that he has fun with me.

Too Young?

Baba's tractor, bob-cat, and combine have been very dirty lately so have had to join Baba in the bath. Last night, Baba wanted me to put water in the lift of his tractor. I told him that water was a liquid thus would run where ever it could and he would need to put a solid in the lift.

We discussed the differences between liquids and solids for a while until I notice Zippy standing in the doorway smirking at me. He asked me if I thought Baba was a little young to understand liquids and solids. I said, "No, that's why I'm saving gas and plasma until he is three."
