Baba gets his wish granted

As most of you know, Baba has been lobbying for another sister since we brought Rudy home from the hospital.

Its kind of hard to see, but Josh is looking at our stick figure family on the window of the Jeep. This morning I sneaked out and added a baby picture. We ran errands and he just wouldn't noticed so as soon as Zippy got home from work we headed out with the camera. Baba is so EXCITED!

If Baba had a million dollars

Zippy and I took Baba to the Saints game last Saturday night. On the way to the game, we stopped at a gas station to get a lottery ticket (the powerball was up to $200 million - I could get a lot of pedi's for $200 million). Baba asked what a lottery ticket was (we buy them all the time, can't you tell?) and I told him its a game for big people - you give the game a dollar, you pick 6 numbers (I think, again, we don't do this often) and if you match all the numbers you win a lot of money. I asked him what he would do if we won the lottery.

He thought for half a second and said, "Take my sister shoe shopping."

I love that kid.

I solved the mystery of the missing grapes.....

I guess I should be proud - they worked together, without fighting, to solve a problem - how to get to the grapes I had just washed in the sink.

Its quiet, too quiet.....

There is nothing worse than quiet kids. Quiet kids are ALWAYS up to no good. My kids were quiet so I went to investigate.

Who, who?

Call me a bad mom, but my children do not listen to kids music. Baba may go to kindergarten not knowing that if he is happy and he knows it he should clap his hands, but at least he'll be able to sing "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "Is you is, or is you ain't my baby" among others.

Rudy is at the point where she is repeating or attempting to repeat EVERYTHING we say. She also tries to do everything her big brother does. Lately, Baba has been into "Who let the dogs out?" and jazz music.

Harry Potter Brushes His Teeth

I was getting dressed one morning and returned to the bathroom to find this:
I've got to remember to close the loopholes! I said, "Brush your teeth." I forgot to add, "Don't empty out my drawer and wear my headbands as belts. Please do not add accessories to these belts. Please do not act surprised when I am less than pleased that you took EVERYTHING out of my drawer."
