A Few Words of Warning for All You 2-Year-Old's out There

1). This is what you might look like if you try to climb out of your crib (or playpen..don't judge) before your mom comes to get you in the morning.

2). Go ahead and let your mom take you to the Emergency Room with only a diaper on. That way you can take home an awesome new hospital gown and add it to your wardrobe.

3). Although you might think breaking an elbow (who knew you could break your elbow?) fun, it does have its disadvantages.

4). Definitely make sure you fight for the black cast, because we all know black is tough. You might want to think about pairing it with a red wrist band.

5). Your mom and dad don't want you to know this, but you will look pretty darn cute in a cast-- but don't get any crazy ideas or anything.

Now get off the computer so your mom can leave me a really nice comment!

Today is Ian's preschool Valentine's Party. I'm a little worried.

A few months back, one of the other moms stopped and asked if I was Ian's mom. I answered in the affirmative-- albeit, a little nervous but figured I better claim him.

She said her little girl Sasha (name has been changed to protect the not-so innocent) had a major crush on Ian. This came as no surprise to me, I mean, what 4-year-old girl wouldn't love this face?

The mom said Sasha couldn't stop talking about him and how cute he was. And I guess Sasha's older brother got glasses and she told her mom, "You know who would look good in glasses, Mom? Ian would."

I thought that was pretty funny and got a good chuckle out of it until a couple months later, Ian's teacher asked if I could stay after class and talk to her about an "incident" involving Sasha.

Apparently there was a little Sleeping Beauty game going on...Ian taking the role of the sleeper and Sasha, the kissing wake-up call.

Who does that little girl think she is, making the moves on my sweet little boy?

I passed Sasha's mom on the way out and told her what the teacher had said. I guess Sasha had been saying for about a week that she was going to kiss Ian, even after being told repeatedly by her mom not to.

What? Premeditated even?! Girls these days!

She told her mom, "I'm definitely going to kiss Ian now, since he got a haircut." Ha! You better believe I'm going to think twice before cutting his locks again!

So you can see why I might be a little nervous today, right? What, with the love celebration going on his classroom and all. Ian did tell me he told Sasha he can't kiss any girls besides his mom until he's older, but I wouldn't put one past that girl.

My Matching Tie Boys

Too bad you all don't go to church with me. You missed out on some pretty cute kids.

Aren't their ties great? My friend Ashley has the hook-ups.

You can check 'em out at

Although, I don't mean to lead any of you astray-- there's no guarantee your kids will look as cute as mine in the ties. Sorry, that's just the way it goes!

Confession Thursday

I've got a few things I need to get off my chest. The guilt is killing me.

1). I have not seen Avatar. For reals-- I'm not lying. I think it's a James Cameron thing. I never saw Titanic either.

2). Last week was the first time since December 25th that my kitchen table has been cleared off and completely Lego-free. I was so shocked, I took a picture. See?

3). The other day I ate only No-Bake Cookies for lunch and dinner.

4). Sometimes I like to dress Carter in unmatched clothes, purely for my own entertainment. See?

Phew, I feel better. Thanks for letting me clear my conscience a little. Hopefully I didn't shock any of you too much and we can still be friends?
