Dear inventors of washable bath crayons, I call "bullshit"!

Yes, Bub had a wildly delightful time coloring my walls.
Yes, technically, the color washed off.
Yes, there will forever be a shadow image of this artwork.
Yes, I threw the crayons away.... and then I dug them out of the trash because he loved them so much and,  if the tub's already ruined, then wth,  right?

Please find attached invoice for $1000 for new tub and surround.

Beautiful day, partly cloudy behavior

The three Musketeers went to the HMNH this morning. I thought I did fabulously, having minimal personal meltdowns before we got in the car, and managing two tikes inside the museum.
I was feeling PRETTY COOL and with it... Until we had our picnic lunch. (Yes! I even managed to pack a lunch!)  The "Cambridge - y" family unpacked their veggies and kale chips and I served all varieties of Ritz and peanut products and Gerber melts. The small Cambridge family type asked, as Bub raced the quad, "Did I used to do things like that?" What? Aren't you 6?

Well, screw you people! My family doesn't poop rainbows and then compost it. And we like it that way. Now, where's a drive through Dunkin Donuts?

Happy Easter / birthday to you!

After a really shaky lead up with sick boys I feared that our Easter party would be a bust.  We managed to power through a day of baskets, egg hunts, travel, Motrin, family, cake, and presents.

Bub was such a good boy today. He was patient and did his best to share his party with Easter. (Family can attest that he was somewhat accusatory during lunch that we weren't eating as quickly as he wanted, but cake was on the line.) We're really proud of how far he's come in this last year. It's tough welcoming a new brother and he's done a great deal of growing up. He's a big boy now.

Cubby was so easy going that we didn't even notice he had a temperature until we got back from Grandma's. The little nugget is finally asleep after a rough evening.

Putting Bub down to sleep, I asked him what his favorite gift was,  and there was a heap to choose from.
"The duncleostious!  (the fish toy on his cake I painstakingly made him.)
I like presents from my friends."
"I'm your friend,  Bub. "
"You're my BEST friend EVER! "

The kid knows how to turn on the love. It's all worth it for a moment like that. Now I'm going to faint.

Nothing quite envigorates your Monday like preschool!

As a stay-at-home-mom, Monday morning is a beautiful thing! After having two sick kids for over a week, one home from school, I say, "Go ask someone ELSE a bazillion questions!"

A new disease. CHECK!

I don't recall that we've ever had strep throat before so I'm super excited to announce that YES!   Check that off the bucket list!

In other related news, CVS had one dinosaur toy and Bub came home with it. Poor guy. Between the penicillin, new toy and Lucky Charms he should be feeling better soon.

And the prize in the box is that Cubby's already on antibiotics for his ears. Score!

We'll bring you updates like high fevers and bouts of barfing as they develop.
