Lest you think it's all hugs and kisses over here



We experienced a Chernoble meltdown at Target because I wouldn't buy the baby fire truck.   It was horrifying.   I was just trying to get out of there as fast as possible when I got to the registers and saw a dozen carts log jammed across the whole front of the store because only 2 lanes were open.

This is crisis time,  people!   Move!  Move!  Move!

I'm not ashamed to admit that when back up arrived,  I ran down a little old lady and a guy buying one item to check out first.

Vitamin W and intravenous Hagen Das are on clean up tonight.


Liam, what's your favorite thing in the whole world?

"YOU!!"

I was expecting "dinosaurs" or "trucks" or even "candy", so this was a delight.

**Reminder to self: Think of this moment while gritting teeth and bemoaning the lack of privacy I've been afforded in the bathroom for the past three years.**

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! (close, Bub)

This post is a bit delayed because uploading pictures to the computer has become a Herculean chore for some reason.

On Memorial Day, we made a special cake for desert that Bub helped to decorate.  He requested candles, so I thought, what the heck!  With his own birthday not far behind him, followed by Mother's Day, Bub decided that it was some combination of the two.  So, we sang, "Happy Birthday"!  At the end, he chirped, "Happy Mother's Day!!!"

I think I deserve two days anyway.

There should be a laugh track.


We had two pee "incidents" today.  Well,  our rugs did.   The last was at the dinner table.   And I wasn't really that phased.

Mama! Where's Mama!?


It's not a joke.  He asked me.

What do you want to be when you grow up?


I asked Liam what job he'd like to have as a grown up.  Yesterday,  it was house painter specializing in dark blue houses.  Today,  he wants to be a teacher.

Doctor! I did poop in the potty!


This is how Liam addressed the nurse who was weighing him IN THE HALLWAY by the nurses station (with 5 witnesses) at the start of his 3 year well visit.

Ah,  I love this kid!

We're very into volcanoes!



A strato volcano out of Legos.

How come Daddy took your toy away??


In this house,  when Bub is naughty,  he and/or his toy gets a time out.   This morning,  I noticed that Liam's crane truck was tucked up on a high shelf.

Bub,  how come Daddy took your crane away?

I was being naughty.

What did you do??

I did a WHOLE BUNCH of things!

The Bub Gets Cookin' or "Lemonade Wars"

You know your child had an amazing day when


you look into the back seat of the car and you see that he's passed out,  wearing only a t-shirt and diaper,  clutching a coconut donut**,  crumbs and sand liberally coating his chubby legs,  and he's snoring.

We had a wonderful trip to the beach today.  We drove down to Narragansett and it actually took a normal amount of time to get there instead of the 2.5 times as long as a journey often takes.  AND we scored and found a Mary Lou's Coffee! 



Bub and Daddy break ground on a building for the Spinosaurus to stomp.  (Of course he came to the beach with us.)


Here's Daddy getting soaked in a flash flood.  Construction is not for the faint of heart or those with smart phones in their cargo pockets.


I show Bub how to make a rock cairn.


Dump truck destroys rock cairn.





**And "Yes, donuts are my parenting solution to any situation these days."

A Saturday Tradition




Yard sales and Dunkin Donuts with my favorite little man.  We scored a new kitty,  "Binks ".

**CORRECTION ** Meet "Risso"!  Stay tuned as this cat seems destined to be renamed several more times.

I'm a Little Mama!


Liam loves to pretend to be me.   It's just the sweetest thing. 

He wants to drink the juice I drink,  wear my slippers,  push the shopping cart and be a part of every conversation.

I really get a kick out it when he climbs into my chair at the vanity and uses all the "Mama Tools " (makeup brushes). 

"Look! I'm a Little Mama! "

I'm sorry Teenage Liam,  but you do look really adorable trying to use an eye lash curler so please forgive this Big Mama.

Overheard in the bathtub


"The T-Rex says the boat should go away!  He says this 'madly'. "

Mother's Day

Thank you to my two wonderful men for making me a Mama!


Sunday, we enjoyed a trip to Tower Hill Botanical Gardens.




Little boys always manage to find rocks and dirt to play with no matter where they go.



And this guy can always make me smile!


This one, too!


Learning about birds,



and bees. . . not THAT conversation.


And, because no post would be complete without a gratuitous dinosaur shot or two, here is Liam bathing a dinosaur while sharing some "dinosaur juice".  Consequently, I was able to shower AND dry my hair!





Round 2, even more cake

It was as true in the Cretaceous as it is today.


Always take the time to look for a second T-Rex.

Liam sleeps with two large,  pointy beasts.  One was visible,  his claws poking through the mesh bed gate.  The second one was clutched between his arm and belly,  tucked in under his Lovie. 

Why do I have a feeling I'll be posting about dinosaurs for a long time?

What to do when your child starts to sleep with increasingly vicious toys

3. That's the magic number! Yes it is. It's the magic number!

Happy Birthday, Bub!


We had a pre-breakfast-gift-fantastica at the Wrona household.  Bub got to open a bunch of gifts and I must say, the kid made out!  Thank you to everyone for being so generous!!

Liam checking things out through his Din-oc-ulars


Then we had some birthday breakfast which he did not eat a bite of.  It's possible that he was suffering the effects of his birthday boogers or he may just enjoying seeing me go to a lot of effort for naught.  Either way, he liked blowing out candles.


Sunshine is possibly the best gift he's received so far.  We played in the yard and dug up some birthday worms.


For those of you keeping score at home, Liam weighs 38.4 lbs and is 38.5" tall!!  What a big boy!


 Seen here licking birthday frosting and eating birthday Popsicle.  You may note that yesterday was a three outfit day!  Birthdays are messy.




We had a stegosaurus cake and more gifts after dinner.



All of his nearest and dearest were at the head table.


At 8:05pm we all remembered where we were three years ago.


How time has flown by!!!

Your "goodie bag" is this sequence of Liam's dinosaurs before



and after being stomped by a vicious T-Rex.

"Cherries for EVERYONE!"



FACT: Dinosaurs love dried cherries and Golden Grahams.
