Say What You Mean

I had a hilarous 'laugh out loud' moment with Shayden yesterday that I had to jot down on here so someday I can remember it.

We were playing (I was cleaning up) in the basement/play room and I was working on picking up all the boys' matchbox cars.  Shayden was about 8 feet away and near the bucket they are kept in so I asked him to do me a favor and "toss me the bucket for the cars".  
He registered the request on his face, looked at me and then flung the bucket in my direction!   I was shocked and almost pulled a bad mom move but thankfully my response was, 'hey buddy, why did you do that?'.  
Plain and simple was the reply..."you asked me to toss it to you".
Yes, Yes I did.

Quinton's Room Makeover

If I start this post honestly, I would have to tell you that I need to take a break (after only entering the title) to go wipe Shayden's bottom for his second potty break during nap time...can someone say 'milking it'!

Ok, here we go...Quinton's room!
I can honestly say I have had a total blast getting to decorate Q's room.  There is just something about doing a nursery that makes you feel all warm inside.  It was particularly fun because while not too many changes were made, kept bedding, kept furniture, etc., great things were added and the painting of the room brought it all together.

Here is before we moved in:

And after:

While I still have a few things I want to put on the wall, it is definitely a little boys nursery and we love it.

Now on to Shayden's.

Theater First

Shayden and Quinton made their first visit to the Theater today when we were invited to attend "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" at the Riffe Theater in downtown Columbus.

I am happy to report it was a total success.  I knew Shayden was going to enjoy it but I wasn't so sure I could keep Quinton quite for the entire performance.  He did great - laughed at funny moments, clapped when everyone else did and sat on my lap like a champ for the entire 45 minutes.  

The only downer - my minor ticket for paying only the partial fee in the parking lot slot.  Its all about choices and mommy made a poor choice.  HAVE CASH ON HAND MOMMY!!!

All in all a wonderful morning and a great first time experience for both boys!

Thank you to my sis Kristen and her gaggle for sharing this fun event with us.
