Random, Part 3

Okay, this week has gone way too fast. I'm not complaining - it means the weekend is almost here - but I'm looking back at the past few days and realizing how little I actually accomplished. I haven't posted pictures of Benen's birthday (they're still in my camera) and I'm sitting here at 12:15 a.m. blogging when I should be making lunches for school. Oh, well. So, because this is going to be quick, it's going to be random.

*My baby's progression of disgusting habits (in order):
1. Eating off the floor - because food tastes better when he has to race the Swiffer Vac.
2. Eating off the ground - because dirt has minerals.
3. Playing in the toilet - because it's just a tiny splash pool.
4. Discovering the garbage can - because it's a trove of hidden treasures.

*Since my son discovered the wonders of the garbage can, I have had to rescue my Chapstick (the lid was on), a pair of Connor's jeans, Benen's underwear and Kolten socks. And all in two days. I'm not sure yet what is missing. I've also found him happily munching on scraped-off-the-plate macaroni. Blech.

*The other day, Benen stood on the toilet lid and watched me take out my contact lenses. He had a look of complete awe on his face as he watched me slowly pry the sheer film off my eye. "Whoa," he said. I milked it.

"Yup. Dad may be able to flip his eyelids inside out, but I can take out my lenses!"

He looked at me with complete hero worship and adoration shining from his eyes. Yes!

*A girlfriend and I once ate an entire (small) cheesecake. Nothing says "friendship" like shared gluttony without judgement.

Alright, I really need to get to bed and there are still lunches to make. 'Night.

Okay. I almost didn't make it past the macaroni. Blech is an understatement! LOL

I'm not beyond halving a pie with a friend either! ;o)

Kids...ya gotta love 'em! Really watch him with the garbage. I, too, have been experiencing missing objects...things I didn't think to look for there until I noticed his fascination with taking things to the trash. I think he enjoys it so much because we praise him for carrying his own diapers there.

Hey, I can do the flipped-eyelid trick, too! ;o)

Daisy, you're a kindred spirit. In my opinion, a pie cuts nicely in two. ;-) Yeah, the macaroni made my stomach heave.

Becky, I've never understood how someone can do that. It makes my insides quiver to look at it, tee-hee. So far today, Kolten has handed me my favorite pair of ear rings and two Chap Sticks. I haven't checked the garbage yet. LOL!

Jenster, yeah they crack me, too. I'm a cracked nut. LOL! ;-)

I don't see pet food. Are they eating out of the pet bowls yet?
