So, it's my Brag, I mean Blog, and I'll post what I want to.

Words L. has used appropriately:

familiar (as in, "That looks familiar to me.")
surface (while smoothing the sand at the playground, "to make a flat surface.")
predator (reading a book about ducks: the mother duck will hide her babies from enemies. "L, do you know what enemies are?" "They're other animals that would want to hurt you, ya know, like predators.")
dissertation ("Daddy has to work on his dissertation.")
realize ("I'm going to realize my full potential." Hee-hee, just kidding. More like, "I didn't realize that...")

Vocabulary SAT, my kid's gonna kick your trash. (I'm so eloquent, he must get it from me.)

But he's still my baby:

"Mommy did you buy night-night underwear at the store?"
"Did you forgot?"

I love how he still calls McDonald's, Mickle-Donald's, too.
These pictures were taken back in December. L & P (They sound like a utilities company) wrestling. P. in the tub. L & P with our good friends' baby girl, J.

White flour is the devil.

Taken from a note I just sent my sister-in-law:

"I've been an emotional wreck for a good two weeks. I even bought a package (large) of Oreos. I think Brandon's had 2 and yet, 2/3 of the package is missing. Huh."

Oh, and I forgot to mention that in that same shopping trip, I bought Ritz crackers.

The world as our family knows it is coming to an end.

Or at least, we're probably moving soon and my subconscious thinks I'll stay put in my comfort zone if I'm too fat to move...literally.

On the bright side, today was my turn to teach preschool. We learned about birds. They thumbed through picture books to answer questions about birds while I illustrated and sounded out their responses...Ooooo, letter-sound recognition on the sly! We read a book that introduced us to several kinds of birds and we imitated their songs. We made birdfeeders w/ pinecones, peanut butter, and birdseed. Then we went on a "nest hunt" and walked to a tree with a nest in it. Then we played at a nearby park. Finally, we walked home for snacks (cough-Ritz crackers and cheese-cough) and stories.
