Wonder Man

We all went to Knoebels this weekend with my mom and sister.   Which is a great place for families.  There is no parking fees, no entrance fees and you can either purchase an all day wrist band or individual tickets.  Wonder Baby just hung out in the  stroller most of the day.  But Wonder Boy had fun, I think.  Although he has the body of a 3 or some 4 year old (over 3 feet tall and 33 pounds) he is only 2 years old (and 5 months).  He was able to go on a lot more rides than what he was ready for.  Wonder Man on the other hand was a grumpy lump.  He doesn’t do a lot of rides and the ones he does do he didn’t want to go on either.  (more…)

We were talking about getting something to stop before it goes too far and my husband said we need to “Nip it in the butt”.  WHAT???  You know, like a dog chasing after a post man and he’s nipping him in the butt.

I just shook my head and rolled my eyes.

Me: “No honey it’s Nip it in the bud.”
Him: “Why would it be that?”
M: “Because it’s like nipping a weed in the bud stage before it gets too big.”
H: “Oh, I thought it was like when a dog chased a post man and he was nipping at his butt.”
M: “Why?  How does that mean anything?”
H” “I don’t know, that’s what I thought people were saying all these years.”
M: “Well, it’s Nip it in the bud not butt.”

And to think, he really is a smart man, but sometimes come up with real doozies!

Some pics that I thought were cute and wanted to share.

A walk in the park.

My oldest trying to make a funny face.

My youngest hanging out in the car seat at the park.

Today when I told him who his father really is.

I’m kidding!! I was trying to make him smile and when the camera’s first flash went off, this is the face he gave me! To think the last two pics are only a week apart.

So my birthday and Christmas (which I celebrate) are only 9 days apart.  It has always been a bit harder time for me since my birthday gets over looked; which is an understatement.  I really have had crappy birthdays, no really. Well you asked for it, here comes the stories. . . .


*A picture to come soon!* So Wonder Man’s dad called up and offered up a couch. Barely used and a recliner on both ends. The colors match our living room colors so Wonder Man said we’d take it.
