I am a wild and craaazy guy!

My kid is a wild and crazy guy.  He has now figured out how to run.  Yesterday he was playing in the sunroom, aka toy room, and I was being a bad mommy and catching up on my TV queue.  All of a sudden, the LM comes tearing out of the sun room screaming la, la, la at the top of his lungs.  He takes a lap past me, into the kitchen, around the island, backtracks to include the kitchen table and then goes back into the sun room to continue playing.  It cracked me up.  He would repeat this behavior every 10 minutes or so.  He totally reminded me of one of my all time favorite comedians... Steve Martin.
I used to have a poster of him on my wall that said "Best Fishes"- he had a fish in his jacket pocket.  The man is a genius and  for those of you who are current movie fans or who are not current movie fans, perhaps you don't know or remember him as a stand up or on SNL.  The man is just about as funny as it gets.

Oh, and those of you who hang your head and shame about Glee! Lift them up high.  It is already to have some harmless fun and some snarky Sue fun!

Shoes, teeth and ears- an update

New shoes again for LM.   Apparently I am a bad Mommy because I tried to shove my kids foot into shoes that are already a size too small.... it seems like we just bought them!

Teeth- well LM has worked sooo hard to get the four teeth that he has in and last night in a single SPLAT, he almost lost 'em.  He face planted on the hardwood floors in the kitchen.  Blood was all over!  By the time we had him cleaned up and had taken assessment of the damage, he had a bloody nose, a split lip, two loose front teeth and a cut in his gum.  He did figure out that ice cream makes EVERYTHING feel better !  He was still feeling the bruises this am from his fall.  But the teeth are still in!  Hopefully he didn't bang them on the playground equipment at daycare today.

Ears- nothing to say except they looked like bunny ears for a few days over Easter and now they are fine.  I am hopeful that we won't have any ear infections for the rest of the spring/summer (knock on wood).

oh and before I forget.... Glee!!!!

Tennis Sunday

What a beautiful day for tennis!  My partner managed to pull it out in 3 sets, but we won!!!! 
It was a great weekend.  We took the LM to G-Day on Saturday.  He did great!  We were a bit anxious about how he would do with all of the crowds and the noise.  We sat up high in the shade and where we wouldn't bother anyone if he had a melt down.  As it was, he happily climbed on the seat, flirted with a co-workers little girl, stole a few kisses, and clapped when everyone around him clapped.  In fact, that was the high light of his day- clapping.  I think that he thought that everyone was clapping at him!

As for Daddy and me, the best part was that we were able to carry him across campus in a backpack so our backs were not hurting at the end of the day from carrying him in our arms!

It has been a great weekend!
