A new message from the boss!

So, Jack has already made me into a blithering idiot in so many delightful ways. First of all, the baby brain in general....a gift that does not come in handy at work. He causes me to make funny faces just to try to see his little smile. You should HEAR some of the sounds that I make just to get him to laugh! Not to mention, the crazy sounds and shenanigans that Dan and I come up with to try to get him to eat his veggies. Oh yeah, it is a job to try to get him to eat his veggies...remember this post? Well, he has changed his mind about green beans, peas, carrots and any other kind of vegetable we try to send his way. I guess this is the beginning of a life long battle ( well at least the next eighteen years). Check out this video if you wanna see the battle in action. You can thank me later for sparing you the crazy sound effects that we usually try!

By the way..notice the way he keeps looking at the camera...as if it is another person in the room that might possibly sweep him up and spare him from the scary vegetable mommy.

Will You Be Mine?







I was the epitome of a first time mom on this first Valentine's Day. I found out that Ms. Kim was having a party for the kids at school and jumped at the chance to put together my first school Valentine's. I am recording this momentous occasion so that 10 years from now when I HATE putting together treats for Jack's class parties, I can reminisce about the days when I thought it was cute and fun! My genius sister gave me the idea to make goody bags with fruit snacks and juice boxes, so I got my favorite Welch's fruit snacks and the cutest tiniest juice boxes with Elmo on them. Dan helped me stuff the goody bags. I was so proud of us! Anyway, my hero, Kim, took pictures of the adorable class. They were all dressed in pink and red ( so glad I did not opt for the blue stripes that morning!) I love the Valentine she made with the picture and sent home! She said it only took 30 tries. Jack got all sorts of little cute tinkerbell and fairy valentines. His class is all girls with only one exception as you can see from the picture! Messiah gave him a blue's clue's valentine. I did not know what kind of character to get, so I got generic cat and dog valentine's from Jack. They were the 3D kind that the picture changed when they moved. Dan hated them....oh well! That is my Valentine for ya!
