growing up in town:

A beautiful day demands a walk...
when i first saw the vacant lot near our home, i thought it looked sad, neglected, and a little like a wasteland.

then we got closer and I realized its a wonderland:
We spent nearly half an hour playing with the "blow-y flowers" and enjoying a warm day in a new way.

Today is 16 April 2008.

Indiana is THREE today.

his reaction?

"I DON'T WANT TO BE A BIG BOY!! I'M TWOOOOOO! (sniffle sniffle)"

It's going to be a long day at the Chuck E Cheese.

Washed and Waxed:

The new cruiser just got its first wash and wax.
It took us a couple hours, but it was fun and she looks beautiful.
Indy helped.

Take my Breath Away:

To be honest, this picture doesn't have anything to do with what i wanted to say today... i just like it.

I had to share this:
Yesterday, as Indy and I are doing the mambo together in the living room, he jumps down off his dancing perch on the coffee table, wraps his arms around my legs and tells me, "I love you, momma, you're my best girl".
Now, i don't know where he heard that, but i had the instant watery eyes and thought to myself... for all the complaining i do, for all the times he screamed until i wanted a drink, for all the piddle i wiped off the floor because he can't aim yet, yeah, its worth it.
(its not that i doubted it before, but that was one of THE MOMENTS if you know what i mean)

I drive like Oncle Nate:

Indy had a minor accident, giggles, and shouts :

"I drive like Oncle Nate!"
I nearly wet my pants.

Long Live Senor Crash!

(its an O not U in the word "Oncle" on purpose, i prefer the french spelling and pronunciation)
