Toddler DeTox

Well...we have entered hour 34 or so and all is well.

We had a 330-430am meltdown of sorts with everybody up trying to console a very unhappy little guy. Thankfully Mary Poppins, Pirate's Booty and a little water almost did the trick. We finally had to be the slightly bad parents I worry we are becoming and left him in his room to cry. I'm not sure how long he cried since I was out of it within a few seconds...bad mom!

Since our friends Terri and Lisa didn't have child care today he spent the entire day (from the moment I woke him and carried him to the car) playing with Jonah. The distraction was great!

He's sleeping now...and so should I...

Keep your fingers crossed

The Ears

Everyone of my siblings and my nieces and nephew have their pictures at "the ears." It is a family tradition that is now about 40? years old I think! Wow...that is a long time when I write it! Some of those pictures are happy and some...well, not so happy! Justin's pouty picture is probably my favorite! He still doesn't like to have his picture taken 25 years later!

We were in Morro Bay this week part work and part pleasure. Ian loved the beach, and the "pirate boy", but his ear experience fell somewhere between happy and not so! Funny to think my parents took one or two pictures on their instamatic cameras and then waited to develop the film to see what they would look like. (and I love those pictures) Now Ian joins that family tradition. I clicked off about 5 pictures, looked at them, and then decided we needed more. So much changes, and so much stays the same.

12 Years Ago Today...

Today is the day the Shea asked me the question that led us down this 12 year journey together! WOW...I can't believe it has been that long and at the same time it feels like we've been together forever (most of the time in the good together forever way!)

So against his will I asked him a few questions:

1. Most memorable moments -- Ian's birth, our wedding, finishing our first marathon together,

2. The days you could repeat over and over again -- the day in Puerta Vallarta and the day in Hawaii where we sat and had tuna on the beach

3. How is our marriage different today than you imagined it being -- I don't know because I don't know that I imagined how it would be

4. What did you learn about me over last 12 years -- to know when NOT to talk to you

5. Favorite gift received over the last 12 years -- watching movies all day long with me when I was sick on my birthday

6. What was the worst thing I made for you -- that orange cake thing you made for me -- that was terrible (with not a moments hesitation in his answer)

2 and 38

Yesterday Shea did the Tri For Fun at Rancho Seco. Hard to believe Pacific Grove is only 5 weeks away! We've hit the point in the season that I feel like I need more time...even though we've been training since April!

Ian got his first body markings...maybe next year his first Tri?!
