Cal’s a genius

The other day we were in Target buying school supplies for Cal’s impending adventure in Kindergarten. The school supplies were in the far back corner of the store, where they set up all the seasonal items. Cal urgently told me that he had to go to the bathroom. We were as far away from the bathrooms as you can get and still be in the store. So we headed towards the front of the store where the bathrooms were, with Cal moaning and groaning the whole way. Halfway to the bathrooms he said, “Mommy, I think the poop’s going to come out of my mouth!” He said this as he hunched over and clutched his stomach, obviously in distress. I told him that was a gross thing to say. To which he replied, “Well, it’s at least backed up into my small intestine!”

He’s FOUR years old!!!

I asked him where he learned about small intestine, and he said he saw it on The Magic School Bus. The show was all about digestion.

I think he should watch more TV.

Flowers Just Because

Not doing so good with the blogging thing. Again. I’ve done about a dozen SB pages since I last posted, but oh well. So much for using this as a place to store and display my pages.

The boys brought me flowers home from Publix today. Beautiful pale peach colored roses. A dozen. Just because. Chad said it was just because he loves me. Just because he thought they were a pretty color. Just because they looked really fresh and nice today at Publix. Just because he knew I’d like them.

I’ve had girlfriends say that they didn’t want their husbands to bring them flowers. That they would rather them not waste the money on something that would just be dead in a few days. Whatever. I wholly disagree. I LOVE it when my husband (and boys) bring me flowers. Especially when it’s unexpected and Just Because.

Tonight we went to a three-year old birthday party. The boys were such a blast. They just played and enjoyed and experienced. The best part was watching all of the kids shaking their tiny booties to the “Cars” soundtrack. I am absolutely NOT biased, and my kids were the BEST dancers. They can really shake it! Must be all those impromptu dance sessions we have in the foyer all the time. So cute.

One of the party host’s neighbors commented to us as we were leaving how sweet and well-behaved our boys are. Ahhhh. Just LOVE that.
