We had our first clothing tantrum this week. When D put on his snazzy new car shirt he was very excited, he figured nothing goes better with a car shirt than car pants, right? Lightning. McQueen. Pajama. Car Pants. I compromised by letting him hold the pants while we put on his jeans, he was still dissatisfied but dealt. Just a small dose of what I dished out to my mom for 5+ years arguing every morning to wear my leotards and tights to school . . . I might be the only second grader you know who repeatedly had the teacher telling them to put their clothes back on, as I would casually unbutton my denim shirt to reveal the swimsuit I snuck under my agreed upon clothes. I remember my mom leaving explicit instructions for my grandmother when she went out of town, stating she was not to allow me to wear spandex to school . . . . yup I snuck it, poor grandma. . . poor mama. Anyways, this morning after I got D dressed in his red Skinny pants he went running into the other room and returned saying “booz booz booz!!!!” no folks, he wasn’t asking for a mimosa, he was carrying his red emus featured in our first vêtu, booz is toddler talk for boots. I thought about trying to convince him to wear his cons as I feared the red on red would be a bit much, but it turned out pretty cute. I always told myself I would let him wear whatever he wants, not sure he’ll win the pajama pant argument too frequently but I’m sure I have many a negotiations in my future. After we were fully dressed we headed out to our favorite neighborhood park, and the rest is history . . .
I do not understand how anybody has time to keep up a blog . . . maybe time management has something to do with it, because I know the ones I follow are moms, moms with like 4 kids. I only have one and I have no. time. for. this. But I’m not giving up, somehow its already the middle of November it’s F1 in Austin, then it’s Thanksgiving, then I’m setting up a pop up shop (in addition to my two stores) then family is coming in for D’s 2nd Birthday, which means there’s a party to plan, then there are Holiday events like parades and strolls, then there’s another pop up shop, then it’s Christmas, and then I breathe. So who knows what will be posted on here between now and the new year but I’m excited for all that is happening in my life. Doiron is starting to talk (finally) with Ca! for every car he sees and Bubee! for every baby he sees and Moo! with a finger to the sky every time we walk outside, day or night. Maybe even cuter than his words is the excitement that he has for his own identification of things, I remember when his little buddy Luke, just one month younger than D, started these words it seemed like it snowballed into more and more words and now he’s repeating everything he hears, it feels like one day I’m going to wake up and have a talking kid, I can’t wait. But I will wait because time keeps slipping away from me, I feel lazy and unproductive, so I’m doing something about it, I think, wish me luck. For starters here are some photos from our quick trip to see Bryan’s family over Halloween, it was a blast and a blur, too fast and so. exhausting. We miss these peeps like crazy and absorb every minute we can with them, one of our highlights was bringing D to Disneyland for the first time . . .you should have seen this kid with Mickey, he pretty much wanted to take him home with him . . . the photographer had to ask us to get our kid off of him, so here are our pics from the trip. Thanks for tuning in folks. Souhait sur une étoile!
The problem with loving this time of year is how quickly it passes by! I picked my nephew Michael, or should I say Mike, up from school the other day and took the boys to a local pumpkin patch. We got some great photos before I ran out of memory on the camera, someday I will have my very own beautiful DSLR camera . . . but for now I picked up a great film camera for only 30 bucks at a store I’ve fallen in love with, Steph’s Stuff. In other news, Doiron went on an audition for a huggies commercial after being scouted in a coffee shop, he had a call back, but unfortunately they want the whole family, so I don’t think we’ll be getting the gig . . . but it was a crazy experience to have none the less! Doiron and I shared a cold over the weekend, both are on the mend and SOOOOO ready for our trip to California, Doiron will finally get to meet Auntie Ambi and Pammy!!!!!! Followed by lots o love from the coastal grandparents. For now, here are some Pumpkin Pics to ooo and aww over . . .
