Henry and the Three Bears

Henry has taken to sitting in his toy tote in his room. Tonight he climbed in and looked around for his "friends". All of the teddy bears went in, it was Henry and the Three Bears. Apparently it was a little crowded, so one by one they were evaluated and thrown out. However, Henry then got lonely and let them back in.

It makes me wonder what goes through his little head sometimes.

Pumping Iron

Now that vacuuming before dusting has been determined as the correct order, a bigger challenge has cropped up. When do you iron...before the clothes dry or after? My mom always ironed the same day as the laundry, so before the clothes was totally dry. I have always done it the next day (or sometime after) so the clothes is dry.

After Henry was born I only ironed clothes as necessary. Before I went back to work I figured I should take care of the lines of laundry that were still hanging in the basement. I think it took about 3 hours to get through it all. It was about 3 months worth of laundry so I guess it balances out. Scott felt like he had a closet of brand new clothes.

I have been trying to keep up on it a little better since then, but it still has a way of getting out of hand. I'm not sure why though, tonight I did all that was in the basement, and it was only 6 items, completely do-able. So why then do I end up with lines of wrinkly clothes?

It leads me to think that if I ironed right before hanging it up to dry it would be less intimidating.

I even have a brand new iron. My iron from college finally bit the dust. Don't get me wrong, it is still sitting next to the new one. If that doesn't make me want to iron I don't know what will.

The Sleepover

Last night Levi stayed with us while Matt and Olivia went away for their 5th Anniversary. We had a great night playing, going to the mall, and just trying to "contain" ourselves!

He's Mine Too

I took this picture because Henry was happily riding in the new Hip Hammock I bought. (He was having fun, I think that the flash just stunned him.) Anyways, when I loaded the picture onto the computer, I finally saw that for a moment there was a slight resemblance. So many people say that he is a little Scott that I was beginning to feel left out. My father-in-law told me a while back that Henry does have my eyes, I think that this proves it, at least a little.

I'm sorry, WHAT???

Things you never thought you would hear your husband say:

"I need stirrup pants"

Scott was looking through a hunting catalogue tonight and this is what came out of his mouth. He tried to justify it by saying that his pants ride up in his waders so this would help.

I'm not so sure. I think we would have another round of issues if these worked out.

A Pre-Dinner Snack

Yesterday while I was making dinner Henry was running around the house. Normally this is not a big deal, we shut the doors to rooms that are not kid-friendly and he is free to roam. This time I forgot to shut the bathroom door. I realized this when he threw my facial soap into the kitchen. I picked it up to tell him not to throw soap when I saw this:

Rather than having the "don't throw" talk, we had the "we don't eat soap" discussion.

14 Months on the 14th

Henry turned 14th months today. To celebrate we took him bowling. Well, not really.

Henry loves to throw things as you may have noticed at the end.
We are working on that.

8 Things...

I read a blog that had "8 things others may not know about me". I wasn't sure if I could come up with 8 things of my own, so I thought that I would give it a try.

1. When I was little I didn't want a job in numbers - I am now an accountant.

2. I spoke with a "british" accent the entire summer after 7th grade.

3. My husband is the first and only guy I've kissed.

4. My family calls me "Fluffy"

5. I wore my hair in a ponytail every day of 6th grade.

6. I grind my teeth at night, I have a bite splint but haven't worn it in almost two years.

7. I watch Baby Boom and The American President anytime I see it on TV.

8. I love to watch the Food Network Channel

I did it - 8 things you may not have known about me, but you do now!

The Reading Corner

Reading books is part of Henry's bedtime routine. He knows that the books on his nightstand are for that night and when they are gone we are finished and it is time to sleep. In order to eliminate the pile I drop the ones we are finished with onto the floor between the chair and the nightstand. The pile stays there until I pick it up the next morning. If Henry gets to it before I do he often ends up in his own little spot "reading".
