Misc. Meanderings


Exciting news for Ethan. After running around like Nanny McPhee (snaggletooth anyone?) his two front teeth are now the property of the Tooth Fairy. They were dangling from his gums for several days but he wouldn't let us just pull them out. I tried to 'accidentally' bump into him a couple of times, but that didn't even work. Weirdly they both fell out in his sleep, one night right after the other. Probably from his forceful snores!

In other Ethan news, please note his great haircut. He loves to have a buzz and I finally gave in. Kindof. I couldn't quite go as short as a buzz because of some mental issues I have, so instead I opted for the 'starting-to-grow-out' buzz look. And apparently I missed lots of spots and Hub has banned me from any future buzz cuts that occur in the family. 



And after 21 days of being potty trained, Syd finally voluntarily told me she needed to go. I finally feel confident about her future in unders.

And lastly, I think I am emotionally ready to start my own Facebook account. I've been missing out on way too many coupons..... I held out from reading Harry Potter for years because it was too trendy and that's why I never did read the Work and the Glory series. But  it's time to pick a new cause to boycott. Maybe it'll be Walmart again? Anyhoo, get ready to friend me!

I'll be your first FB friend, yeah!!!!!! Now you won't miss all the exciting news that happens in your (you thought QUIET) neighborhood : ) Ethan looks just precious. Congrats to him on that big hole in his mouth!

You are not! You are such a follower...never in the first billion to start a trend.

How funny of Syd. Did you get that professional shot? You know slummy backgrounds are all the rage these days.

Why can't all kids be like LC's kids and potty train themselves? Good for Ethan and the Tooth Fairy. FB is only good if you check it everyday. Are you up to the challenge?

Sher said...

I don't check FB every day -- maybe every few weeks. I just enjoy looking at what everyone else posted and all of their pictures and then quietly getting back off. I don't like to write on walls. I think too hard about what everyone will think about whatever odd thing I thought of to write. It's nice that Ethan lost his teeth and didn't choke on them and that Syd asked to go potty. That is a great thing -- now if she'll keep it up.

I am so glad to hear you will be on FB... can't wait! Ethan looks so cute and I LOVE the picture of your girls!

Now you can witness all the drama on facebook for yourself. You can cause your own drama without trying because someone will find some way to take offense at anything you write.

ah... you little sheep you...

First thing - block all the "join my farmville co-op" and that sort of thing... not because you shouldn't play... but because you probably shouldn't see how much time I waste on them.

*note* I actually deleted my farm over a year ago... be proud, be very proud.

Netflix seems to be pretty popular right now. Maybe you should boycott that next :)
This sort of psychology must be the same one to explaim why BD refuses to get a cell phone.
And I guess that would go for Cannon to who just recently thinks it's too trendy to put his mess IN the potty and much cooler to put it NEXT to it!! aargh!

Meg,
This is Kim DeWitt Roberts, do you remember me? I found your blog from something Amy Jo sent me. It has been lots of fun seeing you in mommy mode.

Megz said...

Kim! Do I remember you? Seriously?! Like I could forget those wild years... How can I spy on you? It doesn't look you're on FB or blog--what's going on? Do tell!
