Things

1) My husband bought a compact lamination machine for the house and it’s awesome. I want to laminate all the things.

2) Billy’s favorite adjective lately has been “wonderful.” It is the cutest dang thing. “Mommy, this ice cream truck is wonderful.”  ”Mommy, that picture is wonderful.”

3) Oh the reason my husband bought the lamination machine was so he could laminate a bunch of things he printed out to hang on the walls at his Green Lantern birthday party in 2 weeks. (not only am I a 12 year old, I am married to one).

4) Next weekend we are finally going to a wedding we were invited to!!! It only took 5 invites. This one is local, lots of our friends will be there and we are getting a babysitter for 9 hours. It is going to be amazing.

5) Speaking of weddings, I was asked to be a bridesmaid in my friends wedding next August.She was one of my bridesmaids and is actually the last of my bridesmaids to get married. I’m super excited for that too. Now I am just debating whether to go along or make it a family trip with daddy and Billy…

6) I had a business lunch today with some of my co-workers and a rep from a freight forwarding company. It was the first business lunch I’ve gone to without our CFO. It went well, but why do I often feel like a child playing office in my professional life?

7) Billy requests I blast the Ghost Busters song every single day on the way home from school. It’s so cute how he tries to sing along, but his timing is completely off. 

8) We officially bought the first of Billy’s Christmas presents tonight. We had a 20% off coupon for a playhouse at Toys R Us that expired today. The big challenge is going to keep ME from wanting to bust it out between now and Christmas…

This child seems huge to me. Where did my baby go???

I bought this pajama top at a thrift store when I was in high school and I saved it through many years and many moves knowing one day it would go to good use. I found it in storage this weekend. I almost missed the window when my son could actually wear it!

Maybe he will learn through osmosis…

Successful afternoon mini project: cardboard boxes to plastic bins. About 5 move plastic bins should take care of the rest of the important stuff in storage. Then we just have rearrange it all to make the best use of the space. Oh, and throw out some things… that’s the hard part.

Pulled out a few random things I thought Billy might enjoy from my extensive collection of Batman stuff while I was going through storage this afternoon. The Bat Signal is really really cool. Limited edition. Only 5000 made according to the numbers on the bottom. We’ll use it as a night light in his bedroom.

Got him up at 7:15, had some dinner, went to Toys R Us (he loves that ice cream truck), and now a late night Playdoh party. We’ll be up til 11 or so…

Welp, the floor nap went on for 45 minutes and then when he woke up all confused I could tell he was still exhausted so I put him back down in his crib and we’re going on another 45 minutes. He’s not down for the night. There’s no way. We are going to be up until midnight :/ I think I will take him to Toys R Us to run around the aisles for a while and burn off some energy maybe…
