I want to be a house.

I asked Griffin what he wanted to be for Halloween and he told me, "a cardboard house, mommy!"

And I said, "that's ridiculous, Griffin."  And he lost his mind.

"I WANT TO BE A CARDBOARD HOUSE.  I found one, mom.  It's only $50 at pottery barn kids.  I WANITNOW.  Look, it's totally worth it."

And then, I saw his point.  And he cried tears of joy.

I kid.  He is crying over graham crackers.  Specifically, not having them.

Score 1 for childproof door knobs.

That looks like my child's exact expression when his banana cookie request gets shot down.

You would have thought it was the end of the world and he hadn't just had a granola bar, apple sauce, and a squeezy packet and it was 15 mins before dinner. Tragic, I tell you.

These pictures are going to be pure GOLD when he brings his first girlfriend home! Congrats on your pregnancy by the way, so happy for you. X

A house. Ridiculous. If I'm every pregnant again....and due in October, that may be a good costume idea. ;)

I'm back...I'm back! I was playing hard to get. It worked. In reality, I got a 'smart' phone (you have one? Those things are really going to take off!). And so I check blogs on my 'stupid' phone, and I don't comment because it's a pain.
But I am back to using my computer. Lucky blogging world:).
I love your boy losing his tiny little mind.

I tried to post a comment on someone's blog from my "smart" phone the other day. Then when I got on my comp the next day I went to see if there were any witty responses and NOTHING. Because it didn't post. stupid phone...

Can we be facebook friends, yet? Or are you revolting?
