Successes & Failures

Small Success: Parker went "pee-pee" in the potty today

Epic Fail: Most of the pee hit the floor, then he stood up, slipped on the pee, and fell on his ass

Books Come to Life

Parker doesn't watch much TV, but we are having a lazy Saturday morning so I decided to let him watch some PBS. The look on his face was priceless when he saw his Thomas the Train book come to life.  The next show happened to be Bob the Builder...a show with talking bulldozers, dump trucks, and cranes.  Parker looks like he's in heaven!

Boys are Weird

Things I never thought I would say...
"Parker don't play with your wiener at the dinner table!"  followed up a few seconds later with, "Hey hands above the tray!"

Daddy's Version

Parker has several construction themed books that he wants us to read over.and.over.and.over.again!  We've gotten bored and started to improvise the stories. Here is a typical Brian version of a book about bulldozers.

"Okay, see the guy on the red bulldozer digging that hole?  Well he's digging it in the wrong spot, but he doesn't care because he gets paid overtime.  And see the other guy in the yellow bulldozer?  He's filling in the holes that guy dug.  This job is under budget, but not for long because this guy here is going to drive over a bunch of really expensive tools and equipment and all the profit will be used to buy more.  And this guy is digging a really big hole, in the wrong spot and the guy with the wheelbarrow is going to slowly fill it back in, so that means this project is going to come in way over budget and they will miss their completion date."

Hmmm, something tells me Brian is a little frustrated with his crew.


Parker has learned to pull himself up on the dining room chairs and likes to sit at the table and play with whatever happens to be within his reach.  While I was making dinner, he was at the table rolling some pears back and forth.  I asked him if he knew what they were, and told him they were pears/fruit.  A few minutes later I looked over and saw bite marks in all 3 pears!

Oy Bedtime

Rocking Parker to sleep is less like a Johnson & Johnson commercial and more like wrestling a 23 pound bag of snakes.

Happy Halloween!

Parker the Lion

Jumping through the Lion Tamer Ring Toss Game at the church Harvest Party. 
(Notice the death grip he has on Brian's hands!)
