A day late and a dollar short, here's my RTT. Stop by Keely's yesterday and see a whole lot of random from a whole lot of random bloggers.
My Dad came to visit yesterday. Oscar got attached surprisingly quickly and has been asking for him all day. It's sweet.
Another thing Oscar has been doing all day? Being an asshole. He's been demanding Cars and refusing to nap and trying to play with our new phone (he destroyed the old one.) So, you know what? I decided I'd let him cry in his room for as long as it took to get him to nap. And I brought him downstairs 10 minutes later to watch Cars and slam the new phone on the floor. He wins.
When Oscar was four months old I thought he was getting so big! But I think Miles at four months is such a little baby.
My friend Ellen had her baby yesterday. Her third baby, her third boy. Avery James. Cute name, cute baby. I have another friend that's due next week and another due in August and another just found out she's expecting. And you know what? I'm jealous. Don't tell my husband.
Speaking of babies, I had a play date with two of my friends from high school a couple of weeks ago (hi, Angela and Leah!) and their kiddos. Leah happens to have four babes, which is how many I want, but Nelson and I compromised at three. I told Nelson about Leah and her fantastic kids and he was like, "How is she?" And I said, "She's fine. She's happy." And he was like, "But I mean MENTALLY, how is she." And she's fine, which I told him, so he said, "Okay, then, lets go for it." And I was like, "What? Go for four?" And he said, "Yes, go for four." I was pretty pleased, and then he sort of chuckled to himself and said, "I'd like to see you TRY to have four kids." Like he was DARING me to have four kids or something. DARING me. Maybe now's a good time to tell him I'd really like five.
So, on Monday, after my roofing/ass post, Nelson was feeling a little slighted. See, Nelson is always trying to do things to make the blog, good things, but they usually get lost in the shuffle of regular craziness. We had the following email exchange:
N: I have comments on your blog
J: comments? what comments?
N: nothing bad....you are funny!! also......My first objective when I bought you the jewelry in Philadelphia was to show my love and appreciation for you....and....I was also thinking at the time that I could hope to increase my "score" on your blog....darn...I guess I will try harder next time.... [over use of ellipses, all Nelson]
J: ah, and here I though you just loved me. that's funny. and blog worthy.
N: yes ....I have been reading your blog more and more...even more since I cleaned up my office space and have a proper lunch time eating the lunch you lovingly prepare.... [again with the ellipses]
J: now you're just sucking up.
N: it's true
