If you don't know about Keely and her Random Tuesday Thoughts, you must be living under a rock, so I suggest you take your lizard ass over to the Un Mom STAT and get with it.
*So, ohmygod I opened my reader this AM to the best news ever. After more than two years of trying, Xbox and ET are pregnant! I wept. Go by his blog and give him a virtual high five. Or ass slap. Whichever you go for (he'll dig both). And, not that he needs any blog promotion by me, if you haven't been following he and his wife's attempt at conception these past two years, you are really missing out. He's funny, poignant, eternally optimistic, and a great writer. Also, he thinks my kids are cute which scores him extra points.
*Remember how I was complaining about my whining, clingy infant last week? Yeah, well he ended up having some nasty endovirus that gave him a fever and blisters on his throat. On top of that, he kept vomiting up Tylenol and Motrin so I couldn't get his fever down. Thankfully he's back to his laughing, cheery self.
*So, the dreamy roofer's bid is not the one we are going with. We're going with the lowest bid, which is like $2K lower than the dreamy roofer's bid. I'm sad, but $1700 is much easier to swallow than $3600. Now I have to call the contractors we didn't select and tell them. I hate that part.
*My mom's flying in tomorrow, yay! I'm hoping for some fresh stories. Maybe I should live blog her visit?
*We're officially moving Miles up into size four diapers. Which would be awesome if we weren't also officially moving Oscar into size five diapers the same week. It would have been so nice to only have to carry one size in my diaper bag, but I guess my main goal is poop/pee containment and there has been way more leakage around here lately than I'm comfortable with. The amount I'm comfortable with being zero.
*Speaking of leakage, I had Miles in the Exersaucer while I was vacuuming this morning and he got super cranky. I went over and pulled him out and his feet were wet. And so were his pants, and the bottom of the Exersaucer. It was pee. But do you know was wasn't wet? His diaper.
*CSI NY is officially my favorite of all the CSIs. I knew Miami is the big fave, but I just can't stomach Caruso.
*Miles can sit up by himself for maybe a minute or two. Oscar is speaking in two, three, and even four word sentences. Geniuses, I tell you. I continue to be in awe of them.
*I'm trying to decide whether or not to take the boys with Nelson to Wyoming next month. On the one hand, if I don't go I'll be here alone with the kids all week. On the other hand, it's freaking Wyoming. What the hell are the kids and I going to do in Wyoming? Maybe I should take them to visit my friend in CA instead? We'd at least have stuff to do. But then, I have to travel across the country with two small children BY MYSELF. I don't know if I have the chops for that.
* A parting shot of Oscar watching the boob tube. Please ignore the filthy electronic gaurd. And yes he's pantless.
