*Interesting fact (read: possibly not at all interesting): See how I wrote the word "y'all" up there? Well, I actually say the word y'all all the time. Totally part of my speach, being that I lived in Southern Maryland for several years. But I almost never write it here on the blog. I think because I don't really have a southern accent, but I do say "y'all" and when written it makes it seem like I have a southern accent and I don't want my readers to imagine me with a southern accent. Probably when I meet you all at BlogHer you'll be like, "Wow, you TOTALLY have a southern accent."
*Speaking of, I think it will be interesting to hear everyone's voices when I meet them in August. I wonder if they match the person.
*So, for Oscar's birthday dinner last night he requested pasta and meatballs and instead of cupcakes he wanted doughnuts with sprinkles. He ate four of them and was up until 10:30PM last night. He's still sleeping the sugar high off as we speak.
*Instead of colored sprinkles on the doughnuts, there were red, white and blue sprinkles/stars on the doughnuts. I guess in honor of July 4th next month. I of course ate the patriotic doughnut but I have to admit I'm not at all a patriotic person. I mean I vote and root for the U.S. in the Olympics and stuff but in general I'm not all "Yeah, America! Woo hoo! USA is number one!" I'm more like, "America, meh." Pretty much the most patriotic thing I've done all year is eat that doughnut. Then again, eating a sugary, fatty doughnut is pretty freaking American, isn't it?
*What should I wear to BlogHer? I'm no fashion horse (do people still say that?), but I don't want to look inappropriate. I've been to conferences before and I've always worn business/business casual attire. Same go for BlogHer? I don't know if any of my old work clothes will still fit, or if they are all too dated. Anyways, what are other folks wearing?
*Miles has been cutting his molars and been an absolute cranky mess. I think the final one busted through last night so we may be in the clear. Other than the teething, he's been really fun. He's had a language explosion in just past few weeks, adding several new words and phrases (down, outside, snack, cheese, I want that, what's that, more, mine) and he's nodding his head correctly for "yes" which is very cute, and very helpful. He also seems to be getting beyond the "No" stage, where they say no for everything all the time even when they don't mean no. Now he only says "No" when he means "No." Which is still kind of a lot. He also loves drawing, dancing, singing, reading books (particularly ones about vehicles), dinosaurs, and choo choos. He turns 18 months tomorrow.
*We took the boys to the pool on Sunday and the LOVED it. Oscar learned how to "swim" underwater and Miles was jumping into the pool. Well, jumping into my arms in the pool. I'm so glad they are little water rats. I think Oscar will be swimming on his own by the end of the summer. Also, he calls wading pools "walking pools," which I think is funny. "They are not for swimming, Momma, they are for walking."
Okay, y'all, that's all I got for today. Head on over to Keely's and link up.
