Random thoughts posing as a post

There is something wrong with having to repeatedly ask your husband if he's sure nobody followed him home from a soccer game.

I, resident teeth snob, just had my first cavity ever. Mike was pissed that they didn't have to give me painkiller. He said it doesn't qualify as a "real cavity" unless Novocain is used. Whatever. (Who's the snob now?)

River likes to drink pool water. Last week he drank a lot. Then he puked. In the pool. Where people were swimming. Good times.

Meadow started ballet again yesterday. I can't put her hair in a bun because it's too short. Hope it grows enough by Nutcracker time.

Hunter is testing boundaries lately. Age appropriate, I'm sure. I wish it weren't also annoying.

Mike is in Minneapolis this week. I miss him already.

The pumpkin is huge! I haven't taken a new picture yet, but I plan to soon.

We tried to convince Hunter to try swim lessons. He said no because "that leads to swim team". Oh, the horror.

River is such a fun little person. He's exhausting, but wonderful.

I start school again next week. I feel the internet withdrawal already. I'm excited to have some time to myself.

For those of you who have toddlers: River has finally started to tolerate cartoons and he LOVES the Backyardigans and Wonder Pets. Now I can't get the songs out of my head. Wonder Pets! Wonder Pets we're on our way...

[Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!]

Now I'm going to have wonder pets stuck in my head all day long.

Nooooooooo. "Wonder Pets" gets on my nerves but I do enjoy "Backyardigans."

So - who would be following Mike home? Scary soccer fan? Disgruntled former employee? Professional talent scout? The sleuth in me wants to know.

Tell Hunter that I learned to swim 3 years ago, do it on a regular basis, and NO ONE has approached me about joining a swim team. (actually I misspoke - I did get asked to join the senior center ladies' syncronized swim team!) Yikes, maybe he's right.

Poor Mo - is there such a thing as a stylish hair net?? Just kidding! It will grow.

For River - the trick is to limit the amount of pool water you actually take in each visit. It only requires a small amount for the smell/taste to last all day.

Can't wait to see the pumpkin!

Wow! Already on your second year! Hope you enjoy it!!

sending love....
