THE Car seat ~

Can you teach an old dog new tricks? I'm such a procrastinator, always have been, and now because of that not so lovely personality trait, I've missed out on ordering the car seat that matches the stroller I bought. After several phone calls yesterday, including Toys R Us and Chicco corporate, I've learned the Chicco Keyfit in the color Iceberg has been discontinued. Wonderful. TRU was able to check stock in stores nearby, but to no avail. I've got some friends and family checking their local TRU, but at this point I'm not holding my breath. So, worst case scenario is my car seat and stroller don't match, C'est la vie, I guess. The baby will grow out of it within a year anyway, and then I'll be hunting for deals on a Britax. :P

Who-Cakes ~

We recently went to IHOP to try the limited time only, Who-Cakes. Riley has been bugging us for awhile to go, so we went with Grammy, Grandpa, Brendan, Meghan, and Megan. When the waitress set them in front of the kids, they were amazed! Camdyn waisted no time opening and eating the sucker on top, neither did the other two. Unfortunately, that was about all they ate of the Who-Cakes...they were all kinds of nastiness, nobody liked them. So, our advise to you...skip the Who-Cakes, Green Eggs and Ham, but be sure to try the Beezlenut Juice (which my mom says looks like blood clots, yum!) ;)

A Cat's Life~

Tashi is the epitome of laziness...she will spend the entire day sleeping, usually in our room, since it's the only safe spot away from Lumpy. Today I found her quite comfy, snoozing amongst the pillows on our bed. Her favorite appears to be Clyde's bolster pillow...when I show him these pictures, I'm sure he'll be less than thrilled. :P

Easter Bunny ~
Let me preface this by saying my son is fascinated with keys; big keys, little keys, car keys, tractor keys, skeleton keys.

So here was our conversation today:

"I want to be the Easter Bunny."
"Why, buddy?"
"Cause he has lots of keys."
"Keys, for what?"
"So he can get in our house and give us candy and Grammy's house too. He have a key for everybody's house, Mom?"

Apparently, he envisions the Easter Bunny as a high school janitor.

One Fish, Two Fish, Three Fish, Four~

I'm so loving all the fish stuff from Gymbo...and it's Gymbuck earning time, which makes spending so much easier on your conscience. (or at least that's my rationale!) ;)

WeeGo ~

Because of the recent concern over leaching chemicals in plastic baby bottles, Babylife is reintroducing glass baby bottles, but with a new design and safety twist: the bottle is covered with a modern sleeve that will help protect the bottle from breakage and also prevent bumping into other articles in your diaper bag. The sleeve is free of plastics and is 100% non-toxic.

And because they're so stinkin' cute, I want one in every color.

John the Schwan Man ~

Camdyn loves seeing John the Schwan man, she gets all excited and yells, "John's here, John's here!" The two of them have quite the ritual, she brings him a ball and they play catch, while I put my order together. Once he brings the food up, she pays him and gets a sticker from him that she puts on our calendar. There's a Schwan truck on the back of the catalog that she always has to point out as "John's truck".

I was telling Clyde about how the two of them interact and he made some crack about what's John doing while he's here so long. So, me being the smart ass that I am, replied that we aren't sure that this baby isn't John the Schwan man's baby. Haha! Clyde laughed and asked Camdyn if John was in mommy's room. Camdyn replied, "Uh huh." Which, of course, got a laugh out of both of us...and Clyde said he now has his proof and Cam would testify in court for him. I told him we better see what kind of witness she is, so I questioned her myself.

"Camdyn, was the Easter Bunny here today?"
"Uh huh."
"Camdyn, was Santa Claus here today?"
"Uh huh."
"Camdyn, is Dora taking a nap in your room?"
"Uh huh, Dora sleeping on me bed."

Case closed. ;)
