I’m not sure why boys seem to be harder to potty train than girls, but Logan must’ve heard that once and decided to be a textbook example for me. We’ve been on and off with the whole thing since April (a whole six months!) before Logan finally got bribed decided he was ready to be a Big Boy for real.

Once he got the big boy undies on full-time, we had to make good on the bribe. And what does a 3 year old boy who loves to play dress up want? The Incredible Hulk costume of course! We went to the mall on Friday night to find it, and Logan was so excited that he could barely leave the store before begging us to put it on him. So, we put it on him in the middle of the mall and let him proudly walk around in the costume. We’ll be in big trouble when it’s Halloween time!

Just call me Corn on the Cob! September 9, 2012

The month of August is torture for me at work… Hence no time lately for any blog posts or much of the things that I find to be truly fun or relaxing. It’s why I take joy in the little things my family does to make my long days tolerable.

Like peanut butter and jelly for example! My 3 year old son was on his way home with his dad and sister one day recently when he decided to start calling everyone by the names of ingredients of his favorite sandwich- a PB and J of course! Logan was bread, Katelyn was Jelly and Dad was Peanut Butter. Best of all, you could put them all together for a family hug and make a PB and J sandwich! I asked later that night if I could be bread too. Logan sized me up and said “No, you’re corn on the cob!”. Thankfully in his mind, that goes perfect with a sandwich!

I love his creativity, and hearing him call out, “hey Peanut Butter, let’s make a sandwich”. I’ll drop anything to become the corn on the cob to his bread! 🙂

 

Case of the Missing Tomatoes July 18, 2012

So this year we are growing the best darn garden that can be grown on a deck. And by we, I mean Corey. He’s been out there every night, tending to tomato and pepper plants, along with basil, mint, chives, rosemary and other herbs that I wouldn’t recognize- what with the black thumb I was born with…

I’ve been getting excited about our first harvest of tomatoes, and we easily had 20 plus tomatoes on each plant… At least we did until troublemaker Logan got to them. He picked almost an entire plant clean of tomatoes, leaving us one lowly tomato and a pile of small unripe tomatoes.

Who wants fried green tomatoes?

This kid just LOVES his meatballs… And not just one meatball, TWO meatballs from the Spaghetti Warehouse. Ask Logan and he’ll gladly correct you that the restaurant is the “Meatball Warehouse”- sounds like a good place to me!
