boys & girls are different
you may be saying to yourself
ever so sweetly
'duh'
& i never really thought that they weren't different
but
yesterday i got a little hint
in real life...
the whole fam on a walk
& miss m walking from one flower to the next
saying
'flala'
(you can not tell me that you have ever
heard of a better baby way to say flower
you just can't
i won't believe it
& i won't listen
flala is the #1 way
& yes i am an open & accepting human being
honoring diversity
why do you ask?)
so miss m is flala hunting
& Q is doing this...

riding a bike
okay so this post is so disjointed
because of course i know that boys & girls both ride bikes
bikes: equal oppurtunity vehicles
(i'm designing the new ad campagn for bikes, you see)
the thing that seemed funny was
that Q was never a flower picker
he would point & say 'flowe'
(which is the #2 cutest baby way to say flower in case you wondered)
but never really interested in having them
miss m
she wants them all
& she arranges them all in her right hand
as she points for you to give her more with her left
& she holds them so tight
that she is gently squeezing the life out of them
(although i guess technically
when i picked them for her
i was the one to take their lives
so that's good
the less amount of guilt on a 16 month old the better)
anyway
just cute i guess
& i suppose if we are really being technical
i could have just written that hmmm?
'just cute'
& left it at that...
nahhhh

also before anyone goes & calls
the national federation of helmetless children
NFHC, for short
this was Q's first little stint with the training wheels
& we were all so excited
& it was so fun
& i was taking pictures
& as we walked back into the driveway
we realized that he wasn't wearing a helmet!
oh my goodness
no wonder this kids has already had two broken arms!
but now we have one
NFHC approved
:)

hope you are all enjoying your summer
we are
our family
2 boys
2 girls
2 fun
(oh for cheesey, i know
but i couldn't resist!)

:)

ps i meant to add something to the last post...
the parts they were audtioning for:
serious three year old boy with head turned to the right
confused curly haired girl with head turned to the right
&
excited dad sitting next to his favortie cartoon character of all time
& guess what?
they got the parts!
:)

oh dear. I am now realizing that we have had a helmetless tricycle rider for the last year! So, I get the worst mother of the year award! =P
Love "flala"! H says it "fowow". Can he have the #3 spot?
He likes picking dandelions and eating them. He likes eating everything really, as long as it is on the ground and not food.
Can I just interject something here? Why does a nasty weed have such a fabulous name ---Dandy-Lion? And the most wonderful shade of bright happy yellow? It's just not right!
Anyway, maybe I should blog someday...nah. =)
