That's What He Said

"Got my new pack-pack!  And it has a buckle!"

During a quiet part of Mass on Sunday, I whispered to Alexander "You're being so good today!" and he shouted "AND MY UNDERWEAR IS DRY TOO!"


Speaking of potty training...whenever we ask him if his underwear is dry, his response is always "All Day!" no matter if it's the end of the day or 6:30 am.  He reminds me of this guy:



Any person that comes to our house: "Why is he in his underwear?"
Xander: Because I'm on the Potty Train!

Once we finally arrived at Plymouth Rock, Xander yelled:


"Why we lookin' at a wock?"


And finally...
Our babysitter (who's back in Steubie...boo) started doing this trick to get Alexander to go to bed for her.  She called it "Chinese Tuck-In" and would tuck him in like an egg roll while making karate sounding noises.  Hey, whatever gets the job done.  Here's Xander trying to show me what Chinese Tuck In sounds like (yes he's in his underwear):

First Day of...


First Grade for Maggie:


Second Grade for Eamon:


Fourth Grade for Andrew:


Sixth Grade for John-Paul:


New school for everyone!


(Alexander starts pre-school next week)

It's the most wonderful time of the year :)


P.S. My Dad is recovering really well from open heart surgery (triple bypass and aortic valve replacement).  He is able to walk around and is in great spirits.  His main complaint is the lack of sleep in the hospital and that his wedding ring was cut off, after never leaving his finger for 48 years.  Thank you so very much for the prayers, we could really feel them!!

Go Away

Hi friends!  Today I'm over at Kate's awesome blog participating in her series about motherhood before having older kids in the house.  It's a great series for new and young moms that I wish I had access to back when I was a newbie!  Go see for yourself...


But, uh, Kate, I never wiped my nose on an Aden and Anais blanket when I was a new mom.  Only because I don't think they existed back in the old ages.  We used cloth diapers for spit-ups and nose-wiping back then.  You new moms are so fancy ;)
