For those of you who missed it on Facebook, I uncovered a relic from Chris's graduate school past: a piece of paper dated AUGUST 26, 1994! I think it might have been his first day of grad school. Let's not talk about how or why that particular piece of paper (and 1,000 others just like it) moved 4 times in 3 states in less than 9 years.

I made some AWESOME banana muffins tonight. More muffintop for my muffintop, please! I cannot cook worth a damn, but baking? Baking I can do.

Actual phone conversation I had with my doctor's office today:
Me: Hi, I’d like to schedule a two-year checkup for my son.
Scheduler: What’s his date of birth?
Me: May 2, 2009.
Scheduler: And this is for a two-year checkup?
Me: Yes.
Scheduler: So he’ll be two on May 2?
Me: [rolls eyes] Yes.

For my friends with girl-children: do they laugh at their toots? Did they when they were 2?

For my non-family members: do the children in your family laugh at their toots? Did they when they were 2?


  1. As a mother of a boy child, toots become funny at two, hilarious at three and much more in what kind of toot it is...noisy, smelly, yucky, nearly poop..etc. I have no problem with body functions but my husband is much more mortified by these frequent announcements and conversations between mother and son! Have fun!

  2. My girl child thinks it's HILARIOUS :) but she's a "special case" in many ways so may not apply to all girl children - hehe!

  3. My precious flower does not toot :)

    We had a "toot" noise contest at dinner the other night which she thought was hilarious and now frequently blows a toot on her arm. She's quite good. Fast learner.

  4. Christy: I think Todd and Chris might have been cut from the same cloth!

    I'm a little surprised that you did not inquire from your family members!! Probably because we are such a reserved bunch that we really don't discuss toots......or, poop:)

  6. A tooty, a only gets funnier the older you get. Just ask "anonymous"
