I feel so guilty...

I'm so absent from the blog. I'm unmotivated and my sons's second birthday has passed without so much as a peep from me. Terrible!

Ok, so here goes...

Cade turned 2 in February. He's a big, chatty, goofy boy. He's seems smarter than we are. His memory is crazy and he tells us stories, with a lot of "ummm, uhhh, yeah!" thrown in. He's such a cool guy and so stubborn! He recently moved in to a double bed. He was freaking out about having mommy or daddy sleep with him and you know-neither of us can squeeze one ass cheek in to a toddler bed, nevermind a whole freakin' adult body. So he sleeps in his double bed, crappily (yes I made that up) that is. He still wakes up, but no more bottles, just cuddles. Who invented the double bed-I must hug them! So the whole point of the story is that yesterday he took me to HIS bed and told me that it is "Cade's bed, Mommy's bed" to which I responded "Who sleeps in the big bed?", and received "ummmm, uhhhhh DADDY and DEACON!". So daddy and the cat share a bed and mommy and Cade share a bed. Apparently Tyler needs to get on night time duties every now and then. Yeah.

And on a different note, apparently you can accurately predict your child's height at 2 yrs of age, by multiplying by two and adding one inch. So he'll be 5 "10-YES! I'm super excited that he won't be short. So while he is tall now, apparently he is only average-can someone tell me how he is in the 90th percentile for height then?

Hey, when did your toddler start asking "why, who, where, what"? Cade inserts one of those in to nearly every sentance. "Why noisy mommy, Why sunny mommy, Why cold mommy, Why moon in sky mommy, Why Deacon on bed mommy (uhh Cade, did you forget that's Deacons bed!), Why daycare mommy, Why daddy work mommy (to which he usually tells me-Make money mommy, pay bills!), Why blowdry mommy", and many many more. You should hear my genius answers to the scientific based questions. Today he asked why the moon was smaller and I told him that it was because we were on page 6 of "Papa Get the Moon" (Eric Carle). Yeah, that translates to "how the hell do I know???".

So Cade had a great birthday and he's super cool. We sat through lunch the other day and carried on a full coversation about trains, how much he loves trains, the Thomas that is perpetually glued to his hand, and going to "Toys IS Us-that's right not Toys R Us" to see more trains. Such a smart guy! But don't touch Thomas, he might attack!

As for me, well I continue to be boring. I did go to Vegas, I did spend far too much, I do continue to have guilt, but I did have fun. Lots of fun-go, leave kids with grandparents. And Tyler, well he's even more boring, the poor sap didn't even get a trip to Vegas.

I feel guilty, too. I haven't visited my blogroll in forever.

Happy belated birthday to Cade!
