Ramblings of a Suburban Mom

Today I’m smiling because:

~They caught the guy. You all know what I am talking about. And the people coming out in the streets to cheer the police officers, swat teams, etc. made me tear up just a little. Boston, you are one amazing city.

~B didn’t get to see L on his birthday, but we made sure to make him a video. And L was all into it. Usually he’s annoyed when I want him to do a video on command, but not for B! And yes, he picked his own outfit. Like how short the sleeves on that shirt are? That’s my fault for not removing it from his closet ;).

~B is almost done with school for the semester. And I am sort of smiling because I think he’s cute that he hasn’t skipped a class once. I was quite the skipper and didn’t think twice about it. Not B!

~L doesn’t know it yet, but he and B are going to a birthday party today at a new trampoline park by our house. OMG he is going to LOVE it! I cannot wait until he finds out!

~As you know, WB turned one yesterday and while I can’t believe he not my baby anymore, I am smiling because I have successfully completed his monthly onesie pictures! The first few months were easy and then he started to move. OMG why didn’t anyone tell me it was so hard to get a baby to sit still on command??

~My girl Jen is running the Blue Ridge Marathon today and I thought about her (and all marathoners) yesterday when I was testing my new shoes out on the treadmill.  I was beat after 30 minutes on that thing.  Marathon runners amaze me!

~B shaved off his “pinies” (L’s term for facial stubble off a few days)!  I was seriously scared he’d start to grow a beard (he threatened it), but thank goodness he didn’t!

No more pinies!

~B’s brother’s wife (aka my SIL) sent me a couple of hysterical pictures she found of him and his brothers back in the day.  OMG.  Hysterical.  I don’t think B will care if I post one of them, so here you go.  He’s the smallest one with no pants on.  I think they are in the wheelbarrow ;).

B as a kid

That’s it from here!  What’s got you smiling today?

    The weather in Michigan today certainly isn’t a cause for smiling about but hopefully that will soon pass!
    I’m so jealous of all the monthly onsie pics I see everywhere. Apparently I knew nothing about babies when I got pregnant and this is one of the items I sooooo wish I had known existed! Oh well, maybe for baby #2!

    All those things make me smile too!! And I think it should be he and B, because if you take out “and B” him doesn’t sound right. I can’t wait to hear all about the trampoline party.

    Old baby pics are hilarious. I don’t know about you but sometimes you see one and go “what I wouldn’t give to either remember what exactly was going on OR to know what they are thinking” in them. Because they often look ridiculous ha

    So many smiles today! Love the year’s worth of WB in the onesies. He is TOO cute! Hope B enjoyed his birthday song from L!

    I know what you mean about babies not wanting to sit still. Little Danny is 10-months and he can’t even lay still for a diaper change, let alone pictures.
