I was walking tonite and thinking. Yes, I can do both. I was thinking about this morning and me yelling (okay, raising my voice) at Gabe to roll up his window. Not only was it 40 degrees but the noise is annoying. I dropped him off, did carpool and headed to the gym totally forgetting the noise of the wind. I had a few minutes to spare and ran through the car wash. I got through to the rinse part when I realized Gabe's window was not open. Yes, it was my sunroof instead. It was just an inch or so but more than enough to totally soak me and the front seat. I pulled a bunch of books out of the back and propped myself up till I got home. No, I never made it to the gym. Though I had never laughed so hard at myself all by myself,
I made a bunch of those magic bar thingies last night, You know the graham cracker, chocolate chip and coconut thingies? David and I practiced self control and did not eat a single one. Well, okay until the the March of the Stairs began. I'm telling you, do not, whatever you do, do not march down your stairs once you have called it a night. Cuz chances are the kitchen is calling you.
Now see, I have learned 2 very valuable lessons today. The one I still need to learn is how to keep Gabe in bed. And I have tried it all, I am very stern and I have total will power (except the kitchen thing). The kid just will not stay in bed. We not only do the bunny kiss, but the cheek kiss, eyelash kiss, chin kiss, ear kiss, forehead kiss, eyebrow kiss, head kiss and of course the neck. What more can one ask for? Snack and a book are a given. hmm...maybe I need to go back to the baby days when I tucked him in, read a a book, kissed his little face and said goodnight. And the screaming did not get a response? But he is so darn cute....
Oh and you see who else is cute? No, I am not talking about all these cute girlies...they are gorgeous. I am talking about my little elephant. I really like him and thanks to Kayla he is now mine. But I am not sure if I love him. Maybe we'll let him hang out for a while and see if it's a mutual thing.
Now you ladies have a good night and oh, the Lakers won both nights. We'll talk about this on a later date. I'm having a hard time with my new camera and I'm a bit frustrated. I normally walk away from a game with 20-30 great shots when I used my rebel..I got the 5d and I walked away with 4-5. I'm sure it is all in the hands of the user and i need some practice but still I am frustrated.
Good night younglings.
UPDATE: it has been about an hour and I just heard a whimpering at the top of the stairs. I walk up, there's my Beast. I tell him he can lay in my bed. He replies "That's just what I want". After a quick hug, he says "Mommy you're so cute." Yup and that's all I wanted!
