Pictures of the Day

Today's blog post will be told in pictures. Too bad this wasn't next week when I would have my new camera in hand. Though the pictures might still be sub-par and I would just be an idiot wannabe photog with a really expensive camera. But that's something to worry about next week.

I went to pick up Boo from school this late morning, and in celebration of Earth Day, all the children made Earth Day projects. I saw the other kids' projects as they walked by with their moms. Their projects made claims such as, "I promise to ride my bike," "I promise to plant a tree," or "I promise to walk to school." I looked forward to seeing what Boo's Earth Day promise was. Well, here's what I got:

This coming from the boy who answers "Superman" to the question of what he wants to be when he grows up. I guess this promise can be interpreted as a career goal as well.

When we got home, I put Tess-a-Bess in the only truly baby proofed place in our home. Yeah, yeah, I know, she's nearly a year and I should have baby proofed more than a portion of the basement. But in my defense, it is where we spend the most time, and I still need examples of my worthiness of the MOTY award. In order to baby proof the basement, you need to barricade to spaces between the couches and the treadmill to lock Tess-a-Bess in the pay area of the basement. Looks here like she wants to get past that barricade:

Perhaps a stronger, child safety sanctioned barricade is in order. Or maybe a stack of boxes would work instead!


  1. What kind of camera ya gettin'?

  2. I love the pic of your kid crawling under the chair. That brings back memories of when I was a little munchkin! We used to make forts out of blankets draped over the furniture, and we'd stay under there for hours (so it seemed).

    Love the Superman sentiment.

  3. I love that. Hey - it's a honorable goal in life.

    We really don't have anything baby proofed except Luke's room.
