The Boy Likes Salmon!

Before I went to bed last night I snuck upstairs to check on the little ones...and this is what I found...

no doubt set up in my honor!

So...little man slept until 9:30 this morning. What's a girl to do??? He took a two hour nap this afternoon and then he and MW were so exhausted by this evening that I stayed home from church to put them to 6:30!!! We were getting ready to eat dinner and MW had been on the brink of falling apart all day...and just as I was about to serve plates everything fell apart. She was crying...balling...sobbing...uncontrollably...little man was crying. It was one of those shining moments when you wonder if you're really cut out to be a parent. :) So...we fed the kids...T headed off to church...and I put them to bed. Both went down without protesting. MW even curled up beneath her covers and mumbled, "I am soooo tired." And then she was out. Just like that. 

As for the title...we had blackened salmon and broccoli for dinner. I split a piece of salmon between MW and T3 (salmon is one of MW's favs - so is broccoli). Little man inhaled it and stuffed broccoli (which he is not a fan of)  in just to get more salmon. He wound up eating an entire piece! Unbelievable! (At least I think it's pretty crazy that a 22 month old would down that much salmon!) Hooray!

And...MW was cracking me up a few nights ago. She got all "fixed up" and stripped the little man to his diaper, and then added a bib and brushed his hair...and he was a happy and willing victim...and once they were "dressed" MW announced they were going to an orphanage. I asked if they were going to visit the children...and she pointed out that she had fixed T3 up "real nice 'cause I'm trading him in for another baby." I told her not to, but she insisted that she would.


  1. Orphanage story takes the cake :)

  2. If it makes you feel any better, MW did tell me that if baby #3 is a boy, "we will not trade him in. we will keep him." whew. what a relief. :)
