The Weekend

Hello my little cupcakes. I will now tell you about my weekend.

Friday night, Fen was sleeping at a friend’s house and Beckett pooped on the potty for the very first time ever. It was epic. If you are a mom, you know how epic it actually is. Jumping and screaming, high-fives, hoorays, fireworks, magical sprites flying everywhere, streamers.

As we promised, we took Beckett to Target right away for a special trip to buy 2 presents and ice cream, so we could return home and have a party for him. Yes, a poopy party.



The next morning, somebody wanted to come on in to bed and get all cozy. Coziness gets loud and squirrely very quickly.


Later?! Christian and I totally snuck out to the hardwood store while the elder children watched the younger children. I took pictures of wood and my husband looking at wood. Quick! Somebody tell me a wood joke.



These are the natural colors of these woods. Aren’t trees the coolest? Trees are the coolest.

Probably the best part of the weekend, though, was that I actually made a dinner that didn’t taste like ass. I may have even restored my credibility in the kitchen. Here is what I made:


The rice part might not sound that exciting, but I didn’t freaking burn it, so shut up.

    Congrats on the pooping!!!

    That is a big deal so I get it.

    Your posts always make me happy.

    Don't know why, they just do.

    Btw, that isn't enough to eat.

    I am on a diet but I at least get to eat 3 more pieces of rice.;)

    Shopping to look at wood is so much more fun that what we did — shopped for tile. My husband has terrible tile sense. He likes the ugly. Or maybe he just wants to live back in the 70s. But wood, now that would be exciting!

    Congrats on the poop. As I get older, poop again becomes part of the daily conversation … if I allow it to.

    I think poop parties should be held no matter how old you are! Why oh why does my brain fail when there is finally an opportunity for a really good wood joke. And last but no least – congratulations on an ass free dinner.

    Exciting weekend! Congrats on the potty training. What is the wood for? Now I need to know. And your dinner sounds excellent!

    Poopy parties are awesome.

    That last pic: is that the actual serving size? Because remind me to bring a snack if you ever invite me over for dinner.

    Woohoo! Definitely worth 2 toys!!!

    I remember at RISD the Purpleheart wood was highly desired! Of course I could never bring myself to spend (even my parents money) on such expensive wood.

    Trust me, there's no joke necessary. It's common knowledge that when the parents sneak away from the kids, there will be wood involved.

    Yay for poopy on the potty!! Mom here, so I get what a big deal that is. Congrats to your little guy. Presents and poopy party well deserved!

    And rice is freaking hard! Good job for your successful rice making.

    That's some nice wood your hubs has got there. Lucky girl. 😉

    Yay for poopy parties and wood! Disjointed but cohesive happiness abounds!!!

    Congrats on not buring the rice! Do magical sprites come out and frollick when that happens too?? Do they ever fight with the poopy part sprites? Sprite fight.
