Ah, the Children's Museum.... where you can:
1)splash random children in the water area
2) throw recycled rubber chips in the construction area because other children are doing it and not getting yelled at
3) forget to go to the bathroom (accident ensued.... daddy found a pair of pants in the car- but he ended up going commando and wearing his dry sock on the other foot because his other foot, sock, and shoe were... um... wet. But we didn't just spend $8 per person to leave after 20 mins....)
4) Paint your face with as much face paint as you want (mom controlled this one REAL quick!)
5) Have a fun afternoon (even though a nap was severely parents and said toddler) :)

Working Out

So Ivan and I have been working out pretty regularly this past year.... ok, Ivan much more than me. Anyways, it's almost always one of us staying home with Soy and one goes to work out. Last Thursday, Sawyer and I were on the way home from work/school and Sawyer asked if daddy was home now. I said "Yes he is. He didn't have to work today. But he was going to go out and go running." Reply from Soy: "Running where mommy?" Me: "Running to Albertsons I think." Response from toddler..... "SILLY DADDY! No RUN to store! Take CAR!" *sigh* All our healthy intentions just flew out the window......

Bad Doggy

After coercing Sawyer to eat one freaking bite of chicken and a piece of broccoli (lovingly called 'Dinosaur Trees') we decided to go have TCBY for dessert. I love TCBY- they always have a sugar-free option for me and 'blue' ice cream for Soy. Ivan usually gets his White Chocolate Macadamia Nut. So we left. We also left Bosco at home, which isn't unusual. I ran in to TCBY and got the ice creams and since we were going to eat them in the car on the way home- Sawyer got vanilla with sprinkles (images of blue, pink, and yellow ice cream on the car seat prompted this!), I got sugar-free chocolate, and Ivan, of course his usual. None of this is really important to the story, just thought you should have the background information (and possibly make you want ice cream....) We get home and walk in..... scraps of dog cookie and cat cookie packaging.... all over the floor.... everywhere.... Apparently Bosco, feeling left out about going to get ice cream, decided to help himself to the pantry and get out his cookies as well as the cat's and eat them. Soy walked him, took one look at the floor, looked at Bosco and said "BAD BAD BOSCO! NO MESS MY HOUSE!!!!" Ivan and I had to try so hard not to laugh out loud! Sawyer then proceeded to tell Bosco that again while picking up the cookie packaging remains. Ironic when the toddler (who makes most of the mess in the house) is telling the dog not to mess his house. :)
