Summer stuff

This summer has just flown by. We have done all sorts of things like this:
Park time on the sunny days....

Dragon Festival in Chinatown in Seattle. (I had always wanted to see a Dragon Dance and this one was great especially with the applause-hungry dragon dance teacher kept making the kids dance because the audience loved it. Did I mention it was really hot and they looked miserable, but hey anything for applause, right?)

Went to the Bite of Seattle and got out of our comfort zone for sure this year. The best thing was fried alligator and the homemade strawberry shortcake.

We have also been learning about parenting, of course. First rule of summer, always bring every member of the family their own water bottle because some of them drink open mouthed after eating strawberry shortcake. Yummy!

The other thing is to childproof everything. Even if they don't want to be. (don't worry, he has become a pro at removing these little buggers from the sockets. He thinks it is a game. I wish I could get my money back because it hasn't really child proofed anything.)

What have you been doing with your summer?

As I scrolled through my recent posts I came to the realization that I am not who I used to be. While I used to scorn the blogs out there that only talked about their 'my-kid-is-cuter-than-your-kid' posts, I realize I have become one. While in my head I am so much more, in reality I am simply Baby/Bub's mom. All I do revolves around him and his antics. Most of my laughs during the day aren't from customers or something funny I read, it is from him and his little personality. And while I may never become a world famous blogger with tons of followers (which used to be a dream of mine.) I realize that this blog was never meant to be that. It was simply, humbly meant to show everyone the going on in my normal, everyday life (with maybe a little humor and wit along the way.) And so with that anticlimactic revelation, look that face... isn't it just precious?!

He makes this look too cool

Lounging by the pool on one of the 5 warm days this summer! Where did my little baby go? And I have no idea where he got all the attitude!

Bub's fun game that keeps me running around after him is he loves to get into the cupboard and feed the dogs cookies. I managed to grab a photo of him in the act. He doesn't look too guilty, I mean how can you think that he is doing anything wrong with a face like that. And I figure as long as it doesn't exceed 2 cookies per day, it is a lesson in sharing, right??

So this is normal right?

Bub decided he likes to wear the dog's collars as a crown on his head. Every so often he brings me one and once I put it on his head he happily toddles off.

Crackin me Up!

When Thing one and Thing Two need to go outside, Bub likes to stand at the window and do raspberries and blow fishes on the window. It seriously has me laughing outside while he is doing it. And the sound is all him. If you need a laugh today this will do it for you!
