You Love Me How Much?

Owen said to me the other day, "Mommy, every time I come home from work or go to the store, I am going to stop at the cemetery and put a flower on your sign because I love you so much." Apparently, he loves me to death.

For the Love of Tape

Owen loves tape. He tapes papers to his bedroom wall. I've found pipe cleaners taped to my kitchen wall, cds taped to the living room walls, and mardi gras beads taped to my couch.

How to Raise a Nerd

Jay likes to play chess. He likes the computer. He also wears black socks with shorts and hikes the waistband of his pants up to his armpits.

Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum

When I picked up the kids from daycare the other day, Jay was a little annoyed. "Mommy, Owen got a song stuck in my head." I, of course, had to ask what song that was. "Bubble gum, bubble gum in a dish, how many pieces do you wish." So it is not just an adult thing to get a song stuck in your head. It happens to kids too.

A Funeral For a Fish...

...because everyone with kids should have to endure at least one. Owen's beta, Scary Skull Pirate, died the day before we returned from vacation. No burial at sea for him. You'll find him in our back yard about 6 inches down in a bed of lilies with his own grave marker.

He Dresses to Impress

Owen likes to wear suits to church and a shirt and tie to preschool. Next year he won't be able to because ties are not part of the dress code, not even for Catholic school.

Mr. Green

Owen's class had a competition for St. Patrick's Day to see who could wear the most green. Owen won. He even wore green socks and underwear.

Now It's Owen's Turn

May 12, 2011 Owen lost his first tooth.
