Malt O Meal Head

This is what happens when I leave my child alone with a bowl of Malt O Meal.

What did he do, stick his head in the bowl?

Little Biker Dudes

Liam and DJ raided the costume closet. Liam ran down stairs and excitedly told me:

L: Mom, this jacket is a 4T. I'm 4. And DJ's jacket is a 2T, and he's 2. These are perfect for us! Where's Kai and Coby's jackets?

M: You're wearing them. These used to be theirs when they were your age.

L: Oh, I'm glad they're ours now.

Gettin' ready to ride

Owning the road

They wouldn't leave the house without donning their jackets. And they didn't come off when we went to story time at the library. 

While looking for books in a dark corner, another little boy started crying and Liam stood there clutching a book with a look on his face that said "I'd like to see you try and take this book". So rebellious! ;)

All that ridin' wore him out

Election Day

Junior Dems
The boys voted in their classes
I asked who they voted for and why

K: Obama.
    Because he is already President and knows what to do.

C: Romney. Actually, I marked Romney, but I meant to vote for Obama. I thought I was supposed to mark out the one I didn't want.
     Because he cares about the country and the nation, and he's fair.


Jake went first thing this morning to vote. He waited for over an hour. I would have gone immediately after dinner, however there was projectile vomit to clean up. I didn't leave the house til 7:35 p.m., but I was back home by 7:50.
