So I thought it was time to introduce a new feature. Although the title has pretty much spoiled any element of surprise, hasn't it? Hmm, didn't think that one through.
The Little Family M-G Weekly Wrap-Up will highlight one noteworthy moment of each family member for the week just gone. If nobody does anything awesome, I'll probably just make it up.
This week, it's all true.
He's in the bathroom and he's ranting. 'Please,' he is pleading, 'don't buy this brand of dental floss again. I was trying to get something out of my teeth and the floss got stuck! Then, I used the floss to remove the floss and got more floss stuck!' He was quite hysterical. As was I. But they were different kinds of hysteria.
Mr Just Turned 16 months old is all about the babble. Crazy, perfectly intoned babble. But in amongst the babble we get the occasional moment of coherence. My favourite of the week, in answer to the question, "What does the dog say?" was "Oof!" Close runner up is the constant kisses he loves doling out. 'Oof' eventually won out because it involves much less saliva transfer.
Master 3.5 years old is a master manipulator. If he can swing things round to his favour, he will. Last week, when he asked for more food, I replied, "No, just one biscuit" to which, after a short pause, he replied, "How about two one bikkits?" Hmmm.
What did I do this week that was awesome? What didn't I do? I just constantly operate from a place of awesomeness. I figure it's the tiger blood in me. But seriously, after all the bullshit with our neighbours, we got a letter in the mail to inform us that the rent is going up. Exorbitantly. So I may have found the Little Family M-G a new pad. It's cheaper and in some ways, it may even be better. While my thing lacks the cute or humourous factor, I think it is noteworthy. But oh man, I hate to move.
I'm going to try and capture a family portrait once a week to go in this very spot. But I just thought of it now so clearly I don't have one from last week. So here's one I prepared (much) earlier.
