the body book

after many many questions of "what's in my body?" and "what's in my bones" etc etc we found a body book for him, this photo is not it, I cannot find a photo of it, so this will have to do, it is pop up and its very above what should be his comprehension level, but I do have a genius child so....

Baby Monitor Update, "Blue Blood, Arteries, hmmmm, this is?....we don't fix it (a pop up page ripped)...bones!!! bones bones bones!....bones!....and that is your stomach, that is your head, that is your brain, too....(pages turning)! wow wow!...yucky,blue blankie, yucky...pbs kids dot org (been saying this all night, he could do their promo for it!) and tell...subaru! (yawn)....eye drum? NO! Ear drum, a mouth doctor, a finger doctor, a fuzz doctor a hockey doctor! Caillou!'s nap time...not wake up time....lay down! book? yes, wait!....big cat....chew chew chew....I get an egg!...I am a him, no I not a him...they got yellow, yell yell, white white white, yellow!'s walkin' around (no, it's mommy walking around making sure the drunks out on the sidewalk keep on movin').....I'm sorry, I'm sorry...(yawn)...."

happy easter!

Easter 2010, mom's camera was lost for egg dying this year, good one mom...

"Happy Easter! Happy Day....knick knacky paddy wack, give a dog a bone, this old man came rolling hooooome....this old man came, inside one?....played my knee, those much of berries! give me that no....this about orange? a cup, green up, a shape....came rolling home, red! red!...b-b-blue!.....see colors, see red, blue, blue, oh blue....hi monkey bar dress...all done...nine, no no no.....(sneeze)! toyota! toyota! (results of the brainwashing by his grandfather this weekend)....subaru, pontiac, subaru, yes! does, she don't...I happiest, it right now...right now....we going to Vegas! (yes we are in 2 months!)'s beautiful eat flowers..."

To demonstrate his strength and intimidate the cousins in the egg hunt, he took a boiled egg he found and squeezed it until it broke! With his bare hand! So much of an egg hunt is psychological warfare and once you figure that out, you get all the eggs...

where's my stick?

I hear I have some new readers who have no idea what is going on here. Welcome! This is my son, Anthony, who is 34 months old (almost 3). After we brush teeth, read 3 books, sing 2 songs and say prayers and give kisses and hugs, I close his door and this is what I hear on the baby monitor. We have found it very entertaining, so I thought I should share...

what is yakisoba? When daddy was in Japan he enjoyed Yakisoba and has been searching for it for years. My friend Tish told me the H Mart in Denver sold some so for spring break we found some. We all love it at our house....

Yakisoba (焼きそば?), literally "fried noodles", is a dish often sold at festivals in Japan, but originates in China. The dish was derived by the Chinese from the traditional chow mein, but has been more heavily integrated into Japanese cuisine like ramen. Even though soba (noodles made from buckwheat) is part of the word, yakisoba noodles are not made from buckwheat, but are similar to ramen noodles and made from wheat flour.

a green witch

Lately he has taken to sleeping with the lights on. He tells us he is "scary lights off".... But in this outfit: dunderware, snow boots, a helmet and armed with 2 tennis balls in a sock, I do not know how a monster would not be afraid of him!
