Another Monday Musings

'Cause I got plenty of things to say, but nothing worth a whole post.

Ben
There once were two boys who were friends.


One was named Zane.


One, Ben.


Apart, they were the sweetest of boys.


Together, they made such a horrific amount of noise –


That it drove their poor moms to distraction.

(insert a picture of me holding a martini here)


I know it doesn’t rhyme, but seriously my soft spoken, gentle, little boy becomes a crazy banshee while under the influence of Ben - another soft spoken, gentle little boy. It’s like Zane’s hopped up on goofballs when that cute blonde is around. Ben is crack. Ben is speed. Ben is crystal meth.

We love Ben.

Got Self-Esteem?
I just got done reading an article from Parenting magazine (March 2004 – apparently my magazine circle needs to look at recycling) about kids and self-esteem.
Of course, it was saying how kids have too much self-esteem these days. Blah, blah, blah…

But then I had the following conversation with Zane, and it did give me a moment’s pause.

Me: Zane, you’re the best little boy in the whole world, do you know that?

Zane: Uhhh...huhhh. I is.

He doesn’t have healthy lungs, his immune system ain’t for crap, and we've still got some work to do on grammar, but my boy has self-esteem.

I love Zane.

SRH is a Scaredy Cat
Last night as we drifted off to sleep, I tossed one of Zane’s stuffed toys out from under my tummy and it landed in front of SRH’s face.

And while maybe you had to be there, please picture a big, burly guy jumping three feet up from the bed and screeching like a Nazgul – and you will get the image that had me cracking up for a good ten minutes last night.

I love SRH.

Those are two cutie pies, right there.

The SRH story is cute, too.

Nazgul...
SRH may be a scaredy cat, but he certainly is a lucky one to have a wife who knows WHAT a Nazgul is...
BTW, thanx for the congrats on the #1 son!

It was so funny I just about pee myself every time I think of it!

lsig-
They are just so cute together.

I love to laugh at SRH. Gives my life meaning, it does.

jw-
You know I adore the fantasy genre. Well, maybe you didn't know that. And maybe I only like a certain portion of fantasy books (must have a goddess theology and strong female characters), but I still call myself a fantasy fan.

And it doesn't get much better than Tolkien. Or much longer. Ee gads, I wanted to poke my eyes out for the first 300 pages.

Yeah. It was awesome.

As much as it drives the Mommies crazy - every child needs someone to let lose with. It's funny about SRH. It's good to keep them on their toes. :)

And yes, in Disney we will have a suite with a full kitchen as well. I wouldn't travel without one either. I'll also have to make sure I know of all the food stores where I can get her food b4 going. It will be quite the chore.
