a sunkissed moon

immediately after dinner tonight owen decided to spit out a sip of water so as to get his legs and feet wet so he could say "i need a bath!" (perfectly logical if you're 3). he quickly stripped and ran past ian when ian said,

"OWEN! you STILL have sunshine coming out of your bum?!"

"IAN! " i sort of gasped, fumbling over my words 
about to say 
"where did you even hear that expression?"
but before i could...

a streaker ran past and i saw owen's tiny bum.

complete with the fading lower back tat that daddy thought was hilarious to draw on the other day while owen was wearing his pull-ups.

literally: sunshine coming out of his bum.

 that's how awesome my kids are. sunshine shines from their bums.

can you say the same?

hero's work

Dear Memere & Papa,
Thank you SO MUCH for giving the boys stickers at Christmas!
They enjoyed them for an hour or so... until I took them away.
Dear Random Stranger From the Internet Whom I Found After Typing In; 
"how to remove stickers from the kitchen floor",
 Thank you for the weird and gross advice.
Sure enough, after about 2 minutes slathered in mayo -
the stickers came right off with a paper towel and minimal fingernail work.
This? This I call, Hero's Work!
(mostly because i do realize if this is really the highlight of my day, I have fallen a long, loooooong way...)

Another FAV!!
