Zebra and a friend are taking our boiz and her friends two boiz to the Sesame Street Ice Capades RIGHT NOW (started at 10) at the Corel Center. That should be a blast... the kiddies will be talking a hundred miles an hour when I get home.
Hey, big excitement for Corto last night... I took Ed out of his bed (crib) at, like 10:00 pm last night so I could fix his sheets and he took off down the hall. when I caught up with him he had his diaper off and was trying to sit on the toilet without falling in AND he managed to lay a teeny little log in the bowl!!! woohoo. Ed has discovered the capacity to use the toilet... sure he's pee'd in the toilet before but always as a part of an effort ... "hey Ed lets try and go pee in the toilet.."
(could this be any less exciting?)
Oh, and on the crib thing... Geo came running downstairs at 9:30 (they go to bed at 8:00) yelling for me to come and help "Ed is stuck" Zebra and I had been artfully ignoring the kids crying and blabbing over the monitor... So I go running up the stairs to their room and there's Ed. He's climbed up to stand leaning against the wall ON THE RAILS of the crib. He's crouching and crying his little eyes out cause he can't move without falling... I rescued him, thanked George and chuckled a bunch. Now, I'm not being mean... he didn't fall and it serves him right for screwing around on the bed... But the time has come to loose the crib... Maybe this weekend we'll bite that bullet. It's been nice having a little cage for him at night but all good things come to an end... except LJ I hope!!
ps. Mush time! I am 38 years old... at no other time in my life - at least that I can truly remember - have I felt so much love for such a diverse group of people... you peeps just fricken rawk!
