you bweaked it, daddy!

tyren saw adam put the leaf down on the kitchen table for the first time just now, clean the crevice. tyren was HORRIFIED and angry that daddy “broke” the table…gave adam a very stern and angry face and said “you BWEAKED it, Daddy!!!” (translation…you broke it). adam and i were cracking up. TOO FUNNY! and this right after he dumped […]

supermommy!

a couple mornings ago tyren woke up, rolled over (we hadn’t yet opened our eyes yet that i knew of…i was still laying there next to him in bed, hadn’t even attempted to open my eyes yet) and said —“HI SuperMommy!!” no lie. no idea where that came from, but my son just woke up one morning and decided i […]
