To A Sweet Shop We Go...

Today we took a little trip to a local sweet shop that just opened up. Brody was in heaven! However, he also tried to open the case to get to the brownies. Then, when that didn't work he tried to go around the counter to the other side. Good heavens, that boy loves sweets! And his daddy indulges him too much. Three brownies later, I wonder how he will sleep tonight....:D

Oh goodness...right as I was about to post this, Brody wandered into the living room and sat on the couch beside me. When I looked over at him his hands were covered in blood and he had been picking at a really bad sore on the back his leg. Needless to say, I freaked a little and called for Daddy, who have course came to the rescue.

To sum up this post, Brody loves sweets and has a HIGH tolerance for pain to the point of injuring himself further.

Happy Wednesday!

Getting a Haircut...and Sully!

Today was such a fun day! I was off work and the boys were out of school. So, we decided to take the boys and do some shopping. Unfortunately, my Ipad charger died halfway through the day so I missed capturing some of the best moments.

We started the day at Walmart. The  boys desperately needed haircuts. We usually take them to a local barber shop, but we felt like being spontaneous and the lady seemed able to cut Brody's hair. So here we go:

In the chair...doing good!
Whatcha got in there?

Tapping his foot the whole time!

And I'm Done!
Daddy to the Rescue!

Still Upset!
Little Brother's Turn

Pushing the Buggy through Walmart!

Loving on Sully from Monsters Inc, his favorite movie.
I did good when I spotted this toy!

And Sully is Ready for the Next Adventure!

Brody did so well at Walmart! We think the trick was letting him push the buggy. It kept him occupied and the store was not very crowded.

After leaving Walmart, Jeffery insisted on going to Academy Sports even though I reminded him of how much Brody hated the place last time we were there. He said it was a fluke so off we went. About three minutes into the store, Brody started crying and pulling us away and toward the door. I really think it is the smell of the store. It has an almost rubbery smell and apparently does not appeal to Brody's senses.

Finally, we went to Red Lobster for lunch/dinner. Brody had his token onion rings, chicken fingers, and fries. He did very well at the restaurant, too! I figured out about two months ago how much he loves onion rings or Bloomin' Onions, any variation of fried onion rings. We order that for his appetizer and he gets a little greasy, but he can wait for his food that way.

The day was a blast! I just wish I had my charger and could have captured more moments of the day! Now Brody is standing in front of me flapping his arms and playing with a piece of Blake's race car track that he tore off months ago. Love this kid!

Just stepped in....

Pee...yep a big puddle of pee. Do I have a dog? A cat, maybe? Nope.

It all started when I was sitting at the kitchen table and heard what sounded like water being poured out onto the floor in the bedroom. I raced in there to catch Brody standing on top of the dresser hurriedly pulling up his underwear. I felt the wetness under my feet and it didn't take long to put the pieces together. He had stood on top of the dresser, and peed on the floor...where I was now standing....oh joy!

I am going to try to update this blog more often as a journal of sorts! Hopefully one day I will look back on this blog and laugh at the way things used to be. Or I can read this to him one day.

Here is Brody and Daddy playing golf in Gatlinburg, TN last week.
