What I'm Workin' With...

Anyone else go get their Grand Slam Today?? :)

Cami: Just caught her in the garbage eating an apple core that was covered in vacuum dust goop. It was everything I could do to not vomit on the spot. Sick! I walked over and said "Camille!" and she promptly dropped the core and started crying. She knew how busted she was. Here she is eating a much more appropriate cracker. She's happy almost all the time. And she makes friends wherever we go. Particularly old people. They love baby red hair. Warren: This picture - what in the what?? That face...he's weird. He spontaneously tells me he loves me. (heaven!) Today I replied with the standard "I love you too" and he exclaims "oh mom, I love it when you say I love you too!". He's a sensitive little soul. On one hand it's awesome - cuddles and love much the time. Our favorite is the hug robot. One of us becomes the hug robot and we chase eachother around with robot walk and talk, demanding hugs. On the flip side, he cries and pouts when things don't go his way. Beyond annoying. Or if I yell at him (always with good reason, I assure you), he puts on this sad little face - "mom, it makes me so sad when you yell at me". Then listen to me, little dude. Problem avoided. But he's learning to say "Sure, mom" because I gush over the fact that he listened and complied happily. Sometimes he'll even pick out his own tasks to perform - "mom, tell me to put my boots in the closet" "Warren, put your boots in the closet." "Sure mom!" pauses and waits for the praise...."THANK YOU WARREN! You're the best kid in the universe, you make me so happy, bla bla bla" Then he smiles and takes care of business. What a guy! He's also very good to his sister 99% of the time. Check the video of him making her laugh. Nothing better.


Good day to be a mom. Even though it's snowy and cold, the sun is shining and that helps (thanks Denver!) Candyland awaits...gotta get to it.

Oh, and if you're wondering what the heck that ugly thing is in the corner of the video - it's my new project. $12 for this solid desk. It is currently a hideous shade of chipping blue paint, but it won't always be so. We'll put it in Warren's room when it's all prettied up. I think I'll wait until we move/have a garage to tackle it. And speaking of moving, you might be interested to know that we put an offer in on a short sale home back in December. Didn't want to get our hopes up because short sales take forever, and we've still been looking at other places. Not a done deal yet, but things are looking good. I want my $8k tax credit, so we'll almost definitely be moving sometime this spring. Not too far - about 10-15 minutes away. But we're excited!

Yay! I'm glad things are moving along with your possible new house. :) That Cami is adorable, and Warren's face in that picture cracked me up.

P.S. I am so impressed that you didn't lose it while watching her eat your vacuum goo covered apple. Sick. Sick. Sick.
