5 Randoms...

Today...



1. Hudson fell three seperate times. First, landing facefirst onto the corner of Bosco's wooden dogbed. Second, landing facefirst onto a plastic stepstool (you'd think plastic wouldn't do any damage, but it cut his eyebrow, cheek, and inside his mouth). And lastly, facefirst into the bathtub (empty, thank god), reaching for his rubber duckie. Yikes. Not his day.



2. I tried to make a healthy version of pancakes (using mainly cottage cheese and eggs, with just a smidgen of flour and sugar). They were gross. Healthy shemlthy. If it weren't for Rob, I would exist on anything fastfood, and Hudson would exist on Fruit Loops.



3. My parents left this morning after a quick visit. Hudson was so happy to see them. He brought them both their shoes (and the right ones too!) when it was time for them to go. They got a kick out of that!



4. The guy at Home Depot flirted with me. Funny how that doesn't happen when you have a toddler hanging off of you.



5. I missed my nieces' 5th Birthday Party...reminding me how much it sucks having family live in all different cities.

kinda settled...

Well...we've been in our new place in Ottawa for just over a week now...and we're almost all unpacked. It feels so good to be in our own place again. We're all mostly settled in. It took a little longer for Bosco (who kept trying to sleep in our bed with us...and yes...we let him), but even he's settled now. Yes it kinda sucks being in a rental again, after owning your own house...but it's a really nice rental. It's funny but last night we had a meat delivery (a farmer actually delivered some hormone and chemical-free-grass-fed beef right to our door), and he said something about seeing how the "other half" live (referring to our neighbourhood). We laughed out loud, telling him how far we are from being the "other half"!!! But, yes, we live in a nice, prestigious neighbourhood, right off of a golf and country club. I'll post some pictures as soon as our place looks a little neater.



yes...Hudson is actually sitting on Bosco. For real. He's getting to be quite the naughty toddler. Yesterday he kept screaming at the top of his lungs. So we kept saying "no screaming Hudson", only to have him scream in our face. When it was obvious that saying "no" wasn't working, every time he'd scream, we gave him a "time-out", making him stand in the corner. Then can you believe he screamed again...and then walked staight to the corner ALL BY HIMSELF, to give himself a time out?!? WTF?!?
