Public Office?

February 24, 2009 at 3:18 am 2 comments

The other day Aidan and Michael walked in the door laughing. Apparently, the conversation in the truck had been quite entertaining. Michael told me later that Aidan said that “Mom is the mayor of the house!” 

I’ll do my best to serve the people. And try to stay out of jail. (Sorry, Frank Melton joke, I couldn’t resist.)

Michael told me that he told Aidan he was the city councilman of his room. Then he asked Aidan what he could be and Aidan said, “Dad, you’re not anybody. Just a regular citizen.”

Poor guy. I say he’s over the public works department. Don’t they fix stuff? 

Aidan will be 6 in 2 weeks. I’ve been working at trying to get his invitations done for his shindig. This little Macbook is pretty awesome, but without PhotoShop or PrintShop, you really can’t do that much when it comes to card making! 

But his invite will have this picture on it:

This was the best bad guy face I could get. This was exactly 15 minutes before he started throwing up and I said, “Oh my goodness! You must be sick!” Then I felt bad for making him dress like a cowboy and pose for me, but I was in a time crunch, you know? Surely you do. 

Aidan has started making up songs. I say “started”, but I mean “started making up songs with a tune”. He’s been making stuff up all of his life. But now there’s a tune, so it’s a little easier on the ears. 

Anyway, his latest musical creations are so lyrically astute, I thought I’d share. (and let’s just say right now that the boy lacks nothing in the assurance of family love department!)

My mom, my dad, they love me so much. 
They love me, they love me, they love me so much.
They think I’m so great. They think I’m so great.
And my sisters love me too. They think I’m the best big bubboo.
I love my family because they think I’m so great!

Now, if you think I need to continue building up the guy, please let me know, and I’ll start laying it on a bit thicker.

**The blog post about my son has ended…now let me clarify the header. This is a picture from our first year of marriage. I think we’d just had our one year anniversary. We were in New York and pretty footloose and fancy-free. As of now, until I can get my kids to get a picture where their heads are all the same level and will fit into the tiny rectangle that the header lets me use, this is the best I can do.  

And…let me just apologize for the randomness of the Oscar post. I really don’t feel good. And after the show was over, both girls started throwing up in their beds. I washed sheets all day. And Molly continued to throw up every fifteen minutes of last night. All night. Then she ran fever. It’s been a rough one. So random may be the theme for a bit, since coherence seems to have left me. 

Michael’s back at the printer, working on those blame invites. I had better go help, bless his heart. I love that dude.

    Random posts are the best. Don’t apologize.

    I like the header picture. I think you should keep if for a while!

Welcome! Hope you enjoy the blog. I know nothing about the internet, except that I like it a lot. So there's nothing fancy on here, just thoughts and pictures. It's the simple things, right?
