Out of the mouth of babes

Mohawk Daddy, monkey and I were in the living room the other day. As innocent as ever monkey looks at his dad and says "daddy are you an momma married?" Daddy tells him no we are not and that is why my last name is not the same as theirs. Monkey looks his dad right in the face and says "so when are you guys going to get around to that?" - Some reaction from a four year old.

Ninja Monkey

For Halloween Monkey wanted to be bat man for that we had a costume consisting of PJ's and a mask he got at a friends birthday, totally affordable - as it cost us nothing.

Then today we are milling around TJ Max and we find this gem. Monkey of course fell in love with is, so daddy says we should just try it on him to see if it fits, and as you can see it fit quite well. I think the best part is the fluffy muscles on the little noodle arms of my monkey!

Happy Halloween!

I had a dream

So daddy came home today after being out of town for a week. We are riding in the car to pick up monkey from his grandmothers. He turns to me and says "I had a strange dream the other day. I dreamt that I was reincarnated as a pencil eraser." (first I hope he knows he can not be reincarnated as anything that doesn't have life) Then he says "It was terrible people would put me down and pick me up and it was gross getting all dirty erasing stuff." - You have to give him credit for his creativity!

Mohawk Monkey is much like any child he wants to grow up to be all kinds of public servants. This is a wonderful pic of him at a safety fair near our home. Chief Monkey on the fire truck. I think it is very becoming for him, even though he is actually afraid of the fire truck.. too loud!

Then he decided he wanted to be a police man and now he has decided he would like to be an army space man, and be the first space man to walk on mars.

He will have an opportunity to see a shuttle launch soon hopefully this will keep his space man dreams alive.

Mothers Night Out

Hold onto your socks boys we had a night out with a crew of moms - out for the first time with out their children, most in five years!! And then there were the poor two husbands other wise known as DD.. yes it is true two sad guys that listened to this group of woman talk about labor for an hour!! And we wondered why we never go out with kids. We followed this uncomfortable situation with a more fun conversation of what is wrong with my man... yep it was more uncomfortable for the ones that had to hear the critique.. if your reading this honey don't worry I was very nice.

Now don't get me wrong this group of woman has become fast friends seeing each other at drop off and pick up every day, but there are only some things you can learn over a few car bombs.... And we sat there with this crazy conversation and generational gap for the whole four hours while our children were playing. Then like a flash we jet out to be the best mother we can be picking the children up on time, only after we went the wrong way and counted down the time.. it was close we even had to run a little. It is always a competition to see who is the the best mom.. what have we come to?

Let me introduce the family, the cute one in the apron is my only son Mohawk Monkey. But don't let the hat fool you daddy has a Mohawk too.

I am hoping to use this blog to document moments in my monkeys life so I can reflect on them as he grows. I want him to know where he comes from and what he has come thru.

This picture is an example of my desire for Mohawk monkey to have everything in life. Especially special moments with is dad doing "guy stuff." This is a picture of monkey and dad building a bird house.

In these tough economic times it is amazing to see there still some companies with big hearts. The Home Depot allows children to come in and build a project for free the first Saturday of the month. Lowes lets children do similar projects but they say they are for children in 2nd grade or older.
