He's also said his first word - "Uh-oh." I guess he also says "Mama" and "Dada" but he doesn't associate them with anything. But he's got "uh-oh" down. This morning I found him scavenging through the bathroom garbage can. I said, "Jack! No!" in my stern voice, to which he repeatedly replied, "Uh-oh. Uh-oh." I'm sure he was trying to convince me it was an accident.
Speaking of words, Isaac's had a few interesting interpretations/pronunciations of words lately. While Blue's Clues was on the TV the other day they were playing with Magenta. Isaac excitedly informed me, "Blue's writing an note to Vagenta!" After I regained consciousness from laughing to death, I corrected him.
Also he was talking about an election - I have no idea why - but instead of "election" he said "erection." Jeremiah was quick to correct him on that one....
Are you sensing a theme?
Kate asked a few days ago on her blog what I would spend money on if I had any to spend. Yesterday, while blog surfing, I found this post. I absolutely fell in love with this laundry room! My laundry room is in the basement, which is not finished. If I had the money I would finish the basement. My laundry room is fairly large and I envision it as a storage space as well. I would put in some large tile for the floor and shelves for food storage around the perimeter. I have created in my mind a multi-functional folding/laundry table with enough gadgets to rival a Swiss Army knife.
In the other room in the basement I'd like to put in a den/library. I'd like a built in desk and built in bookshelves. I'd like track lighting in the ceiling and a sleeper sofa in case we ever need an extra bed for
I'd also pay for a gym membership and a hot personal trainer - because, let's be honest, if there's no food or hot guys involved, I'm probably not interested.
I have to admit that the ways I would spend money are not quite as classy as Kate's dream-purchases. But I'd probably also plan a great family vacation to make some memories for my sheltered, underexposed kids.
While I'm talking about money, I went to Target Tuesday night and spent $50 on summer clothes for Kenley. I didn't even look for anything for Isaac, in spite of the fact that his birthday is in 3 weeks. No excuse other than girls' clothes are more fun to buy. I bought 2T shorts and 3T shirts because I wanted the shorts to stay on her little bum and I wanted the shirts to fit for a long time. In retrospect, that was stupid. Now her shirts are going to be long and cover her shorts. In which case I should have just bought 4T shirts and called them dresses for the next two years.
Don't feel bad for Isaac though he's getting a red bike for his birthday and some other great gifts...that have not yet been purchased...or decided.
