it's that time again! this makes wednesdays so much more fun. ;)
*check out this bib i saw at target (why, yes, i *do* spend a lot of time there) the other day:
it makes this blogging thing seem so passe, right? oh, well. passe or not, i'm going to carry on blogging. because i love it. where else can i spill all my verbal diarrhea? ;) (p.s. i totally just spell checked "diarrhea," and i canNOT believe i spelled it correctly on the first try! whohoo!)
*on that note, moving on. look what else i found at target:
they were full when i found them. this also may or may not have been the third empty bag in my house in the past two weeks.
i love easter season not only because we get to celebrate and rejoice in Jesus' ressurection, but also because the best chocolate candy EVER fills the shelves. i know, i know, mini eggs are small in the big picture of easter, but they are just so darn yummy! far yummier than and superior to those widely available lettered chocolates. i think it's something about the candy coating to chocolate ratio. and the candy coating itself...it's thicker and crunchier.
oh how i wish mini eggs were available all year round.
i'd better stock up. oooh...do you think they'll go on sale after easter???
*speaking of obsessions, choi boy's elmo obsession has been taken to another level. he looooooves all things elmo. but, i'm a mean momma who won't let my child wear character clothes or shoes. unless they're vintage-y looking. i know, i'm mean!! i told you! but, i figure, while i have full control of his wardrobe, i might as well take advantage of it, right? anyway, i steer clear of the character clothes when choi boy and i are out and about, but last week, my mom and i took him to m@rshall's and while my mom was pushing him in the cart, he started screeching, "eh-mo! EHHHMO!!!!" my mom looked around and saw that he was pointing to a package of elmo underwear. she said, "this?" and cb vigorously nodded and reached out for it. she handed it to him (because that's what grandma's do -- give their grandchildren whatever they want), and cb spent the rest of our time at the store hugging and caressing a package of underpants.
and no, i'm not taking that as a sign that cb is ready to potty train. no way, jose.
*oh, momma...it's so fun to see her as a grandma. she just adores choi boy and it's so sweet to watch her be all mushy gushy with him. watching her with him reminds me of when i was little. and i have to say, my mom was right about a lot of the things she told me when i was younger. for instance, i *do* totally regret quitting the piano. and my teeth *did* shift back a bit because i failed to wear my retainer faithfully. and if i eat too much chocolate, it *does* go right to my midsection.
*but, my mom was also wrong about some things...for instance, your eyes will *not* stay crossed if you take a picture while crossing them (um, i'm slightly embarassed at how long it took me to figure that out). and it is not necessary for you to use extreme caution when looking through the onions at the grocery store because a poisonous snake will *not* come out and bite you. also, eating sweets before dinner will *not* ruin your appetite. i know, because i ate a whole plate of sushi after polishing off that bag of mini eggs. ;)
*this would probably freak my mom (and probably many of you) out, but look at this picture of choi boy:
yes, that's a trash can on his head.
i know, i know, it's probably gross, but i promise, whenever there *is* trash in there, it's inside the garbage bag that fully covers all of the fabric. once the garbage bag is out, choi boy snatches it up and walks around with it on his head.
he thinks it's hilarious.
i also find it hilarious.
*i can also tell from that last photo that choi boy's forehead is REALLY large, like could-have-its-own-zip-code large, and he would not look so good with a receeding hairline. good thing he won't have to worry about that for a while.
