Hopefully this never comes up again....

While watching a nature documentary, they stated that elephant seals spend all of their time "fighting and fornicating."

"Daddy," Jacob said. "What does fornicating mean?"

No pause. "It means fortifying, you know, like he is guarding his perimeter." Mr. B said this  quickly and matter of factly.

So just for future reference in a play date, Jacob's language is not his fault, you can blame Mr. B.

*Also, this is one of the many reasons I hate nature documentaries.

Vacation- or as I found out- a "trip with the kids"

We just went away to Lake Michigan for a few days for "Vacation". It's in parenthesis because it was anything but relaxing. Traveling with a toddler is hard. Traveling with OUR toddler, this particular toddler is excruciating. I am exhausted. It's going to take a few days to recover. The last day of our trip we went to Michigan's Adventure and it was crowded, COLD, rainy. Never again on a Saturday, y'all. It started rainy right after we got there and I just wanted to turn around and leave. The (older) boys had a blast, though. I may have cried a little at the end, because I felt so stressed and overwhelmed by my youngest.

Still, we got to bond with my Sister's family, and that was FUN. Watching Matthew discover Lake Michigan was FUN. Even the rainy day with all the card playing was fun, even if not so much for the children. (Thank goodness we had a do-over day planned for an upcoming weekend.)

And this:

Makes it all worth it. Until next year, Pentwater.
