In case you were wondering, My Doctor (We'll just call her Dr. Obvious) gave me the secret to weight loss today: she told me to exercise and eat smaller portions of healthier low calorie food. If only I had known this sooner! Thanks, Dr Obvious!
Jacob's teacher told me that she promised to stop dousing Jacob in gravy so his friends would stop biting him. (My response? Oh they are just getting him back from when he was a biter!)
Mr. Calamity: He's cute enough to bite.... figuratively, not literally, that is!
Bought a Twin Mattress for Drew today; learned that a piece of twine will hold a mattress and box spring from flying out of the back of my Ford Escape.
What did Drew like best about his new bed? It made him bounce higher than his old bed!
I found the perfect garbage can with a lock at Bed Bath and Beyond. I went to buy it and the clerk asked me what kind of dog I had. I told him "er, it's for my son."

On a more serious note:
Something about your parents going through surgery (as my Mom did today, to repair her torn rotator cuffs(?) or being ill really reminds you of how mortal you really are, and how much you truly depend on them. I love you Mom, feel better soon!
My Mom and a young Jacob, before he turned into Mr. Calamity. Doesn't he look like the picture of innocence here?
