He’s a modern, metro guy

That’s what I told my husband when Gavin wanted to take his man-bag (aka purse) to all the stores with us yesterday. If it keeps him quiet at the store, I’m down with it.

The little mermaid

Genevieve fully believes that Halloween is coming any day now. She decided that she wants to be a mermaid and has been asking repeatedly to go shop for costumes. Yesterday I took the kids to HomeGoods (it’s like TJ Maxx, but only home stuff) to shop for a chair – and lo, and behold, what do they have but little girls’ costumes including a mermaid costume. HomeGoods, of all places! Genevieve went nuts and it was only $16.99 so I bought it. I got a size 4/6 and it *barely* fits her – I hope she can actually wear it by Halloween!

Sad but cute at the same time

Gavin must be going through some sort of an attachment phase. Last week when I was at work, David called and told me that Gavin had gotten out our little photo album that has pictures of Genevieve’s birth. He was sitting and looking at pictures of me and crying. David asked him why he was crying and he said that he missed Mommy. 😦 😦 The next day was Saturday, so I was home and David was at work. Gavin dug out a toy cellphone that the kids have – it has some prerecorded messages on it and you can also record your own. David had a message on there saying “I love you Gavin, you little stinker.” Gavin went and curled up in the hallway and was listening to it over and over and crying again. I asked him what was wrong and he told me that he missed Daddy. The next day when David was at work, he was looking at the album again, only at pictures of David. I hope he snaps out of this soon, because I already have all of the working-mother guilt that I can handle. I can’t take any extra! 😉

Here’s a bonus pic of him passed out, one of the 14 total minutes he slept out of 10 hours of drive time. 🙂
