The Naughty Life

Morning Wood

While Love was taking a nap yesterday, Bode and I went upstairs so I could shower while he played with trains in his bedroom. When I got out and went to check on him, I found him just like this…passed out, sucking his thumb, no pants on, at the foot of his bed. He napped for two hours like this.

My favorite way to spend late afternoons in the summertime: hanging out in our back yard. Super low maintenance, laid back, music playing all over our yard, kids getting filthy in the dirt, usually no pants on for some reason…and, whenever I can get someone to sit on my lap for more than 60 seconds, I get to read books with them. My favorite.

The ‘ole jam my finger up my nose and FaceTime my big sister call.

Got her.

What it’s like to get a card from your coach at CFNE when you visit our box for a day: some nasty smudge of something that could be anything from a booger to a stool sample.

Dinner with this kid on the deck…and, Legos. Always Legos.

image

Ben had a dinner meeting with Tony Blauer tonight, so I got to have a bonfire with the kids after bath time.

Our kids are obsessed with flash lights. How could they not be? Flash lights are awesome, especially when you put them in your mouth.

So weird for this kid to not start school with all his buddies today over in Natick. Nobles starts on Tuesday, so I got to lock this guy up in CFNE for a little while this afternoon. This is about the extent of Jonah’s exercise on most days. He’s starting cross country soon, though 🙂

This little trio is something else: Deb, Maya, and Love. Danger.

Deb, you’re killing it. Great job spotting, gurl. Great.

This stuff could change my life. It’s super mild-tasting, has 9 grams of protein, almost no fat or carbs, and is far easier than making bone broth yourself.

Date night with my man while Jonah and his buddies babysit. This was the scene when we left.

image

In case you didn’t catch Jonah’s expression, and Love psyched that we are leaving her with 4 studs.

Ben took me to Sycamore in Newton. Great little spot with good food, good drinks, and a great atmosphere. He couldn’t remember who suggested it, but it was perfect. I just love that Ben declared Wednesday nights as our weekly date night…and, he forces me to stick to it. I LOVE date night, but when he got home tonight I was so overwhelmed with stuff in the house that I asked him if we should just skip it. He said no way, and got me to rally. And, it was awesome. Love that about him.

Look, I just don’t understand boy anatomy sometimes.  Bode is constantly saying to me in the morning, “My penis is getting so big, Mommy!”

What the hell am I supposed to say to that?

“That’s awesome!”

“Good job, kiddo!”

“I see that!”

“I’m so proud of you!”

“Keep it up, buddy!”

Seriously.  Am I supposed to look at it or not?  If I look at it, it’s weird.  If I don’t, he gets upset and won’t let it go.

And, what’s that all about anyway?  I don’t even get morning wood.  What is it even?  I have no idea.  I’m a girl.  I’m sure this is one of those things that most women know for some reason, I just don’t.  Ok?

It can’t be sexual; he’s FOUR.

If I had to guess, I would think it’s just what happens when boys wake up and they have to pee after sleeping all night.  But, then when I think about it, why wouldn’t that happen during the day when they have to pee?

So, what the heck causes it?  I think it’s time for me to figure this one out.  I’ve got two sons.  I just can’t believe I’ve gotten to this point in my life and I, literally, have no idea what it is.
