Congratulations Harrison!

We had a great time in Lexington witnessing Harrison take his first communion.  So proud.


I would never make it in New York City

Friday, April 27, 2012

I took the boys with me downtown to pick up my race packet for the miniMarathon. Not thinking much about the journey we headed to the convention center after I picked Wip up from school.  He fell asleep on the way there (something he never does) and I had to park about two and a half blocks away (nothing for a New Yorker, right?).

I decided to put Duncan in the stroller and hold Wip as he slept on my shoulder.  About ten steps later I was back at the car trying a new plan because Wip was just too heavy.  A gentleman yelled "you need a double stroller" (thanks for the tip buddy). I put Wip in the stroller and Baby D strapped in the Ergo. Then Wip woke up. I finally got everyone settled and off we went towards the convention center less than three blocks away.

The two and a half blocks felt like ten miles, but we made it.  After checking out a big horse statue that completely made Wip's day (see below), we arrived at the packet pick up.  Simple. We were ready to go back to the car only to discover that they make you walk through the "expo" section (where everyone has booths and tries to sell you crap) to get out. Wip wanted to get on my shoulders and Baby D made it to the stroller. We were golden, right? Wrong. This "expo" was the biggest labyrinth I have ever tried to go through. It was ridiculous. Every time I would ask how to get out people would tell me  "the end is that big white wall" that looked like it was miles away.

Out of the convention center and on our way back to the car we were stopped at a crosswalk. There was some sort of reuniting going on between a group of men (all smoking cigarettes with the smoke going directly into our faces). One gentleman mentioned how "eight years of prison was enough for him". We did a slight sprint to the car. Once I arrived at the car I realized I was so frazzled that I did not pay the meter, but thankfully this is Louisville and not New York City because I did not have a ticket:) The end.

Turning Point?

Thursday, April 26, 2012

Wip developed a diaper rash tonight. I was hoping that a light bulb would go off with him and he would understand that diaper rashes don't happen when you use the potty. In trying to explain this to him he broke down and started sobbing. I asked him what was wrong and he said "mommy, please make my body stop hurting".  Poor little man.

In other news...the other little man is doing great!
Rockin' some purple eyeshadow?

Everything is going to be alright

Dad Day at Temple

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Patrick joined the Turtle class today for Dad's Day. The morning was filled with parachutes, circle time, and gifts of picture frames. It was a great morning!

Four Stitches Later...

Monday, April 23, 2012

One of my favorite Mollie Mulloy Creason stories is the one about how she hijacked her father's cell phone and put on the message "This is Pat Mulloy, and I beat my kids".  Of course it was not true, but after my brilliant move at Duncan's daycare this afternoon, some people might wonder if I beat my kids.

Not thinking that he was not strapped in, I removed his tray of the seated chair to put him in his car seat.  Not even a split second later he fell out of the chair (hard) and landed on the corner of the table. We headed strait to Kosair Hospital (on Brownsboro) while he giggled the entire way. Two and a half hours and four stitches later we were home resting. He was such a brave little man and this mommy is going to be feeling bad for a long time over this one!

The ones that got away...we could not do it all, so while we were not able to make it to Jack and Cooper's birthday party, I am sure it was tons of fun!

Sidewalk Chalk Talk

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Today before our "rest" time we played outside with sidewalk chalk. Wip was teaching Duncan how it works and Duncan was trying to put each piece into his mouth. When our neighbor Ann stopped over, Wip pointed out the horse that "we" just made. She asked what the horses name was and he proudly told her "Lady Gaga". I thought she was going to fall over from laughing so hard.

Sweet Miles

Miles Dones came over to visit his pal Duncan. He is getting SO big. I must say he is the perfect blend of his mommy and daddy.  Such a sweet boy.



Happy Birthday Caroline!

We had so much fun at the super hero party to celebrate Caroline's birthday!  It has been so much fun watching this sweet girl grow up.

Cutest Super Hero Party Ever (please notice the capes on the chairs)

Listening to instructions (that Wip did not follow:)
