Just a few random notes from our lives recently. We are taking a family Little Gym class and it is DARLING. I love to see Max doing the activities! I have tried posting some videos of it. Yes, I know they are FAR more interesting to his mother... but he is cute. I think the video is at the end...
Glenn is pretty determined to get on a game show while we live in LA, and his first attempt was the show Wipeout! Those of you who know Glenn well don't need to be told why this appealed to him so much. May he never grow out of his love for adventure! Well, after standing in line (through rain!) for nearly three hours, he and his buddies were asked one question: Why do you want to be on Wipeout? Apparently being a fit, Caucasian, non-weirdo male answering that you'd like to take on the obstacle course is one sure fire way to get sent home. And so they were...
(In the pic, all those circled in yellow went on to the next level of interviews, while those in pink- aka Glenn's group- were sent home) Way to go for trying Glenn, Matt, and Sam!
I felt so badly when I heard the news that I made an obstacle course for them here in the backyard called 'Wipe-Up' based on the obstacles of motherhood. Such events included the Diaper Dash (Finding ten diapers and frantically searching for the one with the Golden Nugget... it was a chocolate nugget), Car Seat Chaos (one-handed carrying of a car seat loaded with college texts while jumping over a circling bar and being pelted by opponents with balls), and Bedtime Bench Press (had to read a page of bedtime story while doing push-ups). They ROCKED! Glenn won hands down, even when we made him play again with handicaps. Congrats Love, I knew you had mad parenting skills!
We were watching our wedding video the other day and the nagging question kept pestering me... Can I still wear my wedding dress? Happily the night ended with smiles, not tears :). Glenn was awesome to help me play dress up! I guess we never grow out of needing to feel like a princess.
Yes, MAX IS READING before he's potty trained... early on one, late on the other! :) Way to go buddy- we're proud of you!!!
Thanks for all the thoughts on Sunday activities- they were awesome! I am seriously excited for the Sabbath to come this week and give them a try.
It's been almost a month now, but thanks to Brooke and Eric for coming to visit! (This is the world's shortest video- it was supposed to be a picture!!!)
