random-nings…you know, just for funsies

Bristel was perched on the couch…looking out our big window…

and suddenly started yelling…

Mommy…a daddy robber’s coming! A daddy robber’s coming!

Took a minute to figure out she meant a daddy “robin”! As in the bird. And not the guy trying to steal our Samsung.

**********

Toby’s AllStar team were the champions of their first tournament! And word on the street is…it’s the first time our town’s AllStar team (of any age) has ever won a tourney!

First inning warm ups Captain Slugger took one to the face. Rewarded with a bloody and broken nose to compliment his trophy! Ahhhhhh…the memories of boyhood. We’ll laugh about this someday…right?!

****************

Quite possibly the best compliment I’ve gotten. Ever.

I have a crapload of respect for you!”

Taken from a recent email…that made me smile.

**********

The Scene: Toby walks into the living room while I’m sweatin’ to my morning workout.

Panting Me: Wanna join?

Gawking and Head Shake NO him: Not with those crazy things they make you do!

**********

The Scene: I’d kicked their summer boredom boots outside to play. Toby’s whining at the (locked from the inside) screen door. After a few minutes I finally shuffle over to see what was wrong.

Whiney Toby: Mooooooom…Bristel took MY worm!

Victor Bristel: Hahahahahahaha – cackling as she runs around the corner pudgy palm wrapped snugly around Lucky the worm.

Me: turned around and locked the other screen door!

**********

Counting down the days til’ Bibi comes to babysit…

I mean visit!

*********

Oh last thought…

I’ve been thinking about renaming my “random-nings” to “just for funsies”. Maybe I’ll poll it?

  1. I like the new name…..it's cute.

    Bristel sounds like quite a character!! While my older two will look at a worm, neither will touch them. Which surprises me about Haylee since she's our tough-nut.

    And…..ouch! Poor Toby! If that was me with a broken nose, my eyes would be crossed in pain!!!
