* our resident "cowboy small" has traded in his hat and horse for a superhero cape. The last several nights our favorite superhero "the flying squirrel" has escaped from his crib numerous times. We have resisted buying him a bed until he figured out an escape route, so the time is here! The kicker was when I found him standing on the railing getting ready to perform an actual flying squirrel impression. yikes.

*"the flying squirrel"
strengths: melting you with his blue eyes, consuming large amounts of goldfish crackers at a single sitting, climbing anything, saying "no" until you want to scream, finding any speck of mud within a 50 mile radius, and changing the temperature in the house at any given time. (see photo below)
weaknesses: car seats, baths, and any mention of bedtime.
arch enemies: ellakate, betsy and the cat that poops in our sandbox.
|the flying squirrel has been known to bump the heat up to 80 degrees. |
his momma thought she was going through the change!
*the next time you visit a car lot, do not be surprised to see ellakate. She is perfecting her sales/stalling/negotiation skills lately. She was in serious trouble last night and we informed her a spank was on the horizon. Her response to zack..."it sure hurts my heart and my love for you when you spank me" nice. Our parental stance crumbled and she escaped a spank, not to mention she also sold us a 92 Chrysler LeBaron.
