important things to know

 This boy turned three on Sunday.  Dad gave him these Hulk gloves and Mom gave him a shark poster and dinosaur.  Plus a chocolate cake.
 Lux now goes to church.  This was her first Sunday wearing an outfit from Aunt Alana.  She liked the music but didn't like the temperature of the building.
 I threw away Larry's boots. 

While I've never been one to say no to my kids' outfit choices (as seen below...You want to wear a pirate hat to Smith's? Fine. Superman cape? Go for it. Green frog boots in August?  Great.) I had to put my foot down as these were falling apart.  Literally.  Larry would walk and they flapped around.  Seemed bad for the ankles.  But I was sad to see them go because they are SO LARRY. 
And finally my 30 day goal of no treats came to a halt today (day 19) unexpectedly as I sliced the last pieces of cake for the boys tonight.  Let me first say that I resisted Tod's Mother's Day gift of TWO POUNDS of See's chocolates.  I even avoided cake on Larry's birthday and all day yesterday.  However, tonight I gave Larry a piece, gave Lennon a piece, then eyed the rest of the cake just sitting on the counter...and the rest is a blur.  Maybe I blacked out, maybe it never happened but I ended up with no cake left and hiccups.  Which just shows that this is a real problem. 

Starting again tomorrow.  The good news: Cake is gone.

19 days??? You have three kids now, I think you need the sanity that sugar brings. At least that's what I tell myself. ;)

Oh Kristin...if I ran a fraction of what you run in a week I'd eat all the cake I wanted too.
