His world.....

or MINE?!?!

My world is "smashing the childhood out of him."
I always wonder where he gets this stuff from- I certainly don't want to be a childhood smasher. So we are jumping into his world for a day- HERE WE GO!

I have a flashing red number over my head- telling the world that today I have 25 lives. Wait, make that 24- I lost one because he had to explain the red flashing number to me, these thing aren't free!
It is noisy and energetic and full of imagination. Every second of life has something exciting to pretend or explore. Doesn't matter where we are- life is an adventure!
I lost my next life at the pool- because I was sweating like a pig so I got into the water (which I rarely ever do) and I didn't know that water would take a life. 23 left!
Only I have a problem with this because he is in the pool and he still has a flashing red 6 over his head- so I want to know why he keeps a life and I lose one- doesn't seem fair. After a long, long explanation from him on the subject I learn that it is age related- I started out with 25 lives because that is how old I am- and I drop the lives quicker than he does because I am old and I should already know the rules.
Sounds okay I guess! Except I want more lives because I am really 40 something-
"Not gonna happen" -
So, I am a little embarrassed to be walking around with a flashing red "23" over my head- Oh, wait. Its a 22 now- I lost a life because I scared him!
It was totally worth it- Made him scream like a little girl!
Part of me wants to get rid of these lives as quickly as I can- but the other part is a little afraid of what we will be doing next in his world---

Please don't be envious of my

Jayce has been begging me for months to make him a super Hero costume.
It probably wont happen anytime soon so he took matters into his own hands and designed a costume- all I had to do is sew it together!
He was very impressed with my skills but opted to make his own mask-
This is an amazing outfit- made completely out of construction paper and stapled right on for a perfect fit!
He decided to add a pocket- to hold the fingernail clippers that he has been carrying around for days- except for today, when he was asked to leave them home. He put them in the fridge for safe keeping! "Nobody will look for them in there." I think he's probably right about that- because when I found the clippers in the fridge I wasn't actually looking for the clippers.
And because I am SO AMAZING at sewing costumes, Jayce has designed a set of mechanical arms that can attach to his back-pack. I will be sewing them next- NOT!

Bird sitting and JACOB!

We had the privilege of bird-sitting for the Butters.
Amigo and Obi are adorable parrots. Amigo is sweet and loves to snuggle and be held. Obi is a mean bugger- but he says the funniest things- Like "OUCH, Don't bite me!" as he is trying to take a bite out of you. Then he baits you- puts his little foot up like he wants to be held and says in this sweet bird voice-"Come here, come here." Of course he doesn't want to be held, he just want to bite you! Fun stuff!

Yes- its all about TEAM JACOB at our house!
Well- for me anyway!
I have seen the movies twice- LOVED it in a weird, shallow, immature way!
That screaming when Jacob appears with nothing but his shorts on- that might of been me!
