Unplanned Haircut

You would think this post would be about a haircut that Boog gave to himself, but it's not. It's a haircut that my sister gave him. A haircut that I'm pretty upset about.

My youngest sister said the other one was going to cut his hair this morning. I was okay with that since I wanted to get it trimmed. I said she could go a little shorter than usual.

That is not what happened. What happened is she cut off all his hair. I'm so mad that I can't even explain it. And I'm more mad that she did it without asking me or even telling me. I had to get a pic of it from a friend. And she knew I didn't want it that damn short.

I'm considering taking her Christmas present back in exchange for a bag of coal.

Christmas Party

My part-time job had a children's Christmas party last weekend at a bowling alley.  All children up to age 12 were invited.  They had pizza, sodas, cake, goody bags, mini nerf footballs and all the kids got a gift.  It was pretty cool.

Boog was happy to be there and kept asking if it was his turn to bowl, so we got him some bowling shoes and gave it a go lol.  Luckily they had ramps for the kids to push the balls down, and had the gutter guards up.

Then Santa showed up...and this is a child who won't talk to strangers, takes forever to warm up to new people and even people he hasn't seen in a while...Guess who RAN to Santa for a giant hug and even talked to him later about his "boo boo" - yeah, this kid lol...

And his gift was a tabletop electronic Spiderman pinball game!  Mommy just has to get batteries for the darn thing...but the good news is that he can still play with it without the batteries - it's just not as cool lol.

Boog fell asleep in the car and got carried into the house where he woke up briefly to ask me to snuggle and promptly fell back asleep for a couple hours.

A boy and...

...his (auntie's) dog...

Sometimes you just need a little something extra to get you going in the morning.

Jarryl is learning his shapes at daycare and through his shows like Team UmiZoomi. He really likes octagon, which he called "octogums" for a while. He knows that a red octagon mean STOP.

This morning we got him the car to go to daycare. He usually gets in on my side and then climbs back into his seat. Sometimes he stops to drive. This morning he stopped to point out my triangle. Then we looked for other shapes for a few minutes and found circles and a rectangle. Then he had to drive before we could leave.
