The best part about having an apple for a snack is that is takes him about 30 minutes to eat it. We call this the "slow burn." It's nice to find something to occupy him for a full 30 minutes.
OMG, how good has this season been? I totally meant to blog about it, but then Brian and I fell behind, finally caught up, and now have just been speechless with the amazing display of culinary talent. I was going to rename the season, "Top-Chef: Dead Behind the Eyes" after the whole Jennifer R-flame out, but then Fabio brought it right back on course with his admission of his pet turtle (he calls her "Princess.") And the episode where Antonia and Mikey find out they are cousins? Reality TV gold. Love it.
I think we all know Richard wins (I hope, at least), but wow, what a run.
Scotty also recently developed a fascination of one of my cookbooks. I can't wait for the day he is able to don his own chef's apron and whip up something delicious for Momma.
That would be Jill and Chris' little Alexa, who currently resides in Denver, CO. Perhaps you remember Jill as a past guest blogger? Well, Alexa celebrated her one-year birthday this week, and was also kind enough to send Scotty his very own Duke t-shirt in anticipation of the sweet Sixteen. What a thoughtful little girl. Scotty was touched and so excited to wear his shirt, despite the miserable performance Duke put on that night.
Aside from both boasting incredibly kissable cheeks, we're hoping Alexa and Scotty have a future together. What, you may be asking, happened to Vegas-girlfriend Samantha? Well, at a playdate a few weeks ago, Scotty squawked really loudly and made Sam cry. I'm pretty sure she broke up with him. (we're still working on his social skills.) After that, during a little Greco-toddler wrestling, Sam pinned Scotty multiple times and may have wounded his little baby ego. So, they are kind of on the outs right now. Enter Alexa, the Duke shirt, and a potential for a long distance relationship. I'm not sure what's going to happen, but I'll keep you updated.
Who knows...this might be the first ever toddler love-triangle. Move over, Brangenlina. Welcome to...Scam. Or Scalexa. Or something like that.
A is for...
Because I leave for my little Moms-staycation in approximately 3.5 hours. And not a moment too soon!
The Spanx are packed,
I'm ready to go...
