Some Things You've Missed

Remember that book that Atticus loved and would read for hours, that I got from the library? Yeah, here it is. He loved it so much, he wanted to read it in the bath. When I took it back to the library, I set it down on the counter, in all it's sogginess, and told them, "You may have lost a book, but it clogged my drain. No one wins in this kind of situation." He destroyed two library books this round, and cost me a load of money. All the money I had been saving by borrowing books for the book club, and just reading in general...gone.

Also, some pictures of Atticus on his birthday. We went to McDonalds. He was king of the slide that day. He was yelling at anyone that tried to go down. Some lady sent her kid over to me to say sorry for making him cry. She had no idea that my little baby was the one that picked the fight.
These are pictures for Tom. Hazel wanted you all to know that she was celebrating her win in Raving Rabbids. She opened a new level, you gize.

Those are great stories! It's so hard to remember things like that after time.

Opening new levels on the Wii is a big deal. I'm so glad you captured that on film.

I know that was painful for you to have to pay for those library books. I'm truly sorry. But I am not sorry for the beautifulness that is that boy Atticus. Freakin A. If he shows up missing do NOT come looking at my house. He won't be here. Pinky swear.

Please tell me you really said that to the library lady! What did she say?

It looks like Violet is feeling better?

Atticus

You entrusted a library book to a baby? Just be glad you can't borrow toasters from the library. This story would have had a much different outcome.
Atticus=way cuteness.

I can't even count how many library books we now own. Mostly because we "lost" them, then found them years later--after I'd already paid for them. I keep telling myself I will never check out books again, but I do.

Happy Birthday Atticus! I love him!

Atticus is such a cutie, that he can ruin as many books as he wants.

^^just tell the librarian to send grandma the bill.

Cristin said...

Did you show the librarian Atticus because I think she would have just let it go as a cuteness write off...I mean seriously, who wouldn't put a book in the tub if he was lookin at you with those eyes???

I want to know why no one is raising the real issue here. Who gives a baby a book in the bath tub? Why was a baby near the bath tub unsupervised? I am going to have to take him away from you now. I'll give you supervised visits.

I want to know why Violet still has her band aid on her arm when she was given an i.v. a week ago. I'm pretty sure you can take it off now, I doubt it will bleed.

I'll bet that band aid smells worse than her breath.
