A Little Wednesday Pot Pourri For You...

Longtime readers know that Quinn spent a lot of late 2007 and early 2008 dressed like this:


It's been a while since Quinn has worn his Wonder Pets cape and duck head, but he found it in the playroom the other day. Which resulted in the funniest thing ever, at least according to Quinn:



It's a panda bear! In a Wonder Pets costume! [Stimey rolls her eyes. Quinn laughs hysterically.]

*****

In other news, guess how many days my kids have been in school?


And how cool is it that Sam got off the bus wearing these? I'll be bummed out when he's too cool to wear things like this anymore. I guess at least we'll still have the panda bear to dress up.

Also?

CSI: Stimeyland

Ooooh! Ooooh! I got to meet Thrift Store Mama today! We met for lunch, and she and her adorable daughter Esther were wonderful. Quinn was a total nightmare and I somehow had put myself in a situation where I didn't have anything left to bribe or threaten him with to get him to be nice.

This is mainly because I let him eat a brownie while we were waiting for our lunch to arrive, so I couldn't threaten to take away his dessert. Total rookie mistake. (I mean, I guess I could have forced him to puke it up, but I try to save that for the second time I meet someone.)

He did warm up once we took them outside the restaurant and let them run back and forth on the sidewalk for a while. Quinn and Esther had a really fun time chasing each other and making automatic doors open with the mere force of their bodies. Amazing.

Thrift Store Mama is not only super-cute, but really nice. And she took some of my old clutter off of my hands, so I double-like her.

  1. I really miss that duck head walking around the neighborhood.

  2. What on earth were you doing at a crime scene?!

    Those are GREAT glasses!!! Patrick just came home with some worksheets they had done, and they had a 100-snack party (making graphs with little snacks like cereal and marshmallows), but nothing funky like that!!!!

  3. That last picture needs some explaining!

    You seem to attract crime scenes/fires and the like.

  4. Okay, okay, we weren't actually at a crime scene. It was a Chinese New Year's parade. For some reason they used really foreboding tape to tape off the street.

  5. Tell Quinn I think he's funny. I LOL when I saw the wonder pet costume on the panda. Cute.

    I also laughed at CSI. I'm glad to hear you weren't really at a crime scene!

  6. I totally know what you mean about Sam and the 100 day glasses. A. got off the bus wearing a 100 day headband from school. She said she wore it all day except at recess. I thought it was awesome that she was still enough of a little kid to wear it proudly but it also made me sad for the day that is coming all too soon when she will be too cool for something like that.

  8. LOL, a panda in a Ming-Ming costume, that IS hilarious! Its like a pet, pretending to be another pet! ;)
    Little Bear had her 100th day of school this week, but they had the day off for Teacher's Institute. Does that make any sense?????

  9. Will just dressed Stella up in his spiderman costume, and I had to threaten to prevent all that nonsense from coming to school.
    He also had to show me his animal-dressing cleverness four or five times.

  13. Also a member of the Thrift Store Mama Fan Club! And I have been known to let my kids eat sugar packets while waiting for food in restaurants.

    I hope Quinn hasn't completely given up the duck cape. I always look for him when I am out and about!

  14. I've seen a lot of kids in capes - but never with a duck head... Now that's the sign of a truly creative mind!

  15. I wonder what will happen when Joey finds his Little Bear hood. I'm planning on cleaning his room this weekend. Well, at least I'm going to glance at the room. Kinda.

    And if it helps, I never outgrew wearing awesome glasses.
