singlet? oh i think not!

I had the pleasure of signing my 6 year old son up for wrestling last night. Two nights a week, while supervised, he can thrash around on a pad with other boys and burn off some of his pent up energy that comes with the cold of winters of Wisconsin. When filling out the form there was a clothing option section. Singlets were an option. Oooh no!! Not on my kid! I think they are scary on high school boys and grown men, let alone my son. The thought of one conforming piece of spandex encompassing the trunk of a six year old boy makes me quiver in repulsion. And that is not even addressing the comments that would come out of his mouth about the idea... let alone my husband! So I happily checked the T-shirt and shorts option. It was a safer and happier option void of any quick gag reflexes. Thank goodness it was not a requirement!!

who can resist Yoda??

May the force be with you!! Couldn't resist putting my friend Ann's son in my blog. He is delicious and makes a most handsome Yoda. And he doesn't have green squishy feet!

rain, rain and more rain

I am not quite sure what to think of this November. It has been in the mid to upper 50's which, I admit, has been a nice change, but it has also been very grey. The past two mornings have been rainy which makes it very difficult to get out of bed. Grady on the other hand has been up at 5 am the past three mornings which has also hindered the sleeping process. I am sure the cold weather is quickly approaching but I am looking forward to snow and would LOVE a white Christmas for a change!
