What's the best way to spend a minute or two? Laughing.

OK- here's the story (which took place about 2 minutes ago).

Superbad (freakin' hilarious) ended and I started to reach for the remote when I heard **boom, thud, thud...** along with a little of Trevor whining. He wasn't crying- just a sort of loud fuss.

My supermom instincts wanted to calmly walk in to his room and make sure everything was alright. Guess what I did... Just that.

His room was pitch black so I flipped the light switch on. What do I see? A stunned, adorable little boy standing in the middle of his floor with a blanket wrapped around him. He looked up at me with his eyes barely open- it got very bright very fast in his room.

He just stood there, and I just stood there. I smiled and he fidgeted a bit but mostly he just looked up at me with the cutest furrowed brow and confused face ever. I chuckled.

"Did you fall out of your bed, my son?"

::Trevor nods::

I glided over to him and parked myself right in front of him. "Are you OK?"


"C'mere... " I wrapped him in my arms and he just sort of slumped there- like he was still asleep. Seriously, it was the cutest thing I have ever experienced. Heh.

I gently pushed him back up into a standing position and grabbed his wrists and wriggled his arms. "See! Everything is where it should be and working properly. Are you ready to get back in bed? No falling out this time- but if you do, I will come help you back up."

He looked over to his bed and very softly said, "Ya...".

I tucked him in and he laid there. So sweet and wonderful. His eyes glazed over but he tried to keep them open. I rubbed his head and looked at him. He was smiling. He smiled the entire time I was there looking at him. His eyes closed and I walked to the light switch. Took a deep breath- and flipped it off.

Then I called my husband who was (and is) thankfully on his way home from work.

Now, I am here writing this. It was so cute. So freakin' cute. I don't know how else to explain it.

Nothing of Importance

I really don't have anything to report. If I did- it would just be complaining about something. Frankly, I don't want to bring myself down and I don't want you to hear my whining (right now anyway, haha).

Alright, like I said nothing important. Just the usual. Trevor says, "Come on, Mommy" now. It's pretty cute.

He is still in his repeating phase. He repeats EVERYTHING he says about 7 or 8 times before stopping. Sometimes he does it more. This is even after I respond after the first time something is said. It seems as though he really wants to make sure of 2 things: 1) We completely understand what he is saying and 2)he wants us to really get his point.

Trevor has moved away from his obsessive compulsive tendencies but sadly- I miss them. It was kind of nice to see him put his things where they "belong" even if I didn't ask him to. Not that I blame him for losing these traits- the world is just so much more interesting now that he understands more.

In other very unimportant news- I am so happy we have netflix. It has allowed me to see movies and shows I otherwise would have never tried to see. I really enjoy the UNLIMITED instant watch. That is so awesome. Wow, is this a boring blog entry or what? Sorry. I just need to fill my time with something, and writing seemed like the thing to do a few minutes ago.

Now, I'm not so sure.


Oh wait! I do have something to talk about... my trip to Boston in September!! I am going with Katie. Just she and I. WOOHOO! We have a super list of things we are going to do, and more than likely it will keep growing. We are going to stay for about 4 or 5 days- squeezing everything in that we can. We are even going to Salem for all the witchy history.

OK- I have to attend to my rampant son now... he insists that graham crackers are tons of fun to crumble.

Old Sacramento

Nathan, Trevor, and I ventured out this Sunday to Old Sacramento. We wanted to spend the whole day indoors doing nothing, but I am glad we changed our minds.

I remember why I loved it so much as a child. So much to look at, hear, smell, and experience. It's a lot more boring when there isn't a festival or "jubilee" going on- but it's still Old Sacramento.
