Living with a 2-year-old is a little like living in a country where you sort of know the language, but the idioms really throw you, so you only understand about 3/4 of what is being said.

Ben (emphatically): Mama, what are you doing in the heck?!


Ben: Do you wanna see my rocket blast off super fast?

Mama: Yep. Show me.

Ben: OK, then I need to put on my slippers!

Mama: ???


Guess what I'm getting for my birthday (which is in 16 days for those keeping track)? This.
It is in route from upstate NY to San Pablo, CA and it is taking FOREVER to get here. I actually ran outside to the UPS truck this afternoon and asked the guy, "Me? Do you have a package for me?" I considered handing the poor Kodak point-and-shoot to A. and having him take a picture of me with the UPS guy. But no - UPS guy couldn't deliver.

I don't think I'm going to get it before this weekend, which is a bummer because we're going here to celebrate my b-day. We went a couple of years ago, B.B. (Before Ben), and it was fun and I love autumn and Halloween is my favorite holiday and pumpkins are my favorite squash, and I CANNOT WAIT. I'm so excited. Oh, and the hotel has a hot tub.

2. I think you need to come back with a pumpkin hat or maybe one of those jellyfish looking thingies this time.
3. Enjoy the hot tub!
