Five Minutes for Mom is  having a photo contest called The Kid in You and looking for the Spirit of Childhood…this is the photo that came to mind of my hubby at the Bronx Zoo.  My daughter wasn’t even one yet at the time so he was forced to play with all the cool stuff at the children’s zoo by himself LoL.  There’s lots of very cute photos to check out over there!  Wish us luck :)!

We are just about off to Mamo and Papa’s for a big family BBQ but I had to stop in and write about this.  Its an unusually breezy day today so Scottie took Abbey out with the Strawberry Shortcake kite we bought months ago and never used.  Before heading out the door Abbey grabs one of those micro-bead pillows from her room and announces she is bringing baby outside too.  Now, this is not a pillow that looks like a baby….its just a round, red, pillow.   All over the house we have dozens of real babies (dolls) but today, the red pillow was her baby and her Dada was doing everything he could to convice her to bring one of her regular babies outside instead of her pillow.  I think he was afraid the neighbors would think she didn’t have any dolls and was having to make due with a pillow LoL.  In the end though Abbey hugged her pillow and brought it outside, and Dada took several breaks from the kite flying so she could go and check on the baby.

Ok, so the pulled pork was delicious!  I was a bit worried when it started cooking and it smelled SO spicy, but it had just a bit of a kick…perfect!  After having it for dinner both Friday and Saturday nights, Scottie and I ate the last of it as a midnight snack on Ritz Crackers Saturday night LoL.  I will definately be making that again. 

The stairs:  They are going amazingly well (I keep waiting for some disaster to strike).  The bottom set of stairs are done now and the carpet is ripped up on four of the stairs on the upper set.  My next project will be somewhat smaller I think…I’m looking at knobs and handles and trying to pick one for the kitchen cabinets…here’s the one’s I really like…

They actually sort of match my silverware too LoL! 

Let’s see, what else…I havent’ talked about my little one too much lately.  I finally got to see her ‘swim’ on Friday.  My MIL has been telling me how amazing she does in the pool with her tube on (she wears one of those tubes that has an attached tank top type thing so she can’t slip through).  Now, I consider myself a fairly laid back mom.  I’m not too much of a worry wart…except when it comes to the pool.  Nana has a deck that comes right up to the edge of the above ground pool and there’s no fence around it, so for the last three Summers, at every bbq I’ve spent the whole time blocking the entire edge of the pool that comes up to the edge of the deck, which is a considerable length…I just never sit down LoL.  So I’ve been hearing how well Abbey is doing in the pool and I finally got to see her in action.  She really does look like she knows how to swim in that thing.  She actually moves her arms and kicks like she’s swimming and will venture out to the middle of the pool to rescue a toy and drag it back to the edge.  And of course, I’m not the tiniest bit biased LoL.  I really have to get some pictures of her in action.

Ok, I think that’s it.  Oh, I mentioned last week that I should plan meals week by week.  I’m forming a list in my head for this week so I’ll try to get that up tomorrow.
