  1. I'm wondering why there's a half eaten pear on the ledge outside my living room window.
  2. We don't have a pear tree.
  3. I don't let Noah eat food outside on the window ledge.
  4. I wish our bodies didn't need to sweat.
  5. I picked the worst day to run errands.
  6. My babies get kinda cranky running in and out of stores in the blazing heat and humidity.
  7. Okay, I get kinda cranky wrangling two babies in and out of stores in the blazing heat and humidity.
  8. I wish our sweat smelled sweet.
  9. No, it would still be gross.
  10. Vanilla bean paste is so expensive.  I must order it online.
  11. I'm trying to figure out when I became Izzie's servant.
  12. I don't remember her going deaf either.
  13. Noah doesn't mind the heat so much.  He just sings and talks and sings and sings about everything.
  14. Apparently, Izzie melts in the heat.  Seriously, she looks shorter.
  15. My baby's going to be two tomorrow!!
  16. Giraffe cupcake liners are so freakin' cute.
  17. After a 20% chance of rain and blazing heat with no cloud in sight, I went out and spent 20 minutes watering my garden and flowers.  10 minutes later an ominous storm cloud loomed just over our little area and it down poured for about a half hour.  I was soaked just going from the house to the truck.
  18. Starting off sweaty, then getting soaked from the rain, then getting sweaty again at the gym makes for one icky feeling Momma.
  19. No nap means meltdown starts shortly after dinner.
  20. Beast could eat his weight in food if I let him. 
  21. I really don't know why he doesn't weigh more.
  22. Never mind.  I just changed his diaper.
  23. My son is trying to scale his play kitchen.
  24. This new growl of Izzie's is not very becoming.
  25. No is the new Yes?  Umm, I don't think so.
  26. Noah needs a transfusion of soy milk, or maybe an I.V., but he doesn't like needles.
  27. Shots make him angry, not sad, angry
  28. His checkup in his a couple of weeks.
  29. He has to get four shots.
  30. When I say, "Keep your hands to your own body."; and she replies, "but I'm using my foot."...Is she being sassy or is she making a valid argument?
  31. Noah starting spinning around in circles right before bedtime; screaming like a banji and laughing like a hyena.
  32. Does this concern me? No.

I was laying on the couch and Izzie was sitting next to me.  One of her favorite shows came on.  She jumped and elbowed me in my girly parts.  I yelped and told her she hurt Momma and that she needed to be more careful.  Her response was, "But I'm so excited that Fresh Beat Band is on."

Noah has completely destroyed the living room.  He's been walking around picking up things, playing with them for a minute, getting frustrated, then throwing them around the room.  He just tried to climb on top of his play kitchen.  I'm not sure what his intention was; maybe throwing himself off the kitchen and body slamming his toys?   There is a massacre of puzzle pieces all over the living room.  It looks like the battle of puzzle pieces vs. legos.

Bed Time
