Ugh! It's back!

The insomnia, that is. I'm really tired of this (pun intended). I just want to be able to sleep!

Easter Parade

Today, the mall had an Easter parade. For some reason (I'm pretty sure it was written somewhere), I thought it was a bike parade. We decorated Tru's bike the best we could. Then when we arrived, there was only one other kid with an actual bike. Everyone brought wagons and strollers which are A LOT easier to decorate than a bike! There were prizes, which we obviously didn't win, and Tru was upset that his bike was "not the greatest". :( Oh well, we will know next year to bring a wagon!
Since I forgot to bring the camera to the parade. Here is a pic taken in our driveway after we got home.

Half Birthdays

About a week ago (I know, I'm falling behind), we celebrated Tru's half birthday. He is now officially 3 1/2. He doesn't forget the half either whenever someone asks him how old he is. I had a cake mix in the pantry, so I told him I would make him a cake. He said he wanted a Blue's Clues cake. Hmmmm....ok. So, I put some blue food coloring in the icing, found some Blue's Clues bath toys, ran them through the dishwasher and stuck them on top of the cake. He was thrilled! Then we went to Schlotsky's with some friends and ate outside since it was so nice. We even sang "Happy Half Birthday to You". Since I forgot to take any pictures of the cake (or the celebration), I will post a couple of my favorite pictures of Tru on his very first half birthday (aka 6 months old).

Look what Tru got!


Truman was invited to a bike riding party, and I realized hmmm...maybe my kid should have a bike by now. So, we went to Wal-mart and bought the cheapest bike they had. I'm not sure his pediatrician would approve of him riding, but considering he can only go a few inches at a time, I think we are safe. I have no idea how to teach someone to ride a bike. This is frustrating for both of us!

My self esteem booster

I'm so glad I still have Tru around -for many reasons, obviously! Last night, I went to check out a new gym. He's three so, of course, he asks me why I'm doing every single thing that I do. When he asks why I want to join a gym, I tell him, "So I can be skinnier". Being the wonderful son that he is, he replies, "But Mommy I like you just like you are right now!"
What a little blessing!
