- The day Wade left for Los Angeles, I was feeling very sad about missing my partner and also at the thought of being alone with two small crazy people for several days. When I got the mail that afternoon, there was a box in the mailbox. The label was addressed to "Allison Chlamydia Wilson" - so I knew that whoever sent this box had a masters degree in awesomeness. Upon opening the box, I found these sunglasses, courtesy of my cool friends Becca and Zach. If you know them, then you are lucky. If you don't, then I am sorry because you are missing out.
|I moustache you a question|
- Over the weekend, I made this marshmallow fondant princess frog for my friend Kim. Audrey is bff with her youngest daughter, and it was her birthday. This frog was actually fun to make, and there was no crying or swearing, or kicking over folding chairs like a pro wrestler (ahem. Harry Potter Lego birthday cake incident.)
There was leftover fondant, so I let Julian play with it, and he made Pikachu, and some bees. He's rad.
- Speaking of how rad Julian is, he was in 2 student films at the university where Wade works, and they have been nominated for a Student Academy Award. What the what!!! The major one is this film, "Birthday Psalm", because he was the main character. He is only 8, yet already so much cooler than I will ever be.
- Audrey is so much fun, and a total nutbag all in one. She is so very two years old, and sneaks away to color on every surface in the house, and is suddenly fearful of the bath tub (despite being a former bath lover) because she swears, "Monssers! Coming for me! Eeeeeeee!!!" Today, I tried to make her take a nap in her own bed because she is getting cooler all the time and is no longer a neversleeper. The girl sleeps through the night now, and takes naps almost every day. I will take this over her former 3-hours-a-day sleeping habit any day. So, I was in her room and lying on this little fold-up futon on her floor, and I told her that she needed to climb into her bed, and I would hold her hand so she could fall asleep. This is our routine. She says, "Hand!" and we hold hands, and she falls asleep. But today, she would not, and would only say, "Sit up. Audie stowwy." She wanted to sit up in her bed, and tell me a story. It was like this: "One-saponna tieeeee, Audie anna monsser paying." (Once upon a time, Audrey and a monster were playing.) It went on like this for too flipping long, and she never took a nap today. But she was crazy cute, so that helps.
