Blue skies smiling at me...

(Now I totally have that song in my head, just from typing it in as the title...)

This awesome tote bag is on its way to my house:



Now, if any of you out there are Obama fans, please don't be a hater. We can all be adults and agree to disagree if that is the case (cough, cough, my choice is the right choice, cough, cough). Before Governor Palin came along, I had given up hope on this election. I wanted to barf any time either of the candidates were on TV promising this, that, and the other, and I was secretly plotting my relocation to Canada. But then Palin came along and made it all exciting again! And this rockin' tote bag will be the perfect way for me to show my support. And carry my lipstick in. Haha. Get it? (Oh, and I found it via etsy, of course, the only place to find the coolest items.)

And another package is on its way to my house as well (the costume, not the little boy in the picture, because if another toddler boy arrived on my doorstep, I'd have to politely decline and say that we're all full up with toddler boys here):

I actually found it today at a costume store, but it was missing the hat. When I returned home I thought I'd better go ahead and order it online, and when I first searched for it, several places were already sold out! I finally found it available and ordered it right away. Whew. I cannot wait to take pictures of my handsome lad in it, and for him to show all his friends at the post office his outfit. They will be tickled pink!

It's time for a little bragging...

My boy, the darling one whom I often describe as being a bit on the mischievous side lately, blew me out of the water today with his sweet spirit. Not only was he a very good boy today at school (for the second day in a row), but after school he had to go get his flu shot at the pediatrician's office. I didn't forewarn him what we were doing there, but, of course, he figured it out once we were back in the room where he saw the nurse pull out the needle. His first concern was if he would have to take his shoes off (definitely not high on his list of favorite things to do in life), but sweet relief washed over him once he was assured they could stay on his feet. Then the shot came and went in his leg, quicker than a flash, and my brave sweet boy never cried. He almost did, but the promise of a red sucker immediately afterwards swayed him towards a smile instead of tears. He asked why he got a shot, and when I told him it was medicine to keep him from getting really sick, he smiled at me and told me he was a "beeeeg brayse (big brave) boy." Yes, indeed. So right now we are skipping the nap and going straight to a treat of "Toy Story 2" in the DVD player.

Today's thing to be thankful for:

unbelievably gorgeous sunshiney weather, which is even supposed to be continuing all the way into next week. We're talking bright blue skies, highs in the upper 70's and low 80's, and lows in the 50's! Perfect for putting the top down on the convertible every day (the boy LOVES it) and for taking long walks at night.
