I’m not sure how this happened or who gave them permission to get older, but time keeps marching on and they keeping changing. (On a related note, The Pip Squeak is currently enamored with the word “No” and The Wild Imp told me to “Zip it” last week).
Anyway, I’ve got a double-purpose for this post. Not only to share their cute little birthday faces, but also to tell you about their most favorite book: BOY + BOT by Ame Dyckman & illustrated by Dan Yaccorino.
It is SUCH a favorite in our house that they had a BOY+BOT+BIRTHDAYparty.
So, the YAmazing Race ended on Monday, but my power decided to shut itself off before I could choose a winner.
Let me tell you, a few days without electricity and I’ve got a new appreciation for Tesla and Edison. Also, I’m apparently an Old Dog because I could NOT break myself of the habit of flipping on light switches– despite the fact that my other hand held a flashlight.
Though I may not be able to learn new tricks, I do give myself mad points for repurposing the glow sticks we’d bought for Halloween.
My top 3 uses for glowsticks:
1) Locating door handles.
3) Schmidtlet tracking devices.
Anyway, now that you’ve admired my genius idea and my offspring, let me give you what you’re really here for: The Winner!!
