Because it’s pretty amazing when he’s only 18 months old!!

I am just barely awake this morning at quarter to 6. Ethan is full of vip and vigor. He practically jumps out of bed and pushes the bathroom door open. I warn him that he better not play in the toilet water. He doesn’t. Instead, he goes up to the toilet, pats the seat of it, and says “pee-pees” and then he proceeds to grab himself.

I asked if he needed to go pee-pee. He looks at me with a frantic look in his eye and again says “pee-pees”. So I strip his PJs off, take his diaper off, and I plop him right on the big boy toilet. And then I waited. Waited for something- anything- to happen. But after 5 minutes I got tired of crouching and holding him on the seat. We decide to watch Elmo instead.

On our way to the living room, he sees his little potty. And again he says “pee-pees” while he grabs at himself some more. So I put him on the training potty. But he doesn’t go pee-pee. Nope. He pooped! He was really excited about the whole thing (as was I) and was clapping and saying “big boy, big boy”!!!

Now. I don’t know if he’s early or right on time…but I was seriously impressed.

Pigeons are gross

No offense to anyone who actually likes pigeons...but seriously? I would never allow them to land on me unless I knew for a fact that they've been properly cleaned and vaccinated.

Yesterday, Ethan, my friend Jeremy, and I went to Pismo Beach. While we were walking on the pier, there was this lady with her two daughters who were probably 10 and 12 years old. The mom was proudly snapping pictures as the two girls let pigeons land ALL OVER them to eat the bread that they had in their hands! AGH!! HOW GROSS IS THAT??? Don't they know that pigeons are like flying rats???

Anyhow, aside from that, we had a great time.

I realize that I'm not that great at keeping this blog updated. You know why? Cause my life really isn't that interesting. And I COULD exaggerate and make it seem like I have all these funny anecdotes, but I really don't. Maybe later I'll do a day in the life of me, so you can see just how uneventful a typical day is.
