Cal was eating some of his candy hearts leftover from Valentine's Day. He asked me what they all say. One of them said, "First kiss." He said, "Oh! Like 'If you want a treat, you need to first kiss me.'" I obviously haven't taught him about romantic love.

80s Karoeke night at the church

Not everyone dressed up, but we are still a bunch of fuuuiiinnneee ladies.

I included a couple more pictures of myself because I think they are funny. This one looks like my whole body was standing still except for my arm. Maybe I'm doing the robot?

And there I am way over on the right. I ditched everyone else and am dancing away. What the...? We are doing Summer Nights from Grease and I was the back-up boys, so maybe I'm doing a boy dance?

Becky asked for it...

I'm not sure why these are so blurry. That's why I didn't put them up to begin with. They are extremely short, though.

Cal's Music Program

I'm a little teapot.

Cal kept bowing in the middle of songs. And especially at the end of each song. I have no idea why he was doing it. No one else was.

Conversation with Cal

For lunch, I gave Cal a meat and cheese sandwich, which he's not too fond of (would prefer p.b. and honey). He wanted a chip, so I kept bribing him with chips if he would take bites of his sandwich.

Cal: May I have another chip?
Me: If you take another bite of your sandwich. Or you can take three more bites and get three chips.
Cal (eyes lit up): Or I could take a million bites of my sandwich and get a million chips!
Me: Yep.
Cal: But I couldn't possibly have that many. Cuz then other people would start eating my chips. Cuz they would be all over the place (big swooping hand motion).
Me: And your tummy would get really full.
Cal: Yeah. I would turn into a great big chip-ball. Then I would look like my favorite guy on Lego Star Wars [x-box game he plays with Eric]. [not stopping for a breath] Can we go to Legoland sometime and try to build my favorite guy from Lego Star Wars?

First of all, this last week has been insane. So I haven't been posting. Sorry to all my fans out there (or maybe all of the boys' fans).

Second, Isaac is almost completely potty-trained. Today he started telling me when he has to "potty" instead of just holding it as long as possible waiting for me to take him to the bathroom. However, he poops in his pants multiple times a day. I hear this is normal but is there anything I can do to speed up the process? He's only 2 and 3 months, so he doesn't totally understand what's going on. This is what I know: a) pooping is easier on a little potty. b) m&ms work wonders. c) Pooh is nasty.

Anything else? Any suggestions?
