Grandpa Hair

"Dad, you have grandpa hair.  Because it's silver.  It's not REALLY grandpa hair.  It just looks like it."
 - Beckham, age 4 driving in the car with his daddy

Belly Ache

Beckham told me yesterday morning that he wasn't feeling well.  He said his tummy hurt and that he needed to lay down on the couch and watch Curious George.  So we did.  He asked me to lay by him, so I did.  Then he said, sort of nonchalantly, "Mom.  Last time when Ethan was sick Dad bought him a box of doughnuts and they didn't make him throw up. Actually, they made him feel BETTER!"
Honestly, the kid must be losing his edge because he couldn't even finish the sentence without smiling.  He could see I was onto him.  But Mom is no sucker.  Dad is usually no sucker, either.  But if doughnuts are involved, all bets are off and he would have been out the door asking the 4 year old if he wanted cream filled or jelly.  Good thing Dad was out playing golf that morning.  Good thing! (ok, so maybe I AM  the sucker after all...)
I'm really not a jaded golf widow.  He's pretty darn good to me, and I know it.

What you do in New York at 1:00 am if you aren't clubbin' it.

New York was completely fabulous.  But one of my favorite memories is of my sis-in-law Kirst and I coming back to the hotel, completely exhausted, and yet staying up to watch Antoine on you tube, laughing 'til it hurt and hurt some more. I'll post more about our trip, but enjoy this first!
Just for the record  - if you haven't already seen it, this was an actual news story.  The remake they did at the end is just for more fun if you can take it, home boy.

Change of Subject

After coming home from church one Sunday, I asked Beckham how his day was.  I said to him, "Becks, how was primary today?"  to which he replied, "Don't you mean, Don't you want to make me some cake?"

Today he told me that I was so lucky that I got to go with Auntie on my own trip to YOU NORK.  That's right, You Nork or bust this weekend, baby!  Wicked tickets all booked and I can hardly wait...!!

For all the moms out there....

This video was on MSN's home page today.  As a news junkie, I love to come across stories like this.   Stories that remind you of what is important and that God is wanting to help us and will deliver miracles sometimes.
Teary eyed for me.  Enjoy!
