Book Time

Another book review!   A quick one!

You may or not know the comedian Michael Ian Black.  He's most known lately for his commentary on the VH1, I love the 70's, 80's, 90's etc etc etc.  He's always been hilarious to me, and now I love him even more.

He wrote a book called "Chicken Cheeks"

It's a simple book - focusing on animal butts.  Yep...I said it...animal butts.

D thought it was hilarious when we got it from the library.  He had it memorized very quickly.  And laughed so loud when we read it the first time in a restaurant that people were turning around to see what was happening.

Famous pages are "kangaroo keister", "deer rear", "turkey tushie", "duck billed platypus gluteous maximus" and D's favorite "guinea pig buns".

It was a great book.  Hilarious as the animal stacked their booties on top of eachother to be able to reach honey up high in a tree.  I won't tell you how it ends. :)

So Guess What?

We're so excited!  D loves the idea of a boy baby.  So much that he was telling us that he didn't want a girl baby.  So, it's a good thing...IT'S A BOY!

(And we're not concerned they read it wrong this time - it was pretty crystal clear!)

No this is not a political post.

This is YOUR chance to weigh in on whether or not you think we're having a BOY or a GIRL.

We're finding out September 18th.  So you have until the 17th at midnight to vote....see the poll on the side.

Ninjago COSTUME?!!?

Seriously Lego folks, you're missing the market.  WHY OH WHY don't you make Ninjago costumes?

D has moved his decision from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle to Ninjago.  (Granted, still in the ninja family). I've discovered that there are NO Ninjago costumes.  So I may have to buckle down and try to make one, if D keeps this as his decision.

For reference - here's the Ninjago guy D wants to be...the blue one, Jay:
There are some crazy parents out there who have crafted large helmets out of buckets and ducktape and paint and all sorts of good things - then styrofoam to make legs so that their kid looks like a Lego man.  However, my child is 3 - he will not put up with a bucket head - and will not be able to get in and out of the car in styrofoam.

So after some more research I thought, okay I can craft this...
Then I found this:
I mean, I'm not gonna do much better, right?  I should just plan on this being the costume and save myself a month of frustration and shopping, where I'd ultimately end up with something that would look nothing like a Ninjago, right?

There's still a part of me that wants him to have a Lego head.  But maybe we'll just get a Lego head container and make it into a candy bucket to drive the point home.
