He's an actor, folks!

First watch this one hulu:

(My sister sent this to me because of the number of times TJ says "mom mom mommy" throughout the day. After watching it first, I let him watch it with me a few more times. Then he wanted to act it out. Seriously! Now watch the video below:

Nicknames, Compliments and Oldness

TJ is all about nicknames lately. He comes up with a nickname for everything and everyone. For instance, "Mom - Dark Vader's nickname is Dark Vade. Mom - your nickname is, uh, hmmm, I don't know. Maybe, Mmm for Mom." I especially like that one.

Last night, TJ told me that when he grows up, he wants to be a fireman and marry me. He was sure to tell me that he would wear all his gear and hat...and pick me up in his fire truck. Of course, I melted.

TJ slept at my parents' house last night - Tim and I went to Halloweekends at Cedar Point. Holy cow, we hadn't been there in years and year and it made me realize how old I am. Why, you ask? Let me point out a few reasons:
       Number l.   I didn't get the memo to wear Ugg boots to an amusement park.     
       Number 2  If I had gotten the memo, I wouldn't have been able to wear them. The lack of support
                         would have screwed up my feet or my knees. See what I mean? I'm old.
       Number 3  I felt sick after each ride.
       Number 4  My back hurt after each ride.
       Number 5  I missed my kid. Badly. And can't wait to bring him there with us someday.

I guess getting old isn't so bad. It means I get to spend my time with more people!

Our TJ's hair is orange. No doubt about that and we're not even sure where it came from! Ironically, he is in love with Halloween this year. Even more surprising than that? The boy loves decorations. Anything orange, black bats and monsters, white ghosts and fall scarecrows thrill him. The funniest part about that is that his Daddy is about as far as can be from that interest. Tim is definitely a minimalist in his decor type and I like a handful of decorations for the seasons and holidays. With TJ, however - the more the better! I'm going to have to get myself in gear leading up to the 31st, Thanksgiving and Christmas. If anyone sees cool decs on sale, you know who to call! : )

TJ is really loving school since it started a few weeks back. When I pick him up at the end of the session, he runs to me with his big backpack on and says, "Mom!!! We learned about shapes...or...I know all my senses! Guess what projects I brought home!" It is so much fun watching him learn. Mostly, it's fun watching him LOVE to learn.

I filled out my first permission slip last week and felt weird. Geez, it must mean that TJ is really growing up. And that must mean that I am growing up. Or growing old. Yikes!
