How I know I live with a preschooler Tuesday...

With his best bud, Tyler

With his teacher, Mrs. Roz

How I know I live with a preschooler? Because today was his first day of preschool!! He waved and said 'Bye Mommy!' No tears were shed. By either of us!

Music Monday

Obsessing over Florence + The Machine right now. Love this album! When I can't decide which song I like best, that's a good thing!! She just plain rocks and the music is great to cook/bake (I crank it for that!), hang out or work out to. And I know I mentioned this before but she really does look like a fairy in this picture! Just add some wings and she is good to go...

Oh bananas, I just ordered P90X... It is gonna kick my (getting bigger) butt and I need this desperately since I am at the heaviest I have ever been. Apparently, I must wear flattering clothes because people keep saying I'm 'in shape'. Um... yeah. Except for that spare tire around my gut (it may be a mountain bike tire but it is still a tire!) and my expanding thighs and butt. This past weekend even the flabby arm thing came up as 2 friends and I were waving to our hubbies and kids on a boat 500 yards away. You know, 'Man, I hate waving because my fat is waving as well.' All 3 of us agreed. I wish I could blame this on birthing a kid but I don't even have that as an excuse since we adopted ours! So I am making the commitment to change this and am going to P90X it in shape with the exercise and food. Ouch. I can hear my butt already screaming for an Almond Joy instead of another leg raise...

And, no, I am not posting 'before' photos!!

How I know I live with a preschooler Tuesday...

So a couple weeks ago, I took AJ to daddy's office so I could pick up his phone. He fell asleep in the car on the ten minute trip to his office and did not want to get up and out of the car until I told him that he'd get to ride the elevator up to his office. He turned to me and sleepily said, 'The alligator?'
