Where I've Been

A lot has happened during my blogging hiatus. Here are the highlights of the past couple of weeks...

*Hunter's been training for the upcoming Rocky: The 43rd edition film....

I think he's a pretty good stunt double for Rocky for the far away shots, but he's way too cute up close......so we've given up on that dream.

*We played a fun game of hide-n-seek one day, and I obviously came out as the winner on that one because, well to be honest, my son has a poor grasp on how well he can fit into certain hiding places...

...also the loud whining that came soon after Hunter realized he was stuck kind of gave away the game.

*One word. Seven letters. V-O-T-I-V-E-S

Hunter's new favorite thing is pulling the wicks out of all of the unused votive candles in the house. Luckily, I only have one wickless candle in the drawer right now. I'm sure that wick will show up in the vacuum soon enough.

*Ladies and gentleman, the duck has left the building...er I mean nest. I know y'all are totally disappointed, but be reassured in the fact that NOONE is as disappointed as I was when I got to the playground and all I saw were some remnants of the nest and bits of cracked egg.

*And probably the most exciting, or maybe the more appropriate word would be traumatic, thing that has happened to us, is Hunter's first fight.

Actually it wasn't much of a fight. It went something like this...Hunter's playing with "a child" (apparently when your kid is harmed by another kid at school, they won't tell you who the bully is...probably so you don't go to their house to retaliate...not that the thought ever entered my head. ever.). The child bites Hunter ON.THE.FACE. Hunter starts screaming and crying. The teachers - and supposedly all of the girls in the class - run over to comfort him with "hugs and kisses". (Not kidding about this. That's what was written on the form...comforted with "hugs and kisses". I love that. Warm fuzzies.)

James will be starting self-defense classes for toddlers in our home next week if anyone would like to join.

I am proud of how whinyless Hunter was once I came to pick him up. If you had this battle scar, you'd whine, right?And just for dramatic effect, a close up...

Hope to post again sometime before January. I am checking y'alls blogs (if you have one) and I LOVE reading them even I haven't commented much lately. I promise to start commenting more!

When did he get bit? Maybe Vanesa and Zack should go have a talk with the child so he knows not to mess with Hunter! Vanesa said she'll give him a piece of her mind when she does. LOL
