John Lee Hooker up to something


Quotes of the day…

  • Tractor is upside down (after turning it upside down)
  • This pad is for changing / This pad is for laying on (during a diaper change)
  • Don’t talk with your mouth full (Mrs. K takes credit for this–obviously, since we have taught him no good manners)
  • Boat goes in to the dock (no idea where this came from…maybe he watches Love Boat at Mrs. K’s)
  • Be careful with the ride on toy (neither Mama nor Mrs. K claims this one, but someone must have said it to him…maybe it was Barky)
  • 3B is ready to eat now (this is often the case…and I think I may regret teaching him that most of the time when he’s saying “first,” he means “now.”)
  • Doesn’t close very well (referring to a flap on a book at Mrs. K’s)
  • Thomas is turning around, spinning, puffing smoke (apparently Thomas has been hanging out with Paula Abdul)
  • John Lee Hooker plays the blues / That’s John Lee Hooker, playing the blues (repeating what Papa said, unprompted, 10 hours later, as 3B made music with his ladybug xylophone)
  • Listening to John Lee Hooker in the car at Mrs. K’s (putting together what we did with where we were)
  • John Lee Hooker up to something (attaching toy tractor to some other piece of equipment or inheriting Papa’s sense of humor–sorry about that, 3B)

    now, you are ready to take him to the movies so he can narrate the whole thing for the audience! Oh, I assure you, it’s TONS of FUN!

    …and now you know, no secrets! no surprises. everything you do in his presence can & WILL be reported.
    Gage once told the cashier at the grocery store, “Mommy pooped in the potty. Yaaaaaay, Mommy!” & wildly clapped his hands.

    Oh yes, it only gets more hilarious!

  • OH.MY.GOODNESS.

    I just scrolled down, and saw the broke-down mini-cooper that you guys have.
    Um—yes, we have the same one. Completely broke-down…wheels missing, part of the roof is missing…

    I am definitely taking a picture to share with you guys.

    It’s just a damn shame that we don’t live closer together so our children could tear us sh*t together.

  • L-P: Let us know when you’re going to be at the movies, and we’ll be sure to sit across from you. Then everyone can get the narration in stereo.

    Of course you have Mama’s Mini Cooper–you have excellent taste, as demonstrated by your paint color choices. They do seem to be fragile cars, though, eh?

  • Hook ‘er up!

    Awfully young to be rolling out the lowest form of wheat, but he’s clearly wearing the same jeans as his father’s side of the family.

    Rest assured, it won’t be the only reason we love him.

    But it sure doesn’t hurt!
