He'll either become a carpenter or surgeon.

Wow. Where have I been lately and where the heck did 2008 go? As a matter of fact, where did 2007 and 2006 and 2005 go? Also? When did it become the year that I will be turning 30? I swear all you have to do is blink and life will pass you by. That’s why posting has been so light lately. Mark’s been on holidays for the past couple of weeks, and we’ve just been enjoying our time together, with Nate, as a family. Sometimes the most soul-quenching thing to do is just be and live in the moment, even if that moment starts sometime after I wake up at around 10:00 am.

Although we had a very quiet Christmas, Nate was still spoiled rotten by his Grandparents. So rotten, in fact, that I was pretty certain it wouldn’t be humanly possible to squeeze all his new toys into our already toy-cluttered basement. But, as it turns out there’s always room for more as long as you’re willing to get rid of a beloved piece of furniture and turn your bar into a play area. Classy, I know. As my child ventures through these formative years his memories of building lego castles will include overhead shelves of Mom’s wine and martini glass collection.

One of the gifts that we bought Nate was a Home Depot work bench complete with every imaginable tool that makes noise. His favourite tool is whatever one that will make enough noise to give me a headache, which is usually the drill. Man oh man that kid likes to drill things. So far, he has used it to terrorize the cats, give his teddy a lobotomy and Samson a new asshole.

Oh good times. Also, can we just pretend that you can’t see we let our kid eat smarties for breakfast?

My nephew got the Home Depot set too. Man, he loves that drill. He shared with his cousin (my daughter) for a minute, and she enjoyed drilling holes in her own tummy. Then he wanted it back! Fun times! Poor Samson though, yikes!

Oh! Sweetie cakes.

Nate would love our New Year's morning tradition - the kids are allowed to eat whatever they fancy for breakfast - candy, cookies, pop - you name it. It's a good way to end off a week of binging and get rid of most of the tempting junk food in the house.

He sure loves his tool bench!
I'll be 32 this year ~ it wasn't to painful turning 30! (dreading 40 though!)
Glad you all had a great festive season.
