Administrivia

That's what I'm doing today - you know, the little piles of paper here and there, phone calls to make, bills to pay, appointments to schedule...

I have some posts in my head but they are being clogged big time by baby on the brain (i.e., completely pathetic inability to put two words together in a coherent manner or to filter out interference of any kind), so let me see if getting some of the naggy little "to-do's" done around here will help me out...

In the meantime, I have to note that one of Cal's oft-used phrases has evolved again. A year ago, when something was unusual or new to him, he would say, "What in the world?!" and then he changed it slightly to, "What in the whatness?!"

This week, he started saying, "That's certainly odd."

Certainly? Odd?

I absolutely don't know where he picked it up, but if you could see the quizzical 40-year-old facial expression that goes with it...it's a crack-up, actually. And he's so serious.

OK. Gotta go. Someone is hungwy and specifically needs scwambled eggs.

$138,800 dollars a year is what you are worth! I thinking being pregnant should be worth $50,000 more! I sorted my pile of papers yesterday! ALL DAY! Have a good day:)

Good luck sorting through all your administrative stuff today. I don't particularly like days like that, but I always feel calmer after it gets done.

Your son's sayings are so fun to hear about!

I think Calvin is a 40-yr-old man in a little kid body. He's so precious.

Yesterday my son came up with "And yet I persevered." while telling me the trials of baseball. He also added "Persevere means to keep trying Mom." when I seemed a little shocked by his vocabulary. He and Calvin would probably get along swimmingly, lol.

Aww, I love "What in the whatness?",
I'm so going to love ""That's certainly odd". What a cutey.
