Attack of the Shoegoblins
GREAT SCOTT

Picture Break

I seem to be hopelessly and endlessly trapped in a loop of OMG SO BUSY AND YET ACCOMPLISHING NOTHING (with bonus excessive adverbs).

I feel like I should have a Story of Substance & Worth Telling for you by now, but instead it's been nothing but work! More work! Laundry! No, more laundry than that! Sticky breakfast dishes growing ever stickier! We're out of milk/eggs/cereal! Time to go get that kid! And now the other one! Soccer! Appointments! Conferences! Phone calls and more work and oh great, the cat just decided to vomit up three days' worth of food up and down the upstairs hallway. And WTF, we're out of milk again.

In other words, here are some pictures from my phone. Ass, thy name is Half.

More brotherly bonding with screens. And no, Noah is not really wearing glasses — they're part of his Harry Potter costume. That he picked out. Himself. Willingly and unprompted. He likes wearing the glasses around because "sometimes different is fun."

Speaking of Halloween, I've opted to skip the hand-me-down costumes for Ike and put together a costume that is 100% based on That Hair. I can't wait to baffle and confuse all the neighbors with it.

"Is your baby wearing...hairspray?"

"YES. AND IT'S TOTALLY WORTH IT."

Ike is obsessed with our pumpkins (PINKINS, he calls them) and keeps trying to ride the big one. About a split second after I took this photo I dropped my phone and just barely managed to CATCH HIS FACE in my hands before it smacked right into the sidewalk. 

It's decorative gourd season, motherfuckers! Best work on those bitchin' reflexes, yo.

GAH I COULD JUST EAT HIM LIKE A SLICE OF PINKIN PIE

That hair! The haaaaiiir!! And the nose, too! He's soooo cute :-)

Arnebya

Cute level overfuckingload. Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.

Also, all of the laundry. I keep doing it, like the dishes, and here more of it comes. WTF laundry and dishes? It's like you can't quit me.

Cara

I'll take a slice too.

So I immediately noticed the glasses and then recalled an entire nonexistent post that you never ever posted about how Noah needed glasses and you were concerned how he would handle it but when he got to choose the Harry Potter look-alike glasses he was just fine, although they really were not Harry Potter glasses at all but something similar from a Star Wars episode I'd not seen, but Noah really liked.

Love your picture break. But I especially love that I am not the only one who is so effing busy, yet seems to get nothing done. (Why does it seem like all I ever ever do is clean my kitchen. Again.)

And trust me, nobody runs out of milk faster than we do. It's ridiculous.

My sis in law had a stroke so I spent a week taking care of her 3 kids and managed to do TWENTY SIX motherfuckin loads of laundry. TWENTY SIX! I won that laundry war for four fucking seconds til the kids came home and started shedding clothes like they were on fire and safety was nudity, damnit.

Ann

Dying to know what Ike's halloween costume is. Honey boo boo? the little prince? Tinkerbell? the suspense is killing me!

Becki

Sorry but I got this - California surfer dude . . .

DavesAnngel

Oh.My.God. How do you not just keel over dead from teh kewt in that last photo. I mean SRSLY! Just kill me now.

Rebecca

"sometimes different is fun."

I feel like it's weird to be this proud of someone else's kid, but still. SO PROUD OF THAT KID.

My third has the luscious curls too and she is a stinker but I cannot help how crazy in love with her I am. I tell her she's my special treat and she says, "No, Mommy! Don't eat me up!" Then I ask if I can keep her forever and she says yes and I am 100% holding her to that.

Christine

OMG, is Ike going to be Thor?? I can't get beyond that idea. Because, yes, so funny and amazing.

I love that Noah picked out the costume and is wearing it. Wow!

Nothing to do with this post, but I saw this comic today and thought of you :) http://xkcd.com/1281/

plz_thx

I would fall over dead from Teh Qute if Ike went as Doc Brown from Back To The Future for Halloween. Look: http://ideas.coolest-homemade-costumes.com/files/2012/08/great-scott-its-2-year-old-doc-brown-3639-600x800.jpg

I think the only kids whose faces I would like to smoosh more than my own kids, would be yours. They are basically brown-eyed versions of mine, sort of, almost.
Can't wait to see what Ike will be for Halloween. My oldest will be going as Darth Vader for the second year in a row {getting our money's worth out of the costume!} Middlest will be Jake of the DisneyJr show fame, and he reminds us several times daily that is what he is going as. And littlest will be continuing the family tradition of being a little skeleton for his second Halloween {three times make it tradition right? Two was maybe just me being lazy, especially since that year I had to craft a robot costume for the oldest}
And it has been requested that I be a cat and husband should be a zombie.

Replace "cat" with "dog" and this... it's been nothing but work! More work! Laundry! No, more laundry than that! Sticky breakfast dishes growing ever stickier! We're out of milk/eggs/cereal! Time to go get that kid! And now the other one! Soccer! Appointments! Conferences! Phone calls and more work and oh great, the cat just decided to vomit up three days' worth of food up and down the upstairs hallway. And WTF, we're out of milk again.
...Was my freaking week EXACTLY.
