Milo's first week of school

Milo's first week of school had some ups and downs. We're still getting used to sitting still and listening to our new teacher. On the plus side, he's enjoying art and gym class... and as you might expect... recess.

Here's hoping next week gets easier. Hang in there lil' dude... only 16 more years to get your Bachelor's Degree!

Daddy: "Joey, get back into bed!"

Joey: "No thank you stupid Daddy."

Well, at least there was a 'thank you' embedded in there.

Milo Good, Man of Intrigue

Today was a special visitation day at Milo's new elementary school. We got to meet his teacher and see his classroom. We also got a chance to get a head start on making some new friends.

While we were out on the playground, a little girl went up to Milo and asked "What's your name?"

Milo switched to clandestine mode and responded "I'm the guy who's always playing on these bars."

Kung Fu Joey!

Well, today Joey earned his Yellow Stripe belt. Good news is that I got to go see the ceremony. Bad news... Poor Joey got shy and didn't want to participate.

The kids did their little exercises and I even joined in on the push ups hoping that Joey would follow suit. But no...

At the end Ms Jessica gave Joey his belt anyway. She said that Joey is usually very active in class and is a good jumper. But she also said that most times he just runs up and kisses her.

He gets that from me...

This is how far we were from the car when....

Milo complained "We've been walking for days already!!!"

Goin' to the Chapel...

So, here is a photo of Milo this week, who is dressed for his upcoming wedding to Jessie (cute girl from school). He was very, very insistent to have a shirt and tie for the occasion (and that's not all that easy to locate, we discovered).

Milo was the fashion hit at school on Monday, quite the charmer. The wedding is going to be "in 12 days" and now "I need another shirt with a tie, and Grandma's going to get me more shirts with ties because I love her." Awww...

More Joey Etiquette

This evening Master Joey excused himself from the dinner table like a proper gentleman.

When he returned he proudly announced...

"I went potty and I blew bubbles in my potty and I spit!"

Pass the Buck... and the Ketchup!

Ok.. so it was the old school restaurant trick where you put the near-empty ketchup bottle upside down and on top of a new one so you can let gravity help you get the last few drops of zesty tomato goodness...

I stepped away from the kitchen for a minute and in my absence Joey knocked the bottles over.

I grabbed a towel and cleaned it up. Then I said "Joey??"

Joey looked up at his old man and said "You did it!"

It's the lying that hurts so much... .

Big Turkey Feet

One of the perks of working at an ad agency is... Big Turkey Feet!

Official Business

Yesterday, Milo got his first official haircut. No more shaving his head in the bathtub (though we're continuing that tradition with Joey). Nope, Milo was a trooper- didn't say a thing or barely even move in the chair during the cut. I was so proud of him! He lost some curls in the process, but still has a little shag going on. Way to go, Little Dude!
