Well...today, Brady and Lil were playing out front and wouldn't ya know it??!! A young boy and girl came over to play basketball. They are 8 and 9-ish. Brady loved it. When they introduced themselves, the young boy said his name was Diego. I was waiting for Lily to say she loves Diego (as in Dora) but, she never did....THANK GOODNESS!
I sat inside and listened to them play basketball...and Lil ride her bike and ring the bell. Then...the worst happened.
I turned into THAT mom.
You know...the weird one that secretly watches. The mom that doesn't want to be seen, but TOTALLY knows exactly what is going on. The mom that would probably wait up after a date, flash the lights and peek out the windows.
Yep, that was me. And, we all know I did NOT have that mom...so, where did this come from?
Here's the low down. I can't believe I'm actually admitting this....
I grabbed my camera. Snuck in the hallway. Mind you it is still daylight outside and the hall blinds are WIDE open. I start to snap a picture when Diego spots me and points. Brady turns around and I run.
When Bryan got home, Lil ran up to him and jumped in his arms for a hug. Then she turns and tells Brady that Daddy is home and he replies, "I don't even care."
Hmm...the teenage years are going to certainly be fun.
p.s...I'd post a picture...but, remember - I got caught and all I ended up with was a blurry white flash.

It's official!! Brady has a loose tooth. He is SUPER excited. He has been wanting one for a long time. Probably because at school, there is a chart showing who has lost a tooth...his name is blank.
He's been waiting and waiting and waiting.
The other day after eating an apple he told me his tooth hurts when he eats the apple. I felt the tooth...and wouldn't ya know it?? It was loose! The next day we actually had a dentist appointment and they confirmed that he has not 1 but 2 loose teeth. Oh goodness did that make his day.
He is wiggling it a little...but, definitely not very much. I am certainly excited to play the tooth fairy...but, not looking forward to the actual tooth coming out.
1. Wiggly teeth give me the serious eebie jeebies.
2. I love his perfect, baby teeth smile.
3. I'm not ready for the awkwardness of the gigantic adult teeth that look too big for his mouth.
4. I want him to stay a baby.
So...for the next few days or weeks - I will be enjoying this:

Well, the cuties LOVE it. My mom bought it for her house awhile back and they have become addicted. Especially Brady.
Today, I picked him up from my parents and he was playing it alone. He loves it and when he gets to play it alone - he gets 4 chances to win!! What a nerd.
He begged Nanny to borrow it - so we took it home for a family game night after dinner tonight. The four of us played - Brady = blue, Daddy = red, Mommy = green, & Lily = yellow. It was very fun...and VERY funny. Lily won. Seriously. Brady came in a VERY close second. I came in 3rd...and the hottie never made it past 5 spaces out of home. He had the most unlucky game EVER. Boy oh boy - did the cuties think it was funny.
It sure is the little things.
On a side note...Brady has his very first spelling test on Wednesday. 10 words. We gave him a practice test tonight. He got 9 out of 10. He missed the word, brown. He was devastated. We made up a song to help him learn the spelling of brown. "B-R-O-W-N" to the tune of B-I-N-G-O. He loves it. And...guess who knows how to spell brown? Yep, Brady. Let's just hope he'll remember on Wednesday.
Maybe I should try these types of games with the Hottie to help him learn to spell....just kidding.
The Hottie has been instructed to give another spelling practice test tomorrow night while I'm out of town. So, if you talk to him before then...PLEASE remind him :)
Good luck Brades!
