Hot Summer Day

Since it was approximately one million degrees here today and the humidity was so high that the air outside is virtually solid, there was no outdoor playing this evening after dinner, much to Jonathan's chagrin. But, I did allow him to enjoy a Slow-Melt Popsicle on the couch after he'd eaten what I deemed an acceptable amount of "real" food. A red Popsicle and a khaki couch most definitely are NOT a good idea when combined with a two year old, but today I thought, what the heck, we need some new living room furniture anyway. He actually didn't make too big of a mess, surprisingly, so I guess Ashley Furniture will still have to wait a bit...

Here is J-man enjoying his treat. I can now actually tell him to look at the camera and say cheese. It's just that I have approximately one nanosecond before he turns away:



This next one is just after he'd held still for the aforementioned nanosecond. He wanted to touch the lens with red Popsicle hand. Definitely NOT a good idea as I do not want a new camera, at least not at the moment...



And, lastly, Jonathan and Alice, who was trying to sleep. She is actually quite deaf so she can't hear Jonathan screeching beside her, but he constantly wants to "tosh" her, so she's not able to get a lot of rest while he is around, despite her diminished hearing:



And I'll end with a little tidbit. As Jonathan and I drive home after work/school each evening, we chat about the day. Bryan is often a topic of conversation. Jonathan's current favorite question is "(name of person) doing?" Today that was Daddy. When I answered "Daddy? I don't know? What IS Daddy doing?," Jonathan replied "Daddy golf." Interesting as Daddy SAID he was going to work this morning. I called Bryan to tell him Jonathan ratted him out and while I had Bryan on the phone I asked Jonathan to tell me what Daddy was doing, totally thinking he would repeat what he'd said earlier. But no, apparently my all too tricky husband has already infiltrated my sweet baby boy's thought process because Jonathan replied "Daddy working."

I am doomed.

And a voice came from across the land saying . . . "And I shall bring them forth in my image." Suffice to say I am more then a little proud of my son who clearly caught his error and correctly stated my alibi without further prompting from me. Thats MY boy!!! JBF aka Daddy

Cute popsicle pictures and Hailey loves to talk about where everyone is. Every moring we go through a list before getting out of bed. "Nauni, work. Daddy, work. Layla, outside. Bubby, couch. Mommy, HERE!" It was cute the first one million times and if I am well rested it is still pretty cute :)

How cute - and what a smart little guy you have! Or I guess your hubby is taking all the credit!:-D

I have only heard of the Slow-Melt Popsicle once. I have to let the kids try that out sometime. It's been way too hot over here as well.

Jamie said...

Slo-Melt, that's brilliant.

This is my first visit to your blog, and it's great! Your son is gorgeous and so are his 2 yr pictures. Janice did a wonderful job on your header, she's a talented one for sure!!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and website today, I really appreciate you taking the time.

The same answer "golf" applies to sophie's daddy as well! I'm very impressed that your couch wasn't red after the popsicle!

Oh, this is too much. I am LOL!! Jonathan is so cute and SO darn smart.

I love the one of him trying to touch the lens, he has the cutest little face and the added red popsicle is darling. I have NEVER heard of those slow melt popsicles, I will have to look for them, thanks for the idea.

Kara said...

Oh, dear. Can you imagine the teenage years, with a little Bryan, Jr. on your hands? You might need more than a slow-melt to get through that!

I love it. My kids think that everyone who is not at that moment in our house is at work, night or day.

Now make sure he doesn't rat you out and say "Mommy shopping"

Wendy said...

Too funny. Love that he was trying to rat him out!! Was he really golfing?

Bryan said...

Golf? Who me? Never!! (At least not then) JBF

Angela said...

That's AWESOME. You are SO SCREWED.

Slo-melt? Sounds like a great idea, even for us moms with older kiddos.

My little 2 year old niece Joslyn had a whole conversation with me about how she doesn't like Chip while he was sitting right next to us. That was pretty funny. (She likes him fine, she's just shy around him. I think it's the beard).

Oh my gosh! I am laughing so hard right now! You are in for it!

I am just catching up on your blog-the new look is great! I am glad you got to see your Buffet concert. Is your sister still doing well?
