Big Mama

Yesterday Tommy took the kids to Target. When the crew came home, Gus was scowling and Tommy said he wanted something at Target but Tommy couldn't understand him. I asked Gus and he said "I wanted the Big Mama Cawt."
So, today, when we were inevitably back at Target, I sent Tommy a picture to explain. Here's Big Mama in all of her three seated glory. 
(Side note: the reason we go to Target so frequently is not to replenish our vodka and beer. 😇)

Because I don't want to forget.

Blaise begins randomly pairing each family member with a sea creature. "I'm the shark, Gus is the goldfish, Mom you're a beluga,  Rosie is a seahorse and Dad is a sperm whale." (?!?)

Tonight during dinner I realized Blaise doesn't know how to do a somersault. I said "you'll have to call Elisa to teach you." (his cousin) He responds "So you're going to put me in physical therapy?" He thought I had said Eileen, Gus's old PT.  Then Gus picks up the walkie-talkie and has a pretend conversation with Eileen. "He-woah Ei-ween"
Last night while finally, finally putting Gus to bed he requests I sing him a song. 
Me: Ok, which one. 
Gus: ..... "Rock Me Mama like a wagon wheel"
