Life With Wee People: Spaceships Require Car Seats And Doritos...

Life With Wee People: Spaceships Require Car Seats And Doritos...

My secret button is Hagen Daz. You can get a lot out of me with the right ice cream bribe (LOL). Noah is turning into a Doritos man. As soon as he sees the bag he demands to have "my chips." Doesn't matter that they are MY chips. Dude thinks he has dibs. He even threw up in my hair because he ate so many but that little ditty shall have to be a blog post all it's own (LOL). 

Stephen, the Minion Blur, is always along for the ride if Noah decides they have to have a particular agenda. Today was a major sort through photographs day because yesterday we took almost 500 shots. After reviewing 492 pictures and a couple of films the boys decided Spongebob, spaceships and chips was the agenda.

The shorties and I have been working hard on our upcoming Loacalism posts and our workbook pages projects. We've been joy riding all over the place collecting eye candy after school. Stephen even tried to tip over a Roman column from 120 A.D. during our park excursion to explore gifts from the World's Fair (LOL).

Yes, I will be blogging about that little incident in great detail. If not tonight, then tomorrow. When he discovered he couldn't whack it he drove a car on it instead, then danced upon the dedication plaque like the adorable little war mongering three year old he sometimes can be (LMAO). Yup. Dude laid down so he could drive his car on that too... Joy Ride Jr started tracing letters with his little car. Oh well... so much for the ancient history lessons, eh? At least I have cool shots for their workbook pages and art history is alive and well in their minds. :-)

Noah caught the Minion Blur telling me where to go in the picture below, so of course Stephen selected this shot for tonight's blog post. Neither one of them cared that his left index finger made the picture. I figure what the hey, lets post this puppy. We were having mad fun hunting icons from the World's Fair. Besides, the point of playing pass the Nikon is to have fun, not worry about the technical proficiencies of a 3 and 8 year old.

I think my pookies are doing great with the learning hands on experiment. They are helping me edit the "Cooking With Lenn" digital film and like dragging clips into the time line. We will be posting that puppy shortly once we finish giggling at Stephen being in love. Lenn has a fabulous kitchen. Very comfy. I've been telling them all about her. They both like cooking and seem to be looking forward to checking out her house. I have to frequently talk them out of helping each other make things without me in the kitchen so I am sure they see cooking in such a large space as a challenge (LOL).

I have a small efficiency kitchen in my apartment. They view it as a place they can become miniature mad scientists when not pretending to be chef of the future competitors creating multiple tiered PB&J sandwiches. Stephen, the Minion Blur is the one who needs a tracking device. Did you forget the toasting of the cell phones incident? That's a classic and I bet you'd love to know what i have not been sharing with you (ROTFLMAO).

I have said it once and I will say it again: Play dough and microwave should never be used in the same sentence (LMAO). I keep thinking I should destroy those photographs but I laugh every time I look at them.

Pssssst... That's leverage for when he gets a girlfriend and I whisper, "Don't make me pull out the book. I'm your mother. I know the real you and I have pictures and film to prove it..." (LOL)

Noah E Starr Carolyn Tann-Starr 2010

I shall be posting more autistic photographs of Noah E Starr later. We've been wandering around town having a blast playing pass the Nikon and I can probably write several posts just sorting the categories of shots.

Stephen has decided he's my human backpack and my park duties include playing pack mule to his bossy little chirps of "go here" "over there" "no, no, stoooop"  "go,go,go" and "run, run, ruuuuuuuunnnn!"(thank God he has no idea of the concept "faster" - LOL).

Time to make the shorties go back to bed. I hear Spongebob again... (LOL).

Margaret, some of his other shots are fabulous. He stuck the camera in the fence to shoot the Unisphere. :-)

C-  I love that shot, too. Very sweet.  I don't know how you have any time in the day!  I'm exhausted just reading, lol!

Margaret the shorties and I are always finding something to go do (LOL). I let them play TomTom after school and on the week ends. They have been taking me everywhere. ;-)
