Giants on Hot Wheels and Recycled Carrots

So I decided to tell you about our night last night. There are often times when I look around the room and say to myself, "really?" Mark is still derailed in Pennsylvania and so I came home yesterday and Riley talked me into giving him his gift early...an electric scooter! He was very excited and Kory put it all together for him. We drug Bryson out front in his high chair and we had a picnic on the front porch while Riley drove by on his scooter and giggled. We giggled as he fell off and Bryson, naturally, looked at us as if we were all crazy. Moment number one where I wondered what I had gotten myself into....here I am feeding Bryson carrots, all the while not realizing that his feedng tube was open and so his stomach contents were leaking out into his seat. Lovely! I look over and Riley is zooming by on his scooter and here comes Kory....all 200 pounds of him, on Riley's Hot Wheel. He is wearing an AC/DC shirt with the sleeves cut off and a smile that just won't quit. He was so very proud of himself. Don't even ask me how he fit on that Hot Wheel but mind you he was also pedaling and MOVING, yes moving, quite quickly actually. I often times wonder if the neighbors look out their windows and say to themselves, "Are these people for real???" So then we watch a scary movie, B goes to bed and all is well. It is the usual, Riley plays Legoes, Kory plays guitar and I color. Yes, I like to color, it is relaxing...don't laugh. We finally get ready for bed at 10:30 and I go check on B and guess what, he is awake and ready to party. Kory WAS going to sleep in his bed but then he found out that he was talking in his sleep two nights ago and now he is totally freaked out so he is in the bed too. So there in the bed are the three boys, myself and two cats. This is the second time I looked around the room and thought, "really?" So we drifted off to sleep, dreaming of giants on hot wheels and recycled carrots!
