And now for something completly different

Okay, I couldn't resist starting this off with a Monty Python reference. Forgive me. The completely different being of course my new status as stay-at-home mom. Most likely this will not be a permanent change as I plan to find a teaching job for the fall, but for the time being I figured I would enjoy being home with Paul. Being home during naptime means having time to start a blog... so here it is. Enjoy!

Today is Paul's 2nd birthday. In my efforts to be more domestic, I made him an Elmo cake for his party this past weekend. Many doubted my abilities, (and why shouldn't they? I am not known for my cake making prowess) but I pulled it off. Paul proudly proclaimed "Melmo!" when the cake was brought forth and was able to blow out the candle with minimal spit. He has been sung to three times now and will most likely have a fourth tonight after dinner. Today at lunch he desperately tried to blow out his sundae, which incidentally had no candle. He proudly proclaims that he is "TWO" to anyone who cares and was heard counting in his crib this morning while waiting for me to rescue him. The boy is too darn cute.

Happy Birthday (no longer baby) Paul!

Thanks for the invite to your blog. I hope you enjoy your stay-at-home motherdom (said with just a hint of jealousy).

Hope the move went well, and that you are all settling in. We miss you!
