Stretch It Out

Me (stretching after a workout): "Hey buddy, want to stretch with me?"

Sippy Cup: "Sure!"

Me: "Ok, just do what I do."

Sippy Cup: "Ok."

Me (squatting down to stretch my quadricep muscles): "Ok, just make sure you do it slowly so that you don't hurt yourself."

Sippy Cup (squatting down slowly): "Oh crap. I gotta poop!"

Me: "Fantastic."

Sippy Cup (running down the hall): "Ha ha! Stretching makes me poop!"

Sippy Cup: "Mom, I want that spider."

M.O.M. (looking around nervously): "What spider?!"

Sippy Cup: "The one that bites you."

M.O.M.:  "Definitely not."

Sippy Cup (pinching the space between his thumb and forefinger on his left hand):
"You know, the one that bites you here."

M.O.M.: "Once again, these details aren't helping you."

Sippy Cup: "I want that spider."

M.O.M.: "Of course you do."

Sippy Cup: "It only takes one bite."

M.O.M.: "That's one too many."

Sippy Cup: "So that I can be Spider-Man."

M.O.M.: "And now it all makes sense..."

Sippy Cup: "The real Spider-Man."

M.O.M.: "Obviously."

Me (yelling from the living room): "Welcome to my world!"

Before we brought Princess Teacup home, we were a little worried that the prince of our castle would be jealous of all the attention and affection his baby sister would be receiving.

Clearly, our worries were unfounded.

Of course my concern is that now, he's training a sidekick.

Precious Moments

Princess Teacup is roughly 16 days old.

Which, of course, means we haven't really slept in 16 days.

But, when she makes faces like this, none of us really care about the lack of sleep.

Captain Sippy Cups

Today, Sippy Cup solemnly swears that he will be spending the day defending us against all enemies, foreign and domestic, real and imaginary.

Which, of course, means I'll be spending the day running away from him.

Happy Independence Day everyone!

But You Don't Know What You've Got...

Dear Sleep,

We miss you.  So much.  So, so very much.

All of Us (except Princess Teacup)
