Me: Gavin, it's time to get ready for bed.

Gav: Mom, do you know I'm nocturnal? That means I stay awake at night and don't have to go to bed. I just sleep during the day.

Me: Well why didn't you sleep today?

Gav: Oh, I just forgot.

Butt Cake

Were you intrigued by my title?  What the heck is a butt cake?

One of my very dear friends was diagnosed with colon cancer last year.  I hate cancer.  I love Bonnie.  She is one of the most hilarious, good natured people, and not that I think anyone should have cancer, but most certainly not my Bonnie.  Through everything she always had the best, most positive attitude and was really just an inspiration to me.  I know there is no way it was easy on her, but whenever I saw her she always had a smile.  She is part of my recipe group I do with my friends and through all of her treatments she kept asking if I would make her a butt cake when she was done with chemo.  I laughed, but knew I had the perfect idea and couldn't wait to make it.  She is always very witty and kept joking that we would all be able to say, "Bonnie nipped it in the butt!"

Well, Bonnie did nip it in the butt and here is the debut of her butt cake! This is the only picture I got of it because I was laughing so hard at her excitement :)  I'm glad I could put a smile on her face, she deserves it.

First edtion of "Maxisms"

Me: (Singing)
Max:  Mom?
Me: Yes?
Max: Shhhhhhhhh!

Me: Max?  What are you doing?
Max in a sneaky little tone: Nuping! (Nothing)

Me: Max, say "M"
Max, yelling: A! X!

And I know lots of kids say this, but it's pretty cute when he says: "Mom, I hold you!" when he wants to be held.

Love him.
