We Found Happiness On The Clearance Rack

Today was supposed to be a fishing day with L’s Girl Scout troop but it ended up not happening. Since we now had this wide open Saturday we packed it up after breakfast and headed to Dothan. There were a couple things I wanted to look at but I wasn’t expecting to find a HUGE toy clearance at Target!

Everything was pretty picked through but we did find some good stuff. Layla got a new My Little Pony unicorn, I grabbed a bucket of mega blocks for Timmy without really looking at them…but they were $3 so why not. Then I saw Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus. The board game. OMG. Do you know about the Pigeon books? Or Piggy and Elephany?? We LOVE them. So funny. The game was marked down to $3 too so I couldn’t pass it up. Plus Layla is always saying we never play games. Well now we can! (Not that we didn’t already have 900 games at home to play.)

I was excited!

You have to go around collecting different coins and then make it to the bus depot first. But don’t let the Pigeon drive your bus!

There are even some familiar characters like the Puppy…

The Duck…

And of course the Pigeon. He got my bus. Even though I already won…

I opened Timmy’s blocks to keep him entertained while we play. Wow! Way cooler than I thought it would be. The lid is a hard hat. And he wore it forEVER.

The blocks went together to make a little workbench and there are even little tools so he can hammer nails in and a screw/screwdriver and wrench. TOO CUTE.

He sat there for the longest time playing with it all. He is loving those big fat leggos. He needs more SOON! Layla had them and loved them I don’t know why I didn’t think to get him some before today.

Have you seen that episode of Franklin where everyone is getting a nickname and they decide to call Bear “Snacks” because he likes to eat? Then Bear gets mad because he doesn’t want to be called Snacks…. Ok maybe not everyone watches Franklin…anyway.

Timmy should be called Snacks. The boy loves food.

Since he loves food so much, he loves his snack cup. I can load it up with anything and he just carries it around munching.

Sometimes stopping to share.

The dogs are usually the ones that benefit from his snacking but when Layla is around there is NO room for dogs.

He has to sit with her. I tried him in his chair, the seat next to Layla’s, the MIDDLE of the recliners on the cubby thing…he had to sit WITH her.

I’m glad she likes her brother.

Now to go stop him before he shares his snack with the fish. Something about fish eating goldfish just doesn’t sit right with me.


Sadie had the right idea. What better way is there to spend a rainy day?
 I was just a little jealous.

The Longest Morning Ever.

*If you are a Facebook friend you prolly know most of this already via my angry at Lyster mobile updates*
This morning the kids and I all had to get physicals and then go to see about some screenings that would let us move to Korea with Thomo. We got to the clinic at 745am. My appt was at 8:05. I wasn’t taken back until 8:20. While we were waiting Timmy did some puzzles for about 2 minutes before deciding he needed to do sprints back and forth across the waiting area. It prolly would have been a long distance run if I wasn’t there to turn him around every time he got to the edge of the hall. I don’t feel so bad for skipping the gym now. I’ve had my workout for the day.
Snot Face.

Annoyed with the under the sea puzzle. The pieces were odd shaped and harder to get back in than the wheels on the bus puzzle.
25July11 001
The good one. She did try to mix up the pieces though and one got stuck in a place it didn’t go and she freaked thinking she would be in BIG trouble.

Thankfully mama’s an amazon and was able to bust it loose.

Honestly I had big plans of documenting the whole trip to get 3 physicals, screenings, and shots done until I realized that I have 2 hands and they were busy catching the boy.
So once he was tired of puzzles I only got to snap a few when we were contained in the exam rooms.

If it had wheels Timmy was dragging it across the room. Chairs, blood pressure/temp stand, carts with drawers full of random doctor things…
Layla was too busy enjoying sticks n cheese to be of any help. And she haaaad to be on the big hippo table. Even when Timmy was getting looked at on it too :|

Oohh…screw things on wheels. He found the water!

VERY thankful to have the same nurses we always get and they were all over Timmy with love and helping to entertain him. One even gave them both a beanie baby to take home. Either they are just awesome and helpful or they saw that I was one lap around the building away from hiding under the desk pulling my hair out…
either way. It was nice :)
Anywho, turns out L’s appt was pointless because she just had a physical like 2 months ago (duh Megan.) and we are waiting on Timmy’s shots because it turns out HE has a double ear infection and red throat. :|
Maybe that’s why he doesn’t sleep? I suck. Way to pay attention to your kid. I swear he wasn’t acting sick and every ‘symptom’ that might have been related was easily explained by 10 other things going on.
So now we go back again at some point for his shots and to take back all the paperwork that I had to fill out for our overseas screenings.
Also very thankful for the new Starbucks cart they put in the clinic. I decided I deserved that venti iced white chocolate mocha. I’m sure I burned those calories chasing Timmy for 2 hours so I’m pretending I just broke even.
And the plus side to Timmy’s constant movement is that he has been asleep for about 3 hrs.
ALSO…I’m the proud new owner of www.GirlMeetsCamera.com! Right now it’s just forwarded to my blog but still…it’s been a LONG time of stalking. See, it used to be someones photo blog but they never posted on it…then I checked Go Daddy one day and it said it was in holding because it wasn’t ever reactivated so I had to wait…THEN last night I checked again and it was available! I snagged it. Woo!
