Facebook Archive - October 2013

Oct 9, 2013 - Ian is grumpy with me: "Why have you never taken *me* to Funkytown?!" #literallyrics Oct 10, 2013 - Ian was annoyed we didn't bring bedtime books for him so he's flipping through the Bible from the hotel nightstand and telling us the stories from inside.

Oct 13, 2013 - Sitting on the edge of the tub keeping Ian company in the bathroom per his request. Ian: "Mommy, when I'm done do *you* need to go potty?" Me: "No, I think I'm good." Ian: "Just try." Sigh. Touché dude. And so I'm typing this from the toilet.

Oct 18, 2013 - We left work at 3. It's almost 5 and we just emerged from the tunnel. Two hours to go 12 miles. As we came out of the tunnel into the sunlight, Ian said from the back seat, "Well, that was fun."

Oct 20, 2013 - Ian toured a fire truck today and the biggest mystery to him was the hand crank for the windows.

Oct 22, 2013 - Ian woke up excited that today is his BIRTHDAY! I asked him how he felt and he started rubbing his arms quizzically. Ninja turtle cookies have been delivered to school and Ian has already asked when he's going to turn 5. It seems 4 is the year we learn about patience.

Oct 28, 2013 - Ian has zero interest in carving jack-o-lanterns but desperately wants to pick out pumpkins to make pumpkin pie. George Powell and Rich Stryker would be proud.

Oct 28, 2013 - Ian, mourning our leaving the playground: "I wanna watch a movie on my iPad when we get home." Me: "Do you want to take a wagon ride?" Ian: "Yes. I want my iPad in the wagon." Me: "There's no wifi in the neighborhood so that won't work." Ian: "I WISH EVERYWHERE HAD WIFI!!" Me: "You and me both, bud."
