awkward and awesome thursday



Seeing this on the kitchen counter...

3-10-11 008 looks a lot like pound cake, yes? I felt pretty awkward taking a bite and realizing it was in fact a loaf of homemade bread.

Not being able to pass the word verifications when commenting on blogs. sigh. That kind of awkward can turn into frustration pretty quickly.

Showing my little brother how to cut a piece of paper. He's watching intently, taking in every single step. And then the scissors decide bail out on me and not slice through.


My new pair of earbuds. Bright cherry red, enough said.

SJ's dance moves. He can jump towards the floor and hold his legs in the air using only his hands. I'm expecting break dancing sometime in his future. His favorite song artist is a tie somewhere between Taio Cruz and Bob Marley.

The baked macaroni & cheese I had for dinner tonight. so. delicious.

Being clean. Whoever said boys were messy? This child washes his hands all the time. I highly doubt he'll ever catch as much as a cold with the amount of soap he uses.
