Things I want to remember and a question

At supper tonight, somehow the conversation prompted The Lad to yell out, "I WANT BACON!" Then the boys began singing, "Bacon and wine are good for you!"

---

I baked derby pie for dessert. It was the first time the boys had had it.

"What do you think of the pie, kiddo?"

"I think I'm having another slice!" The Boy said.

---

We watched Star Wars: Return of the Jedi at The Boy's request. The Lad had never seen it. Halfway through, he was sitting on me whispering, "Chewbacca, Chewbacca, Chewbacca." At the end, when Darth Vader saves Luke and then asks Luke to take off his helmet, The Lad turned around with his eyes wide and his mouth wider.

"His head came off!"

Now, he's in bed sing-songing, "Star Wars, Star Wars," and, from the rocket ship sounds I'm hearing and the random "bad guys," retelling the plot to his brother.

Last night, we went to a minor league baseball game and afterward, there were fireworks. They scared the bejesus out of Beastie. He cried through nearly the whole show, burying his little face into my neck and screaming that he just wanted to go home. (It probably didn't help that it was more than an hour past bedtime.) But he lifted his head up for the last couple explosions and on the way out to the car he couldn't stop talking about the fireworks.

"They make lots noiseys and they make me sad. I saw purple ones. And lellow ones. The fireworks were loud. I cried. I like the purple ones."

Two is a fickle, fabulous age.

Anyone have bunkbeds for their kiddos? We're looking for a set and can't find any that we're really crazy about. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I had to wikipedia derby pie. Dang, that sounds good. The fireworks story is so cute.

I've never had derby pie, either. Do you perhaps have leftovers? I'll be right over.

I just found your blog this a.m. & although I am a grandma to a terrific, wonderful, etc., etc., 11 month old grandson, I am going to tell my daughter to check you out! Just before I was going to email her, I saw your query about bunk beds. There is a set of really neat bunks in the Ikea catalog. The upper bed is twin and lower one is a bit bigger (full?). I think it's rather sharp looking & when I saw it as I was just looking through the catalog, I remember saying to myself, "Gee, too bad this wasn't available when my girls were small". We just had a second hand set of bunks for them for about 4 years, & although they were not very attractive, they were at least sturdy, safe & best of all, free! Anyway, just a suggestion of somewhere to look if you have not found a set yet. Take Care!

How cute! My boys loooove Star Wars!

We also have a twin over full bunk bed and love it, mostly. Bunk beds are a real b*tch to make. Seriously.

I think this is the one we have http://furniturerow313.reachlocal.net/BedroomExpressions/Durango-Youth-Bedroom-Group/Durango-Youth-Full-Bunk-Bed/prod170152/
except ours is twin on top. They come apart and can be 2 separate beds too.

I want to remember every second. Sometimes I wish we were on a reality tv show so they could record everything.
