Portrait of a Saturday

Today was our first Saturday back home in three weeks.  We had our one and only bathroom remodeled, and subsequently had to move out of our home for the duration of the demo and remodel.  Since you really can’t, you know, shower and pee without a toilet or tub.

But we’re back now – and I’m sorry I haven’t kept up with this blog to post pics of the whole remodeling process (but I will! soon!) because it was quite the overhaul.

Anyway, we had Becks’ cousins over this morning.  I would say we had them over to play, but the bottom line is that none of them really play when they’re together.  Instead, they run and jump and carry on like crazies the whole time they’re together.  And, no, I do not advocate bed jumping, but I was so distracted by Sutton and the wall stud finder he was showing off that I apparently missed launch.

Any mothers of 3-year-olds out there who can relate to the picture below? Which literally occurred not 30 seconds after the above pic where he’s grinnin’ a fool.  The whining is just about to kill me, and also explains why I’m going to consume an entire bottle of riesling before bed tonight.  Ok.  I kid.  Just a glass.  But still.

And, within seconds, he’s a pirate and all is swell again in The World of Beckham.

Soph spent a large amount of time in front of the camera rolling around the bed, posing upside down for me.  She’s my favorite 5-year-old and spelled the word “illustrated by” today like this: ILSTRADID BI.  I kid you not, smartest little kinder kiddo ever.  Love her.

And look at the Butterboo fixing Stinky the Garbage Truck (which, by the way, is most annoying toy invented.  EVER.).  Totally presh.

Just to make chaos a little more chaotic, we added Leland into the mix.

If you hadn’t noticed, though you probably don’t even remember because it’s been eons since I posted about, the pics are all from Becks’ “Big Boy Room.”  It’s such a random smorgasbord of stuff right now.  I had big plans for it – and still do – but it’s functional, so it’s been a little neglected.

Anyway, to wrap it up, here’s a teaser pic from our new bathroom!

Happy Weekend!

When you describe Beck's tears that can change in seconds to smiles--it sends a message to use as adults--GET OVER IT! :)
