Y Chromosome

Y Chromosome

So here it is. I caught Munchkin on the toilet with his View Master.

It truly MUST be something in the Y chromosome that produces the insatiable need for entertainment while one is sitting on the pot. There were men in my family (I'm not mentioning names) who used to sit and read the Sears catalogue on the pot. I worked at a hedge fund in NYC where I witnessed many a men coming out of the bathroom with their thumbs flying across their Blackberry...because we know absolutely NOTHING can wait until you get back to your desk from your potty break.

I don't know women who do this. I don't take reading material or my phone to the bathroom with me. Who knows, maybe that's just because I don't have time. I rarely (if ever) get to even go in there by myself anymore, much less take 30 minutes to answer emails or pick out my spring wardrobe. Although, maybe if I had a View Master with some picture wheels of George Clooney or Hugh Jackman I could find the time.

Tonight we hit the all-you-can-eat buffet at Mama's Pizza. Mama would be proud of my boys. The OVERWHELMING majority of that carnage was inflicted by my husband and Munchkin. They both put their hollow legs to good use. Is it unusual that my 3 year old eats me under the table?

Potential

Spring has sprung here in Dallas. Our neighborhood is covered in blooming Bradford Pear Trees right now and it's just lovely. Bradford pears are actually pretty useless trees, IMO. They provide no shade, which is really why you have trees in Texas. But they DO look lovely for the one week that they are in bloom.

I found this one little mast that had a few blooms holding out...such potential. I don't know what they're waiting for but I'm in no hurry for them to pop. No sooner has the tree completely popped then the blooms will begin to fall off. In fact, I took Munchkin to preschool this morning and as I was driving down the ally I noticed it was speckled with little white confetti. It's almost over.

And of course while I was shooting the trees, I had to take a picture of this gorgeous child.
