The stuff Calder says . . .

After Hugh gave Calder a stern talking to after a timeout, Calder quips, 

"Something smells."

It was Hugh's garlic breath.

Conversation at JR's Ice Cream:

C: Is there rainbow?
J: I don't think so, bud. . . . Oh wait, there it is.
C: Told ja.

When we were driving home from the Meewasin Valley Authority after making our mask on Wednesday Calder says to me, "We need a baby." My mind was racing. Seriously - does this kid need a sibling or what? He is obsessed! 

I asked him why he wanted a baby and he told me, "We need a baby and a stroller. . . because then we woulda got to use the elevator."

As we were leaving the Meewasin Valley Authority the moms with strollers headed up the elevator. Calder wanted to go, but I told him only moms with strollers got to take it. 

Apparently Calder isn't obsessed with getting a baby - he just has excellent reasoning (and what math teacher wouldn't like that!).

On our Monster and Gargoyle tour, we saw a man with long dark hair running on the trail down by the river. He was not wearing a shirt and his skin looked like leather. I am not exaggerating one bit. Ask ANY of the other moms. I wanted to run a bit to catch up to him so I could "accidentally" brush my hand on his back to see if it was actually leather. Crazy!

As we drove home I asked Calder if he had fun at on our outing. He responded, "yes." Wanting a bit more feedback I asked him what he liked. He said, "Everything . . . but not that lady without any shirt."

Bahahahahaha! I guess Calder was so traumatized by the leather skin, that he failed to realize that the long hair was on a man! I sniffled my laughs and Calder and I had a quick chat about the importance of wearing sunscreen.


  1. Haha... kids say the darnest things! They don't have a filter. They will make you laugh and they will make you cry! These were funny!

  2. "Was that a bag of leather that just ran by?" Bahahahaha!

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
