Memorable Moments

Me: OK buddy, it's time for stories.

Berkley: No, no.

Me: Yes, let's go read some stories and take a snooze.

Berkley, grabbing onto his dad's shirt: No, daddy read me stories!  Daddy stories!

Shawn: OK, I'll read you stories.

Berkley, looking at me, in a sing songy voice: na na na naaa na na.

Shawn and Whitney:  hysterical laughing.

What's that?  A moment for disciplining the little brat?  Sorry, it was too funny.

Items found in my bedside trashcan this morning:  $1, a pair of earrings, a necklace.

Berkley:  Mommy, you love me?

Me:  Yeah, I love you.  Do you love me?

Berkley:  Yes.

Berkley when Sovie wakes up from her morning nap:  Sovie!  It's good to see you.

Berkley:  Mommy, I'm a monster, I'm gonna get you!

Me:  Oh no, don't get me monster.

Berkley:  No mommy, I'm not a scary monster, I'm a happy monster.

Berkley pointing at the window:  Mommy, you see the ghost?  (reflections)

I have no clue how his brain connects reflections to ghosts, promise he doesn't watch horror movies!

Anyway, don't know if you find these things amusing but I wanted to jot them down.

Yo Gabba Gabba Live!

When I found out Yo Gabba Gabba Live was coming to SLC I knew I wanted to take Berkley...then when I looked into getting tickets and saw with fees and all they were $38 I knew it wasn't going to happen.  Then when Groupon talked about a deal through Travelzoo for $15 total I thought, why not?
Berkley with Muno, he didn't know what was going on but he liked it.
 Berkley and me and Stella and Lori.  Isn't the big ol' Kia funny?
 When they first came to life onstage one at a time Berkley offered a heartfelt, whoa every time.  I thought we were in the clear and he was going to be in hog heaven...
 Then the confetti canons went off...literal trembling ensued with a sincere, "Mommy, I'm so scared."  Broke my heart!  Luckily I got him to relax a little and started clapping to him and showing him that I was having fun.  He even clapped and said "yay" at one point.
 Holly and Kai (not to be confused with Kia) were a little late, but here they are.
At least I know he had fun, he was bragging to his dad about it when we got home and he's been playing with his Muno beanie baby all day.  I honestly thought it was a fun show and I would totally do it again.
