Back Home Again in Indiana
Boogser has been on fire this week. I took him to Target on Sunday where we trolled the Halloween section. Right next to the Halloween stuff was some fall beer, including the Sam Adams Octoberfest and fall pack that we have sitting at home. As soon as Boogs saw it, he yelled, “That’s Daddy’s beer!” It was the most amazing moment of my life. The only thing that would have made it better is if Jesse had been with us.
Backstory: Ryan’s Toy Reviews are the absolute worst YouTube videos your child can watch (I’d link one, but I don’t want to be responsible for giving them any hits so you’ll have to Google). He’s the most out of control kid I’ve ever seen in my life, and his parents do nothing but enable him which makes sense because they’re supposedly pulling in $11 million a year off these garbage videos. I’ve banned them in our house, but they occasionally pop up anyway because YouTube is not on board with my banning. Now that you’re caught up, Boogs has been telling us he wants to be a superhero for Halloween, and last weekend he narrowed it down to Spiderman. I saw a Spiderman costume at Target, and since it was the only one left and was in his size decided it was fate and it came home with us. As we were putting the mask on at home, he told me he was, “like Ryan”. I asked him if the whole reason he wanted to be Spiderman was so he could be like Ryan, and he told me yeah while giving me the duh look. I got played by a 2 ½ year old, you guys.
Boogsie had a fever last weekend and he and Jesse spent Sunday morning watching movies – like legit watching movies (which is how you know Boogs wasn’t feeling so hot). I used that time to do laundry and bake. I did a batch of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies in granola form (I can never get them to not fall apart so I just do it in an 8×8 pan and call it granola. I also use whole wheat flour instead of almond meal so clearly this whole thing is more of a suggestion for me than an actual recipe) and flourless pumpkin chocolate chip bars. They’re both fairly low sugar and healthy, but they’re also both like crack. You’ve been warned.
We’ve been watching so much Live PD at our house it’s borderline unhealthy, but Jesse’s brain is still recovering from grad school so I’m letting it slide. He’s not watching it actually live though – it’s all On Demand. And it’s not the whole episode so much as the condensed episodes. He says they’re better because it’s just all the good stuff, and he’s not wrong. It’s honestly crazier than Cops and not the worst way to lose a few brain cells.
In a serious attempt to remind me he’s turning 3 in just over a month, Boogser put his shoes on all by himself the other day and then legit read me a book the next night. I’m not saying he’s a prodigy (mostly because the words in Blue Hat, Green Hat are exactly what you’re looking at in the picture), but I’m not not saying he’s a prodigy.
