And no, I didn't laugh.
Not until he fell asleep.

Got my new MP3 player last night, but due to volleyball, weather, and sinus infection issues, I have not yet had a chance to get it set up or load any music on it. It's wee, I'll probably lose it in my ginormous purse.
Tonight we go to Lacey's orchestra concert, which really means I'll get to hear about five minutes of music and then I'll spend the rest of the evening chasing Seth around Olathe East High School. Do you think it would raise any eyebrows if we duct taped him to the bleachers?

I bought Seth a lot of stuff for summer, mostly shorts, a couple more t-shirts. One new pair of sneakers (Lightning McQueen, natch) and one new pair of sandals. A marked-down slicker from Old Navy. Found some nice towels on sale at Kohl's for $5 per, bought two. Uh...those are for me, not Seth. :o)
Also put together the toddler bed one of my coworkers gave us some time ago, Seth is sleeping in it now. I put pillows on the floor for when he falls out. Not if, when. It's pretty much a given that he will, he's a thrasher and a roller. I'm hoping he'll like this bed enough to not want to sleep with us very often, I just don't sleep when he's in with us. I always end up out on the couch. Probably part of his grand scheme.
What else. Oh yeah, I just bought (online) a Sony Walkman 4GB Video MP3 player, to replace the POS Sony Bean MP3 player I've had for a couple years now. I put up with it as long as I could. Major design flaws. I went to listen to something today on my way home while Seth was asleep, found the battery dead, again, nearly threw the damn thing out the window.

The one downside was the group sitting right across from us on the train, two older couples. One of the guys was a total blowhard who would not shut up. He was loud and stupid, two things I don't have much patience for. When they brought out the dinners his biggest concern was whether they'd bring him "some of that there Heinz 57 sauce" ... for his prime rib! Then, looking at his vegetables, he says, and I quote, "What are these orange things?" They were carrots. Another time, when the train was OBVIOUSLY going faster, he looks up and says, "I think we're picking up speed!" Thank you, Captain Obvious. I wouldn't have known it otherwise.

I, of course, figured it was just something they had memorized, for the most part, and wasn't at all sure he really knew he was counting. Until this weekend, when he tooted two times. He looked at me and said, "Dos toots!"
According to my sister, he's Pinky *and* the Brain.
