My first day

My first day being a stay at home mom pretty much, well, rocked! It was a great way to start off and I'm looking forward to the rest of the summer with Brendan. Here are some of the highlights from the day.

1. The park. Brendan is a pro at going down the slides. He flips himself around so he slides either head first or flat on his belly- and he loves it. He's such a little daredevil.

2. J Dawgs. There is this little hotdog hut right by BYU campus that has the most delicious hotdogs. Best thing is- they're HUGE! Oh, and super yummy. And they serve apple beer. Brendan ate almost a whole one by himself, so they've got his approval too. It was the perfect treat after playing hard at the park.

3. The Post Office. This really isn't a highlight but I was very annoyed with the USPS today. I love sending and receiving REAL mail, but waiting in the line at the post office really sucks. Especially with a 17 month old.

4. Brendan found a sucker of Chris' from his graduation candy stash, and quickly tore through the plastic wrapper to eat the sucker. I took off the rest of the plastic so he wouldn't choke and let him have at it for a little while. He was very upset when I took it away a few minutes later
. But I figure the kid doesn't need too much sugar.
5. The harmonica. I found Chris' harmonica while searching Brendan's room for stray socks. All of a sudden, I heard Brendan playing it. When he's played with it in the past, he couldn't figure out how to make sound, but now he's a pro!
Enjoy the video!


  1. Don't you HATE the post office. Seriously, they need a different system, can SOMEONE OUT THERE figure something out! And anytime you go to J Dawgs, call us, we will come down! I love them!

  2. Yay for your first stay-at-home day! Here's to lots of fun ones in the future! You'll be in town on the 29th of July, won't you? MaryAnn's coming over to play with us really quickly before her husband's graduation and we need you! I'll drive down from Idaho for the event:). Of course, we need to play before that as well:).

  3. Sounds like you and Bren-Bren had an awesome "first stay at home day!" I always think that even the not so great days at home with the kiddos beat any day out in the work force!
