Birthday SCORE!

This is what the boys were trying to be sneaky about yesterday. They gave it to me at Chili's by pretending to go to the bathroom and coming back to the table with it. :-)
Yes, I pay the ukulele. And, yes, this one sounds great!

Okay... I'll tell now.

I completely forgot to take a pic of the completely perfect card that went with all this. I may have another chance, though. I went to lunch with some girlfriends today and Todd took the boys out to lunch too. Burger King. Burger King is actually quite a hike from our place. When asked "Why," he said that he wanted to take them somewhere 'special' since I was eating somewhere 'special'. I hate Burger King and they love it, so this made sense. Until they got home. As soon as Josiah saw me he proclaimed, "Mom! We bought you a 'not tellin'!!!"
I'll let you know what the additional "not telling" is when I find out.

"Not Telling"

My birthday's tomorrow. I don't tell you this in order to get anything from you, but to set up the story I'm about to tell.
Todd took the two older boys shopping tonight while I took lil' bit to Tae Kwon Do. After class, I asked Ike, "Do you think the first words out of Josiah's mouth when we get home will be what they bought me?" Ike said, "Yup. But I'll stop him first."

Soon after arriving home, Josiah hollered for me from upstairs, "MOOOOOOMMMMMMM!!!!" over and over until I came to the stairwell.
"Yes, sir."
"Okay. Thank you!"
Isaac says, "Well, guess I'm not gonna have to stop him."

5 minutes later Josiah comes down to my office. "Mom, we got you 'not telling', 'not telling, 'not telling' and some 'not telling'."
"Really? That's a lot of 'not telllings'."
"Yeah. And we got you some 'not telling' related 'not tellings'."
"Mmmmm. Nice."

Sometimes, I love my life.

And, in case you're wondering why they waited until the day before, Josiah inherited his "not telling" issues from his Daddy. Todd waits until last minute because he can't stand not telling. :-D

Sittin' Pretty

Have I mentioned how much our cat loves the new fish tank?
