Foot Fetish

OK, Michael has a foot fetish. He is fascinated with painted toenails. And only on grown women. He doesn't seem to be the least bit interested in painted toenails on little girls his age. We first noticed this a couple of weeks ago. He was laying on the floor under a friend's chair and was just staring at her feet (we thought he was down there because he was hot and the floor was cool). Next he noticed it on his grandmom's feet and after telling his other grandmom about it, she remarked that he had done the same thing to her.

Well, it's now getting a little out of hand. He manuevers the feet of his daycare teacher, our next door neighbor and one of my friends to his liking so that he can get the best angle possible. He also likes to lay close to the painted toenails. It seems like he seeks out the painted toenails in order to give them special attention. I wonder what is so fascinating about them. Maybe he can tell me someday when he gets older!!

A Trip Down Memory Lane

I love to read other people's blogs. I could easily get lost in the blog world. It's like reading a bunch of books by different authors and there is never an end to the story.

While reading blogs yesterday, I came across this post. I thought that it would be really neat to have this on my blog and see what memories other people have of me. I have never met a lot of my blogging friends in real life, as I only know them online. But I thought it would be interesting to see what types of responses I get anyway.

The glasses were found in the backyard behind the deck about 5 feet away from part of Michael's toy screwdriver. Guess he was just leaving all kinds of things back there. What a relief to have found them!! I will have to keep my eye on this kid, that's for sure.

Where are they?

Well, Michael has had his glasses for a little more than a month now and they are already lost! We know that they are either in the house or in the yard SOMEWHERE. Where remains to be seen at this time. I tried to ask Michael this morning where his "sasses" were and he just shrugged his shoulders like "how am I supposed to know?". So tonight Todd and I will look for them when we get home tonight. Hopefully we will not spend the better part of our evening looking for them. Please wish us luck in searching....if only we had a metal detector!

And the funniest part about it all is that Michael doesn't really like to wear his glasses when we are trying to get him to put them on. Now that they are missing, he is asking for "sasses, Mommy" and "sasses, Daddy". It figured that he wants to wear them when they are nowhere in sight. I think he may be working us.

We went to visit my parents for the 4th of July weekend. Aunt Michelle and Uncle Alex also came too with their doggies, Ben and Baxter. Michael has mixed feeling about the doggies. He gets very excited when they are at a distance but gets scared when they get up close. At least until he gets used to them that day. It starts all over again the next morning!

We went to a parade on the 4th of July before the doggies got here and Michael was walking up to other dogs and petting them.

Saturday night, we were outside playing with the dogs after dinner and getting ready to light some sparklers. Michael really wanted Ben to come over and see him and this is how he was trying to get his attention. It was so cute!!
