I cut Ben's hair for the first time last night. It took every drop of control to keep myself from crying the whole time. He was blessedly asleep, and never uttered a peep. I think if he had gotten upset I'd be sitting in puddles. It looks pretty darn good if I do say so myself.

Joe & I went to see Matrix Revolutions on Sat. I really liked it - and like it more, the further away from it I get. I understand that they could not neatly tie up every single thing by the end of the movie, but initially it bothered me. Now that I have had a few days, I decided that I like it anyway. The Zion battle was awesome - the Smith battle seemed anticlimactic after that.

My mom watched Ben for us while we went. They actually had a GREAT time. No crying or anything for the whole 3 hours. We are hoping to do this on a more regular basis now that he us shown us he is ok with this. We may actually get to go out more often with out him. I still don't want to be gone for too long, but going out for dinner like adults once in a while would be nice.

Oh, and I am officially sick of having to figure out what to buy for gifts for people who have everything. You know the type. They have tons of money, buy themselves everything they want, and you, on a limited budget have to figure out something that they need/want and haven't figured out yet - because if they had they would have just bought it for themselves. I have a number of these on my christmas list this year, as always, and really just wish I had the balls to make them all macaroni art, and a card and call it a day.

Oh, and I love people who really do appreciate the thought, even if the gift isn't spot on. I spend hours, and days trying to think up the perfect gift for each and every person in my life - so when I do purchase them something it is with love and effort, even if I may not have gotten it just right. That is also why I include gift reciepts. Please don't be afraid to use them. I don't just blindly give cash or gift certificate either - when I do it is becuase I think that is what the person needs or wants. I personally love getting them, but that is just me. I have no space for clutter, and it is the only way I will spoil myself.

On another note entirely, and one a *special* few of you will get. Joe was helping me cook dinner last night and Ben starts whining and asking to be picked up:
B: whining
J: Ben, Frankie says relax
I almost pissed myself.

I had a ton of errands to run this morning, and Ben seemed very anxious to get out of the house so I got us dressed, grabbed all the bags (I had to return a bunch of stuff) and went out the door. As we are walking down the porch stairs Ben gets this silly grin on his face, and stops walking. He turns his face into the wind and just smiles. When the wind stops he starts looking at all the trees, bushes and plants - pointing excitedly as the sunlight pours through them and the wind makes them all move. I realized that I have been so busy running errands, and trying to get stuff done I hadn't even noticed how pretty it all was.

So I put down my bags, enjoyed it and pointed too. I wonder how many times I have just gotten irritated that he was stopping and didn't realize what he was seeing. Kids are so lucky to not have their minds cluttered up with "to do" lists that they know to stop and smell the roses. I guess that is one of the great things about being a mom... now I can too.

a new board book for Ben called First Book of Sushi. It's not quiet as well worded as I would have liked, but I still think it is awesome. We had a great time at B&N. He spent almost an hour playing in the children's section. There were a few other older kids there and he just jumped right in and started playing with the Thomas the Tank Engine train set with them.

to my son's now former pediatrician. I was MUCH more polite than I wanted to be. I've been calmly composing and researching this letter since I left their office on Wednesday. Let's just say that after the weekend that we had, and the fact that I had just come from MY doctor finding out that I too had a double ear infection, that I was in no mood to be polite or well spoken. Anyone who actually wants to know the pediatrician in questions just let me know I have no reason to be discrete.

Ben pooped on his potty for the first time! Ok, so maybe this is not the most exciting thing for you to read about but I figured it is keeping with today's theme. We are now one step closer to him being potty trained *Yeah!*
