i wish i had a beautiful mind.

not the math kind.

or the poetry kind.

 the music kind.....

but not the music kind you might think.

i wish i had the mind to write a beautiful movie score.

you know....

the kind that leaves you shaken and weak in the knees.

the kind that stires memories you didn't even know you had.

yeah, that's the kind of mind i wish i had.

change of focus

Stone and I have never really been big into Valentine's Day

This year Henry was our Valentine.

He is, after all, the result of us falling in love.

Oh how I love this sweet boy.

why my kid dresses better than i do

i look in Henry's closet and I think
'jeez!  this kid has got a lot of clothes.  i do not need to buy anything else for this season'
but then Emma tells me she is quitting the Gap and if there is anything i want for Henry to let her know.  so obviously i have to go into the Gap and check out their spring line....and their sale rack because i've got a gift card with $8.57 burning a hole in my pocket (and she doesn't get her discount on sale items anyway).
then i figure i might as well walk over to nordstrom since i'm already at the mall.
i'm safe since i don't usually like the boys clothes they have in the store.....
but, then i see this little ditty

and it's on sale to boot!
so obviously i have to buy it....right?  RIGHT?!?!?!?
but then it gets worse....
I remember Henry needs these little guys
(he does!  he wrote about it in his journal....)
so yup.  you guessed it.  i purchased both.
it's a sickness. 
i picture his sweet little belly squeezed into that little top and his tiny little tootsies walking around with those kicks and i can't help it. 
i'm a sucker for baby clothes.
why is everything infinitely cuter in miniature form?!?!?!
