Random Cuteness

We were having lunch at the Garden Cafe when nature called for Beck.

We went into the bathroom and as usual Beck told me to leave. Appearently, 3 year olds want to gather their thoughts and meditate when pooing.

Soon I heard , “Daddy?”

I walked in and heard, “Daddy!! I went poo-poo!! Yea!!! I love you!!”

August 2008 Wrap Up

Posted in Caught In The Act, Milestone, Monthly Wrapup at 9:14 pm by supertinyguy

Oh man!! A couple of big changes this month! The biggest is the Potty Follies. Boo is working on his…”waste management” skills.

Not much blogging due to the job change and general craziness…not much photo play, either. Sorry.

Belated post…

So the other day I opened Beck’s door, and found him in the crib with one leg almost over the side. Noted and moved on…

The next day, the same. Uh-oh…

2 days later:

Beck was napping in our room, in the pack-n-play. After about 3 hours, I’m washing my hands in the hall bathroom when I hear the hum of the AC get louder. Even as my dizzying intellect put it together I heard the cutest “thumpthumpthump” of wee Boo feet running down the hall. The cat, it would seem is out of the bed. I looked out in time to see Beck speed past, on course for mommy. The thumping came to a halt and Beck backs up and looks at me with a huge smile, “Hi daddy!!” and a wave, before heading to mommy. The “aww, dammit” momment dissolved, briefly, to a “aww, cute”. That gave way to, “damn developmental milestones!”

Since then, we’ve had only one bedtime battle. We’d seen that stuff on “Supernanny” and knew what to do. Hopefully that will be the last. For now, we just know that when Beck is done with his nap, he’s REALLY done with his nap.

Beckett Howser, M.D.

Everyone thinks their kid is a super-genius and is going to be a lawyer-astronaut. Now, I have photographic proof!!

Beck found a few “ban-bans” and could tell I was awash in boo-boos. Luckily, he was in-network and it was just a $30 co-pay…

Remember “Emergency”, the TV show? It always looked so cool when they grabbed a sterile package of something and ripped it open with their mouth…thereby contaminating it…well, it just looks cute when a 2-foot tall ER doc does it.

Ironically, I cut my hand a couple days later and all we had were SpongeBob band-aids…Boo’s contribution was to ask, “Daddy have boo-boo? Knife?” and kiss it every few minutes.

Blatantly reckless…and fun!

When many of us were small, safety was a flexible word. Darwinism did it’s thing and we went right on riding on the center console in the car, laying on the space between the rear window and the back seat, riding bikes with no helmet and B.B. gun wars with NO eye protection.

Since becoming a dad, my view on how those “namby-pamby bleeding hearts” have taken the danger, and therefore some fun, out of being a kid has softened. A bit. However, a healthy respect for the awesome power of the lawn dart can foster the ever useful common sense.

However, sometimes you just want to have fun. Knowing your limits allows that and makes it more so. Here’s something I never thought I would do:

Beck loved it and so did mommy and me. Later, I got the gut wrenching feeling of pride and sadness. Beck learned (incredibly fast) to drive an electric kid-sized tractor. After a while he wanted to follow me around on that 4 wheeler. For about 15 minutes he followed me around, stopping to pick up sticks and “fow-wers” to put in the trailer. Then, as the sun set behind him (not kidding…I felt like was in “Field Of Dreams”), he looked at me waved and said, “Bye Daddy!” and turned the trailer off in a different direction. Again, seriously, into the sunset. This is the first time that Beck has done it, and won’t be the last. So much pride and sadness.

Beck 10, Bunny 0

Posted in Caught In The Act, Holidays, video at 8:20 am by supertinyguy

Beck went Mano a Paw-o With the Easter Bunny for the first time. The bunny was found lacking.

Beck was often bored by the mere act of egg gathering, picking up a couple of eggs and then wandering off completely ignoring the 10 or so eggs scattered around him. An egg in the hand is worth 8 at your feet, I guess.

Beck in action, hunting and gathering.

On Easter morning, Boo learned how to peel easter eggs!

After the Gentile festivities, we went for bagels! Equal time and such…

Happy Easter from The Boo and Crew!!

Bend it like Beck-Ham…

Posted in Caught In The Act, Frolicing, video at 2:07 pm by supertinyguy

…or Boo-ham.

Beck kicked the ball back to me, for the first time!! He normally just kicks the ball once and then gets bored. Today, he kicked it back and we booted it around for, like, 10 minutes! I’m not sure what cracked me up more, the snorting he did when laughing or the tiny screams of “Goal” when he kicked the ball.
