I stole Bubble Bath

I stole a bottle of SpiderMan bubble bath from Superstore yesterday.

Of course it was totally accidental, and once I realized it I turned around, went back into the store, told them what I had done and went to pay for it. What's funny is they were surprised that a. I told them and b. went to pay for it. I guess they lose a lot of merchandise that way, but perhaps it's an oddity that someone actually realizes their mistake and takes care of it? Makes you realize how easy it is to steal something. Of course had I done it on purpose I would have looked guilty, but not having known I'd done it (it fell to a hard to see area on the stroller), of course I didn't look guilty. Because I wasnt!

Otherwise, we're doing well. Having a good week with the kids. Very laid back. Our friend and her two little boys were supposed to come over today, but her smaller one was sporting a fever and we agreed it was better to not risk spreading whatever it was he has. So we had an open day, and quite enjoyed it.

Evidence Duncan is my son (not that we had any wonder about, but anyhow) tonight around 8:00 he announced that it was time for his nap, and got ready to march upstairs to brush his teeth. When I was a kid I would say to Mom "I'm sleepy, I'm going to bed now" and off I would go. I have always liked my sleep! Apparently he does too. I just hope Cordie enjoys sleeping too. I can pretty much rely on Duncan to sleep until about 7 AM. Now. I was reading Tanya's post about Warren being up silly early one morning, and I remember those days Tanya! I remember when us taking turns to get up early meant 5 AM. Duncan moved beyond it, let's hope Warren does too.

We got tickets to go see the Wiggles! WooT! I joined the Wiggles fan club (free) and so we got a presale code. At 1st I thought it was at an outdoor stadium... in October... in the fall... in Vancouver... actually I think it's Thanksgiving weekend, but that usually means rain and I was thinking "Why on earth would they book a kids concert at an outdoor stadium in October?!" but then I realized it's at the arena, not the stadium, and so it's all good. We got decent tickets. We didn't try for floor, or 1st row or anything b/c I don't think Duncan needs that, and it cost us less, but we're in a row 4 in the stands, so not too bad.

Cordie is doing well. She's a total doll. A really good little girl who loves to chatter and smile. She also loves Duncan, and Duncan loves her. I know that won't always be that way. I expect them to fight like my brother Sean and I did growing up, but hopefully they'll get over that. Anyhow, that's then. This is now.

Duncan is also doing well. Starting preschool in 3 weeks. I think he's going to enjoy it. He is such a great little boy. A total joy. His words and speaking are just growing by leaps and bounds now. It is so much fun to actually have conversations with him, ask questions and get answers, have him ask questions and know he understands the answer... I admit I'm enjoying each stage for what it is. I don't sit around wishing that they could be this way forever and never grow up, but I don't wish away the time either. I know people do. It's too bad for them.

HAHA shortly after Warren was born, I stole a bottle of vanilla from a Wal Mart. I had the same sort of confused, "uh...ok..." from customer service when I went back, too.
And thankfully, Warren only ever had that one stupidly early morning. Life is a bowl of peaches with this kid.
And speaking of peaches...see you later!
