This is a framed Johnny Cash poster we have hanging over our diner booth where we eat all our meals — well, all the ones we don’t eat on the couch in front of the TV, which is decidedly fewer than before we became parents or started concerning ourselves with setting a good example. Anyway, Jackson’s vocabulary has been growing by leaps and bounds — as has HE, in general; at the rate he is busting out of his clothes, I think he may be taking after my mom and dad in the height department (they’re 6′ and 6’4″, respectively) — and every day he seems to learn a couple new words. Today, we were eating breakfast and he pointed to the poster and said “Cash!” and I said, “Yeah! That’s Johnny Cash,” and then I played “Jackson” and Jackson clapped his hands, and it was just one of those moments that makes all the exhausting and frustrating ones — of which there are many — worth it.
On a different note, our first annual Wedding Week comes to a close today — which doesn’t mean we won’t have any wedding-related content for another year, of course, but we won’t have quite as much crammed into five days for a really long time. I wanted to thank of all of you for the lively debates and discussions and for hanging in there even if you aren’t a fan of wedding talk. Also, thank you for perusing the gift guides and for the purchases you made through the affiliate links. I’m sure not all of you care about gift guides or consumerism in general, but this is just one additional way I can make a little revenue stream that helps support the site and keeps me in Tootsie Rolls, so thank you for playing along.
Hey, did anyone else watch “The Office” finale last night? Wasn’t it good? It’s so hard to end a television series, I think — especially a comedy — but this series finale was so well-done — one of the best I’ve ever seen. While the last couple of seasons haven’t been nearly as entertaining as previous ones, I remained a fan of “The Office” until the end and will miss it.
Anyhoo, I will close now since I hear Jackson crying from his crib after only taking a 30-minute nap, which is so unfair and cruel. I barely had time to scarf down a salad and write this post! (His babysitter took the week off and I’m really feeling the crunch of being a full-time SAHM on top of running the site, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, etc.; and now he only naps for a measly 30 minutes? WTF, dude! TGIF, is all I have to say).
Hope your weekend is grand!
