NF: This little boy couldn’t make me happier. He’s been saying, “Ohhhh B!” (or “O BEE!”) and we have no idea what it means. But he says it, we say it back, he says it again – we’re probably encouraging this as actual language. He’s been saying ball, car, and keys. In his “first words” book I ask him where the banana is, and he POINTS TO IT! I’m amazed. He also points to the telephone in the book and says, “ELLO ELLO” (hello, hello). I have no idea if he’s right on track, ahead of the game, he is so incredibly smart to me. (done bragging). April 30th 2013 was his 1 1/2 birthday!
Life: Typically I keep this blog really light. Not too much personal stuff. Three weeks ago my dad found out he had kidney stones. Two weeks after that he had surgery to get them out. They couldn’t get them out for whatever reason – but they found a tiny tumor. They removed the tumor and checked it for cancer. He has (or had) bladder cancer. He goes in for a second try in a week to get the stones out. The cancer is low grade. He had no symptoms. If it weren’t for the kidney stones and the surgery to get them removed (because they didn’t pass) no one would have known about the bladder cancer. So hallelujah to kidney stones.
Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches: Looking for something to make in your slow cooker? Looking for something to make that a man will love. THIS IS IT! and it couldn’t be easier. All you need is a slow cooker, chicken breasts, buffalo wing sauce, package dry ranch salad dressing mix, butter (probably optional), and some rolls. Add cheese or blue cheese whatever to your liking. Whoa! This would be terrific for Football Sundays. Buy slider rolls – and people will dig right in making their own mini buffalo chicken sandwiches.

Target: Before I started reading blogs I never really knew about the incredibleness of Target. I gave it a shot. I had NO idea what I was missing. Target is the perfect place to go at 8 AM with a baby/toddler. You can get your starbucks coffee. Slowly browse in a clean store with random amazing finds with basically all the other mom’s that know the secret of Target. Toddler getting crazy? Didn’t bother to bring puffs? (for the record I didn’t know what puffs were a year ago, now they’re like a life staple) So grab a container, pop it open, and start feeding it to him, and pay at the register. I have no shame. Who is there to judge at 8 AM? The other mom’s doin the same thing, I don’t think so. Anyway, what I want to say is, thanks bloggers for letting the wonders of Target be known.
