Okay, for all you moms who told me to be strong and muddle through the endless crying sessions for my son while we were going binkie-less I AM SORRY! I have not had the heart to confess until now. We gave in... mostly because JJ found his own binkie and we applaud that sort of indepence around here, but also because when I walked into the room that day and saw his purple binkie in his mouth (yes, his binkie is purple.. don't ask me why the two pack comes with blue and purple.. or why we happened to tlose the blue one first) I didn't have the heart to take it away. I know what happened in his little mind the moment he saw it.. wherever it was.. "oh there you are.. old pal... I missed you so much," then popped it in and waited to show me what a clever yound soul he is. Long story short, he has the binkie for naps and nighttime.... and shots.
In other news, our basement has rounded third base.. and we are almost home! The carpet that was installed last week, yesterday and today is actually really nice. I love it. We put the couch together (Sectional) last night and set up my brother-in-law's gihnormous television for the complete subterrainian experience. If one needs to use the restroom, they are out of luck, but watching a Football/golf/soon to be basketball game in 70 inches (or something like that) of High Definition glory is now entirely attainable, and that is what is really important to the men of this household. It is surprisingly funny how fast you forget how much work goes into construction when you look around at the finished project. .. hmm, you think, "that wasn't so bad," while just last week you were cursing the very idea. Anyway, there is my end of week update. Have a good weekend!
