Our 100th Post!

One hundred posts.

Hard to believe I had something important to say, and then 99 more things to say after that one.

I started this blog when we moved to Chicago to keep our family and friends updated on what we were up to. It's turned into much more than that - a place for me to write what I want and not care what people say or not say... because it's my blog, and you're not the boss of me. It's also an "online scrapbook" of sorts, to remember what we were up to, see how our lives have changed, and to record the one-liners of The Boy. I hope blogspot never goes away, because I have two years of memories on this thing.

So happy 100th post to The Bartlett Family 3 (although we are Bartlett Family FOUR now... which I never envisioned when writing our first post!) and here are some one-liners from our favorite four-year-old:

-Last night The Boy asked me to get something for him and I was feeding Baby Brother. I said, sure, I can get it, can you hold his bottle? And be careful how you hold it, because he starts jacking around. The Boys says, "Dylan, now would be a good time for you to NOT jack around since I'm trying to give you your bottle."

-Last night Kyle and The Boy were talking about going to the Children's Museum today because it's raining. Kyle mentioned the idea and said, I think they have something about Legos going on right now, and The Boy says, "Sure. We can go see that Lego Convention."

-(This one will make me mother of the year) As you can read in our previous post, the boys camped in the backyard. I slept inside and on Sunday morning, Nathan kept coming in and out of the house trying to get me to come outside. I tried to procrastinate as long as I could, because getting out my cozy bed to go lay in a tent just wasn't appealing to me. He finally tries one more time and hollars into the back door: "MOMMA! Get yer A double S out here!" At least he didn't say the word, but we realized we need to stop spelling so much in front of him. Duly noted.

-After more than a week home with Kyle, he told him yesterday, "Dad, you're the best dad ever." Thanks, Buddy... we try. It helps to have a kid like you :)

You are too funny. And Nathan is so funny. You are definetely going to have to watch the spelling. They pick up everything as you're finding out. And also Nathan is YOU!
