Play Today And A Giveaway!


Kids, man. Mine drive me insane all day long but really, they're pretty great I guess. Pictures like these make me feel alright about the fact that we managed to have a decent summer even though I was huge, sweaty, easily irritable, and basically useless for most of it. I hope they don't remember how much t.v. they watched (hours upon hours upon hours...) and instead hold onto those brother powered lawnmower rides and glowing nights at the ghetto fantastic drive-in when we were lucky enough to have the place practically to ourselves.  


There are negatives to living in this digital age, but at least my boys will never suffer for lack of photographic record of their childhood and I'm grateful, because they're ginormous already and getting smarter and taller and more big-people like every day. It's weird and sad and awesome all at the same time and I could probably get all sentimental and squeeze out a hot tear or two about it, but instead I'll point you toward this little vid done by Gymboree because kids-they grow up too fast! 




So, cherish those little nuggets even when they say things like "YOU'RE NOT A NICE MOM, I'M GONNA THROW YOU IN THE GARBAGE", when you tell them they can't have a piece of gum because pretty soon they grow up and leave you and you'll want to throw yourself into the garbage from all the loneliness instead. 

Here's what you can do while your kids are growing up and you're trying not to blink your eyes and stuff: leave a comment below if you want to win a $50 gift card to Gymboree and get your kids some clothes so they won't be starving and naked, unless they prefer to be starving and naked in which case, my sympathies because I feel that. Just one comment will do, and make sure your email address is included if it's not on your blogger profile, mmkeh? High five!
