Holy attention Span, Batman!

So, Griffin has been psycho-obsessed (like I did say in 100 things...addictive tendencies run amock in the Byers/Rayls families...) with watching Thomas the Tank Engine movies. And since Collin was psycho-obsessed back in his day, we have all the trains (you don't spend close to $500 bucks on something and just give it away, ya know?) leftover, I brought them out to play today so that Griffin would stop tearing up videos and my audiovisual equipment in persuit of his latest round of eye candy.....

....this was around three-ish this afternoon. At a little before EIGHT tonight, I wrestle him kicking and screaming into his PJ's and toss him into bed. At 8:30, he's still awake in his crib, all but CUSSING ME OUT (wonder where he gets THAT). The kid can't sit through a bedtime book or a dinner out, but spent five fucking hours with Thomas this afternoon.

He did take a break to open a present that my friend Jessica brought for their birthday. Aaron decided (read here as "nagged me into") only having a party with HIS FAMILY this year, so she didn't realize (because I thought I would) that we weren't having a kid party for the kids this year. So, he took a break to open the kick-ass Little People Carnival Set that she gave them. OK, folks, Katie wasn't lying when she said eons ago how cool this shit is! I want to play with the Little People!! I can't wait until we figure out just what the hell we're doing with our household situation so I can build the whole village in my house to play with every day.....

So, you may or may not get a post tomorrow....depends on how much I can spend with my "pee-poe".

Aren't the little people a kid's toy, Steph? J/k Erika has the nativity set for the little people - it's pretty cute.

My nephew loves Thomas the tank. It’s all he plays with.

Regarding lil-peeps, my kids have the farm. Ryan loves the Hortee (horse) Sean loves "Farmer Dan" as he's known around these parts. In the concrete jungle of N. NJ we don't know many farmers so we romanticize the smell of manure and the 'simple life' (even though there's nothing simple about it).

I wish I could post more but the firewalls at work prohibit it, and when I get home I'm too damn tired (no offence).

Best of luck with the house, hope all goes well.
