We were hanging out by the river in Perth this weekend, when this lady started making conversation about how cute and soft Bosco was. It led her to start snapping some pictures of him with this insane camera. When I pulled out OUR humble little digital Sony Cybershot to take some pictures of my boys...she offered to take some pictures of all of us with HER camera, with the promise of emailing them to us. Turned out she's a great photographer! http://littlepixels.ca True to her word, she emailed some today...and said there are a few more to come...
i've been so pleasantly surprised by perfect strangers.

Bosco begs for food EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. we eat. Begs like he's starving. The day he doesn't...we'll be driving like maniacs to the vet.
Our yard is 50% grass, 50% weeds. We have the worst lawn of the neighbourhood. I'm sure our neighbours talk about it behind our backs.
I met an old coworker for a playdate today...and 99% of our conversation was about our kids. Scary how I've become someone who I would've considered to be so "boring" before.
Hudson deliberately peed on Bosco. WTF.

I found this recipe (modified it slightly...basically lessened the sugar, and added chocolate chips) and can't believe how yummy they are. I've made them numerous times, and watch in disbelief as Rob eats half a dozen in one sitting. TRY them!
Banana Cottage Cheese Muffins
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of oats (or you can use 1 1/2 cup of flour, I've made them both ways)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 ripe, mashed bananas
1/2 cup brown sugar (i've used less if adding chocolate chips)
1/4 cup melted butter
1 cup of cottage cheese
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375'. Line muffin tins with paper cups (I'm sure you can grease if you don't have cups, but I haven't tried it before).
Whisk dry ingredients in big bowl (minus the sugar). Combine wet ingredients (banana, cottage cheese, butter, egg, vanilla) in another bowl (with the sugar). Add wet ingredients to dry, and mix until just combined (don't overmix). Add chocolate chips at this point (I don't measure, but estimate 1/2 cup???). Pour in muffin tin, and bake for 18 min. (until muffins feel firm and springy). The cottage cheese adds protein and calcium, and makes them moist! And you can't taste that it's in there. They don't LOOK like gorgeous deli-style puffy muffins (they're pretty dense and small), but healthy and yummy...two words that don't often go together!

I found it in the kitchen sink, and yes...screamed when I killed it.

Hudson understands EVERYTHING! Seriously...everything. He recognizes all sorts of words, letters, shapes, colors, objects...etc. His speech? Ummmm...let's just say that he's learning. Slowly. Which I'm told is normal for boys (vs girls). But it's funny how the few words he does know (combined with some vigourous pointing and grunting) is all he needs to get his point across! He's one bossy dude.
P.S. He calls Bosco "Oof" (Woof).
P.P.S. "Bap" is Korean for "rice", and "Bang-goo" is Korean for "fart".
