Take Action!

While I'm sure the storms that plan to tear across the midsection of the country will be awful today, I just can't stand the warnings anymore. It's time to pack up my broom and head into town. The plan will be a late lunch/early dinner and a movie with the BFF. We're sure to be at odds about what to see, so I'm going armed with my arguments in favor of what I want to see.

Here is an action shot of Rylan who is incognito. I'm sure she is practicing hiding from paparazzi for when she's a big star. I swear this particular photo took 5 attempts or more.

Less action, more cute. That's Rylan in her favorite knitter's hat, Tutu. I swear she no sooner got the hat on then immediately outgrew it. Good thing her knitter loves her.

Don't be fooled. My daughter and Rylan's mother no sooner left the house to go buy Pure water (from which to mix formula), than this little thing decided to awaken and scream bloody murder. I wish my iPhone had been closer because the louder she screamed, the louder Leo howled. It was hysterical. Leo was beside himself at her distress. It was as though he were screaming at me: "DO SOMETHING! DO SOMETHING NOW!" I'd tried to tell the new mom that Pure water was probably the same thing as what we old fogies called boiled water, but there was no convincing her. Pure water it was. Gerber must be laughing all the way to the bank.

OK, so I've decided the must see movie today belongs to the Farrely brothers. I mean, really, have you not laughed until you cried watching Dumb and Dumber, or, There's Something About Mary? I don't need to see Titanic, or Hunger Games, or worse, right before I rent one for a week: The Cabin in the Woods, which is where horror meets sic-fi.

Nope. I want to laugh. I'm going to do my utmost to convince my best pal that nothing but The Three Stooges will do.

How will you take action today?

I would have chosen The Three Stooges too. Oh Rylan is adorable...especially in the hat. That is the first one I have seen like that. The lace really makes it so girly. Crying infants are so hard to console sometimes. Hope you have a fun evening!

Gorgeous baby. I love Leo's daddy instincts :)

It was pouring rain all day today so we stayed home & did laundry. And I cleaned out my closet - I have a nice stack of clothes to give my church's clothing ministry. But I think I'd rather have gone to the movies!

I am bemused by the new Three Stooges movie. I have fond memories of my brother watching the b/w versions back in the 60's(?). He laughed while I acted superior. I laughed on the inside though. Good choice.

My action for today is finally getting that sock pattern up on Ravelry.

I want Rylan's hat. It is so, so cute! Not as cute as she is - I especially like the pic' of Grandma holding her - she is a beautiful baby.

My action today consisted of going to bed at 6 am and sleeping until 3:30 pm [a gift I tell you] throwing together chicken noodle soup for dinner and going to the mall with Wallene to buy some new, dressier clothes. She is so much fun to go shopping with, I swear! I actually liked shopping for once and I let her pick out all my new clothes. Sweet! I think I may have my own personal shoppers now. heehee

Speaking of movies, we rented "We Bought a Zoo". Good story, Matt Damon and the kids are good in it but Scarlett Johanssen's part was poorly written or she over acted it b/c although we really like her, she didn't make much sense in her character. Let's just say - Worth renting for 3 bucks, will watch it again for free if it comes on cable, but wouldn't buy it for our collection.

And I have to agree 100% with your votes about the "Hunger Games" [it is annoying me at this point - oh look! the same type movie, only....different. Let's target teenage girls!] and "Titanic". Did it not make enough money the first time? Doesn't EVERYONE with teenage girls own it? And I do love comedy. I am anxious to hear what you think of it.

Poor, poor Leo. Wish we could've heard to tho'. Good of you to laugh, I think I might have been frantic [moreso over the dog, babies cry inconsolably sometimes, so].

I can't wait to see our grandkids. I wouldn't mind if our older ones moved it along a bit....sigh.

**can't wait to hear your take on "The Three Stooges :)

I decided to look online at this water Pure by Gerber. Gerber won't let me see it's info because I don't live in the US. I wonder why? Amazon sells it and their info is that it is water with fluoride taken out, according to the blurb fluoride is very bad for babies younger than 6 months. Hmmm, didn't do my children any harm but that might be because we are British and it is only harmful to American babies. This was said with a lot of sarcasm in my voice.

Mimi said...

cute pic! Isn't Leo so funny, looking after baby's needs!
Three Stooges sounds just the ticket if you're contending with storms.
We don't have it that bad here, but some little storms forecast too. I'll be lighting a big fir this eve and relaxing after a hectic weekend!
Enjoy the movie!

Pure and Nursery Water are distilled waters with added fluoride for teeth and salts (for taste). Perhaps its marketed elsewhere by Nestle and if you looked hard, you'd be able to find this there. It could be the convenience of use that's so attractive because I don't know about you, but here, it's difficult to turn the faucet on and let it run a moment or two. So much easier to pour the already prepared water from a bottle.
