Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

In Fresno this past weekend, the boys and I watched the movie Up while Jason slept. (I was amazed that Chase watched 90% of it. Even I was getting bored at the end.) Anyways, in the movie, the main character had a scrapbook entitled, "Adventures to Go On." (I think that's what it said..something like that.) And during the movie, I was thinking that I should have Tyler start a scrapbook like that. So we went to Target the other day and he picked out a scrapbook. When we got home, I told him that he could put in it all the things he would like to see and do in the future just like the main character did in the movie Up. I was shocked that the first thing he said had nothing to do with trains. He said, "I would like to see the Eiffel Tower one day." So we went online, printed up a picture of the Eiffel Tower and put it on his first page. I told him that we could add to the pages whenever something else came to his mind. He seemed pretty excited to have his first scrapbook. Don't know how this little "project" will pan out....will he really add things to the other pages? Will he not come up with another adventure? hmmm... For now, I'm just happy to be his mom and to show him that, even though he is young, he can still dream about all the wild, fun things he will do one day.

Hey Susan!! I always say that I will call you when you are driving home, but when it's so hard to time when you have two crazy boys to run after!

Yesterday he said that he wanted to ride a boat so we added that. Later at night, I heard him say to his Eiffel Tower picture, "You are my dream." how cute is that?!!!
