Words of Wisdom

People will look anywhere for wisdom. The more popular choices include television, rap albums, and Google. Yet an older way still exists amongst the literati- books. Sure there is the bible and dummy guides and self-help stuff, but for some real knowledge look no further than these two titles:

tips on fashion and imagination

acceptance and the power of humor

Doesn't get much better than that.

Thanks Day

The boy entertained for the holiday. He hung out with family and friends, ate some food, messed around and got a triple-double. I guess you could say he had a good day.

Atticus & Grandpa in Yard

Atticus & Nana at Table Aunt TT & Doggie
Goodnight Grandpa
Goodnight Pizza

Na-Nu, Na-Nu

This is how tired Atticus is. The boy that won't sleep fell asleep standing up. He took two steps into the house, took a seat ala Mork, and started snoring. He must have been there 5 minutes before I realized he wasn't pretending.

He gets that from me.

Test Flight

Atticus built an airplane the other day. Then he taught himself to fly. It's amazing the things he can accomplish.

Chicken Little Review

The sky fell. It was cute. Tricia and Atticus laughed quite a bit. I didn't find it nearly as humorous as its Pixar counterparts, or the Dreamworks movies(Shrek, Madagascar, Ice Age)for that matter. It was good, don't get me wrong, but to me the jokes seemed forced and obvious and there weren't nearly as many gags for the parents like those that I've come to expect from the above mentioned films.

Atticus called the theater "Chicken Little's house", and was not happy when we left. He was tired when we got there and I didn't think he would make it through, but he sat upright and riveted the entire time- a true mark of a good film in any parent's book. Since then he has mentioned Chicken Little pretty often, even falling asleep mumbling his name.
Me: Atticus, do you give Chicken Little 5 stars?
Atticus: yesh

Where's the Fire?

Atticus & Dad dressed up for Halloween as firemen. We had a great time! He would say "trick or treat" at about half of the houses, but overall a good first outing.

Hubba Hubba!
