Friday Fragments

--It was past time to get Manny a new pair of shoes, so I checked them out while we were at Target the other day. Much to my delight, I saw these cute retro looking sneakers that I thought were perfect. Manny, on the other hand, flipped.his.lid. when I took his shoes off to try these on him. Like bloody-murder-she's-slicing-me-with-razors screams. I managed to wrestle him down to get one on long enough to see that it fit right, and decided to take a chance and get them. After we left Target, we went through the drive-thru at Chick-fil-a to pick up dinner before church. While waiting in line, I suddenly see something go whizzing by my head and land in the front seat. I look down and it was one of Manny's shoes. I asked what he was doing, and he started screaming bloody murder (much like he'd just done in Target) wanting his shoes on. I told him he shouldn't have taken them off and thrown them, and turned around to give him his shoe when he starts saying, "No mama, other shoe. I want it! I want it! I want it! Shoooosh on I want it. Mama. Shoooosh on. I want it." I finally realized he was possibly asking for his new shoes, so I pulled them out of the bag and said, "These?" to which he wildy applauded and said, "Yay!! You did it!!" So yes. It actually was quite the accomplishment figuring out what he wanted as it's anybody's guess these days, and I'm not gonna was nice to be recognized with a little applause from the peanut gallery. Am I the only one with a bipolar toddler? Needless to say, he loves them now and talks about them all the time. For today anyway. :)
--Have you upgraded to the new iOS on your iPhone yet? I did but haven't had much of a chance to explore the changes. I did see the camera takes panoramic shots now, which is SUPER cool! (I've been told it only works with the 4s or 5 though.) We're in the process of changing Manny's room, so this isn't really decorated right now how it will be...but I just wanted to show what the camera can do. I think it will be so fun to have. I also LOVE the new Maps app! It talks to you and is amazing. So much better than the old version. Oh and the new emoticons!! There are some fun additions. Do you know of any new changes or fun things in iOS 6? If so, please share!

--Thanks for all of the entries in the bag giveaway! You guys are awesome and I loved hearing where everyone is from. And it was neat to see that some of you are local...we really need to have a blogger get together! On to the winners...

Happy weekend friends!!


  1. How much are they if I were to buy one?! :-)

  2. First time reading your blog, and I love it! I am pregnant with my second (I have a 3 year old son and am expecting our first daughter due in December) and just read both your birth stories - both were pretty crazy! Anyway, just wanted to say hi! :)

  3. Bipolar toddler?? So that's what it is! You are not alone girl! Maycee Belle can throw a fit with the best of them and them 5 minutes later be the sweetest little girl! It is wearing me out! Guess this is the terrible twos???

  4. OMG I WON!!! I have NEVER won anything in my life! Also. I called Cooper bipolar the other day and Lee freaked out and told me I should never say things like that. Glad to know I wasn't the only one saying that :)

  5. I love the "Yay, you did it!" response. How funny! Glad he ended up liking the shoes...This is the first of many instances in which Mr. Manny will learn that Mama does indeed know best:) It may have taken me 25 years to learn that hard lesson, but you can bet I know it now!

  6. LOL...had to laugh b/c I always say Cannon is bipolar. He can go from a complete, full out, throwing himself on the floor, drooling, screaming mess over absolutely nothing, then in the VERY NEXT laughing and talking about something else like it never happened.....these 2 year old boys are crazy hahahaha!


I love hearing from my readers and I appreciate every single comment left here! If you have a question, I will do my very best to answer it as soon as I can. If your email address is not linked to your blogger account (and if you're not sure, then it probably isn't) please leave it in your comment so that I can respond to you much quicker. Thanks for stopping by! :)
