A True Bradford

We found out June LOVES to watch herself in movie form... just like her dad and uncles.

These pictures were taken after we were trying to get her to stop crying.
In case you were wondering, she was watching this video:

Flashback like Father of the Bride

This video will probably be the first part of a montage that William will picture in his mind the night before June gets married (just like Steve Martin does in Father of the Bride, of course). Listen to William's lyrics... he made them up as he went along.
I just love these guys.

This one time...

Three years ago today,
this guy

asked this girl

to marry him.

She said yes.

Then she started coming around:

And that's pretty much it.

Of course, there was also this one time when we wanted to eat breakfast for dinner and we opened the waffle iron only to find that we accidently left a waffle inside from, like, 6 months prior and we argued for 10 minutes on who forgot to clean the waffle iron before putting it back in the cupboard.

(It was totally William.)

My first Mother's Day

Guess who also had their first Mother's Day last Sunday?

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!! I SHARE MY FIRST MOTHER'S DAY WITH KELLY KAPOWSKI AND WINNIE COOPER?!! What a dream... I knew I could be best friends with them someday.

I've mentioned before that William has a way with giving awesome gifts.
This time he did a scavenger hunt.
This is how it went...

He handed me this card as soon as I woke up:

At first I was like, "Get your own nasty breakfast, son!! It's MY day."
And then I realized it was a scavenger hunt.

So I checked the pantry:

Then the fridge...

With as much dignity as I could muster, I went into our bathroom and lifted the lid:

The next clue was taped on one of my favorite movies:

"The Joker has what he needs" is my favorite line from this Bradford video. (You have to listen really carefully when "Brad" {Daniel} says it in the background.)

Also, did you notice how William spelled "droor" on the card? I told William he spelled it wrong, and he said "No I didn't. Google it, it's there." So I googled 'droor' and this website came up. (Urban Dictionary is right...droor is better than a stupid drawer.)


The final gift was envelopes full of cash. William knows what I really want on holidays.
Thank you loves!

And thank you June for being my daughter... I love being your mom.

Merry May! (Pathetic Post)

(This photo makes me want to go on a picnic.)

May is one of my favorite months of the year: end of the school year projects and activities, last day of school, the beginning of summer, swimming, BBQ's, etc.

But I have a feeling this particular May is going to be slightly difficult.

I've been out on maternity leave for 8 weeks now. It's been lovely having time off and being able to get to know my little June. But starting tomorrow, I'm going back to school. I have to leave my Junie B.

I know there are only 4 weeks left of school, but I just can't bear the thought of leaving my little June for 8+ hours each day, 5 days a week, for the next 4 weeks! That's 160+ hours that I won't be able to look at this little face:

So unfortunately, I hope May goes by really really really fast.
Happy May Day.
