++Reading to Everett is fun for him, but also a memorization test for myself. I could do Brown Bear Brown Bear, and Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaur with my eyes closed backwards and forwards.
++I close all doors at all times, and in all places very slowly and very quietly, regardless if Everett's sleeping or not out of habit. I found myself doing it at a friends house the other day, making sure the lock didn't click just right.

++Legitimate conversations between Ben and I:

++The backseat of our car has become a place where fruit snacks and goldfish go to die.
++This (see below) was in my hair for a couple hours before I noticed, through the entire grocery store, the drive home, lunch and naptime:
++If you see a cart full of groceries just left and abandoned in the middle of the store, you know there was a toddler there recently who threw a tantrum so epic, the best thing to do was just abandon ship and get the heck out of there.
++Toddlers are the weirdest most hilarious little humans and (for the most part) we are having a blast!
