ONE OF THOSE???? Excuse me?!?! One of those? I didn't know what to say. I just kept on walking. I am still learning when it comes to stupid people and Christian when to say something and when to just walk away. My child is not "one of those". He is the best little boy in the world and one of my greatest blessings.
Other stupid comments made over the past year:
"How much did he cost?"
"He must look like his dad."
And my all time favorite that was said to us more then once while I was pregnant with Emma- "Now you will have a child of your own".
I know not everyone means to be stupid when they make certain comments. As Christian gets older and can understand what some of this things mean and how some people are stupid, I need to be able to deal with the situation. I can't fix the world's stupidity or shield Christian from it, but I can teach him that he is an amazing person that makes me want to be a better person. I am the luckiest woman in the world to have that special little boy call me mommy.

This is Taylor's
pink new room.
This is Christian's new big boy room.
He LOVES his new bed.
I will post pictures of Jessi's and Emma's room as they get finished. It's a fun project, but pretty exhausting. I am determined to get something done to my room...even just a new bed set since Christian got red fingernail polish all over my current comforter. Every room in the house has been done to some point since we built but my bedroom. It has always been just a whole bunch of hodge podge items. My bedroom better be next!!

On another note, Christian starts school tomorrow. I signed him up at his day care for a toddler class where I thought they just learned songs and actions and things. I was wrong. It's like pre-preschool. He is going to learn things. I am having serious issues with him doing this. What happened to the little boy we brought home who couldn't talk or walk yet? Now he doesn't stop talking and he is always on the move. I know he will have fun at "Tangling With Toddlers", (that's what they call the program) but it's just another sign that he is growing up. They have a show and tell bag, a treat bag and even field trips! It'll be great! I just hope he behaves...he can be a bit naughty at times. But he's so cute he gets away with it.

Fast forward to two days ago.
We are in the middle of a small remodel/reorganizing project at our home (more about that in a future post). I decided to clean out some of the cluttered cupboards and closets in the house. While tackling a particularly messy cupboard in the kitchen, I discovered the disposable camera from our train ride last December. I had forgotten about the camera and the pictures it contains. I set it on the counter and decided that tomorrow I would take the last few pictures and then take it in to get developed.
Fast forward to yesterday.
I am in the bathroom just getting out of the shower and getting ready to start my day when I hear Christian walk into the room.
"Mommy, picture" he says.
This doesn't phase me because Christian is always picking up remote controls, memory card readers or cell phones and pretending they are a camera. He asks you to smile and makes a little clicking noise. It is very cute.
This time however it was not so cute.
After he says "Mommy, picture" I see a flash and hear the sound of a camera click. Not the cute little click noise Christian makes when he is pretending to take a picture but a very real camera click. Upon turning around I discover, to my horror, that Christian has found the disposable camera from our train trip and has just taken a picture of me topless. Completely topless. No shirt, no bra. Nothing.
What do I do now?!?! The pictures from the train ride were, I hope, all very cute. I can't just throw the camera away. I do not however wish to be the one who gives the 17 year old kid at the photo lab a thrill by letting him develop my nudie pictures.
