I'm changing up the look of the blog again. What can I say, I get bored.

I noticed that I have on the sidebar lists of things the boys love "at this moment in time." "This moment in time" was about two years ago. Before I erase things like that, I preserve them. I want to remember "this moment in time!"

These lists need to be updated, but a remarkable chunk of both is still relevant.

So here's Xander's old one and then Nick's below:

For a moment in time, Xander loves:

  • his cousin Bailey
  • talking, especially describing Legos
  • inviting classmates over for playdates
  • Mrs. Griffin
  • Lego sets and more Lego sets
  • poring over Lego brochures
  • Lego videos and computer games
  • reading by himself
  • imagining and playing adventures
  • his Mythology book
  • saying he is starving TO DEATH, Mom!
  • play-fighting with Nick
  • pets and stuffed animals
  • learning, baking, doing activities
  • Nature specials, esp. dinosaur ones
  • singing, especially with Nick at the dinner table
  • reciting what he's learned at school
  • Cedarmont Kids' songs
  • doing "what he's supposed to" at school
  • holding and petting Sandy
  • school

Nick loves:

  • riding the tricycle
  • his new wagon
  • Teddy Bear and Pooh
  • touching my hair when it's down
  • being tickled or touching foreheads
  • talking on the phone
  • running "super fast"
  • reading ocean-related books to himself for hours a day
  • puppets - he's not scared anymore
  • balloons!
  • Xander
  • Daddy
  • Cheetos and Jello, unfortunately
  • singing or humming on any occasion
  • children's songs
  • animals in the ark
  • drawing
  • throwing balls
  • playing figures during playtime
  • loudly singing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"
  • putting on a show whenever he can see himself (mirror, computer)


  1. What great lists. I really should make a list like this for my boys. I went over to the side bar and read the new ones as well. My youngest son is also loving the Wild Kratts. Both boys were looking at me like I had lost it when I mentioned their older show (that my oldest used to watch here and there) called Zoobomafo.

  2. Hahahaha. Some of those old ones sound outlandish now. :)
