Warrior Homecoming Parade!

Uncle Chris, Aunt Amy, Unborn Cousin Nolan, Cousin Rambo, Grammy, Mommy, Mc & Max all went to the Glenpool Homecoming parade last Tuesday. It was perfect weather and both boys really enjoyed the entire parade. Rambo, however, did not enjoy the Harleys or fire truck, nor the annoying little kid and dog next to us! I was surprised how much Max liked the noise. Aunt Amy covered his ears when the sirens were going off, but we soon realized he was thoroughly excited about the commotion. Mc got the hang of waving and looking cute and made a killing in the candy department (which Mommy hid immediately once we got home!) We also discovered that both boys are HUGE fans of suckers! New bribery treats!

Such talent


Mommy, Grammy, Mc and Max all loaded up and met Kathy, Aiden, Uncle Chris and Aunt Amy at the Tulsa State Fair last Sunday. We ate, rode, petted, fed, and watched all day. We ate snow cones, corn dogs, polish dogs, cotton candy, popcorn, and shrimp on stick (obviously not one person eating all of the above, but we probably tried a bite of all). Mc and Aiden rode rides like crazy. Mc even talked Uncle Chris into riding the big bumpy slide. We went to the petting zoo. As I mentioned in the Disney on Ice post, Mc had kinda worn out his welcome at the zoo and he was tired of it as well, so Max and Grammy got to do some petting alone while Mommy and Mc strolled the strip. We all got to watch the dog trick show and see the sea lions pose for pics. Over all it was a very successful outing with lots of fun. The boys were tuckered out and didn't make it home awake!
Max was a huge fan of all the animals

But really like the goats

He really, REALLY wanted them to eat out of his hands

He is just the cutest

He finally found a goat just his size that allowed him to "pet" his head

Mommy and Mc had a day all to themselves last Friday. Daddy had prepared Mc to see Buzz skate all morning, so he was definitely ready and anxious. He didn't quite get what we meant by Buzz will be "skating". He began saying, Buzz has a skateboard? The only way he knows anything about a skateboard is from "Donald's" (aka McDonald's) recent happy meal prize. Anyways, I don't think he ever noticed the ice or ice skates on any of the characters. The show was good, but way too long for my lil boy. It didn't help that there were several "princess" themed skits in the first hour before intermission. Yes, I said first hour! Then, Buzz, the main attraction for Mc, was the very last skit!
Mc got to pick out 1 "prize" and 1 "nack". He chose a Buzz sword, which is weird cause I never noticed Buzz with a sword, and popcorn. Mc immediately wanted to trade in his sword for a spinny light up Mickey Mouse thingy when the boys were walking around selling them at intermission. He also wanted a "no cone" (snow cone) instead of popcorn. He only had a slight breakdown and no one else noticed, so it was ok. Mc brought along his baby Buzz and baby Woody to show "Daddy Buzz" his baby. He told me this the whole ride there and when the show started he poked Baby Buzz through the railing to show him off.
Mc was fine and very entertained for the first 20 minutes. The next 20 minutes he got antsy, but since we were on the front row all by ourselves in our section, I let him roam up and down the aisle. Then the last 10 minutes before intermission he was demanding to go talk to Mickey down there. This is when we left to walk around. Little did I know that intermission was next, so I had to entertain a 2 year old in the lobby for nearly half an hour while the vendors were shoving toys and treats in his face. Not fair! The show started back up and he was immediately bored. So we walked inside the Pavilion arena, went to the restroom (both of them), and then seat jumped until Buzz FINALLY made his appearance. Mc was in awh, but was disappointed he didn't get to talk to him.
After the show we walked back through the fair and stopped by the petting zoo before Mc had had enough and had a slight melt down thus our exit.
It was a very long afternoon, but I loved every minute of my one on one time with my big boy!

Mc refusing to take a pic with Mommy. He sworded the camera multiple times.

And then I got him to sit still, but didn't realize he refused to look at the camera. So this is my awesome Mommy & Mc pic.

In awh

Still entertained

And the reaction to the Princesses

This is where we landed for the Buzz skit

He couldn't understand why they wouldn't come over to him....they were so close

He had just dumped his entire feed cup into the trough

And this is him demanding more

And this is just before the goat snatched the cup out of Mc's hands and probably forever traumatized him and made him hate goats

Those of you around Mc a lot know he is full of surprises and entertainment. Those of you that are not as lucky are truly missing out on one of the most intelligent, goofy little boys I have ever known. Just to open the door and let you peek in to a lil bit of Mc life, I have listed some of his most recent acts:

  • Grammy and I took the boys to the fair on Saturday (pics are coming soon). On the way home Mc said, "Grammy?" Grammy, "What?" Mc, "Grammy, I just want to know where you want me to put my boogers?" This is where Grammy and Mommy are trying very very hard not to burst in to laughter. Grammy, "Here is a napkin." Mc, "Thanks Grammy."

  • Mc is in the long process of potty training, we haven't got to the serious potty training part, just introducing the idea. So, Mc is sitting on the toilet and Grammy, says "are you done?" nothing has "came out" which is not uncommon. Mc, "Oh," as he thinks something is about to happen and raises his eye brows, then says, "nope, I just farted." Gotta love boys.
  • Mc is in the back seat of my car. Mc says, "Oops, I stepped on a frog." This is Grammy for he farted.

  • Mc had recently learned that there were such things as "Man Cars." He used to hear a loud engine and run to the door or outside looking for his Daddy's car. Unfortunately, he now goes to the old impala in the garage at the house and pats it because he understands that "Daddy's man car broke" :(

  • Mc acts out very precise scenes in his "tb" movies. His favorites are Madagascar and Toy Story. Mc and his Daddy can do the entire father/son scene in Madagascar 2. He also does all his "cool tricks" like Alex, even dancing in slow motion. Its quite a site.

  • Mc is eating Teddy Grahams and is making the bears talk to each other and himself. He has two talking back in forth in a high pitched voice. Bear #1 says "Hi there bear. Don't eat me!" Bear #2 says, "I won't eat you." Mc voice says, "Hi bears." Bear #1 says, "Don't eat me!" Bear #2 says, "Please help!" Mc says, "Are you crazy, you're just crackers," as he chomps their heads off. Bears #1 & #2 scream. Mc, "Ha Ha, you don't have heads."

Ah, with this lil boy around there is never a dull, nor quiet, moment. He talks like he is 16.

  • Most 2year olds answer with a "yes" or "no". Our Mc, "sure" or "nah".

  • He loves to "argue". He will say, "Mommy, you say, strike him out." I say, "strike him out," Mc says, "NO! Hit a homerun." Then I say, "No!! Strike him out!" Mc, "No, Mommy, I say that now. You say, hit a homerun." This goes on the exact same way for at least 5 exchanges.

  • If I tell him,"Mc, its about time for bed. You have 5 minutes." He says, "Mommy, don't say that." I repeat, "5 minutes." Mc, "I can't hear you."

Mc isn't always as ornery as I may make him seem...

  • Mc tells secrets. They are always the same secrets. "I love you soooo much." or "You make me soooo happy." It will melt your heart.

  • Mc and I were walking to the park. Mc says, "this is soooo fun, Mommy. You make me soooo happy" while skipping along the sidewalk. Then says, "Mommy, I'm gonna get you a sucker so you can be sooooo happy." Love him!
  • Mc gives "slobbers," kisses that must be wiped off of your cheek for obvious reasons.

  • Mc can chant "NU ORK ANKEES" and "DER-WICK JE-TER" follwed by clap clap clap- courtesy of Daddy

  • Mc sings Boomer Sooner and has recently learned "BOOO TEXAS" while attempting to do upside down longhorns with his hands, which really is him holding both hands upside down and dangling his fingers with a goofy face the whole time.
  • Mc secretly chants "GO RANGERS" when with Grammy and Uncle Chris. Shhhh, don't tell Daddy.

  • Mc was a born rocker. Since he was little he has fist pumped right along with his Daddy. Now that Daddy's man car is broke and he is driving a "normal" car with a radio, Mc demands Daddy turn on the radio so he can rock and immediately starts fist pumping to any song and says, "I rockin'!"
As you can tell, Mc is our pride and joy and most definitely our entertainment! These are the things that make me soooo proud and feel truly blessed that God picked me to be Mc's mommy. There is no other little boy like him. No one can ever describe the kind of happiness and love he brings to me, and, of course, everyone else.
