"Good Helper"

A story I just had to share...

Yesterday DJ and I went to Target to pick out a movie for him to watch since today is (as predicted) a very rainy day and school is closed. We picked out a movie and went to the check out line (which was a bit long) where DJ saw a toy that someone had obviously changed their mind about and set on the counter near the check out. I told him he could look at the toy if we wanted to. I asked him if he wanted me to hold his movie for him while he looked at the toy, he said, "Yes. Mommy you are a good helper." I just laughed :)

Aquarium of the Pacific

School's were closed for MLK day last month so Tessa and Brody invited us to go to the aquarium. It was DJ's first visit and he loved it. He wasn't ready to touch anything in the kid's touch tanks yet but really wanted one of the Lorakeets to jump on his finger (see picture below). We will definitely go back for more visits.

It was so funny, this bird just randomly landed on my back in the Lorakeet forest.

DJ was very excited to make cookies with mommy but wasn't really interested in eating any once they were done...guess he didn't inherit my sweet tooth!
