Censored

Already, William understands the implications of a mom who blogs. "Don't put that on your blog," he warns, somehow knowing that the photo I want to show you is the one he doesn't want you to see. "Put this one (see above) on the blog. I like that one."

He didn't say I couldn't write about the photo though and the face a young boy makes when he is being dragged in the heat to see monuments and historical sites that he couldn't care a rat's patootie about. Suddenly, all his bones disappeared and he began sinking to the ground, unable to go another step.

We had fully intended to take a tour, ride the hop-on-hop-off bus, but each day, it seemed there were things we had to do first, places to be, and we never quite managed to get on that bus. So we walked. And William did not want to walk. I remember stories of another little boy (who grew up to be my husband) who also felt this way about sight-seeing. And Washington is a lot to see, not enough time to see it all, just time to get a glimpse.

Okay...I love that "his bones disappeared"...I so remember that stage with Brody.

Glad y'all had a good time, though I know you're exhausted!

To quote Larry the Cable Guy: I don't care who ya are, that's just plain funny!

also...
your copyright across your photo, at first I thought you had a tatoo across your left arm. Had me worried for a moment there. ;)

Hi Janie! I need to hop over to your blog and see what you've been doing.

Pita: Tatoos? Me? That's actually a blog I need to write - it seems tattoos are more prevalent in other areas of the country.

sounds like it was a fun trip - I'm concerned about the UFO visible high above the Capitol building though...

I'm always censored. My dh, my kids, .... even my nephew says "I hope Aunt Janet won't put *that* picture on her blog!"... sigh...
