Bad Birds and Bad Bugs

So for those of you that know me, you know I'm always laughing at my mother in laws 24 hour adventures. Well guess what she actually had a 96 hour adventure in China last week. (Gran correct me if I'm wrong..maybe it was only 72 hours?) She loves to travel, and don't get me wrong so do we, but not for just a day or two :) Any who so back to where we were, she went to Hong Kong for a few days and called me this evening to see if she could stop by. I said, of course and right when she walked in Jack got a huge smile and said "Grandma!!!"
She said his favorite word "present" and he dove in....

We have hex bugs, but she ended up getting us new bugs that actually look more like bugs. Gran you will like this...Debbie (neighbor) came over to ask me a question about the Easter party tonight and she right away said "hey where did you get THOSE bugs"...
So we are feeling very special to have some one of a kind "bad bugs" as Jack calls them.
If you don't keep them in the track these little stinkers are hard to find in your house if you let them go! We lost the red/black one for a few hours and Daddy ended up finding it under the couch.

And as if that was cool enough, she got him his very own "bad bird" t-shirt! I made the mistake of telling him when we were putting his pajamas on that I was going to wash the shirt so that he could wear it tomorrow.... yet I failed to realize my two year old doesn't know what tomorrow is. So we had a little struggle at bedtime tonight because he was insisting on wearing the shirt to bed...lol
I won. But make no mistake it will be clean for the morning! His night time routine includes two lovies and his "red bad bird"... yes, that one that was tossed from a float during mardi gras..has now made it in to bed with him every night...lol

I love this age!

He went to give Gran a huge hug on his own, such a sweet boy! Thank you so much for thinking of Jack and picking out the most perfect little gifts for him! Until your next adventure... xo

Kevin's mom sounds like a hoot - I can't wait to meet her! I love that she went to Amsterdam for a couple of hours. :)

I need my own jet setting Gran to go pick up things like perfume and designer clothes from Paris! (Don't we all?)
