Cute Kid Stories & Nolan's Birthday  
Happy birthday to my sweet husband, nolankyle !

On the phone and near the food.  Two perpetual things he does.

Oh.  And snaking my laptop, having a beer and looking at the Paramount Baseball League Website, moaning about how his guys are stinking it up.  He does that, too.

He loves his boys.  He's a great dad, training up our little men in the way they should go.

Even though I tease him mercilessly, I adore him.  And he loves me, too. 

So happy forty-first, Captain America.  You don't look a day over thirty-nine.  ;)


(So we're going into Wal-Mart (rawr) yesterday, and Nolan says something to the kid in the car next to us.  The kid's just sitting there and eating his breakfast.  I think Nolan asked him if he'd share, just joking around.)

Aaron.  Dad, don't do that.

Nolan.  Do what?

Aaron.  Talk to people you don't know.

Nolan.  More people need to be friendly.  It's not bad to talk to people.  Not everyone is John Wayne Gacy.

Me. Hey, babe?  I don't know that you should be making parallels between yourself and a serial killer to the eight year-old.

Aaron.  (scoffs and rolls his eyes)  Pfft.

Me.  What?

Aaron.  You can't kill cereal.

***

So yeah.  We didn't damage him that time.  Dodged a bullet, there.

***

(Yesterday, Ethan had just finished his first audition - Tom Sawyer - and we were at Rudy's, about to eat dinner.)

Ethan.  I  wiped off the table.

Me.  I'm shocked.  You cleaned it off?

Ethan. (gets that 'look' he gets when he's messing with me) Yeah.  I poured some of this barbeque sauce on it and scrubbed it with a napkin.

Me.  Listen, Pal.  Just because you auditioned for Tom Sawyer doesn't mean you can start lying all the time.

Ethan.  It's not lying, Mom.  It's acting.  (Scoffs)

Me.  ....  Um.  Right.

***

What am I supposed to say to THAT, I ask you?

Completely off topic and I think you'll hate me.

Was cleaning the spare room and discovered that mom got a new figurine of an owl. I laughed and thought of you and Frank.
Carrie Leigh: Frank the creepy ass owlcarrie_leigh on September 20th, 2010 02:01 pm (UTC)
I think it's funny that you associate me with owls. :D
Lauradream_mancer on September 20th, 2010 02:02 pm (UTC)
Yup. You've ruined me. Well, technically Frank ruined me.
Carrie Leigh: I'm not insensitive i just don't carecarrie_leigh on September 20th, 2010 02:03 pm (UTC)
Yeah, Frank's ruined a lot of people.

I saw dolphins in Mexico last month and I TOTALLY thought of you. I even considered emailing you the photos... I figured you'd appreciate the distance. :)

The further away the better, I think. *nod*

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Nolan Kyle! :D

That last picture is nice. Where was it though? I don't remember you ever being in the forest. Is that a set piece for a play?

You're funny, Chee-vay.

We were in Angelfire, with the Nances.
seegrim: hand daisyseegrim on September 20th, 2010 04:32 pm (UTC)
Hahaha! It's only so funny because I had that same thought. ;) (And, Carrie, I'd be hard pressed to find a picture of me in a forest as well, obviously.)

Happy birthday, Nolan!
Carrie Leigh: i got lostcarrie_leigh on September 21st, 2010 01:36 am (UTC)
It was more like the edge of the forest, because, you know... it's forest. Creepy crawly things are out there. Ick.

That cracks me up - Cereal Killer! ^_^ The most dangerous kind there is...Cap'n Crunch and Count Chocula had better watch their backs!

By the way, tell Nolan a stranger said "Happy Birthday!" And his cereal is safe with me. I won't hurt it.

Nolan has an LJ! He ha succumbed! (or has he had it for awhile and I just didnt know? >.>)

Also, owls and dolphins (and small woodland creatures) remind me of you, too. But so does Catherine Zeta Jones and the movie version of the musical Chicago.
Mala13oct on September 20th, 2010 04:48 pm (UTC)
LOL I think of you Carrie every time I see Chicago too. And it happens quite often as its one of the very few movies that I like. :)

Happy Birthday Nolan!
Carrie Leigh: Chicago - happycarrie_leigh on September 21st, 2010 01:39 am (UTC)
I made Nolan an account so that he could read my journal unencumbered. He doesn't USE it. Though I maintain he should.

LOL. I love my woodland creature/owl/dolphin rep.
Elle Blessingway: Pink Kisselle_blessing on September 21st, 2010 02:01 am (UTC)
My Matt had one too... that he also doesn't use *grumbles*

Speaking of ... :D

between acting on stage and acting next to the dinner table? the lesson is there's a time and place for everything and the acting is a fine and dandy thing, in the right time and place.
