  • It’s quiet

    You’re right. Littlejohnesque has gotten pretty quiet. It has everything to do with me – I’m losing weight and being all self centered about it. So self centered, in fact that I have an entire new blog based on my weightloss: http://www.littlejohnesque.com/shazam/

    The training wheels are off! Guinevere pretty much learned to ride without ever using training wheels. So proud. And Jude had his first ride on the tagalong behind me. He beamed with pride at being able to push pedals with daddy. I think we figured out what exercise 2.0 looks like for the Littlejohns!

  • Handerpants

    For those nevernudes out there. I was just looking for fingerless gloves for drawing on a capicitative screen and found more than I bargained for.

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.
