Recent Declanisms + Photo of the Day

Declan: “I am going to put the new toilet paper on the roll.”

Aimee: “Awesome, thanks.”

Declan: [amusedly exasperated] “Because we keep running out! All the time!!!

Aimee: “I know, it’s a vicious cycle.”

Declan: “OR! … I like to call it ‘Running Out of Toilet Paper Every Day.'”


“Mama, I can’t bang my head to ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ with you right now. I am eating.”


[As I am rubbing his back as bedtime, on the day of the arrival of his Oma and Pata]

Declan: [with sleepy happy grin] “I am going to have my back rubbed all the time this week while Oma and Pata are here.”

Aimee: “That makes you happy, doesn’t it?”

Declan: “No. It makes me feel… loved.”


And P.S. The other cool news is I am PHOTO OF THE DAY over at LOOKING INTO. Be sure to go check it out and show me lots of love. Big wet sticky Internet love.

    Maypole, are you German too? All our Opas have passed on. “Pata” means godmother – who is also Declan’s great-aunt Heidi.
