Nope. That Ain't Makeup!

So I think Caleb will be dressing up as Harry Potter this Halloween. See?

He already has the famous lightning scar! No, that's not makeup.

Unfortunately, those marks are the real deal. Caleb got a little too friendly with our bed frame this morning while watching Cars. Metal frames and small boys do not go well together. Just in case you thought otherwise . . .

We love our "new look" here at home. The new arrangements are, however, making a clumsy boy out of our son. He's not used to all the new furniture positions, as proven this morning when he ran/hit/smacked into the bed frame. It'll take some adjustment on his part to re-learn where everything is. Hopefully we can keep those bruises to a minimum, though. I wouldn't want ya'll thinking I'm a bad parent or anything. ;)

In other news, I'm working hard to get our house back to normal this week. I'm not only doing this because I'm an organizer-bug and can't stand clutter, but because Jason is leaving this weekend for his first ever business trip. =)

*fanfare plays in the background*

(and just so's ya know, that fanfare was because I'm proud of him, not because I'm excited to get rid of him).

Yep! His work is sending him to Cambridge, MA for six days. And I am really proud of him. He works so hard! This trip is quite an event for him, even if he's going strictly on business.

So it'll just be me and Caleb next week. Oh, and Natalie and Elizabeth. Ha! I bet you thought I was gonna wing it alone for a week, right? Yeah, I'm not that adventurous (no laughing, Ashleigh, please). So dearest Natalie and lovliest Elizabeth are coming to keep us company while Hubby's away.

Anyway, time to start dinner and put away a few more pieces of "junk" before teaching tonight. The house is really looking super and we're all thrilled with the changes so far. I'll try to post pictures later this week. Happy Monday!

Can't wait to see your new setup. :) And, hey, I never said it's fun to go it alone--get all the help you can. (As evidenced by the number of nights you spent at my house. ;))
