Million Quotables from the Week

I tried searching hard for some analogy about this week.
Analogies are not often my strong point, and yet I feel compelled to make them.
You're not even going to get any similes or metaphors.
(Easy reading, be gone.)

Actually, you can sit back and relax on this one.
It's not like I'd actually bore you with details about every single thing that happened in life this week.
That would be so....bloggish.

Here is the summary:

  • We were self- and doctor-quarantined because of exposure to whooping cough and prophylactically medicated (for Million and November Boy's sake).
  • Michael's crate business has taken another exciting turn, and we will now be vendors in a store near Philadelphia.
  • November Boy is supposedly 17 inches long and 3.5 pounds, if you average four different "how's my baby growing" websites.  He also has use of all five senses, if you trust what you read online.  
  • I played with two new stains because apparently according to all of the marketing books and what have you, our Christmas "line" is supposed to already be made and in our shop inventory.  Hardy har har.  So I experimented with an antique red stain, and I'm not sure if I like the results or not.  I much prefer natural wood tones.
Please note. I don't actually have my Christmas decorations out.  These are the "what never made it back into storage because I procrastinated" decorations.  I'm setting up an actual Christmas decoration day in...  get this...October, so we can photograph things for our shop. Because if we wait into November, I'm sure my pregnancy will cause much lack of ambition.
There.  The week in a nutshell.  

Million has been saying some "doozies" this week.  I've posted a few on facebook, but here are some more.

I did take him into a store once, because we were getting so stir crazy.  He talked all the way into the store and during while I was putting him into the cart.  The lady behind me patiently waited to get a cart, and as I apologized for taking so long, she said "He sure has a lot to say, doesn't he?"  To which Million replied in his loudest voice possible "The lady say I have a lot to say.  I do have a lot to say! I say a lot!"  Only about 20 people started laughing at him/me. 

And there was the bit in the same store where I took him into the restroom (hooray! he successfully told Mommy he needed to go!), and a woman was adjusting a....pants problem in back.  And Million say "That lady touch her bottom! That lady pull her pants down and up and down and up!"  (I'm actually surprised he didn't start singing "The pants on the lady go up and down" to the tune of The Wheels on the Bus go Round and Round, since he normally inserts words into that song whenever he references up and down.) 

Moral of the story: Don't adjust your pants in front of toddlers, unless you want to be humiliated.
