My Son, The As Seen on TV Boy

I might have to change his name on here to TASOTV. Wanna know why?

It's Spring here and we've been spending nearly every nice minute outside. However, the long cold winter has obviously taken it's toll.

"Boy, I have heartburn from my medicine going down the wrong way," I comment to TPJ as we're cuddling.
"Mommy, I know something that will take care of that! It's the little purple pill, have you seen it? It soothes your heartburn before it starts! And it gives your heart a little love." As I'm giggling, he takes my face in his hands and says, "Don't laugh! It's serious!"

What's terrible is that this isn't the first time he's presented us with an infomercial. My "happy" pills (zoloft is my drug) have advertisments too, apparently. TPJ wanted to know the other day if I was taking my happy pills, so that my face wouldn't be sad or mad. Yes.
Oh, and he continually talks about the Topsy Turvy, a tomato growing device that grows from a hanging position. And lets not forget Blendy Pens! Or Debbie Meyer's Green Bags. "If you want to save money, Mommy, you should buy Debbie Meyer's Green Bags! They'll save your vegetables and fruits for a WHOLE MONTH! It's only 19.99, see, Mommy?"
So why is it obvious that the winter took its toll on him? Obviously he sat in front of the TV more than we realized. And can I blame him? Heck no. On a cold day, all I want to do is curl up on the couch with a book and hot chocolate. Makes sense that he wanted to curl up on the couch with a blanket and a remote. :)

The Pantless Jedi is easier to remember, however, so I think he'll just stay TPJ. But thank goodness it is spring and we can get our butts off of the couch!

Starbuck had her first tea party this weekend. One of my BFF's let her precious darling girls spend the night with us on Saturday. They brought their tea set. So we had a tea party.

I'm getting a new laptop soon--- next month, to be exact! I'm pretty excited about that! I may blog more when I have that baby! Right now, it's just too hard to sit at the PC and blog--- especially when there is a line for the computer. Three people sharing one computer is two too many, I think! :) Spoiled much? NAH!

And lest you think I'm favoring Starbuck by posting her pic, here are two of TPJ. He's getting too big for words.

I don't mean to frighten you, but the more I hear about TPJ, the more I'm reminded of myself as a small boy ...
