Things I learned lately- 12/17- 12/19/13

1. The reason the shopping carts at Ross have really tall poles on them is to stop you from leaving the store with the shopping cart.  Unfortunately, I learned this as Sammy and I tried to leave the store and slammed the pole into the wall above the doorway.  It was rather embarrassing.

2. When making hot chocolate for 3 and 4 year olds, it really needs to be lukewarm chocolate.  I ended up having to add several cups of ice to the hot chocolate to cool it down.

3. I thought our Polar Express party went really well Wednesday at Mother’s Day Out.  My kiddos looked adorable in their pjs, and I think they had lots of fun playing games, eating, and watching “The Polar Express.”

4. Mike and I saw “The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug” for his birthday Wednesday night.  It was so good!!!  I definitely recommend you see it in theaters, especially for the awesomeness that is Smaug.  I also really liked Tariel, played by Evangeline Lilly.  I nicknamed her “Elf Ziva.”

5. Stephen Colbert has a cameo in “The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug.”  I learned this from imdb.com.  I am sad I was not observant enough to realize it during the actual movie.

6. I still don’t know who won “The Amazing Race,” as my DVR is stupid.

7. BIG NEWS:  Sammy said “Mama” today!!!!   I was picking him up to put him in his car seat when he said it.  Mike didn’t hear him, so I bugged poor Sammy until he said it again.  I didn’t know two little syllables could be so exciting to hear!

Today was my second favorite Sammy moment, after this one, of course.
