This is usually a look at the hilarity and the OMG moments of parenting. However, I found this month's Shiver Me Timbers Tuesday to be pretty difficult to write. Either The First Mate has become amazingly well behaved, or I have become accustomed to all the crazy things he does.
So instead I will recap some of the less WTF moment and more awe moments.
On a recent trip to Disneyland he had a blast playing with the giant ball in Tomorrow Land. It glides and rotates through flowing water. The First Mate couldn't get enough of it and just kept saying "Weee!"
We also saw a cool Pirate band at Disneyland! The First Mate seemed to be a little shy, but still enjoyed it.
He may have been shy with the Pirate tunes, but he has developed his musical talent playing the piano. Maybe we have the next Beethoven.
We also reached a milestone in every boy's life. The First Mate had his first skinned knee, poor guy.
Another first was the Slip 'n Slide! He didn't quite get the hang of it, but he still had a blast playing and getting soaked.
The First Mate has really learned how to play and use up all of his energy. Lucky for us, we don't always have to keep up with him.
In true Shiver Me Timber's Tuesday fashion, I did enjoy this new nursing move.
