With children there are so many firsts. Some people wildly celebrate all firsts. I think we've commemorated and celebrated many of Cal and Clark's firsts, and a lot of them we've commemorated here on the blog. For example, here is Teddy's first walk. Awww.

Another example:

The first time Teddy showed us his Concerned Citizen face. Awesomeness.

But today I'd like to commemorate some not-so-awesome firsts.

First of all, there's this:

The boys' first broken window. The answer to your first question is a wooden block throwing competition. The answer to your second question is $156 and the answer to your third question is no golfing at the driving range for $156 worth of golf ball buckets at one bucket a week average. ("But the crack is so pretty. Like a spider web."- Cal)

We've also recently had:

The first time crayons went into various body orifices:

Then this happened. The first time every shirt the boys own made it onto the living room floor. (It's a tarp for a rain delay, duh.)

 The first time I got an empty fortune cookie (creepy)

Teddy's first night of crying himself to sleep

The first time one of the twins messed with an electrical outlet

The first through forty-seventh time Teddy spit up down my cleavage

The first time Cal and Clark asked their little girl friend to lift up her shirt (mortifying, since her parents were both there too)

The first time Teddy sucked on a brother's nose

The first time Clark put a pacifier in his mouth as a four year-old

Just keeping it real, people. Keepin' it real.


  1. Well, at Woody's Golf Range...a large bucket is $10 so, we're looking at 16 weeks which is mid-November...

    1. Yep. That's where we go... It's gonna be a long haul.

  2. So much awesomeness with boys, huh? I have to say I am super-impressed with the ingenuity that went into the thought process of what to use in order to create a simulated rain delay tarp. Your kids are way smarter than mine. Way.

  3. Just saw this comment, Meg. I am also impressed with their ingenuity...sometimes it doesn't always add up to "smart," per se, but still. They're creative. :)
