Contrary to popular belief, I actually do feel great joy when I encounter the cuter things of the world. Like my three-year-old son, James.
And here he is in full effect.
Two hours ago, a tractor, a crane, and a pick-up truck with a trailer pulled into my neighbor's yard to do some kind of a complex landscaping project. James dragged this stool over to our front window, carefully climbed up for the view, and has been enjoying the man-action ever since.
He's all, "OOOOHHHHH MOMMY!!!! Dat man es usin' a so cooo CHAIN SAW!!!!" And then he gives me his very best impression of gas-powered machinery.
I might just sneak across the street tonight and pull up everyone of my neighbor's new bushes. That way these guys could entertain James again tomorrow--and I'd have some nice, new shrubbery.
