No Girls Allowed


While M was relaxing in sunny Isle of Palms, the boys had a total ManTime weekend. No smelly girls or anything. It was totally awesome. And yes, there was food involved.

On Friday night we took advantage of our new stylish urban living and walked down to Fuel Pizza.

Sam perused Creative Loafing while we waited for our pizza. He’s all about the local music scene.

We thought about getting matching tatts across the street, but on second thought decided we’d wait until we could go to Midnight Iguana in Athens.

mmm… pepperoni…

(Not pictured: how, when working to get the very-hot pizza out of Sam’s eager reach, I let the whole pie start to slide off the tray. With half a pizza dangling from a fresh-from-the-oven pan, which was in my bare hands, I was able to scramble and salvage most of the toppings. Catastrophe averted.)

Several hours later, while working on unpacking and straightening, I happened upon this scene in the downstairs background. I have no idea who’s responsible.

Saturday morning we had pancakes. And Sam carried Stripes around by the trunk. In his mouth.

Then the couches were delivered. Pictures to follow.

Then we went to the park, meeting up on the way with our new friends the Perris from church. I didn’t get to take pictures. But Sam tore up the playground, recovered very quickly from a fall off a swing, played some more, and was rushed home with me practically shouting at him to keep him awake for lunch.

After his nap we tossed the ol’ pigskin around a bit to celebrate the Dawgs’ win. (Because the whole affair, from kickoff to final score, took place during his nap.)

And then, to DQ to share half a Blizzard™ (the rest we saved until after dinner).

Finally (for Saturday), no ManTime is complete without JAMBALAYA!! Sam did very well with his fork and ate all the sausage out. I gave him more.

No pics from Sunday, but here are the highlights:

  • Left the house 2 minutes ahead of schedule for church.
  • Went totally bink-less in the nursery, and didn’t cry either time I dropped him off.
  • More pizza at Brixx with our buddy Mr. Peter and a new friend Tim we met at church.
  • Nap.
  • Awesome time at the Sprayground with Maggie.
  • Mom finally came home! We were totally stoked. I slept in Monday.

We don’t want Mom running off all the time, but ManTime rocks.

  1. Fun pics. Both of my kids carry their “lovies” around in their mouths. It’s weird and the lovies get crusty but they don’t seem to mind.

  2. “Perused Creative Loafing” or “beat the table with a steel rod”? The picture seems to indicate the latter.
