Who Are These Pants People?
Daddy Pants is a chef (score!) and master blackjack player. He enjoys gaming, wrestling with children so he can win, groundhogs, and making yummy food. He will also watch terrible 80's movies with you if you are so inclined. He is an avid tie dye wearer and believes in mixing metaphors. He one day hopes to fullfill his lifelong dream of winning the lottery. He does dishes, cooks and does laundry which make him awesome and very popular in this house. He is the one that has always understood Mr. Pants on a level that no one ever could. Here's a little story about that. This dude is the love of my life and I'd be lost without his crazy town antics.
Mr. Pants is four years old and full of awesome. He enjoys running, spinning, climbing, opening and closing things, flushing the toilet and pretending to talk on the phone. Other activities include, but are not limited to, telling me, "NO WAY!", wearing only socks and shoes, dancing to classic rock jams, being amazed and peeing standing up. He is kind, funny and will wear you out with his go go go which makes him unpredictable and cool. He can dance better than Michael Jackson and has no time for silly things like wearing clothes. We have been on a journey with this little dude since May of 2011 to discover what it is that makes him tick. He is cool to watch because he has figured out how to be the coolest kid in town despite a few obstacles. You can find his story all over this blog. Start here and then here. What about here? Also here and here.
Ms. Plum is 3 years old (sniff sniff) and enjoys laughing, farting, impersonating Bruce Lee, flailing about and nursing like Mary Lou Retton might have nursed as a toddler. An expert photobomber, She is no longer content to watch her brother's loony tunes craziness and be adorable. She wants in on the action (Save us!). Running naked on our gravel driveway is her latest achievement and also putting boxes on her head. Her current love affair is with all things Disney Princesses. Lord, help us. She has lost her gargantu-baby chub and that is depressing. She is the great equalizer in this family. She is calm and cool and no one is sure where she gets that from. But that doesn't mean she's a door mat. This girl has sassmatass for days. She has more style in her pinkie than the rest of us have combined. It's about to get all kinds of crazy in this house as she grows up. I have a feeling that her and Mr. Pants will be the best of friends while kicking each others butts up down and all around. Only time will tell. Here's some love for Plum. And also here.
