A message from Owen to his buddy


Hey Graham!

Going to the pumpkin patch with you today was fun.  Sometimes my mom tells me we're going to go do something fun, but it turns out to be a really bad idea and I don't have fun at all.  Like when we went to Kindermusik or the time they took me to the zoo and it rained the whole time and all there was to look at was a bunch of cats.  But today really was fun.
Before I forget - I'm really hoping you'll put in a good word for me with the big kid crowd.  Maybe you could avoid telling them that I still ride in a baby car seat?  Besides, I'm getting a big boy one like yours for my birthday in a few weeks.  And maybe no one has to know that I wet all over myself in my stroller today?  I mean, let's be honest, it's happened to all of us, and the embarrassment and shame should really fall on my mother for not changing me sooner.  Oh, and I'm sorry I wigged out on the way home when you were trying to tickle me.  I was getting really sleepy and plus I think all that sweet potato pie we ate at the farm was starting to get to me.  You should have heard the one I let rip when we were at the pharmacy this afternoon.  The teenager who checked us out had to try really hard not to laugh, and my mom turned all red and apologized.

I think the best part of today was going out to the pumpkin patch to pick out our own pumpkins.  Our moms kept warning us about all the sticker burrs on the bushes and they didn't even hurt.  I had one go all the way through my pants leg and I didn't even cry.  Seriously, I think it broke the skin and I didn't shed a tear.  I mean it may have even stuck all the way in my leg bone and I didn't let out a whimper.

Oh yeah- remember when we saw that giant monster fly get inside my mom's Pepsi bottle and we didn't tell her?  After we got home, she took the bottle out of her bag and started drinking it with the dead drowned fly in it!  She didn't even notice until she got near the end and something tickled her lip.  It was awesome.  I think she drank 50 gazillion glasses of water afterward to try to make it better.  Dad says Mom needs to drink more water anyway.

OK well bye for now.  
Later, 
---Owen

p.s.  My mom found some of your Cheerios in my carseat after we got home, so I think we may be busted.  Just want you to know I'll cover for you since I begged you to feed me some even though you weren't supposed to.

Remember last Halloween? There was a pumpkin involved but not in a field...

Shelley - you are so CREATIVE!!! I love it!!! I would have NEVER thought of this when Karson was little!! I am laughing so hard that I have tears rolling down my face! I love the part at the pharmacy! You are certainly your mother's daughter! I loved the journal she kept for you and Scott while you were on vacation this summer!

Love to all three of you,

~Kari
