Lesson 223: We are now... VAN PEOPLE

We bought a van! I am going to start childcare from our home and we came to the realization that if I watched more than one kid (not including Ted) I would not be able to drive anywhere. We spent all day President's Day looking around at different car lots. We ended up with this beauty. I told Tyler we should name it. He suggested Fanny the Vanny hahaha. Much to Tyler's dismay, the name stuck. He wishes he had not suggested that name. 

In other news: Ted had his first Valentine's Day. He is holding his card from Grandma and Grandpa Mann. And he is wearing his shirt from Aunt Elspeth. In the lower picture he is wearing his bib from Grandma Opfar. 

Along with getting a van I also wanted to make the downstairs former "man cave" look more like the  playroom it is going to become. Tyler kept telling me I had to do all the painting by myself. Apparently I was not doing it right :) 
Ted likes to look through my zumba fitness box DVD set :)  
Ted now has 6 teeth.  
I am ashamed to say I used Mickey Mouse Clubhouse to occupy Ted while I made dinner one night. It was late, Ted was super hungry and I was rushing around to get food ready to go. I am also ashamed to say I really like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. My nephew Cooper used to watch it and I love all the songs hahaha.  


  1. There is absolutely no shame in letting your kid watch tv while you get dinner ready. Luckily for me, Curious George is on at 5:00 here, perfect for dinner prep. How did you paint with Ted around? We tried painting when Camille was little, but we couldn't keep her happy.

  2. The minivan looks good by the way--very grown up.
