Who the hell is Bob Dooley?

Hello again... I know, I know.  It's been a completely ridiculous amount of time since I last posted, but I have to tell you that you haven't missed too much.  It's been a LONG few weeks waiting for the next big event... waiting to sign the court petition.  We officially sign on Monday, the 19th and our agency will hand deliver it that week.  We're still hoping for a court date some time around the middle of May.

We've gotten more stuff together and finished some household projects.  I've gotten a couple of FABULOUS gifts and prizes from friends and family members, and given a couple to myself!  My lovely sibling bought me a Peg Perego Twin Aria 60/40... Ooooh, it is so cool!  It only weighs 19 pounds and collapses nice and flat.  I'm a little in love.  The best part is that there is no middle wheel, so when you're trying to walk quickly, you're not constantly kicking that thing in the middle!

I broke down and bought myself a Skip Hop Duo Diaper bag.  Sigh.  Another purchase that I want to take to bed and cuddle!  It's been touted as one of the better diaper bags for families with multiple diaper wearing small humans.  I am in the process of packing it for our trip, and I have to admit, I start to hyperventilate a little every time I think about it.  Somehow packing diaper bags and getting clothes ready makes it a bit more real.  Here's a photo of the diaper bag so you can admire it...

And here's the one of the best biggest surprises EVER!  I came home from work on Tuesday at the same time Lance did.  I was saying "Hi" to Jack and getting a little pre-schooler love when I hear Lance yell from the front foyer (I came in the back door) "Why is there a Bob Dooley in our foyer?"  Genteel soul that I am,  I yell back "Who the hell is Bob Dooley?"  I walk around the corner and find a brand new, still boxed up Bob Revolution Duallie stroller.  I stare blankly at him, we stare at the box...  then Nana comes around the corner and says, "Oh, I forgot to tell you, Amy brought this stroller by for ya'll."  WTH?  Of course I call her right away to clarify that she has indeed lost her mind and given me this amazingly generous and thoughtful gift.  Yep.  She did.  How crazy, insane, over the top is that?  I still can't believe it. Thanks, Amy.  You are too kind.  Of course, I shall include a photo of the aforementioned marvelous stroller...

That's all the news that is news around here.  Now back to our regularly scheduled waiting......


  1. You are going to love your Bob!! I've got the Bob Revolution, same color as in your picture and I love it. I walk almost daily and that thing is a breeze to push. Once you start using it, you'll hate using a normal buggy. When I go to the mall and use our Chico, I keep checking to see who put the parking brake on, or checking to see if one wheel is locked b/c it's so dang hard to push compared to the Bob. The Bob is truly one hand pushable (is that a word?) and you will love it!

  2. I am with Susan - we have the single, same color scheme and LOVE IT. So great it's all coming together for you!
