"I want to watch Caillou" (rewind and listen again to infinity). Oh yeah, crank the volume increasingly louder.
This chant is reverberating around the house tonight. This loud outburst instinct is like the shark that glazes his eyes during the predatorial attack. This is his singular mission. Nothing else matters but to watch that sly, bald-headed Canadian backtalking meddlesome toddler with the French name.

Benny is not going to watch Caillou. We are all smiles today (but not too euphoric to discipline our sweet Guatorean).

Life in the fast lane.
--
Want to know why we are all smiles? We rec'd all the acknowledgments from the government. If all goes well, I'll get the call to pick Everlie up within 30 days. While she might be screaming when I pick her up, at least she won't be screaming for Caillou.

The finishing touches aren't quite done, but here is a video of Benny getting Everlie's room ready for her. As you can tell at the end of the video, the next meltdown will be the realization that Daddy cannot find the missing "Credibles book". That would be The Incredibles book that Benny obsesses over at nighttime.

The nursery is beautiful! Benny is such a big helper! Everlie is so blessed to have him for a brother and you as parents! We're counting down the days with you!

I CAN"T WAIT to meet Everlie!!!!!
I love the carpet! It fits in so nicely with the rest of the room! Good job Geri!

Now if we could just get a sweet, little baby girl the room would be complete!!!
We love you guys!

"I'm just a kid who's four, each day I grow some more. I love to complain and whine, I'm Caillou!"
