On the Banks of the Old Raritan

24 01 2012

I love Tuesdays. Tuesday morning is Music Class day. We get out of the house for over an hour, I can walk there, my friend Allison is in the class, and Ben loves it (by loves it, I mean he screams, runs around, steals items from other strollers, sometimes poops, dances, and just causes general ruckus). Sounds fun, right? So many great things about Tuesday. Except when our teacher keeps cancelling class! This is the second week in a row I got up and showered for NOTHING (well, normal people shower everyday, so I guess this isn’t such a bad thing). So, instead of music class today, we went to Allison & Asher’s for a playdate! The second best part of this (first being how much I enjoy hanging out with them) is that they live upstairs in our building. I know!

Since Ben is hopefully going to go to Rutgers, I like to periodically dress him up in Rutgers garb. It’s like a subliminal message with his clothes. Dan selfishly wants him to go to USC (so he can visit Southern CA), but I have a feeling he’ll follow in Mom & Dad’s footsteps and life will take him to the banks of the Old Raritan…

Here are the boys during their playdate. Ben repeatedly gets mad at Asher for trying to be his friend. I really hope this is just a stage and Ben isn’t “that kid”. I don’t think he will be with such fun and awesome parents like Dan and myself, but one can never really be sure.

Are you kidding me with those dimples?  Asher is the best. I can’t wait for them to be best buds and pick up chicks together. Asher has some pretty cool duds, so we’ll have to do a co-fashion post with these two cute men.

They already are best buds, Ben just doesn’t know it yet! He’s looking back at Asher and thinking this kid again? Love the pic! Next time I’ll make sure Asher is sporting his best fashion blog worthy threads and not still wearing his pj’s at noon:)
