Bucket Head

I have a couple of numbers to share with you. At least 14 different people have recommended a leash/safety harness for my son Michael. And at least 11 different people have asked me, "Hey, do you remember that movie Parenthood? You know the one with Steve Martin?". And I say, "Yes" (and I know what's coming next.) "Your son Jake totally reminds of that kid from that movie with the bucket on his head!". I totally agree. The blond curls, the disarming smile, his lack of intelligible speech and the missing link qualities of his daily activities.

And I swear to you I did not set up this picture series on purpose!!! The little monkey came up to me with a bucket on his head today and I scrambled around like a maniac looking for my camera, and praying that there was battery charge and memory space. I got lucky!!! (Please excuse the condition of my house we live like slobs)




























Ok I added the trailer to the movie Parenthood just in case you aren't following me. And I apologize ahead of time for the length of this trailer. "Dude, what length you ask it's 2 minutes and 35 seconds long?." "Yeah I know but my attention span is about 90 seconds and I refuse to watch videos longer than 2 minutes. And my friends send me videos and I lie and say that was great." And they are like," Really, because it was a snuff film?" And then I have to say, " Oh I must have missed that part. " .
Anyways Steve Martin is a comedic genius and Mary Steenburgen, she's so pretty, like the perfect mom. I hate Keanau Reeves but his role in this movie was quality.

When my daughter is going nuts and things are crazy around here I always think of the part in Parenthood with the rollercoaster. They are sat watching their kid wreck the play and they are riding an imaginery coaster. Thats how I feel sometimes.

Saw Steve Martin this year playing the banjo in Nashville. I was sad that he played it straight and wasn't funny

I always think of that scene too! It's very appropriate! Thanks for helping me figure out Youtube.

I'm in love. I love the n.e.o. concept, so sure-- call us whatever you want!

My son still quotes the kid in Parenthood who says that a man has to get a license to drive, to fish or to hunt, but any butt-reaming a**hole can be a father. Sad and true...

Fantastic Forrest said...

So funny! I love the series of pictures; he's such a cutie.

Parenthood is one of my all-time favorite movies. It should be required viewing for anyone who considers getting pregnant.

Drollgirl his cuteness saves his life on a daily basis. G-d forbid I try to have harvest holiday type decorations....he sat on top of my dining room table gnawing off the bumps on the decorative gourds, dude really?

Lisa-Anne it totally fit!

F.F. thank you for the cuteness comment! I agree on that movie, it's entertaining and has educational value. Even when Steve Martin thinks the vibrator is a flashlight and turns it on just as the lights go back on at Thanksgiving.........great scene!
