It’s the end of March

Just a few things about us:

– Bridget is getting ready to walk and saying a few words: mama, milk, banana, dada, bite, hi, bye-bye

– I found Daniel asleep, naked, on the bathroom rug at 1 a.m. last night. Maybe he went potty and was too tired to get back to bed?

– Josh is getting ready for camp this summer, as well as his usual doings.

– Megan is still my little nuturer for both of her younger siblings. She also has enthusiasm enough for all of us!

– Katelyn just can’t get enough time to read all the books and magazines she wants to in a day.

– Abbie, well, I’m enjoying the pretty flowers in our yard – tulips and dandylions, mostly.

I’ve learned a few things lately:

– Sleep is overrated. Coffee is not.

– Cat poop on my shoe stinks. But cats catch rats.

– (Accidentally) doubling the butter in the frosting makes it extra yummy.

– You can’t buy anything if you don’t go into the store.

I’ve seen a few things lately:

– Bridget is now rolling over on purpose.

– Megan’s enthusiasm just explodes out of her.

– Kate doesn’t always appreciate this.

I’ve heard a few things, too:

– Daniel can (and does) comment on or question every, single, minute detail. Again. And again.

– Katelyn loves first grade. She’s going to marry a boy in her grade. (Upon the questioning by her grandma – because I’m not touching that with a ten-foot pole – she said the first reason was because he was funny like her Daddy. Too sweet.)

– Daniel says he’ll marry me.

– Daniel only wants me to read him train books. Or school bus books. Or fire truck books.

– Bridget loves to coo, giggle and squeak. Her latest noise is … unique, I’m not sure how to describe it.

– Megan sings great songs – especially to her little sister.

We’ve even done some fun things:

– Play dough.

– Climbing mountains.

– Walking to school really is a nice way to start the day.

– Playing in puddles at the farmer’s market.

– Reading.

– Candyland. Even Daniel can play.

– Puzzles.

– Sewing – bags are my latest kick.


Ok. There. We’re all doing well. And have not fallen off the face of the earth.

Good morning to you, too.

The first thing Josh said to me this morning:

“Good morning.”

The second thing:

“Well, I guess you’re not completely barefoot.”

(I was in the kitchen, baking, wearing my apron, pajamas and fuzzy socks.)

Megan: I’m eating all the marshmellows!

Quizzical look from mama.

Megan: The ones in the air. (now condescending) They’re pretend.

A big question

A few minutes after I put the kids to bed, Megan came downstairs with a question.

“Mama, how do we spell my Moose?”

For a second I considered scolding her for getting out of bed, but decided against it – this time.

“It’s M-O-O-S-E. Please go back to bed. Good night.”

Good thing she asked, it probably would have kept her up all night.
