Water Boy

This little boy loves water! Yesterday, there were many squeals

of delight among the splashes, especially when I asked,

“What are you doing?”. The enthusiastic scream "WA, WA!!"

was the response, everytime.

Super Soaker Saturday

The kids have been begging for a water day
ever since the snow melted. So, with the
warm weather today we got out the water gear
and had a little wet fun.
Here we come summer!

Two days ago, I put up this countdown to baby ticker on my blog. I saw it on my sister’s page and thought it was cute (I want to look like that perfectly pony-tailed pregnant girl). For two days now, every time I click on my blog, there is a number unabashedly staring at me and it feels like it never changes. Only one little number change every 24 hours—Do you know how long 24 hours is?!? Today I found myself wondering how many times I will do all the repetitive daily tasks that leave me out of breath or just bone tired before a number will fall off. And then the inevitable happened – I multiplied that daily figure by 61. Now, that‘s the REAL ticker. I’m banishing all numbers from my mind and that wafer thin little girl with the perfect baby bump better watch out. I don’t think she’s going to last 61 days on MY page.

"Just For You Mommy"

This afternoon, Abbie came in from the backyard,
with a gleam in her eye and a sugar sweet voice.
"I have a suprise just for you mommy!
It's a bouquet! Aren't they lovely?"
She presented me with plentiful bouquet of strawberry blossoms.
I have to say...they really took my breath away.
After thanking her for her love and the flowers
I told her what she had picked and how strawberries grow.
She turned on her heel and skipped away saying,
"Oh well".
My sentiments exactly.
