This really happened….

  So, I am meeting friends later tonight at Chili’s to talk and talk and talk.  Josh was craving wings, so he picked some up on his way home from work.  I pondered how I could get away with the least amount of work in the kitchen considering our plans thus far.  Here’s what I came up with: And do […]

Mack’s Two Year Appointment

Mack had his two year check up last week.  He checked out great except for some minor ear issues.  He remains a “big boy.”  My girls were “big girls,” too.  Josh and I aren’t surprised.  We aren’t small, petite people.  Here is Mack’s info from the visit:  Height, 36 3/8″ (90%), Weight, 34lbs,8oz (97%) and Head, 52 cm (97%).  I […]

I don’t work.

The other morning I was telling Molly we couldn’t see a friend of hers because the friend’s mom was at work.  She laughed and said to me, “Mommy’s don’t work!”  I told her how some Mommy’s do work (meaning outside of the home).  She said, “Mommy’s do not work.  They just stay home.”  I chose not to go into a liturgy about all the work a mom does, all the hours we put in, the mounds of laundry we conquer, the number of meals we serve, and how we never “clock-out.”  Then, this morning Josh was getting ready to leave.  We are all sad when he leaves each morning because we miss him so much.  I told Molly, “Daddy has to go to work.”  She said, “But you don’t have to go to work.”  I told her, “No, Mama’s work is here.”  She laughed at me again and said, “This isn’t your work.  This is your home.”  Oh dear….I held back again and just told her I was so glad I didn’t have to work, and that I was so glad to just stay at home and play with her. In actuality, Josh was going to play golf today.  He played yesterday, too.  He hasn’t played in at least 8 months; there just happened to be two tournaments that his boss signed them up for back to back.  Ruby was funny about it and said, “Daddy, why are you playing […]

Bit by a shark

    We were looking through beach pictures from last summer. Molly saw the pictures from when they took the pontoon boat out and saw a lot of jelly fish. She said, ” ‘Member when I got bit by a shark…or something.” I said, “Oh yeah. Wasn’t it a jelly fish though?” She said, “Yeah, something like that.” Shark. Jelly […]

Cute little handwriters

Oh, that Ruby and Katherine!  They are just so sweet together.  I remember seeing Katherine in the nursery department as she and her daddy waited in the hallway for the teacher to get there.  I noticed her because she was the only other little girl that didn’t have any hair.  It was a comforting fact as I dropped my bald-headed […]

True Love

PawPaw and Sweetie (my parents) came to visit us last Thursday  on their way to Alabama and then stopped back by on their way home from Alabama.  The kids always love seeing them.  This time the love between Mack and PawPaw grew even stronger.   This is where it gets border-line sick.  PawPaw caught a big bass while in Alabama, […]
