Just for Macey

Well. We are still busy.
Here's some funny K-isms. She is the best bedtime staller there is. Last weekend, Roy and I had put the kids to bed and were enjoying a movie on the couch. K was upstairs fiddling around -- not going to sleep, but she was leaving us alone so we were ignoring her. When we came up to bed she had dragged her little rocking chair that Grandpa Pyatt made into the doorway of her room and was rocking her monkey to sleep.
Last night I looked in her door to see her "makin' a bed". This is her way of justifying pulling out every blanket and spreading them on the floor in her best 2 year old fashion. She then sleep on it. In the last week, she has probably spent three nights on the floor.
D is smart. I used to feel like I couldn't say this because then I'm just the braggy mom. But, really. He's smart. He's been studying about volcanoes lately. He is just loving Mount St. Helen's. (Sometime we really need to take him there.) He explained to us the difference between magma and lava.
He was telling Roy about Kangaroos a couple of nights ago. D was saying, (in reference to them jumping) "...and when they come to an obstacle -- do you know what an obstacle is?" Like he needs to explain his vocabulary to us.
He's also been reading The Magic School Bus books. Recently it is has been The Search for the Missing Bone. On the way home for the store yesterday he asked me why we have a grain of rice in our ears. I was confused until I realized that in the book it talks about the stirrup bone-which is the smallest bone in our bodies- being as small as a grain of rice.
A is the cutest, sweetest baby ever. I mentioned on FB that she is finally showing signs of teeth. Two. Bottom center. She doesn't crawl yet. I think she may never crawl. She rolls and stretches. She can get anywhere and anything she wants this way so crawling may take a while.

Last night one of my very favorite people flew into town for and extended weekend. She was my surrogate sister in high school. She is an OT now and came up for a special class she wanted to take on Friday and Saturday. Then she'll stay until Tuesday so we can play. Hooray for old friends! It reminds me of a saying, "Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver the other is gold." Ahhhh. Bask in my philosophical nature....
Potty training stinks. Literally.
Laundry NEVER ends.
Our gold fish named Robert finally died.
One toilet out of three is clean in my house.
I haven't been to the gym since Monday and my hopes of losing 15 lbs before my 10 year HS reunion are fading.
I love chocolate.

Thank you, Sheena!!! Was that so much to ask for, really. Keep it coming, keep it coming. If you run out of material, make it up. How am I going to know.
