Nothing warms the body and soul after a long cold winter like the sight of crocuses and a sunny, 60 degree day!

The clean windows will help me feel like I got something accomplished today and lessen the "I shoulds" while I park myself in an Adirondack chair with a book!

Mom's Sidekick

MMan is coming into his own.  He's finding his vocabulary and voice and letting his thoughts be known.  His "ayup" answer still makes me giggle every time he uses it, which isn't good if I'm in the middle of a discussion about a poor behavior choice!  He's a hit-and-miss eater, but is steadily growing.  I'm hanging on to the snugly toddler days as long as I can and I love his grin.

Usually I keep my work to the hours that HandyMan is home or the kids are asleep.  Some days, that doesn't always play out.  MMan had woken up from a nap and I was trying to finish up a few things.  He made it clear that he wanted a movie on my phone and wanted to "listen".  So, I outfitted my little sidekick.  Then HandyMan came home and caught us and took the photo.

A Style, Still, All Her Own

GGirl's sense of style emerged early and has continued to evolve.  Her most recent exploration is in the area of prints, and such.  The shirt matched the jumper because they both had white, then everything else was accessories.

She was going through a bag of clothes passed to us and was very excited about the pink, sparkly, pretzel sweatshirt.  I was at a loss until she showed me what she was talking about.  May we all have more pretzels in our life.

Ice Cream and Play

It's February and it's cold.  So GGirl had great fun redeeming a voucher for ice cream she received for Valentine's day.  We alao tagged in an afternoon adventure to the Discovery Center.  No matter how maby times we go, the kids still find fun new things to play with.
