Erik: "The funniest thing"

Erik brought home a writing/art assignment from school. Here is a glimpse into the mind of a 7 year old boy. The art work and words are his (the spelling corrections are mine).

"The funniest thing in the world is a fish that breathes fire, and walks on land, and wears underwear."

So is the fish wearing boxers or briefs? I can't really tell.

Claire: "Do I look stylish?"

Claire asked us "do I look stylish?"

If I were to ask her what should be considered when assembling an outfit she would probably say: the more colors, patterns, and layers the better! I'm thinking it is maybe a pre-K version of the clothing brand, Anthropologie. This girl has a style all her own. And me in my jeans and t-shirt, well it is not like I have a lot of pointers to give. Go Claire!

I dread grocery shopping with my 3 little helpers and avoid it if I can. Being able to shop in peace and at my own pace is a mini luxury. Last night after the kids were in bed I needed to pick up a couple of items at the grocery store. Soon the trip turned into a full fledged grocery run. As I was making my way over to the produce section I heard my name being called out. At first I couldn't see anyone. Weird. Then as I heard my name again I realized it wasn't someone, but something that was calling out to me.

It was the container of mini chocolate donuts. No lie.

That smooth seductive voice sweet talked its way into the grocery cart. Back at home I loaded up my plate with these chocolate-y delights and poured a big glass of ice cold milk. I passed right by the 1% and went straight for the chubby whole milk.

What a great late night snack, it really hit the spot. Not the most healthy combo but it is not like it's going to kill me ;-)

(A little als humor for ya' ...hahaha)

Learned Behavior?

Not a lot to say here other than Megan enjoys looking at pictures in shark books. She will also make chomping sounds while chasing us around the house with this shark puppet. My little girl likes sharks and I think it is totally adorable.
