Me: Joe, please find something to do that's quiet.

Joe: I don't do anything quiet.

My Girl

She's so much fun right now. I love to watch her play. She has such a big imagination. Yesterday she had two shoe boxes...took them apart and drew her "dream" on one of them and Joe's "dream" on the other. Her dream included Cinderella, a short princess, and Murphy who had been turned into a horse. Joe's dream included Aliens. The whole time she was drawing she was singing to herself and telling the stories of the dreams. She plays with her dolls, stuffed animals and little ponies in much the same way...singing and talking away. She reminds me so much of a girl version of Josh. She loves her dress ups and LOVES to draw and color. She is in love with me right's "I want mommy to do it". I need to eat this up now because one day she will be a teenager and she will not "want mommy to do it" anymore. Man, how precious she is and how thankful I am for her.

What I did yesterday

I had a day off....I stayed in my pj's all the day long and watched Season 5 of The Office. I didn't clean or do laundry or any of those yucky things. It was marvelous!
Molly and Murphy also enjoyed my day off.
What was Hannah up to? Oh...just playing. It was a good time had by all!

This is Megan

And these are Megan's feet

These are the shoes Megan usually wears.

When it's cold and snowy these are the shoes she wears.

Just imagine the joy her mother felt when she used her Christmas money to buy these! REAL's a MIRACLE!

She gave her mom a big hug.
The End

Conversations....while sleeping

Aaron came home last night and I was out for the count. He tried to have a conversation with me and it went something like this....

Aaron: I think we should try the star sticker system with Joe...when he wakes up dry (he still wets the bed almost every night) he'll get 2 stars and when he swallows his pill (he is now on Aderall just like his brother) he'll get 1 star.

Me: That's too confusing...I'll never be able to understand that.

At work we have a collection of silverware that does not match ours. I suppose employees bring their own silverware and then it somehow ends up in our collection in the kitchen. Well, a couple days ago I was wrapping silverware for patients and came across a beautiful spoon. It's by Oneida, so I looked it up on the internet and found that it's from a set called Tuscany...I think it's just lovely!
