In the car yesterday, driving past the small pond that we pass everyday,

K:  "Mom"
Me:  "Yes"
K:  "Remember, don't drive the car on the pond."
Me:  "Okay, I'll remember."

Honestly, where did that come from?  I think she's been listening to her father "dis" my driving skills.  Note to all:  I have a near perfect driving record, with only one speeding ticket, from when I was in my early 20's.

Now that's what I call determination.....

A certain middle child in our family received a sparkly, baby blue Cinderella scooter for Christmas and while she wasn't overly ecstatic about it, someone else was.  The only problem,  legs not long enough to reach the pedal.  That only slowed her down momentarily.

"I did it!"

I found the following quote which I think perfectly describes my littlest girl, "Though she be but little, she is fierce!"-by William Shakespeare

News from the Germcave

I'm not sure what has happened to turn our house into a germ harboring dwelling, but it's got to go.  The kids have been sick off and on for the past month.  Not all at one time-which would have been easier-but one right after the other.  We've managed to go thru a virus which was mostly a fever only for 3-5 days, the croup, pinkeye, a nasty headcold, and now we've started with diarrhea---uuggghhh!

Lysol and I have become quite good friends recently!  I just wish they made one that was safe to spray on the kids.  I could disinfect them coming and going into the house and maybe that would keep the germs at bay.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an early spring!  I need to throw all the windows open and air out my germcave!
