Peer Parenting

Will: I need a marker.

Sophie: Will, will you die without a marker? Because that's what you are saying. You NEED food, but you WANT a marker to use.

-- Sometimes I think I just need to keep my mouth shut and let them take care of each other. --

Dear Whoever-Signed-Me-Up-For-These,

Very funny. Very, very funny. They don't stop sending them just because you don't respond. Just so you know.

Will got me "Dollar Tree" roses for Valentine's Day. These were purchased several days in advance (with Papa and Grandma) and he couldn't WAIT to give them to me, asking me multiple times each day leading up to 2/14 if he could PLEASE give me my gift. How precious is that?

(In typical Will fashion, he negotiated with - i.e. conned - Grandma to purchase the vase, so he only had to spend one of his allotted dollars instead of two!)

The Incident Report

Is it terrible that we laugh at the way our kids get hurt (once we know they are OK)?

Sophie on Pippi Longstocking:

"Pippi Longstocking is a girl movie AND a boy movie. She's a pirate, and that 's the boy part. And she's a girl, and that's the girl part."

Evan Update

Evan continues to be sweet, loving, good-natured, and plagued by ear infections! In spite of that last part, he is starting to sleep a little better.

As of now, we seem to have a neopolitan family with respect to hair color. We've got strawberry, chocolate and vanilla all covered.

Having a kindergartener is just one giant game of Mad Gab. Can you read these two pages? (Scroll down for answers.)

"My mama deserves three valentines because she is so nice."
"Electronics are dangerous. Do not touch things that say High Voltage."
