Lil's 1st dance recital was Sunday. And she was brilliant. 

Absolutely brilliant.

And she was beautiful.

Absolutely beautiful.

Daddy made a video of the whole thing. Please click here to view it in its wonderful, hillarious, entirety.

Started On The Dryer

Just in case you were wondering...
This is what Juicy Fruit Bubble Gum looks like after a normal warm wash cycle with an extra rinse.

Don't even get me started on the dryer.

What That Kid Looks Like

Try, if you will, to imagine what a 6 year old boy who just won a life-size Darth Vader cut-out as a reading prize from his school, might look like. How puffed up might his little chest be? How cool does he think he is? He had to hire a couple of buddies to help him carry the huge box out of school and he's the envy of every kid he passed. He's the only person in our family to ever win anything. Here's what that kid looks like.

Go Magenta Go

Our son is a reader. He loves to read. He reads all day. He reads all night. I'm so proud of him that he likes to read. I think he gets it from his Uncle Scott. But he's a speed reader. Since last Thursday, he's read 4 chapter books. You have to understand how happy this makes Daddy and I when we can barely get through the newspaper.

We have high hopes for him that this interest in reading will continue. It's no secret that Daddy and I aren't the sharpest crayons in the box. But maybe Big will be! Maybe he'll be the Super Sharp Magenta Crayon his whole life long!

Go Magenta Go!

That's A-O-K

I taught my kids a very valuable lesson today that I'm pretty sure they'll always remember. If you leave work early or skip school on your birthday or your Mama's birthday - that's A-O-K with her.

Isn't It Everyone's?

This conversation is taking place right now in my car:
Lil': Mama what is this song?
Me: It's Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppellin
Lil: Wed Zweppin? Oh I like this song! Turn it louder.
Me: Ok
Lil: Louder Mama
Me: Ok Lil'
Lil': This is my favorite song in the whole wide world!
Me: Isn't it everyone's?
