Whipped Cream Paints!

Easy way to pass a cold winter (or spring if you're in Illinois) day with the kids! Mix one or two drops of food coloring in a cup with a few squirts of whipped cream. Strip the kids, put them in the tub and hand them some paintbrushes. Yummy, sticky and creative fun! And cleanup? Is a cinch since they're already in the tub!

Happy Rainbow Post Of Fluffy Bunnies

Alright. Okay. I'm going to stop writing about depression shit and start writing about happy, fluffy bunnies and rainbows today.

Not really, but I will share some insights on my lovely little babies.

Sadie: She is officially the big 5 and is so smart. She's been reading for about 6 months now and is getting better and better every day. We are going to register for kindergarten in a few weeks (WHAT?) and she is really excited to ride the big girl bus to school. I'm always proud of her for being awesome.

Landon: He is talking more and more as each day passes. His favorite words? Truck, truck and truck. But he's also starting to piece two and three words together and we've even been getting an "I wuv ooo" out of him once in a while. He is a giggly, happy, silly and spirited 1-year-old boy. And I love him with all my heart.

Exciting stuff, I know :)

Reflections in the window

It's not that I haven't had the time to write here more often, now that I think about it - I just don't have the energy to do it.

 For once, I'm up early and it's quiet and I'm alone. I was standing in the kitchen making my coffee and found myself looking at the reflection staring back at me in the window. I don't know her. I really don't know her at all.

This is all I can give right now. It's pathetic.
