E said her stomach hurt & once again L lost her mind. She's curled up in the fetal position, sobbing and rocking back & forth.
Fbook suggestion on post re: sick child: "Honey is a fantastic homeopathic remedy for everything!" EVERYTHING, YOU GUYS.
Another suggestion was for Motrin, fluids, and a potato necklace. I want to know what a potato necklace is and also I DON'T want to know.
Epic was way better than I thought it would be, even though I had to listen to A joke, "I hear this is epic!" again & again.
I find it charming that C is square: 48 inches tall & 48 lbs.
I'm not sure when I went from Vacation: Time to sleep in! to Vacation: Time to get up and DO STUFF!
"Can I take a creepy picture?" she asked. http://twitpic.com/d2ouoj
Sharing a house with my siblings and their families reminds me that some people load the dishwasher TOTALLY WRONG.
Can I have a popsicle? Yes. Can I have a can of pop? Yes. Can we build a fire and make s'mores tonight? Yes. I love vacation.
E is reading her favorite Calvin and Hobbes to me.
I've been married 15 years today. We were CHILDREN. Who approved that marriage?! http://twitpic.com/d3am19
Our betta died while we were gone. I am sad, yes, but more bewildered. I can't FIND her. I dismantled the entire tank while investigating.
Is 6 days long enough for her to . . . disintegrate? Or would our 2 snails EAT HER in that time? I feel like I should at least find PARTS.
A's helpful comment: "Wherever she is, I don't think she's alive anymore."
Newest member of our family: Ruby Fire Flame! http://twitpic.com/d3w899
Everyone at work is mocking me because of my excitement over the royal baby. I have no allies here! HEATHENS ALL OF THEM.
I told the girls about the new prince. E: "I was eating blueberries THIRTY MINUTES before he was born!!!"
There aren't a lot of things better than C wrapping her skinny spaghetti arms around my neck.
E: "C, I have your pony in my prize box!" C, suspiciously: "Is your prize box your BUTT?"
C is in her undies, enthusiastically doing jumping jacks. Kids are weird.
Now E has stripped to her underwear and they're running laps.
L smacks E's butt. E: "Did you really just do that?" L giggles and nods. E: "IT'S ON, SISTER."
I got my annual review at my job today and it was SO GLOWING that I want to hug all my coworkers. Instead, I'll bake them cookies.
Explained manufactured homes to my kids and blew their minds. "You can MOVE a HOUSE?!"
13 lbs of blueberries! The picking was SO GOOD. http://twitpic.com/d4t0u6
I was dozing on the couch & felt a presence. Opened my eyes, C's face was RIGHTTHERE & she whispered, "Can I take off all my clothes?"
They are looking at pictures, giggling & reminiscing and oh God, do I hope they're doing this in 10, 30, 50 years. http://twitpic.com/d4tyte
The Cosby Show has held up really well despite the years. Bugs Bunny? Not so much.
L and I made 6 loaves of blueberry bread. Our family of 5 ate an entire loaf for dessert. YUM.
Sent A and E off to a Tigers game! She's so geeked. http://twitpic.com/d56awd
A & E are home and she's BUBBLY with all the fun they had. It's so sweet and A is such a good dad. She's so lucky to have him.
E: "If you ride a bike a lot, does your coccyx hurt?" Lol. Obviously her mom is a nurse.
We finished A Wrinkle In Time and are starting The Hobbit. Family reading time makes me so incredibly happy.
