Growing Different

Co-op at our house looks a little different these days: swords, cars, and "Voltron" have replaced dress up's and stuffed animals. Gone are the days of girly-er movies and feminine influence.

Two of the families had grown out of the co-op need (each family had three girls). We've replaced those girls with one toddler boy who has another brother or sister on the way. Gender count: boys 6, girls 1 (with a hopeful 2 coming soon).

Co-op is certainly different for Leah. She struggles not having anyone her age our even another girl around. Although we've been giving her good babysitting practice with the boys 2 and under.

Live, Laugh, Love

Big brother was feeling sad because of an error in nail clipping (I blame my mom). Little bro. was trying to help him feel better. This was one of about ten kisses on Parker's head.

April Winter

Weird things that have happened today:

-My five year old saying, "I love winter!"
-Perusing swimwear while wearing gloves  and boots.
-Shoveling four inches (and counting) of snow...
-... without gloves
- Pedestrians wearing t-shirts with hair caked in snow.- Shoveling chalk colored snow, because that's what we were doing two days ago, sidewalk chalk drawings. 

- Hot chocolate. 

- Not line drying my towels. Apparently we live in Arondale and Elsa has a cold. [Reference: movie Frozen and short Frozen Fever]

Heard in our Home

During Austin's nap today we experienced some intense wind outside if the house- up to 50 mph in places.

Parker was quite concerned and asked,  "Mom, are the windows in Austin's and my room closed?"


"Oh, good. I was concerned that twigs and small leaves would fly in and get into Austin's mouth when he yawned. I would never want anything so bad to happen to Austin."

A bit of Halloween

My (last) baby giraffe.
