He Is Risen!

Alleluia! Christ our Savior is risen!

My missing towel this morning was an annoyance. Miss M's dress, the one I've been waiting all winter to put her in, was too short. I worked until after midnight and was awakened by 6:30am to hear, "Mommy! Mommy!" from Miss M and WB. We have a busy day ahead...

And you know what? I am so very happy. I have towels to complain about. Miss M has another cute dress. I might just steal a nap later on and my family is together and whole. And the best news yet? Jesus Christ died and rose again. He really is our precious Savior.

Triple the Fun

Why does making a triple batch of waffles equal quadruple cooking time? And why does it mean that I will have to wait until the littles go to bed before I will get to eat dinner?

Vacation 2008

Here's what our vacation itinerary for 2008 look like:

February: oral surgery for Our Fearless Leader
March: fillings for Mominator
March: fillings for the Ham

I think we might have enough left in the bank to pay for the boat registration - we'll be spending the rest of our vacation time on the local lake fishing for dinner.

Common Sense

Last week the 7yo was at work with Our Fearless Leader. A friend in the office suggested the 7yo might want to head into the lunch room because there was cake - the friend also wisely added that the boy should check with his father to be sure he was allowed such a thing (the friend is cautious about sugar with her own offspring). Our 7yo displayed his powers of common sense with this response:

I can eat anything... except for soap.

No one was sure why he said it... and he did dutifully check with Our Fearless Leader about the cake. When we asked about his reasoning for the soap part of the answer, he just looked at us as if we had suddenly sprouted a third eye and said:

No one can eat soap. It isn't food.

Yes. Yes, of course. Common sense. And it was at this point, I think, that he began to get the impression that he knows more than his parents.
