Before I forget - quote of the day:

I could post these on facebook - but, I'm just not ready to be "that parent" yet.  Also, I have so many friends on facebook that are not parents AND some who are trying to have children and cannot.  So, right now.. this is where I'll post.

Today's quote:

"Mommy, I'm a big girl.. like Daddy".

Yes... Izz... yes you are!

The key to getting your Husband out of the house on a weekend (willingly)!

Find an activity he loves that your toddler will also love.

Usually we go to the park or do something that I think Izz will like -- but, this past Sunday we went to the Science Museum, and guess what - her Dad also had fun!

I bought tickets to the interactive galleries - and when Daniel found out there were Imax movies too he got very upset with me.  The only thing that calmed him down was when I explained that if we liked the galleries too - we could get a membership and we could COME BACK and see the Imax movies.  

So, we've found a spot.  We got our membership packet yesterday in the mail - and I think when I'm in rehearsal tomorrow, Daniel is going to take Izz to the museum and expose her to her first Imax movie.   Usually, on a Sunday morning, I find them both at home - doing something fun - but, something at home.  

I've found the trick! 

Now to figure out the next activity these kids will like.

News from the Cold Front

I had my first fever-free day in 5 days today and I basically felt like a million bucks compared to the way I've felt the last week.

There's truly nothing like laying in bed, body shaking with fever and pain, thinking about how you really have to pee but don't have the strength to move to make you appreciate how lucky you are - just to be able to know that you won't always feel like this and you will wake up well to a beautiful family and happy life.

Today I made eggs for Molly, the first day on my feet in almost a week. It felt amazing.

She threw them on the floor - but still, amazing.

add another 20 minutes to our mornings...

Izz is mastering buttons. She already puts on her own pants, socks and shoes. Now she's working on zippers and is doing buttons on her own. Mommy can't help -- Mommy can't even get close while she's working on her task. At this rate we are going to have to get up at 5am in order to get out of the house by 8:45am!
