Quotes of the Day

Damon, when I wouldn't let him have Cheerios before dinner: "You're the worst mommy I ever had, and I don't even want to live with you!"

Claire to me, after discovering money in her piggy bank: "I have money to buy candy, and you can have some money, too!" She has a generous heart and I strike her as destitute, maybe?

Anne, randomly throughout the day: "E-I-E-I-E-I-O!"

Damon the Problem Solver

Damon noticed our silverware holder couldn't hold all the forks and spoons. He saves empty toilet paper rolls for just such a situation. He's a regular MacGyver.


Julie, Scott, and Bruiser came over for a fabulous Thanksgiving. This is a picture of Scott holding Bruiser holding a piece of our Thanksgiving pork loin in his mouth.

Julie and I had two desserts. The first was chocolate pie (which everyone had), and the second was watching Twilight the movie. It was extremely entertaining. Edward was perfect. It was also surprisingly funny, often unintentionally so. Too bad Bella lacked a personality. Someone should have told her she's not supposed to be catatonic until the next movie.

Fun with Dick and Jane

I didn't have homework until I was in 3rd grade, so I was really annoyed when I found out I had to help Damon with at least 30 minutes of homework everyday after KINDERGARTEN (Expectations: destroyers of peace). But when he's sounding out 'sheet' and he says "Shshiiiit. Shit?" I feel better about things.
