Favorite Picture: One of my kids was given a gift card for live caterpillars a little while ago. We’ve done them a few times before, and hearing what they come up with for names is probably my favorite part of the whole process. This year we’ve got Pearl, Luca, Milly the Caterpilly, Reba McEntire, and Jake from State Farm. I’ll give a cookie to anyone who can guess which kid named which caterpillar.
Favorite Quote: Oh heaven help us. I have always tried to use the proper anatomical terms for things with my children. I know there’s debate about that, but cutesy words don’t serve any purpose in my mind. Thanks to that attempt, and Violet apparently not hearing me correctly, she had the following conversation with the babysitter while getting her hair brushed the other day.
Violet: Did you know that boys have peanuts?
Violet: (impatiently) Well, did you already know that or is it a surprise?!
Favorite Donut: I don’t usually love donuts. I do eat more donuts then I should, but they aren’t actually my favorite thing. They might be my kids favorite, but I tend to be more of an ice cream gal. Anyway, Mariyah had a very long and drawn out doctors appointment this week, so we stopped for a special treat on the walk to school afterwards. Oh. My. Word. The Chocolate Pretzel donut is literally a dream come true. Not a day has gone by since Tuesday, not one single day, where I haven’t thought about this donut. Dreamed about this donut. Imagined myself taking just one more bite of this donut. Someone’s going to have to hold me this weekend. We have a lot of soccer games and I may need help making it all over town without giving in to my desire to stop at Dunkin’s and clean them out of their Chocolate Pretzels.
