While you were sleeping...

Dad did this to your toothbrush!

Dad, now would be a wise time to find a new undisclosed location for your toothbrush. Cause I guarantee....someone's gonna be late for the bus in the morning!

Deep Thoughts by Ava

Ava has had a real struggle with her asthma the last couple weeks--sounds horribly sick when her steroids wear off and coughs incessantly. She calls me in her room 15 mins. after I put her in bed and gave her meds.

"Mom I can't stop coughing and I hate it. I feel like I'm having a heart attack."

Mom: chuckling--"Ava how would you even know what a heart attack feels like? You don't even know what a heart attack is."

Ava: "Yes I do...I've had one before--and I hate heart attacks!"

Deep Andrew

Andrew's assignment from scouts: Type a letter to someone. We forgot until 5 minutes before we had to leave. This was his letter. When I read it and looked at him funny, he said, "I'm being creative!"

Dear Billy,
    Thank you for being my best friend.
Even though you are an imaginary warthog,
I think you could be anyone’s friend.

Goodbye forever.
Sincerely your friend,
Andrew Peacock

p.s. Billy is dead.

Deep Thoughts...

When you walk into a public bathroom, and with much trepidation begin to push open the stall door....there should be some suspenseful horror movie music playing in the background....And push the stall door open......Oh come on! Who does that to a toilet??!! I mean really...HOW did you even do that to a toilet??!!

Growing up at the ball park...

I hope when they grow they will have fond memories of their childhood. Some seem to suggest I should feel guilty about "dragging" them around to the older kids activities. After all, their first outing at two days old was to...the ball field. But I say they are lucky. They spend hours at the park with their family, playing in the dirt and grass, and occasionally... they get to catch a good game.
