Ok, I feel a little better

If you read the extremely depressing post below, you will get a kick out of this one. Just minutes after making my 100th revision to the previous post for typos and clarifying a sentence here and there... I just Gave Emma a hug. I told her that I loved her, she smiled and said," I know, momma."

That makes me feel so good. My kids
know that I love them. I tell Anna that it doesn't matter, nothing she could ever do will make us stop loving her. Nothing. We might be mad as heck, but we are still going to love her. No. Matter. What.

A few more funny tidbits... Sunday night we went out to eat because John had gotten home from his weekend excursion. It was so cold that night, but we bundled the kids up and went anyway. Emma, as per usual, had her hat and mittens off with in minutes of pulling out of the driveway. When we got to Quizno's John chided Emma for being a goofball, didn't she know it was freezing outside?

"I know dada, I

Though I know he wanted to strangle her because the moment he opened her door to get her out of the car seat, her gloves were blown out of the car and under... he couldn't help but laugh. I think missing her all weekend helped save her bacon too. :O)

Last night, I was gong over every one's names. I think they are never too young to learn, in case (God forbid) they ever get lost. It went like this:

What's your name?


Very good! What's daddy's name?


Very good, John! What's my name?


Yes, but what is my real name?


Very Good, Mary! What is Nana's name?

*She ponders, her eyes rolling up to her upper eye lids, ever so cutely.*


Almost, honey... Jill.

Oh! Jill! Right. ;O) What a cutie pah-tootie.

PS- I forgot to mention that I made a desktop wallpaper for Local Girl, to hopefully motivate people to refer other bloggers to the Valentine's Day Goody Swap. The person with the most referrals gets a goody from her, but will also get this nifty wallpaper I made yesterday. :O) Here is a preview:

I hadn't even thought about the getting lost/name knowing thing. Thanks for the tip.

Thank you for being so you. After your totally honest, soul twisting post, you post something like this. Which is why I love it all. Just like life really is.

Your chilhood pics and your daughter's pics look so much alike

You may want to alert Nana in case someone calls her home looking for "Bill". LOL!
