Art Time

Had some art time at our house recently. Here’s how Robby “arts.”
Put the markers in the cup.

Remove the markers from the cup.

Throw the markers on the floor.

Scream until Mommy picks them up. And repeat. Sam was quite serious, however - look at that face.

And he made it clear there were to be no red pom-poms [...]

Wherein the Burger King picks me up by the collar and smacks me around a while

THE BURGER KING (as in, the King of Burgers): Pssssst.  Beth. Beee-eeeeththththth.

Excuse me, but weren’t we done here?

Want to know the first thing Sam said to me when he woke up this morning?
“I think we should get a new baby.  A girl baby. We should get a girl baby.”
And as if that wasn’t enough, just a few days ago Hubby came downstairs saying, “You know, I was just thinking about how fun [...]
