Owen's Homework

Don't let it break your heart. He just doesn't want to have a best friend as he is picky. Like his gifts, he only wants "quality" friends. He also doesn't like hurting anyone's feeling as you can see from his answer for #4.

Strong-man Dan. Dan the Man.
That Dan the Man, that Dan the Man. I do so like that Dan the Man.
Do you like him at the house?
Do you let him catch a mouse?
Is he the brother of the bopster?
With the fingers of a lobster?
We do. We do. We do like Dan the Man.
We like him as a Dad, as a Brother,
as a Husband, and as a Mother.(huh?)
We think he's funny, and he's nice,
Plays with kids, buys a slice.
We like him when he's laughing,
We like him when he's sad,
We like it when he drinks a.m. coffee,
and avoid him when he's mad.
And so, we like Dan the Man.
For all the fun he brings,
And surely it is evident,
He makes his girls' hearts sing.

All I can say is.......

Finn & his flames belt are way too cool for 2006.

Another list

I posted a list I had written a couple of years ago on the benefits of staying home with my kids. And now I shall post the benefits of working:

1) The kids are with someone else.
2) My children are spending time at another house.
3) My kids aren't with me.

* I say this coming for a very healthy place, just wishing for some space.

Colouring boys and new chairs

Before (I actually kind of like the red velvet minus the dust & cat hair)
After, new foam & material. I had to use something with a pattern to hide all the food stains to come.

Thank-you Terri, Scott, Matt, Kevin & Hannah!

Finn loves his new playmobile because
1) he loves anything with little men, and
2) the abundance of swords, cannonballs, axes and overall weaponry.
He carried them in a little tin lunch box. So cute.

Newest reno

I went to the Habitat Restore and picked up this wood (not hollow mdf) door for $70 w/ the doorknob already included. Just needed to pick up some hinges. Up and actually completed in one day. Now if I could just finish all the other partial jobs in the house.
~ notice the beer cases on the floor. I don't know why I have an extra 10 lbs on my gut ~

Chocolate anyone? (not for the faint of heart)

That would be regurgitated Hershey Chocolate Factory chocolate chips. It ended up being a $250 bag of chocolate. The vet wanted $800, but we took our chances. Molly's fine now....I'm still recovering.
Are you gagging right now?

Finn is Four

Does he look like he just had a comfortable birth? 11 lbs, 6.3 ounces. This pregnancy I deserved to complain.
