What about Medium L?

Ginny: "Mom, how do you make a medium L?"

Me: "Huh?"

Ginny: "A medium L. Mr. Campbell taught us the big L and little L. How do you make the medium L?"

Well, isn't that such a great question?! I can't believe none of my other kids ever asked that!

Special Friend

"So, Ginny, how is school going? Have you made any friends?"

"Well, I do have one special friend at my school who always lights up my day...Corabella."

Too cute!

So, last April, Alli gave Chardy a book of customized coupons for her birthday. Things like "I will...let you use me as a test subject for one of your cooking experiments...because I love you" and "I will...let you use the computer when I'm on it unless I'm doing school work...because I love you." So sweet.

Fast forward to this weekend. I go up to Chardy's room and she has accumulated about a month's worth of dirty laundry. Of couse, I tell her to do it...immediately. A few hours later, I hear the two sisters arguing over something fierce. I go upstairs to see what's going on and find Chardy with this totally wicked look on her face waving the coupon below...

The Joe Biden Hat

I happened to see Joe Biden being interviewed on TV today and it reminded me of something I always meant to blog about but never did.

So, a few years ago, I crocheted this hat for my daughter, Alli.

She wore this hat all the time. One day, she was at some event that then-Senator Biden was at. Of course, being a senator, he was surrounded by all sorts of people who wanted to shake his hand and chat with him, etc., etc.

But, here's where it gets neat: Joe Biden caught sight of Alli's hat from across the room, left the crowd of people, and walked over to speak to her. She came home that night all excited because "Joe Biden liked my hat and said his granddaughter would really love it!"

To this day, I think, no matter your politics, it was pretty cool of the guy to make a little kid feel special in a room full of adult bigwigs... Sadly, the hat itself is now long gone...lost at school a few months later...sigh.

First Day

Summer went by so usual. It's back to school, and this time (for one year only, folks) all the kids are at the same school! So, without further ado, here are the obligatory first day of school pictures:

And, yes, they were *sooo* embarrassed that I took a picture of them in the school hallway! But, c'mon, it is Ginny's first day of preschool. One day, they will understand...
