Little Mouths

I've had some real gems today.

Maddie:  Mom, do you know how to sew a purple dress with purple sparkle shoes and a wand?  Because that's what I'd like to wear to school today.

Me: No, but I do know how to pull jeans and a tee shirt out of your dresser.

Maddie: That's not even close, Mom.

Me:  Buddy come over here and give me a cuddle.

Jude:  Do I have to?

Me:  Yes. (He comes over and sits on my lap)

Me:  Do you remember how we would sing songs and cuddle when you were a baby?

Jude: No.

Me:  Well, we did because you're my favorite little boy.  I love you buddy.

Jude:  Yeah.  And I love McDonald's.  Can we go there?

Falling Behind

Yes, yes...I know.  I REALLY do.  Sorry.  We have spent the last two weeks dealing with sick kids and crazy schedules.  Two weeks ago we took Madelyn, Jude and Ella to Disney on Ice - leaving Claire with Rob's very helpful sister and mother. By the time we returned Claire had thrown up a few times, and had a fever.  The next day the monster cough began.  RSV and Croup.  It's been a long couple of weeks, but I'll take the time to post something soon.  I pinky swear.  

But I did want to send a quick shout out to all of the friends and family that have called and helped us these past two weeks.  We really appreciate you.  

Oh - and just to add some fluff of sorts, which pictures do you see first?  I always seem to notice the faces before anything else.  Wonder what that means.

I know Maddie gets on the computer, and I know that she plays with photobooth, but I had NO IDEA she was suffering from multiple personalities.   (Yes, I know it's no longer called that...I just didn't know if you did!)  

If you click on the video, it will make it bigger...and turn up that volume.  And please forgive the psychotic layout of this post.  Blogger is acting nutso.  

Well, there you have it....CUH-REEE-PY!
