Oh Garbage

The other day I asked Jack if he had finished his corndog. He said yes. His plate was clear, but just moments before I had seen half of a corndog still on his plate....

"Jack, what did you do with the rest of your corndog?"

"I frowed it a duh gahbage"

"Really?"... I hadn't seen him leave the table...

On the counter next to his chair, I found his little toy garbage can, (that goes with his toy garbage truck)...

...and guess what was inside...

When it rains, it pours

Do you remember that 80's movie "Splash" with Tom Hanks and that blonde girl Darryl something - the mermaid? Do you remember that guy when he falls down the stairs and says, "What a WEEK I'm having!!" I could hear that exact line playing in my head today as I was driving home from taking Emma to the ER to get staples in her head.

I know there are SO many people out there with harder lives than mine, but this week has been a doozy in my book.

After a bout with the stomach flu followed by a day in the hospital getting rehydrated, (all while Dan was out of town,) this week has been a long road of recovery, topped with a trip to the ER.

Welcome weekend. Glad to see you.

Happy Birthday Emma!

Emma had a great 6th birthday today; complete with a field trip to the zoo with her Kindergarten class, a water fight in the backyard and a "Pinkalicious" birthday cake topped with M&Ms (at her request).

She is such a fun-loving girl who is full... no wait... FULL of energy. She is extremely smart and is great at creating her own fun. Her imagination runs wild and she runs with it. She is a surprise every day and it is so great to be her mom.

Love you, Emma Joan! I'm so glad you're mine!
