Me: Should we make something yummy tonight after dinner?
Jackson: yes!
M: what should we make?
J: cake!
M: what kind of cake?
J: yummy.

A slow morning

Emma was asked to clean up the play area about five minutes prior to this exchange...

Mama: Emma keep going, there's still lots to clean up.

Emma: Ha you can't tell me to 'keep' going when I haven't started yet!

Maybe mamas not so brave...

Emma: Mom, if daddy is gone and a monster comes into our house then you can just hide and me and Jackson can handle it.

Afternoon snack

In reference to the size of the nutter butter I handed her...

Whoa! That's a beast!

At the BCS homecoming soccer game the crowd was chanting B-C-S... Once the student section faded out, we hear Emma shouting U-S-A...U-S-A!

Our little patriot!

Tadpole in training

Jackson was just hopping around like a frog chasing a fly shouting, "Ribbit!!"

I want to stay up and play all night. Oh, wait. Then I would be nocturnal. Hmm... Yeah, maybe I shouldn't because I would be too loud in my family's house during the night.

Watch out

I had just taken out a fly with our flyswatter.

Emma: That's what happens when you mess with mama!

Daddy: Jackson you can't wear that headband. You're a boy.

Jackson: No. Baby.


Jackson said no when I had asked him to do something.

Mama: careful, buddy. You don't say no to mama.

Jackson: aw, man!

Haircut for baby...

Working on my practice plan for volleyball...

Flowers from John in memory of Jordan Hope (2nd child, miscarried 13 weeks)...

John sentenced me to the couch with my feet up while he cooked dinner, turkey sandwiches and homeade Rally's fries...

I told them they could have a cookie if they ate their whole plate. They took it literally.
