Spring Break

This isn't the post I had planned to write tonight. Goldie's launching into spring with a stomach virus. So while I'm disinfecting my house, you really should go read this.  And lets hope I can keep my littlest girl hydrated and at home.

The Brady Bunch

Goldie is all about the Brady Bunch. It started when I discovered that my girls had never met Mike and Carol, I immediately added Season 1 to our Netflix account. How could I know what a monster I was creating? Goldie, who would never watch anything other than Signing Time, sat for 1 1/2 hours watching the blended family bliss. The only word out of her mouth the entire time was "Alice". Everytime the credits roll she yells "Alice" and hits her head (ASL for "lettuce").  She began requesting "Alice" so much that I went out and bought her Season 1 and 2 for her birthday just so Netflix could have their DVD back. Finally, something we can all watch together.

Is it painfully obvious that we don't have cable or a dish?

And if you think Alice = lettuce is cute.
Bicycle = popsicle is almost as amusing.

Her sisters think the best part is when she starts dropping the "L" in Alice. Then you get A iss. So, its best to put her show on right away before she starts "swearing" at you!

Some problems are good to have

The statement "That's a good problem to have." gets thrown around a lot here. Mostly by me and sometimes my husband. Its our way of looking at the glass as half full overflowing. Here's an example.

I love blogging. I have a lot to write about lately. I loathe typing with one hand. The baby is always in the other. This is a good problem to have. I am so smitten with this little guy. Why didn't someone tell me boys were so charming?

Even when he's telling Grandma to back off.



Even my girls are starting to get the meaning of what a good problem is.

Me: Everyone is talking me to at one time, so I can't understand any of you. You're talking and you're talking, Goldie is yelling at me and Hank is crying to be held.

8yo: That's because we all love you!

Me: Oh, yeah, good problem to have, huh.

Kids: ~~~~laughter~~~~
