45 Sticky Notes

Last week, I woke to this trail of arrows drawn on sticky notes. They trailed from my bedroom door, down the stairs, through the dining room and kitchen, and ended on the kitchen table. 

This was the final sticky. Not the love note I was hoping for.

He Can Only Steal From Green Rooms

Auntie Alex sent us this gift in the mail. 
I don't know what else to say about it. I don't know what its for but a good laugh. 
And, did Auntie Alex have it custom dyed to match the walls in our dining room like I dyed my 8th grade graduation pumps to match my peach lace dress?

Niamh + Computer + Clip Art + Printer - Spell Check =

I've been finding these printouts in the office regularly for a few weeks. It seems that Niamh has learned to use Word and Clip Art on the computer. She puts her foremost thoughts in print, finds some fitting art, then hooks the lap top to the printer and viola!

The small print reads: Sleep is my favorite time of day. You get your sleep.

The Small print: Family oh Family. Mommy and Daddy and Niamh and Finn. The End
love x8 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
Love can be anything
Love is your sole

Mommy you are so great. You are the love in my heart. You are the brain in my head when I am writing. Mommy I love you (sniffle)
Daddy you are aggressive but we know that your trying to keep us safe. You can always make it up. You always do good at work. Daddy I love you (chuckle)

Packed and Ready

On Thursday, the kids are going to Grandma Pat's to spend the night. 
This morning, Tuesday, at 9am, they were packed up and ready to go.
I wonder if Grandma would mind me dropping them off just a little early?
I told them to sit in the car and wait for me, I'd be there when its time to leave.

2.5 Years Of Spanish Immersion

People ask me all the time how Niamh is doing in her Spanish Immersion Program. I always say she is doing well, she seems to understand the subjects that are taught in Spanish, and she is getting a little more confident speaking Spanish.

I take it all back. She's clueless.

She came to me today and said, Hey, look. I found this book on my bookshelf. It has one page in English and then the other page is in, like, Dutch or something.


 ¡Ay, Caramba! That's all I have to say.
