This Just Happened

Cubby and Charlie were in the living room watching the Disney version of Robin Hood. Jack was running around entertaining himself happily in the room with them. All quiet, and I was wasting time on the computer. (Friday, remember?)

And then Cubby runs in and says, "Mommy, why is Jack running around with no pants?"

Good question. Good thing Charlie had an answer: "I pulled them off because he kept trying to climb in my chair."

Right. Life with three little kids. You're looking at it.

It is currently 6:21 a.m. on April 5, and it is 9 degrees. Nine. Not a typo. Just 9.

Sorry, little hyacinths.

Be Brave, Little Hyacinths

Mama N. will have her little joke, with four inches of snow in April after a winter with very little in the way of actual winter weather. 

The hyacinths will wait patiently under their white blanket until spring re-emerges. It will. Eventually.
