Date Night With Daddy

A few weeks back, David had suggested taking the girls for an overnight outing to one of the local hotels and spending some concentrated time with our daughters.
-He had some points saved up from travel and was able to book a night for free. The girls were ecstatic to pack an overnight bag and head off for dinner and swimming with their daddy - no mommies allowed.

After work, David picked up his two anxious daughters and headed off to dinner. Then he checked into their room and headed - of course - to the pool. I received text and picture updates through it all. And then after being away from the girls for about 2 hours, I headed over to the hotel to check out the fun. They were swimming, enjoying home baked cookies, and loving all over their daddy.

I consider myself one lucky lady to have such an amazing husband and father who is willing to invest his daughter's lives. I try hard not to take him or his commitment to our family for granted. I know our girls will remember this night for many years to come.

Who Says I'm Not A Fun Mom

When the weather outside is frightful.......

Yes frightful.....

The temperature is frigid, the snow flurries are everywhere, and the sweet children are going stir crazy. What is a mommy to do?

I'm not sure about you, but this mommy invested in some window crayons and said "Enjoy!"

Paloma's Plug

I looked over the lunch table today to find my sweet little 3 year old with her finger up her nose. This would be our conversation...

Me: Paloma, why is your finger up your nose?

Paloma: I got some macaroni in my nose.

Me: How did that happen sweetie. Did you stick a noodle up your nose?

Paloma: It went up my froat (throat) and into my nose.

Apparently nobody told her that her mother is a nurse and therefore has taken A & P. Really sister, the things you come up with.
