Perceptive Little Buggars

Recently I have been involved in some weight loss competitions to help me stay motivated to lose the weight that I gained with my pregnancy.  The first competition I did with Jake and since then he has been very supportive and interested in my journey.

My kids have also been paying close attention to the whole process -- CLOSER than I realized.

Oh SO funny -- Bet she doesn't realize she just lost the privilege of sharing mom's stash! :)

A Guinea Pig Lesson

It all started when we went downstairs to have breakfast and found that our cat had knocked over one of the plants in the night....

What!  This plant is poisonous keep it away from small animals!?

Not knowing what else to do we left to walk to school.  Both girls were a mess.  Tamsyn felt terrible and Tasha was worried her guinea pig was going to die any second because  her sister had fed him a toxic plant.  Feeling helpless and worried, I called Jake.  He calmly offered to call the vet and then called us back just before we arrived at the school.

Seriously - Let Them Eat Cake! A 4 Year Old's Perspective

For my sister and her cute and spunky little 4 year old, Justee Rose.

Totally embarrassed that her mom followed her and caught her asking the neighbors if she could move in she ran and hid her face in mommy's shoulder.

She didn't much want to talk about the subject anymore.... but did come to this conclusion ---

This really happened.  It blows my mind that she slept on it and still was determined to go out in search of a new family the next day.  All I can say is -- Four year olds are AWESOME!  You never know what they might do over a piece of cake.

Grandma Bunny

This year Grandma Bunny helped fill Easter eggs.
Her disposal of the packaging showed that she was a little out of practice --

Now this could have been a complete disaster ---

Grandma Bunny may be a little rusty when it comes to hiding the evidence -- but luckily she still has her wits about her.
