Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters
Its Monday. Again. I much prefer the weekend and this particular one seemed much too short. None the less this is the day that the Lord has made so I will rejoice in it! Happy Monday to you!

1. The past few days Zahra has been exceptionally vocal about things. Add to that.....she's a fashionista. Its great, grand, and wonderful but sometimes this also includes a bit of sass. The rest of the time its just plain cute. Here's a couple examples.

Me: Zahra, its time to go clean your room please. Zahra: Mom, I'm dreaming. Me: That's nice, go dream and clean.

Zahra: Hey Liv lets do "cheeto" (raising her cup of ice cream high) Olivia: Cheeto? Zahra: Yeah "cheeto" (clinking Livs cup proudly) Olivia: Oh.....cheers!

2. David and I have been running in 14 different directions and none of those directions seem to intersect. I hate that. Date nights haven't happened in weeks and I really don't like that. Taking notes that this must change. Soon.

3. Silas is quite a little gymnast......he'll show his antics to anyone that will watch. He's pretty talented if I do say so myself.

4. Pretty sure I've mentioned the fact that my oldest child is a freshman in high school. I repeat this only to remind myself of the fact that time FLIES. Anywho - homecoming is coming up and I'm reminded yet again that my daughter is growing up. Way. Too. Fast.

5. This past weekend we had the great privilege of having a view into the future. Nichol brought home our "fake grand child". She cried and ate. Often. Nichol was a wonderful "fake mommy" to her "fake child". This fake child gave that girl a run for her grade. I'm pretty sure she'll get an A for this project! She was fabulous and while I'm obviously not ready for grandmotherly duties it was a good experience for all of us. In Davids mind it just reaffirmed his stance of NO MORE BABIES!

6. My Grandparents came from Oregon for a visit. They were driving across the country and stopped in to see us too. It was so good to see them. They met Zahra for the first time and we were able to spend some quality time together. We loved having them here and showing them around our hood. Here's a few more pictures of our time together.

Thanks for commenting on the "yuck" post. I still am sick about it, but glad I am not alone in feeling this is wrong. that blog has a LOT of followers, not many of whom saw the amorality of what is going on.
