Funny Things Kids Say

At bedtime, I get my kids going with pajamas and such by telling them that the sun has gone to bed and so they need to go to bed, too.

Well, the other day, it was a little later than usual, and Youngest looked outside, then looked at the clock, then ran up to me, clearly very concerned. He said "Mommy! The sun is already asleep! Did he forget to brush his teeth?"

I bit back a laugh, then told him that I was sure the sun remembered to brush his teeth, and that Youngest had better get going on his own teeth. He said okay, then ran up the stairs.

Two Feet Under...

So, I know it's been a long time since I've posted anything. I've been busy with writing and revising, and planning my second blogiversary on my writing blog.

But things are finally slowing down, so I should be posting more regularly now.

Chicago was just hit with lots of snow. Like, a couple of feet or so. The boys are thrilled, and couldn't get their snowpants on fast enough so they could go out and play. By the time they got everything on, they looked a bit like Randy from the movie A Christmas Story.

Looks like the snow is here to stay for a while, which is good. Because when it starts to melt, I will have to soothe two broken hearts.
