75% off flowers at the grocery store the day after Valentine's Day = Hello Daisy!
Another great thing about the day after Valentine's Day is that it marks the day that I first held a son in my arms ten years ago. Happy Birthday RW! I never would have imagined that you would grow up to be so witty, funny, cuddly and fast. I also would never have imagined a child requesting an apple pie instead of a cake for birthdays but I am happy to oblige! Dad and I love you the world!
KC has discovered the deliciousness of a "'tella sandwich" aka Nutella sandwich. One slice of bread folded over a swipe of chocolate-hazelnut spread which he only eats from the middle out to the crust (thus the mile wide chocolate evidence on his face). Doesn't it make you happy to see your little ones munching on something they love?
Lately I feel like I am living in a scene from the movie The Birds. At various times of the day the sounds of hundreds of squawking blackbirds penetrate even closed windows so loudly that I am drawn to look outside to see what is going on. Either the entire flock of birds has perched high above in the tippy tops of our trees or they have descended en masse onto the lawn, pecking at the ground for their latest meal. I tried to sneak up to snap a photo and scared them into flight. As long as they stay in the trees and out of my house we'll get along just fine.
