assorted happenings

Well, I just ordered a manual baby food grinder off line. I haven't decided if it is a good decision(grind my own baby food, never have to buy baby food again) or a bad decision(I actually have to grind the baby food, I have to clean the thing), but it is a done decision so I guess I will get back to you on that.

I was fiddling with the mac yesterday and that thing can be aggravating. I ended up muttering under my breath, "STUPID, stupid computer...." then I heard a little voice behind me, "tu-pid, tu-pid, tu-pid, tu-pid...." trying out a new word and practicing to get it just perfect. Great...'and the mother of the year award goes to'....some one else!

Gavin is learning that being a big brother is not just hugs, kisses, and adoring gazes. We started ordering the "Friend" magazine for him, and he loves his new "book." He spends a lot of time flipping through the pages and staring at the pictures.














Unfortunately, he also leaves it on the floor when he is finished, and there is nothing the twins like better than a magazine to chew on. A new authoritarian side of Gavin has come out as he marches to his siblings and says gruffly, "No, NO Jane, no eat book!" (and this from the kid who used to bite huge chunks out of his board books)














Kenneth is on spring break this week. So this morning I got to have a "girls morning out." What did I do? What I have been trying to do for a month...I had the oil changed in the van, and then ran other various and sundry errands. It felt sooo good! You know you are getting old when going grocery shopping, or having your oil changed(without any of the kids) is a major emotional outlet!
