Our happy boy could hardly stop laughing long enough to blow his candles out. I'm not sure what he thought was so funny. :)
Last week we had our front yard torn up to have a french drain put in. After hurricane Sandy, Christian was concerned about the basement flooding if the power went out and we didn't have access to a generator for some reason. So now we won't have to worry about it anymore. It was a gigantic mess but the guy did a great job and cleaned it up very nicely so all we need to do is plant grass again.
Yesterday was my birthday. The kids woke up early and made breakfast for me and made me eat it on the couch (I have this dislike of eating breakfast in bed), while they excitedly showed me the card on which they had been working so hard for a week.
Inside was a really funny poem that they and Christian came up with.
Oh how our love for thee doth fly,
A love that can not die.
You slave away from morn to night,
You read us books, our future's bright.
Our meal's so healthy and organic,
We seldom fear or fret or panic.
While you toil in the kitchen so,
We lay around and play Skip-bo.
Until you tell us to get our chores done,
Somehow you find a way to make it fun.
We laugh all day as we go through life,
You are an amazing mom and wife!
Ok so there is just some slight hyperbole in the poem, but hey, it had to rhyme right? So no need to feel down on yourself if you don't laugh all day and cook healthy organic food all the time while making chores oh so fun. Poor deluded man.
That's all for now. I gotta run and find Claire before she starts eating the dog food again. At least it's organic, right?
