|We hung our lights and are the MEANEST PARENTS EVER, fyi. (We won't let them climb out on the roof. MEAN!)|
|This guy is walking everywhere now.|
|Tree cutting (it was cold and WINDY, look at those rosy cheeks).|
Here's something else work-related: I have a published magazine article! I think the article looks way cooler in the actual magazine, with it's glossy pages and all. I feel like a kid who's proud of my book report. Mostly because I've poured six years of work into the program in the article, so it's near and dear to my heart. Check it out.
Like lots of you, we've been gorging ourselves on this freakishly warm December weather. It's a bit disconcerting, dressing your daughter in a sundress on 12/2. There's a part of me that feels uneasy about enjoying it so much-- like you KNOW this can't be right but it feels so good.
|We got Willa a little wooden kitchen for her birthday. It's a huge hit with all the kids.|
Willa Mae has ramped up her usual intense self to pioneer territory this week. It's been hellacious. I am frequently very thankful that she was not our first child because I know this will pass, sort of, and that there's nothing too abnormally twisted about her little mind. But still. I survived HOURS of tantrums this morning and now I understand how war can change a person.
Today she screamed at me that she was going to "put ALL the mommies in jail so there are ONLY daddies." Sounds kinda all right doesn't it?
A few weeks ago the boys were off school so I took the day off with them. We went out to a nearby Native American historical site that has an awesome child-friendly museum and burial mounds to climb. Fun Fact: it was the largest known North American civilization in history until the year 1800 when Philadelphia surpassed 30,000 in population. PRIDDY COOL HUH.
