When we got out to the parking lot and were loading ourselves into our big white van, I spotted her again. She was perched on a bicycle, her bonnet atop her head, a backpack (loaded, I'm sure, with items she'd just bought) on her back, bags of groceries strapped onto a rack behind her seat, and other bags on a rack (or basket, I'm not sure) in the front. I don't know how old she was, but at any rate, I hope that when I'm her age, I'm in good enough shape to pull off such a feat! :)

I had borrowed that from our local library recently, and a couple of nights ago when the kids and I had a bunch of peas to shell, we put in that movie and sat down to watch it while we shelled all the peas. It was such an enjoyable evening! The work sped by as we laughed (and I cried!) as we watched the movie together. It's an oldie, but a goodie! :)

I could be wrong (I mean, there must be something wrong with my eyes, because surely the resemblance is clear) ;-), but I believe the figure on the left is Benjamin, the one in the middle is Shav, and the one on the right is the artist herself.It's not the first time Moriah has drawn a picture of me, but I think it's accurate to say it's the squarest time!! ;-)

And I smile. :)

A couple of weeks ago, the younger kids and I were all in the upstairs bathroom. I was probably giving Benjamin a bath while they were brushing their teeth or something like that.
The door of the closet in the bathroom was open, and the contents were visible to the kids, which is not unusual because it's not as if I try to hide things there; they've all looked in that closet hundreds of times, I'm sure. But on this particular evening, one certain box caught Tobin's attention.
"WOAH!" he exclaimed, "Where'd we get that box of HUGE band-aids?"
They were...ahem...pantiliners. :)
