I couldn't help but laugh!!

This afternoon I was lying on the bed (same thing I've been doing for the last week because of a bulging disc in my back) and Ashlyn was in the floor in front of my bed. She had been watching Little Bear on Noggin but she evidently got tired of that and started talking to herself. She carried on quite a conversation about all kinds of stuff and then I heard her say, "Darn it, Dang it", then she paused before saying, "I love those words....they're my favorite....but I don't think I'm supposed to say them!" : ) After I caught my breath as I was trying not to laugh outloud I let her know that NO she isn't supposed to say those words. They just don't sound very nice!

Happy Birthday, Ashlyn!!

Wow!! 6 years old. It's hard to believe that Ashlyn is already past the half-way mark to being 10. Time sure does fly.

We love you Ashypoo and hope your day is wonderful!!

April Fools!!

Everything today has been a joke. It didn't matter what it was, it was a joke. Some were funny, some weren't funny, and some were just plain hard to understand. Ashlyn had no idea at 10:13 this morning when she rolled out of bed what April Fools even meant. I made the mistake of telling her that April Fools Day is a day when people like to play jokes on people or tell people things that aren't true and then say "April Fools!". Well, she decided she liked that a lot and used the phrase after EVERYTHING she said.

Ashlyn: "Mommy, I'm drawing!"

Mommy: "You are?"

Ashlyn: "April Fools!"

Ashlyn: "Mommy, I'm not hungry!"

Mommy: "You aren't?"

Ashlyn: "April Fools!"

Ashlyn: "Mommy, I'm ready to go!"

Mommy: "OK, let's go!"

Ashlyn: "April Fools!"

Each time she would say it she would hold her head back and just die laughing. I couldn't help but laugh at her everytime because she was so proud of herself for making another April Fools joke!

My mom called me this afternoon to tell me three things. 1. She hasn't been feeling great and she received a HUGE flower arrangement from some friends back in Virginia. 2. Some nice person called today and wanted to bring her a meal because they know she hasn't been able to be up cooking. AND 3. Hillary Clinton dropped out of the Presidential race! WOW! You are kidding me. I think my jaw dropped to my feet. I said, "Why? Why would she do that?" (Not that I minded!). My mom responded, "Because it's April Fools!"

What a day! I feel like I was tricked every time I turned around. To make myself feel better I think I'll go tie my kids up and put muzzles on them so they can't say April Fools again!!

By the way.....APRIL FOOLS!! : )
