1. Dear Lettuce,
Why must you bolt? I love you so dearly. You can't beat a quick dash to the garden for a fresh, organic, almost-free side dish to dinner. That goes with any meal. Lettuce, you could take a note from kale, who seems committed to hanging around a bit longer.
2. Maternity clothes spoiled me. Ever since my pregnancy, I can't stand to wear restraining clothes like jeans, which I used to live in prior to pregnancy. Now, even years later, I'm all yoga pants, yoga pants, and more black yoga pants!
3. Do you all follow Chatty Crone? Well the other day I was completely overwhelmed. Paul was out of town for a week, and on the home front I was dealing with some scary asthma (Cort) and a stomach bug (Reid). I glanced outside in the pouring rain, and there was a package sitting by the horse arena. I walked down and discovered a box from Sandie. She'd had a yard sale recently for her grandson, and was kind enough to send us a huge box of his toys. What a welcome distraction! From the boys and I, thank you!!!
4. My hair is naturally curly and I straighten it with a blow dryer everyday. It isn't cute curly. It's bad 80s perm that has partially fallen out curly. And don't get me started on the frizz this time of year. Virginia humidity in the summer is not kind.
5. The other day we were at the library and a little girl asked Cort and Reid why they were wearing the same shirts. They looked at each other and looked down at their shirts and then got these confused looks on their faces. I don't always dress them the same, but I guess when I do they don't really notice, or think about that it might be because they are twins.
