Living with a 5 year old

Elle helped me wash woodwork one day. Our bathroom is all wood and I didn't notice Elle couldn't quite reach the back of the trim. :)
Good memories. By the way, I didn't wipe the other half yet. It makes me smile every time I see it!

We were talking one day and she said, "Mom, your teeth look just like that lady on Meals on Wheels!" After much discussion about which lady it was, I mistakenly asked her why they looked like hers. She replied, "They are golden!"

She also was playing a trivia game with me. Here are some of the funny responses I got.

1) This little piggy went to market...This little piggy...

(Elle) ...went to park it!!

2)Your brother needs a haircut. Who should he see? A) sushi chef B) florist C) barber D) banker

(Elle) Ari!! (our friend that cuts our hair)

3)Baby cows are called...

(Elle) Cabs!

All 5 y/o would think this ? was fun!

What would you do if you had 2 donuts and your little sister had none? A) eat them where she can't see you. B) Share one with her. C) Say, "Too bad, you don't have any donuts." D) Lick the frosting off one and then give it to her.

She picked C. :)

Sad but true

As I looked back at my last blog, it said February. How sad! Another blogger said she was taking a fast from the internet for 40 days. I wish that I could say that was my excuse but I don't have one nearly that spiritual. I am just a slacker. Yet that gives you a glimpse at how much time I have had to sit at my computer and type. Especially with glorious Spring in the air. Can't you just hear the Hallelujah chorus every time you open the door. Life is good when I can go out and not be cold.

We have been enjoying Spring as much as possible. A few pics to catch you up.
