Nothing brings you instantly back to your childhood faster than a heaping pile of strawberry Jell-o With whipped cream.
Its a rite of passage and should be given out in those diaper bags that the nurses hand to all those new moms with new babies. It should be written on page 2 of "What To Expect When Your Expecting." EXPECT to make LOTS of Jell-o. Preferably Strawberry Flavor with a dollop of freshly made whipped cream. Mmmmm.
So tonight, after a delicious dinner of baked chicken, everyone got a bowl full of sweet goodness.
I happily ate my share with a piping hot cup of evening coffee and had Molly read to me from her reading book.
It was good.
Our Little Red House is just starting to re-coup from cabin fever... again! Since Friday the heavens opened up and rain has been pouring on our Little Red House. Gloomy days have taken their toll on us and perhaps we got a bit too excited when the sun started to peak out from behind the clouds.
Tomorrow the southern weather is returning. YAAAA
We plan on venturing out.
But while we were trapped up for days we kept busy with lots of things. School continues on until Spring Break. Im working on memorizing my lines for our Church Easter Performance and whenever I get a moments peace Im studying and test-taking all my Travel Agent information. I LOVE it and look forward to more bookings.
My kids have also become "experts" as well since they insist on
breathing down my neck watch me while I study and view these classes online.
Such is life.
Im going to leave you with my most precious picture of the night.:
My Little Miss P. who has (almost) officially become a thumb sucker. Its happening more and more and tonight, for the first time, as she was crying and I was crawling around in the dark looking for her paci... she soothed herself back to sleep with her tiny thumb in her little mouth. I could have just eaten her up right there.
Now don't be hatin and fill my comment section on all unsolicited
usless advice that I could care less about. After all, Im not dumb.
I know, as a Mom of 6 children. S-I-X.... that they will eventually get off my hip, they will eventually sleep in their own bed and they won't go off to college sucking their thumb.
So until then, I will lean over my sweet baby's crib and stare at her in the dark and smile.
