A reason

Back before we had 2 kids, people would tell us that it wasn't that big of a deal to have a second. I always assumed this was codswallop, and let me tell you, it really truly is codswallop. (I like that word today. Go with it.)

But then they do things that can just kill you dead with the cute. Like tell you that pancakes would make their legs feel better. Really, they would. Just make the pancakes and my legs will feel better and then I'll go to school. Otherwise I'll be forced to just lie here all day and play the Wii.
Or, please buy me that handband at Target. Then I'll wear it while I stand on the kitchen chairs while you make food for me to eat. And I'll look sweet while I do it. Look at me.

But, mostly, when that ridiculous brother of mine wails on the steps about whether or not his 5 minutes are up, I'll climb up next to him and be ridiculously cute. More cute than you can take. See? Just try to stand it.

The word

Cindy: 'Suzy, come by mom for a new nappie.'
Suzy, lips in perfect O form, 'Nooooooooooooooooooo.'


Honestly, I ask you, how does one not file into a pile of giggles when a lovely little girl says such a thing? Especially, when she then walks over, arms back, belly out and plops herself down on the ground with legs up for the change?

It seems when she wakes up each morning, she is an inch taller and tries to figure out something new to do. Yesterday she started on the landing of the stairs and used the railing to walk down as we would. Upon alighting, she threw her arms up in 'yay baby' form and expected applause.

Of course, this is all preferable to Harry's antics over the weekend, which ended with his cousin at the emergency room getting 5 stitches. Blood is so gross.

But isn't he just the most handsome thing you've ever seen?
