Odds and Ends

My goal is to be in bed by 10:30 tonight. I haven't made it all week, so the chances are slim, but it is good to have a goal. So let's make this quick.

Pearl's hair is getting long.


It falls in her face most of the time. That means I should pull it back, but she isn't a fan of having her hair done. Oddly, Tyler does her hair more often than I do, but I think that is because he likes to style it. He only uses water, so when it dries, it doesn't look half bad, but right after the styling, I think she could pick up a radio signal in Iowa.



Tyler will have the envious job of getting five girls ready for church most Sunday mornings. So please smile and admire his handiwork when the girls shuffle in, and remember that I wasn't around.

In other news, Daisy has some stuff going on with her ears. We are still in the midst of everything, so I will wait to put all the details, but the good news is that she will probably need something normal like tubes. (Yay for no serious damage.) Ivory tends to be Daisy's mom around here. She is always concerned with what Daisy is doing. I try to remind her gently to mind her own business, but sometimes you need more persuasive methods.


Really this is a rare moment. 1) Because they usually get along pretty well, and 2) Because I normally use masking tape. Just kidding. We use the tape about once a year to remind everyone that we are serious about this whole parenting thing.

This last picture is for you mom. We took it shortly after you made fun of me for being afraid of a spider. I'm sorry that I haven't posted it until now. I know you will enjoy it.


Ant that's all for now folks.

Ok already - those ants give me the creeps! Intellectually I know that they aren't really threatening, but I get shivers down my spine thinking about them. I think you should go back and look at your post where the tarantula is crawling on Pearl!

Ants don't really scare me although that many of them on me?! Creepy! but some of my Aunts(pause for bad pun effect) do scare me!

Gah those ants are freaking me right out. I know that they can't hurt me, but still! I love the hair jobs done by Tyler.
