Lazy Saturday

without comments

Some Saturdays are made for getting out of the house and adventuring: going to a park and running around or going to the beach, perhaps. Some Saturdays are made for housework. Some Saturdays are made for travelling or socializing or games.

And some Saturdays…aren’t.

Conversations with Kelsey (Part n of a Series)

with one comment

Kelsey, Age 7:  I really want all of my dreams to come true.

Me:  Well, they can.  You have to work hard for them.  No one’s going to just give you your dreams, but if you work hard, you can do anything you want.

Kelsey:  I’m working really, really hard for a baby pony.

Oh, hi! Long time no see!

So it’s been, um, six months since I updated the site.  At all.  That’s just…just…deplorable.  You have my sincerest apologies for being so incredibly lame with the updating.  I’m sure I’ve been very very busy the last six months — I know there’s something which must have kept me from posting anything here.

I’m going to try to be around for you more.  It’s not fair of me to string you along with a number of incisive, witty posts and then drop you like you’re aflame.  I don’t have time for a full post here right now, sadly, but I hope to be back later this weekend — maybe after I see Star Trek tomorrow.  But in the meantime, just to prove to you I have been doing something, I give you two pictures I drew of my lovely daughters:

Kelsey @ 7

Laurel @ 5

More soon!

Raising Them Right… er, Left

The following conversation took place this afternoon between Kelsey and Brandon, both six years old, while riding home from apple picking:

KELSEY:  We’re gonna vote for Obama.

BRANDON:  John McCain wants to make it so kids won’t have any money when they grow up.

KELSEY:  Yeah, that’s why we’re gonna vote for Obama.

BRANDON:  Me too, I’m voting for Obama.

A pause.

BRANDON:  John McCain sucks.

Six Years Old

with one comment

I’m far too exhausted from helping throw a fantastically successful birthday party to write up a proper post, but I didn’t want to let the day pass without marking the occasion of Kelsey’s turning six. SIX! How in the hell did that happen?!

Kelsey, Age 6

 

Happy birthday, little (well, not quite so little anymore) girl!
