Thursday Threes (Good things come in threes like 3 pictures of the sweetness of children!)

"On THURSDAY morning
They're up with the larks
To build a fire of lightning sparks..."

 "...Then all day long
They mix and bake
Very delicious

Bath time for baby just like mommy bathes me!
Piggy toes are so yummy! Let me just get this other bootie off!

Hi there and welcome to our newest family blog!

I have five minutes to write this first blog entry as that's about how long I have before my toddler son returns with his sisters and daddy from the grocery store and then I will be otherwise detained until about bedtime as he apparently has gotten his second wind and a balloon, which is his most favorite thing in all the world to play with. I'm beginning to really question this weekend hoopla about taking a break from the hectic work week. I have spent all day long going from one clean-up and repair job to the next and let me tell you that I'm am so surprised that our house is still standing after today! What a little stinker he is. While I was trying to get Barbie's head out of the potty with the plunger, he disassembled his daddy's drums stool and all, and then while I am desperately trying to re-assemble those so that his daddy doesn't return him to the hospital (the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit no less- ummm... honey I don't think they take 4 year olds back even if he is a newly turned 4 years old!),  he has gotten grease all over his bed including his sister's pink bunny while he was "washing his hands." So as I'm sitting here keyboarding this like a maniac trying to muster enough energy to endure these last few hours before bedtime. The girls are planning on reenacting Dora's Birthday Party scene so maybe they will invite him since he has a new balloon and he's ready for a party! I hope to be able to spend some quality time on this new blog a bit later for a proper introduction but until then I'll leave you to decide whether or not you think this precious little boy could ever even do anything naughty! :o)

Great Parenting Quotes!

Here's To The Magic Of All Children!!!

~ Once the children were in the house the air became more vivid and more heated; every object in the house grew more alive ~Mary Gordon
~ Children are the anchors that hold a mother to life ~ Sophocles
~ The child must know that he is a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn't been, and until the end of the world there will not be, another child like him. ~Pablo Casals
~ Whatever they grow up to be, they are still our children, and the one most important of all the things we can give to them is unconditional love. Not a love that depends on anything at all except that they are our children.~ Rosaleen Dickson
~ Children are our second chance to have a great parent-child relationship ~Laura Schlessinger
~ Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy
~ Among the mind's powers is one that comes of itself to many children and artists. It need not be lost, to the end of his days, by anyone who has ever had it. This is the power of taking delight in a thing, or rather in anything, not as a means to some other end, but just because it is what it is. A child in the full health of his mind will put his hand flat on the summer lawn, feel it, and give a little shiver of private glee at the elastic firmness of the globe. ~ Charles E. Montaque 1867
~ There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again. ~ Elizabeth Lawrence
~ The highlight of my childhood was making my brother laugh so hard that food came out of his nose ~
Garrison Keillor
