An Unexpected Escape from the Tomb!

Resurrection Roll

Resurrection Rolls for breakfast this Easter morning. When baked, a marshmallow, coated in butter, sugar and, cinnamon, then wrapped in a crescent roll creates the perfect representation of the empty tomb.

Well almost. Lucy’s (5yo) reaction: “So Jesus melted?!?”

Mommy Remote


When I picked Lucy up today, she was very excited to show this to me. She currently draws people as heads with legs, so I thought it was just a person. I asked “Who is it?” She replied “Mommy, but you see all these dots?” “Yes,” I replied. “They are buttons,” she told me, “This is a Mommy Remote.” I thought for a second, “You mean that by pushing the buttons you can control mommy?” “Yes!” she responded.

So, I am totally going to have to borrow that from her now!


The Good Old Days

Conversation with Kathleen on the way home from school today:

Kathleen: “Can I have a snack when I get home today?”

Me: “Sure. What do you want?”

Kathleen: “A granola bar. It will be just like the good old days!”

Me: “The good old days?”

Kathleen (in a tone of dismissive incredulity): “You remember . . . The beginning of the school year?”

Me: “Yes, I remember.”

Weirdest thing about the conversation? Kathleen has a granola bar EVERY day after school.


There is a stomach virus moving through my family today. Lucy (3yo) got sick at 4AM, Jenn stayed home with her. Kathleen (6yo) was sick enough by mid-morning that the nurse called to get her picked up from school. When I arrived home, all my girls were cuddled up under a blanket on the couch.

I asked Jennifer what we should do for dinner. Kathleen immediately perked up: “We should get PIZZA!”
