The Firehouse Tour

I had the opportunity to give the kids an awesome experience yesterday! My MOMS Club arranged for a tour of the local fire station! We got to meet the firemen, tour the station, check out the fire engines, and even use the fire hose!! Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of the kids holding the fire hose, but if anyone sends me one I will update. Both kids loved it, but Xander was especially excited! He got really excited and kept pointing to the fire truck and kept trying to cut in line to spray the fire hose! It was an experience they will remember for a long time!

Rosemary Rayne

Four is a funny, funny year. Not only is Rosemary super smart, she's a super smarty-pants as well.

Background story: a couple weeks ago I spilled an entire mug of coffee on the computer, resulting in a panic. The screen went blank, I disconnected and removed all sources of power, and turned it upside down to dry until Joe got home and took it all apart, cleaned it, and brought it back from the dead.

So, now back to today. Rosemary spilled her milk twice. The second time she knocked it off the table, soaking the chair and area rug with milk. As I'm scolding her for being careless, she notices that I am drinking a cup of coffee.

Rosemary: Mommy, you have to be careful and hold your coffee with two hands.

Me: I'm an adult and I'm [here's where I see where she's going, so I proceed with hesitation] know how to hold my coffee cup.

R: Not always. Remember when you spilled your coffee on the computer? [then she mimics me taking a sip of coffee with one hand, dropping the cup, and innocently saying "oops."]

What a stinkpot!

Then a few minutes later I caught her doing this:

Rosemary: "Mommy, I think I'm already a sunbeam for Jesus because I smile so hard:"

I'm guessing they were talking about "sunbeams for Jesus" at school today. She's cracking me up today!

Green Smoothie

Xander had been refusing to eat lately. I found the trick: let Rosemary feed him with a syringe.
