Sick Bay

Last night we had a major puke-a-rama. All night long.

Miraculously, Jeff, Atti and I are still standing. Poor Sam and Patch, though. Man, did they have it rough! It is truly amazing (and disgusting) how so much could come out of such little bodies...over and over again. Are you glad I supplied you with that visual?

The big boys seem to be feeling a little better than they were in the photos from this morning, but still pale and not eating. Not the best end to their winter break...

Happy Birthday Sam!!

You are an amazing, smart, sweet, loving boy. I have loved being your mom SO much, my first baby, my first boy. You are such a great example to your younger brothers and they are so lucky to have you to look up to. We love you endlessly!!

Quote of the day

Sam and I were recently having a conversation about the differences between knight armor and samurai armor. Or, more accurately, Sam was explaining this to me, while I listened. As he finished his explanation, I asked which armor he would prefer to wear if he was going into battle. He replied without pause, "I would prefer to stay in the back!"

That's my boy!

Beautiful Boys

if I do say so myself...

Quote of the day

Trader Joe's new slogan for their peanut butter cup ice cream, copy written by our own Patch.

"This ice cream is SO good, it will kick your mind right into heaven!"

Quote of the day

A gem from Patch.

He was checking out his toes after taking off his new tie-dyed socks. "Wow! What awesome lint!"

Can you believe that I don't make this stuff up?

Happy Birthday Patch!

I love you, sweet boy!
I couldn't be happier or prouder to be your mom.
