Such a beautiful post and all I can think of is

Mama-mama-mama-mama-mama chameleon. She comes and goes... she comes and go-oh-oh-oes. Loving would be easy if the colours were like my dreams...

damn you, Kit!

I love what your son said about math!! So cute!

Mungee's Ma

"After all they're my role models as much as I'm theirs."

I love that! As much as I kind of want Mungee to stay a baby, I am really looking forward to watching her personality and spirit bloom.


Gorgeous post! My nephews are four years and eight months, respectively, so I can't wait for all of the fun moments like this.

I think my favorite with J, the 4-year-old, was when he asked his mom for a story about vampires. She started spinning the tale of the Daddy Vampire, the Mommy Vampire, and their two awesome Vampire Sons. "Mommy, you forgot one!" he insisted. "Who did I forget? It's just the four of us?" "You forgot Aunt Christine!" I, of course, was ridiculously touched. :)


I want my own miniature people! they seem fun! what are they called again? children? right, children. I want some of those.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to Google where to buy miniature people, I mean children.


I am so glad I followed the journey from BA's blog. I love this post. I was just thinking (and blogging) the other day about how I feel like I have the parenthood thing mastered right now, but I can't imagine what I'm going to do in three years. This gave me a wonderful glimpse into that future instead of a terrified-of-failing-my-family one! Thanks!

AWESOME post. Sometimes I need a reminder just how wonderful little people are. And sleep, sleep is good.


Wow great post.


This could very well be my favorite post of yours. Our kids are 6 (boy) and 4 (girl) and you've done such a wonderful job of verbalizing the pleasures, challenges, hopes and fears involved with parenting kids of this age.

Besides being healthy, of course, I only hoped for our kids to have three qualities: curiosity, compassion and love of laughter. I figured that, with those, everything else would take care of itself.

Got all of them in spades! Since the personality fairy was obviously being so generous, I kind of wished I had pushed it and asked for compliance also. But not really, because as much as it would have made my life easier, their constant questioning will serve THEM better in life. As frustrating as it can be, I'm really enjoying this age.

I prefer going to bed early. So I can get up early and do my exercises. What about you? Posted By discount coach
