I am a stay at home mom who is trying to remain humored by the material my little girls provide me with on a daily basis.
What else? Let's see...I love sneaking quiet moments with my hubby, could go antique shopping every day, and enjoy gardening...even pulling the weeds!
I have recently been diagnosed with a couple of brain tumors-an acoustic neuroma and a meningioma. Thankfully both are benign, just large and not very fun to remove. I haven't blogged for a while, but am reviving it to post prayer requests and updates on my health in a manner that friends can access easily. Thanks for following along!
Excuse me while I backtrack here a bit. Just in case I do ever decide to print parts of this little ol' blog out as some sort of scrapbook I wanted to get down a couple of memories of our zoo trip a couple of weeks back.
Sunglasses and snacks...they were ready to go.
We live equidistant from two really good zoos, but have generally gone to the one to our west simply because it has a better reputation...namely it hasn't had any gorilla escapes in recent years. Ahem.
However this time we went to the one on our way to East Texas since we needed to drop off the girls with my in-laws for a visit while we helped my mom move. We were pleasantly surprised.
Jerry and I were thrilled that although it was a beautiful day during most of the area school districts' spring break, the zoo was NOT busy.
I wish I had large crowds to blame for my inability to get a decent picture of our girls together at the zoo...remember these? I knew Jade was chubby a year ago, but my, oh my. A mother's love just sees past some things. Rolls and rolls of things.
I need to learn how to merge these photos together to get one good one.
Anyway, the girls had a blast. Although it wasn't the animals that were so exciting to them...unless you counted the ones on the carousel...
or anything else she could "ride" on...
No, rather it was these "dungeon doors" found at both the entrance and at the monorail station that just fascinated Lily to pieces. Like she seriously couldn't get over them. It was funny. And I promise we don't have any weird sort of discipline taking place at home. Promise. Remember that Lily has trouble breathing in time out, so a dungeon...that would surely give her a heart attack.
And Jade? Although she knows her animal names/sounds well when looking at a book, everything bigger than a dog was a "moo cow" that day. It was a little embarrassing. Her fascination though? All of the water features. She and Pooh enjoyed many a stare at various pools of water. And of course her yellow "Bay" was always along too.
I'm thinking her prom date will need to make room for her two yellow friends in the limo. And I better start thinking of discreet ways of incorporating them into her wedding.
Or, maybe I should quit washing them in hopes that their stench keeps all boys away.
