Pancake Hair

So Eden, my daughter, wants to cut her hair to her shoulders. While we were on a walk I asked her if she was sure and why she wanted to cut her hair and she simply said ” because then when I turn to talk to someone when I’m eating pancakes, my hair won’t get all sticky and syrupy from touching my plate.” 8 year old logic at its finest.

What are some funny and humorous things that your kids have said!?

Teenaged surgery…

So my eldest baby girl, Nikki (17) is going in for surgery on Monday morning she will be in the hospital for 2 days.

She has asymmetrical enlarged tonsils with no indication of infection (mono, strep, tonsillitis etc.)  They will be removing them and then doing a biopsy to see if there are any abnormal cells….

Needless to say I’m a little bit of a mess.  Playing it cool and strong for her but really I’m feeling rather weak and vulnerable.

This quote is more for me than anyone else right now!

Keep us in your thoughts this week please.

Thanks,
