"Banana bread" I told him.
Ethan: "Is it the healthy stuff?"
Ethan: "It smells awesome, but if it is healthy, I don't want any."
(he did finish all his broccoli at dinner though)
I was picking Nicholas up at preschool the other day and he saw a sign with a tow truck towing a car on it.
Nick: "Mom, what does that sign mean?"
Me: "If someone parks there for more than 10 minutes, the tow truck will come and tow them away."
Nick: "Do they tow you away to a better parking spot?"
Me: "No, they tow you to a special parking lot far away and then you give them money to get your car back."
Nick: "I want to be a tow truck driver when I am a big boy!"
Renee was chomping on a piece of celery when she bit her tongue. She screamed, but was upset at the fact that her mouth was still full pulverized celery. So I put my hand under her mouth and told her to "spit it out". And she did. All over my face, all over my shirt, and all over my pants. I wonder where she learned that from.

A few months ago while cruising through my friend Erin's blog, I came across a post she did about a woman on ETSY that makes personalized necklaces. Even though I am not much of a jewelery person, I fell in love with the idea of this and went ahead and had one made for myself. I got it a few months ago, but in my usual lazy posting style, just haven't mentioned it yet.
The ETSY site (birthdesigns) is closed for awhile - she is busy having baby number four and I guess the necklace making has been put to the back burner for a bit. If you want to have a look at her other stuff though, she does have a webpage here. This particular necklace is the mother's circle, front toggle version. My photo doesn't do it much justice.
