Spring fever: What are you getting all excited about?
Major thanks for your candid responses to Monday's post about our having a third kid. Survey says, "Just do it!" Dave and I have a lot to talk about during our vacation next week. Given that we're going to Disney World, I am not sure how clearheaded our thinking will be. Today I asked Sabrina if she'd like a baby brother or sister. "I'd like a puppy," she said, definitively. Ooooooooo-kay, then.
It was gloriously beautiful outside today, total weather schizophrenia: There was a crazy storm this weekend and the unfinished part of our basement flooded. We spent most of Saturday night sopping up water with towels and exhausting our wet vac. (Do we know how to have a good time or what?) I let the kids have ice-cream twice today, I couldn't resist. Signs of spring are all around: the green shoots of daffodils sprouting in our backyard, the happy shouts of kids playing outside, Peeps (gotta get my hands on some purple ones), and the bright yellow flyer that arrived in the mail inviting us to opening day of the Little League Challenger Division, for kids with disabilities ages 5 to 18. There's contact info on the site, if you want to look into this.
Here's a video of Max in action last spring that some of you may recall; it made me so proud. And, no, Dave wasn't drunk when he shot it.
