7 Quick Takes


You know those 'Best By' dates on yogurts. Take my advice and look at those dates before you open a container of your favorite Greek yogurt. I am sure a couple of days after the 'Best By' date is fine, but not a couple months.


If you are trying to teach your boys good table manners with the hope that someday they may actually get though a meal without food all over their faces and clothes, don't take a bite of post date yogurt in front of them while reading to them a chapter from a Percy Jackson book. It's hard to stress the importance of manners when yogurt is coming out of your mouth with "blah-blah-blah" sounds.


Margaret is saying all sorts of cute things lately. We had a Cub Scout banquet and she kept asking when we were leaving for the "bank-lank." Another time she asked where I was and James told her that I had left. She asked, "Did she really left?"


Another thing she keeps doing is having me bend down on one knee so that she can tell me secrets. Every time she wants to do it she has to show me how and explain how she is going to whisper in my ear. These secrets usually include places she is going to hide and toys she plans to take from the brothers. She also gave me a detailed plan on how she plans to sneak cookies from the counter at the farm. The ones in the glass jar that Pepa fills for her.


At least I know where she'll be hiding after the cookies come up missing and I can make her share them with me.


Full of secrets and lessons in logic for the brothers. Margaret was recently asked why she was naked (a fairly regular event around her~ in fact, I hadn't noticed). Her response: "Because I took off all my clothes."


We are currently enjoying an early spring break here.
