On a side note - Bean is swimming. I'll post a pic tomorrow. Let me tell you this is a HUGE improvement from last year. Last year you would have thought I was KILLIN the kid if I sat him on the steps of the pool. Now he hops in there (with a life vest) and kicks as hard as he can and moves about an inch an hour.
Tires him out nicely.

Swimming is good clean fun. Don't tell Bean that. said...

I love that you heart Meet me in St. Louis. I have been known to randomly burst into the Trolley Song.

Also, swimming = tired? The best part about it, dear.

Tranny Head said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog:)

Danielle said...

Yay! Did you love My Sister's keeper?!!! After I read your answers I wanted to go change some of mine. I would love to open a no kill animal shelter as well. Thanks for participating.

Hyphen Mama said...

I loved My Sister's Keeper... and all her other books, too! Now it takes me weeks to read one book because who has time to read anything but kid books?

Wynnie starts swim lessons next week. She has to retake the first class because she failed last year. OOPS.

It'll take me a day or so to do the meme, because I haven't thought about some of those things in a while! But I'll do it! Thanks for thinking of me!!

ha ah the one that made me really chuckle was the "who wants to go outside and weewee" I didn't see the (to the dogs) at the end and kept rereading it thinking, "is she saying this to her kids". Yea, I retarded... it took me a second to figure it out. ha ha

Hyphen Mama said...
