Daily Life

When we put the kids to bed I'll give Chas a few books to read in his crib and Bonnie will pick out some books or grab pen and paper to color with. It usually works out pretty well putting the kids to bed this way because it gives them time to wind down on their own - something I find hard to do as an adult. Sometimes when Bonnie is drawing in bed at night she gets bored with plain old pencils, so she'll sneak into my office and take my felt tip pens. Then when I go into the office in the morning I'll find that most of my pens are missing. I then have to go into her bedroom and hunt around for pens. I must admit this totally cracks me up.

Yesterday the summer bulbs I ordered arrived. Just in time for Mother's Day! On Mother's Day at our house we plant all our summer flowers and then later we go to Jay's mother's house and do the same for her. We did this last year and it was just so much fun and I'm really looking forward to doing it again this year. Of course I jumped a little early on the flower thing and bought some a while back and planted them but thankfully we still have plenty of room for the new bulbs. Plus I think I should always mention the ideas I have in my head are way more grandiose than what I'm ever able to accomplish. So around the time the baby arrives I should be getting some really pretty flowers and I must admit I am so incredibly excited. Probably more excited then I should be but maybe this will help me get through my morning without any Diet Coke. I forgot to stock up on that yesterday. Oh well.

That's awesome about the flowers. I drove by a house last night that had thousands of tulips blooming in their yard. It was absolutely gorgeous. I'll have to drive by everyday until they die. Also, I think you should go get a diet coke RIGHT NOW!

Planting flowers/bulbs on mother's day is a great thing to do. Maybe I"ll start that tradition this year.

I love the flower bulbs planting idea. I love flowers any time. I'll be looking for them when I get there this summer. I hope it doesn't rain.

I wish we could plan flowers, they don't last because the deer eat them. We have some radishes planted, and we are going to plant more vegetables and hope that they deer don't discover them. They probably will we have people in the area that have extensive netting and even dog runs around their gardens to keep the deer out.
