We started off with an event filled morning. First off I had a great night's sleep due to a new mattress cover we just purchased for my back. It is 4 inches of foam part regular foam, part memory foam and it was VERY helpful. Now, this a.m. we felt like we had to climb out of bed, as it is pretty soft, but ahhhh, not having to toss and turn all night with terrible back pain was really a pleasure.....
So, first thing, darling Erika gets up early while Mike and I are having our morning coffee and our new little "bra wearer" says, "Mother, you need to put on a bra!"
"Erika, don't you know that your mom is a card carrying member of the national burn your bra society????"
She says, "Yes, now go put on your bra mother!" LOL
Well, Yes Maam!!!....
This is Sarah's Pirate Look! AYE!
How's that for a challenging look to a good game of backgammon?
Guess who won?
And by 1 move!!!!!
All the while, Anna was quietly reading her new favorite book on the couch.
I love it when kids start to read for pleasure. Marcus and Tim used to LOVE Calvin and Hobbs.
