Gotta love kids!

Me(wondering where Tucker is and why he’s so quiet):  Tucker, what are you doing?
Tucker(who is 3 1/2): Playing with my penis.
Me: Why? 
Tucker: I want to.  (Long pause.)  Emmie doesn’t have a penis.  Isn’t that sad?  I think we need to go to the store and get her a penis.
Me: Girls don’t have penis’; they have vaginas.
Tucker: Do you have a china?
Me: Yes
Tucker: Do chinas make you want to go to the store?
Me: Um…I guess so.

Hair, Hair…long beautiful hair.

Ok…yeah, I’m a music dork.  But when I saw a hair contest online(via Heather over at The Spohrs Are Multiplying, who is a pretty funny chica), the first thing I did was to break into song: 

Shining, Gleaming, Streaming, Flaxen, Waxen.
Flow it, show it, long as God can grow it.  My hair.

But after I got done with my mini-rock out moment, I realized that it might be fun to have the “hair savant” at Hair Thursday take a whoorl at my hair.  If you any of you know me IRL, then you’re well aware of my hair cycles.  I let it grow out to hippie length, do nothing with it other than pull it back.  Then I get super-annoyed with the fact that all I ever do is put it in a ponytail-which is very comfortable and practical, but not very pretty.  So I cut it.  And when I say cut, I mean cut…super short, do-nothing-to-it hair.  Ugly hair.  Terrible hair.  And then, because it’s so short, it takes ages and many uglier stages to grow back out!  I know I do this.  You know I do this.  Why doesn’t somebody stop me next time??????

So anyway, the deal is that Casey is sponsoring a hair transformation contest.  You post pictures of your hair-the good, the bad, the ugly.  Casey will pick the winner.  Sarah will feature the winner on the Hair Thursday blog.  Readers will vote on the hair options.  And then(here’s the best part) Casey will pay for the winner to go to the salon!

So…here goes:
The good:  
Eventhough it’s a bit wind-blown, I love how the curls really stand out,
and I love the way the sun brought out all the red!

The bad, the ugly: 
My computer crashed, losing a lot of my pictures. 
I would normally have LOTS of bad, ugly hair pictures. 
But…this is the one I had the easiest access to.

Seriously, what was I thinking with the itty bitty pony tails??  Never a good idea. 
Also never a good idea: overalls, which you will notice I’m wearing.

And here’s my hair as it is today-long, stringy, and always pulled back:
(well not technically today because I’m covered in paint and have my hair in-you guessed it-a pony tail)




Last call!

I kind of can’t believe it!  Tonight will be the last time Marshall sleeps at the children’s hospital!!!!  After 5 years of him being gone at least once a week, it’ll be almost weird to have him home every night.
