Valentine's Day

Well, Valentine's Day this year was not filled with a romantic dinner or cuddling, but me lying in bed sick. I did get roses and a funny card - not a romantic card, but a card none the less. I also got to sleep in, but it's hard to enjoy it when you have a yucky nose making it hard to breath when you lay down.

My hubby also took care of the kids by taking them to Noah's Upward Basketball game and to Chick-fil-a .....which was wonderful and I will take that over chocolate any day.

You know it stinks to be sick any time of year, but there are certain days that would be so much better when you are healthy......your birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas, your wedding anniversary and Valentine's Day.

I wonder if Puffs ever thought about making a Valentine theme tissue box?

Snow, Snow, Snow!

We finally got some snow! And I mean SOME! Not a lot, but enough for the kids to enjoy a little sledding, snowball fights with daddy and just have some plain old fun!

Snow was predicated in the forecast to start around 12am.... but here in Wake Forest, NC that could be a little, a lot or known at all. So we kept an eye on things through the night. When I got up to use the potty around 1am I looked out the window to check and there was none. Around 4am when I looked out the window there was snow, but it wasn't sticking to the ground. Then around 7am I woke-up to kids singing, "snow, snow, snow!" So I looked out the window and yeah there was some snow... and it was sticking to the ground and enough on the grass for the kids not only to be excited, but daddy too!

When they say, "Don't worry mommie" you worry!

So, Jessie once again surprises me with her very unique personality. I see her in the hallway with her brush and the detangling spray that I use on her hair. I ask her to put it back so she does not waste the spray. About 10 minutes later I am walking past her and look at her and her hair looks really wet and slicked back. I take a double take and wonder what has she done to her hair!

I ask her to come closer and upon closer viewing discover she has cut her bangs! Not just a little, but a lot and very short. I ask her, "what was she thinking?" She does not answer. I go to the hallway where I saw her brushing her hair, no I ask her, "where did you cut your hair?" She shows me the evidence and lots of it in the kitchen, which makes for easy clean up.

I bag up the hair and we go sit to have a little chat while I examine herself haircut a little closer. I ask her, " what was she thinking and why did she think it was okay to cut her hair?" She just lowered her head and finally answered, "mommie, don't worry it's only hair and it will grow back." All I can say is, "oh Jessie" and think ya it will grow back but not till summer and that's 5 months away!
