You are a good daddy

Drew got home from work and Nora requested some of his time upstairs in her beauty salon. It was very entertaining listening to the two of them.

I remember when we first had Ethan and Drew would dress form head to toe in a contamination suit complete with charcoal mask just to change the diaper genie. Wretching the entire time.
Now when Nora needs a change he can even do it with one wipe instead of the entire box.

He use to be so grossed out when some baby food would get on his pants, he would change and shower to clean off. Now he just wipes it into his pants more to get rid of the loose stuff and shrugs "ooh well"

I went up to check at how his salon appointment was going and I found this

looks good love
Look how careful she is being.

It might be a bit hard to tell, but I will give you a few guesses as to who runs the show around here.


I am grateful Gabe did not actually break his foot like we first thought. He only bruised it very badly. like I said earlier, at least one ER trip a month.

I am grateful its the weekend.

I am grateful my husband is man enough to wear bows, pink, green, yellow, and blue scarves and ladybug hair clips. 
Even if he does not understand how much this will mean to her, he trusts it will one day, so he does it anyway.


Family business

This morning I woke up to this

Hack hack!, cough cough!

Actually I did not sleep last night at all (I had a rough night) I hate it when Drew is traveling for work, anything that is going to go wrong will only ever happen when Drew is away.

This morning it progressively got more and more smokey, until it was so thick it has become hard to breath.
Apparently all this smoke is from B.C. I hate forest fires. Thanks for sharing B.C. but you can keep it to yourself next time.

Because it was so gross outside, today has been a stay at home, try to breath day. The children have been keeping busy by killing flies. Seth and Nora stun them with a quick smack with the fly swatter, then flick them onto the floor where Gabe is waiting with the wii bat to finish them off. He also has a napkin laid out to decrease the blood splatter and mess. So very thoughtful.

It is quite the operation they have going here. Drew and I always stress teamwork, and that is especially important in homicide and execution related activities. I am even more impressed with the attention to detail in regards to clean up. 18 have been reported "taken care of" so far. I am so proud *gush*

I am grateful for my friend Sam from England. She makes me laugh, and she downloaded an app on her phone called Charlie bit me, that made me laugh really hard. 

I am grateful the restaurant messed up my order tonight so not only did I get a discount, they made me another meal to take home for lunch tomorrow.

I am grateful I will be asleep before 3 am tonight.
