Just bought 15 boxes of cereal. Cashier asked if I was stocking up. I laughed. Then, she saw the 5 gallons of milk. Nope.
April 5 - Meet our new family member, Ms. Kitty. She is a miniature horse, and is sweet as pie! My girls are over the moon!
Ivey: "Mommy, can you come and give us hugs and kisses?"
Me: "Of course, it is one of my favorite things to do!"
Olive: "It's your job. You do it a lot."

This morning, Jeff and I tried to get a few minutes of extra sleep while the girls sat on top of us, talking.
Ivey: "Olive, I was on my bike and you were on your three headed bicycle."
Ivey: "Your three headed bicycle."
With my eyes still closed, I help her out, "Tricycle, Ivey."
Olive: "Yeah. And I was the only person riding it, so it was just one-headed."

Ivey walked into the room tonight and said,
"I want my nickname to be Steve..... I wish my real name was Steve..... Why didn't you name me Steve?"
And she turned, and walked away.

Olive: "You're going to have to drive me to college. I don't know the way."
I guess we've moved past obsessing over the details of how/where she will purchase her first car.

Got to brag on my son for a bit.... Asa played goalie in their first
playoff game tonight. No one scored on him until half way through 2nd
period. The game tied and ended up going into 5 minutes of overtime.
It was still tied. Went to a shoot-out. Both goalies did an amazing
job. After 12 shooters took shots on each goal, we ended up losing....
but it didn't change how proud I was of Asa! What should have been 1
hour game was almost an hour and 45 minutes. The other team played
aggressively, and Asa did a fabulous job tending the net!

I had to ask Olive a list of questions about her preschool for a
scrapbook. One question was, "What is your
favorite thing to do at school?" Olive's answer: Clean the placemats.
