Random things

Our next door neighbor is a foster parent. For the last year and a half a 10 year old has been living with them. We walked him to school all last year and he's a friend of Ashley's. I found out yesterday that he's being adopted. YAY! So great for him.

I went shopping today and bought lots of fresh fruits and veggies. Annika just came in and told me she was hungry and wanted a snack and handed me a carton of fresh mushrooms. I told her she wouldn't like them. She insisted she would. So I gave her one. She took a bite and proclaimed, 'I like it!' Then threw the rest away. She just has to be right...

Today at Costco I saw two sets of twin boys. The first mom had two other kids with her and I commented that the transition from 3-4 was my hardest. She said it was her hardest too- but that the twins were numbers 5 and 6! They were 8 weeks old (and tiny!) Then I saw another mom with twin boys on the way out. She asked if Annika and Cori were twins (common question actually- maybe if Annika had more hair she'd look older). I told her that they weren't- they were just close in age. She told me her older two were 15 months apart. Her twins were 7 months. We keep joking that when/if we get pregnant again we should have twin boys. Then we'd for sure have a boy and he'd have a brother (something that concerns me actually- if I'm not going to have two I'd rather just have more girls).

L is mad that she doesn't have a sister, so I understand your worry.

I told her that she'll just have to have more girl friends to make up for it ;)

I agree whole heartedly. I have all sisters and it would have been easier for me if I had been on their same cycle. Thank goodness for a mission, college, living by myself and oh the privledge it is to marry back into a similar situation (the red monster).
