Don't People Realize Clowns Are Scary?

I was going through some phonics flash cards with Olivia. She was having a blast, and kept asking for more...until I came across this one...

She took it, looked at it for a moment, handed it back to me, and said, "All done."

So, why couldn't the manufacturer of these cards include something that was actually kid-friendly, like a cloud or a clock? The only explanation I can think of is that this was someone's idea of a sick joke.

The girls take the stage for the first time

Patrice and Olivia made their debut tonight at our school's variety show. Olivia was having so much fun she didn't want to leave the stage.

November 15, 2010: A Bitter-Sweet Day

On Monday of this week we had a used Rainbow Play System installed in the backyard for the kids. Our dog, June, had a blast running around and playing with us. You can see her in the background.

Sadly, this is the last picture ever taken of her. About 15 minutes after this was taken, she pushed open the garage door, which hadn't latched properly, and ran into the street where she was struck by a car.

We took her to the vet, but had to put her down a couple hours later. Not exactly the fun and exciting afternoon we had imagined.

We'll miss our June.

Yes, I'm Aware My Kids Don't Look Like Me

I was at Macy's with Olivia when a salesperson there commented on how cute she was. Noting the obvious difference in appearance, he asked, "Does she look like her mother?" I smiled and said, "I have no idea."
