Ok. Ok. Ok. I know I am a terrible blogger. My fans are threatening to boycott my website if I don't keep up with it. I have had a request for more stories about poop. That usually is not difficult, but today I was dealing with barf. Emily had a short-lived stomach virus or something. However she did poop this afternoon while I was on the phone with my dad. He asked me if I would look something up online for him while he was visiting my internet deprived 86 year old grandmother. I told him I would in a minute because I had a hiney to wipe. I failed to mention it was Emily's hiney that I was wiping and as I flushed the toilet it occurred to me that I better clarify that to him. I think he was relieved to know I was not pooping while on the phone with him. That would just be weird.

My husband is in the process of kicking his Coke habit. He went a whole day without it today. I'm so proud of him. It saves us a lot of money. Sometimes he has a little bit at work. He is trying to set a good example for the kids at home. Addictions can be so horrible. We keep a little bit on hand in the house just in case of a super urgent craving, but we try not to break into it unless he's desperate. We also buy it when we have house guests because we don't want to be boring hosts. Water can get pretty boring to drink. Oh did I mention that was Diet Coke?

Bradley is Mr. Independent. He is a 3.5 year old who is very good at doing things on his own. Today he was thirsty for milk and hungry for yogurt. So he opened the refrigerator, got out a half -full gallon of milk, a container of yogurt, and grabbed a spoon out of the drawer. He unloaded and named each item as he placed it on the kitchen table. "Spoon, yogurt, milk." Then he placed his finger to his mouth and said aloud, "Hmm. I'm missing something. I know. A cup!" Then he walked over to the cupboard and climbed on the counter and got his Spiderman cup. Bradley will make a good husband someday.

Today was the first bath Wendy has taken without crying.

Today we got home from church to find that Emily wasn't wearing panties under her dress. Unfortunately some things get overlooked when you have lots of small children.
