I can't stop laughing

Probably my favorite picture of Emma is one when she and Tucker were babies.  She is peeking from around the back of him and it makes me crack up every time I see it. 

This picture is a close second.  Jill had taken the girls to Old Navy and Emma walked off as Jill was checking out.  This is where she found her.  I have laughed about it all day.

Why is it that I was quick to discipline my own kids with few regrets but when I hear about the grandkids getting in trouble it just kills me?  It's not that I disagree that they needed to be in trouble.  I totally support their parents in lowering the boom.  It will make the "littles"  so much more pleasant to be around, but it still rips my heart out.

 It more than likely has to do with the fact that the kids are totally entertained at my house and I am not subjected to the day in, day out routine that can cause grumpiness. 

Boo Hoo.  He got in trouble. 

Don't be fooled by this adorable face.  Sister needs a shock collar.  If ANYONE needs to be constantly watched, it's this one.  Trust me, I know.  She ate a large amount of my lip balm this week.

Old Friends are the best friends

Once I started working after my kids were in school,  I worked in a chiropractic office.  We hired a massage therapist and we quickly became very good friends.  NO ONE has made me laugh harder and we have such a history of hysterical moments that are probably best left unsaid.  Sometimes you meet people that bring out the "inner you."  Linda is that type of person.  Unfortunately she moved to Seattle many years ago.  We've stayed in touch but yesterday she emailed me and said she was in town.

She stopped by the office and the years fell away.  My heart is warmed through and through.  AND I found a $1 coin in the parking lot at Bed, Bath & Beyond so it was a GOOD DAY!!
