The Latest

 The latest: 
We survived 4 whole entire days with Adam being out of town, and it was during the weekend which is when he is usually home with us, so we felt pretty accomplished for getting through that unscathed! 
It involved eating at quick cheap restaurants every single night so that I wouldn't go insane trying to make dinner with two children crying for my attention and it was the perfect excuse to get out of the house, we try to be outside of the house as much as possible to avoid craziness.
One of the places we went to was this hole-in-the-wall Indian place that was way yummy, Ella loved it because "chickin" is currently one of her favorite foods.
There was an old bollywood movie going on in the corner and everything.
And my beautiful friend, Krislyn, who is one of the most selfless people I know, came and helped me with the kids on Saturday and Sunday when I was starting to go stir-crazy, it was so nice to talk to another adult after several days of only having kids for company.

Ella came over to me with the TV remote control in her hand.
She knows the remote control is a no-no.
She held out the remote to me and said, "Yes oh no?" (yes or no?) which is a question I ask her when she is doing something she shouldn't, "Is that a yes or a no?"
"That would be a no," I told her.
"Yeah!" She exclaimed, so proud of me, "A no!" And handed the remote to me.

Fenton's two bottom teeth have poked through, they are adorable.
And he has to have his clothes changed several times a day due to drool.

I was about to head out the door but I couldn't find a certain pair of shoes that I needed and I asked Adam, as I searched the living room, "Have you seen my shoes?"
Ella was in the living room and heard the question and she immediately walked over to a basket of shoes that we keep right by the door and pulled out two mismatched flip flops and put them side by side on the floor for me so that I could slip them on and run out the door.
Almost died over the sweetness of that and I felt so sad that I couldn't wear the flip flops since it was cold outside and I was in Sunday dress.
I thanked her profusely and when she saw I had grabbed another pair of shoes she carefully put the flip-flops back in the basket.

 I am in love with the musical West Side Story.
It is just fantastic in so many ways.
And I especially love the song "Maria" in that musical.
I've been singing that song to Ella and Fenton since each of them was born and we regularly listen to it in the car.
The other day we were driving and I started singing, "The most beautiful sound I ever heard, Ma-," and then I paused to see what Ella would do, to see if she had paid any attention at all to that song as we listen to it in the car and sure enough this little sing-song voice in the backseat responded, "-RIA!!!"
I died of pride right there and then.

 And this article, called Happiness, Your Heritage is absolutely beautiful, I love it!
When I read it I feel like every part of me just wants to sing because it's so true
(that was a cheesy thing to say but that's just what it feels like)!
