Ok so as Spring is supposed to be approaching and Easter season is near...so comes the April Bug to our home.  I am not talking about some cute little large eyed creature bringing goodies or helping that imaginary "bunny" we all speak about to the kids..I mean a vicious infectious little monster of a bug...you know the kind..the kind that leads to a path worn in the rug between the bathroom and the couch.  So this is what our little family has been battling for the past three days.  Still we count our blessings...one of which is we have indoor plumbing...and running water.  Never thought I'd say it..but Yahoo laundry machine!!  On the bright side the pretty little tulip plants I bought from walmart and didn't get a chance to plant..(which was also a blessing  because it is 24 degrees outside) have decided to bloom bringing the most beautiful spring colors of purple and yellow into our home!  They are so pretty and remind me that spring always comes ...when it is ready.  So I guess it is just a matter of holding on!!!  Ok..mother nature...I am waiting..and waiting...and waiting....
I will mention a nice little mommy moment witnessed this morning...when one of the boys recommended to the other that he say "Yes PLEASE" to me when requesting cinnamon toast for breakfast.   One of the highs of parenting is when they start to teach each other what you have taught them!!!  This will hold me over for the next.."he hit me" or the next "he looked at me" or the next "he poked me"..and so on...
