A big thumbs up for me at Mickey D's.
The Aggie and I took the Girl to McDonald's for lunch on Saturday. She had been at the church work day with Daddy all morning and was set for an afternoon of shopping with Mommy & Meme (my mom). As we're walking through McDonald's to leave, the Girl dropped her cup. She just stood there looking at it and I told her to pick it up. She said, I can't , it got me wet. to which I replied, well then, maybe you just don't need to go shopping. She quickly picked up the cup. Another mom who was seated nearby with her son caught my eye and gave me a big thumbs up and a smile. She said, it's so nice to see someone actually practice discipline with their child. I felt good the rest of the afternoon.
The next time you see someone's child behaving nicely or reacting well to discipline, maybe you might compliment them. It can really make a frazzled mom's day.

I was shocked! ;-)
by Vladimir Nabokov
Considered by most to be depraved and immoral, you are obsessed with
sex. What really tantalizes you is that which deviates from societal standards in every
way, though you admit that this probably isn't the best and you're not sure what causes
this desire. Nonetheless, you've done some pretty nefarious things in your life, and
probably gotten caught for them. The names have been changed, but the problems are real.
Please stay away from children.

What a guy!
Saturday I had to work. That meant the Aggie was home with the Girl by himself all day. He's done this plenty of times so it wasn't any big deal. However, I came home from work to find that, not only did he keep the Girl occupied all day, they had cleaned the bathrooms and made the beds. You really have to love a man that cleans.
The Aggie and I actually went out on a date Friday night, paid for a sitter even! We went to a local weekend coffeehouse and heard Carrie Newcomer. It was a great concert. I had never actually heard her before the concert but several friends recommended her. We had a really good time. But paying the babysitter made me really thankful that we can normally leave the Girl with family for free.
