1 - I'm going through a little Matchbox Twenty phase right now. It's fun.
2 - My latest at Ignitum Today: Pride and Postpartum Depression.
3 - Today we had beautiful fall weather and so the kids and I went to the park after Mass. Then, during quiet time, I painted my nails a dark purple. The boys' birthday party is tomorrow otherwise I would have gotten out the fall decorations.
4 - Speaking of fallish things... I'm helping organize the All Hallow's Eve party at my parish. I'm really trying to create something that has structure for the kids and is a good marriage of the secular Halloween and the Catholic All Hallow's Eve. I'm excited for the decorations, games, sneaky they-don't-know-they're-learning-because-it's-fun catechizing, and the costumes. I've started a Pinterest board and I'll be happily adding to it in the coming weeks. Here's a sneak peak:
pretzel sticks + mini marshmallows + white chocolate = RELICS! Get it?!
5 - Honestly, I started these 7QT last week and never got the chance to finish them... until a week later...
6 - And now poor James is sick and I'm exhausted and Travis is going out of town tomorrow for his Masters class. So I got nothing...
7 - Except for this story:
Lydia: Mommy, does Joseph drink regular milk or soy milk?
Me: Actually, he drinks human breastmilk, which is neither regular (2%) milk nor soy milk.
Lydia: What do you mean?
Me: Well, regular milk is actually cow's milk, it comes from a cow. Soy milk is made from the soybeans that grown in the fields around us. But Joseph drinks milk from my breast - not from cows or soybeans but human breastmilk.
Lydia: Ummmm... okay... So does Joseph drink regular milk or soy milk?
Me: He drinks regular milk.
