Mount Mud Heads

Rose has been running around all night with a picture of Mount Rushmore and informing us that “Their heads are stuck in the mud! Oh no! They are so messy and muddy! Their heads are stuck in the mud!”

I never would have thought of it that way, but she’s really not that far off.

FYI, faithful readers, I am now 37.5 weeks pregnant and have a week of false labor under my belt. If blog posts disappear for a couple days, assume I either had the baby or had a really bad false labor night. Little Violet could be here any minute! I’m too tired and uncomfortable these days to get ahead on the blog for an upcoming “maternity leave”. If I disappear for a few days, posts should return, perhaps sporadically for a while, once we get home from the hospital.

Kids Play: Talking States

Alabama and Mississippi are best friends at our house. They go everywhere together and often come to visit my husband and me on the couch.

Their favorite thing to do is introduce each other. Lily likes to make them say “Hi! I’m Alabama and this is my friend Mississippi!” “Hi! I’m Mississippi and this is my friend Alabama!”

It’s gotten worse since we got the book “Scrambled States of America” in which all the states are personified (this book is awesome. If your kids are learning the states, I highly recommend it. It’s hilarious.). Now all the states are talking. I wonder what they’ll say next.
