Brian has decided to add “in the world” to every who, what, where, and why question. For example, “why in the world are you still in bed?” or “how in the world do refrigerators keep food cold?”. Sometimes the hardest part of being a parent is trying not to crack up.


Brian and Marie crashed into each other on their bikes this morning, and Brian ripped his fingernail almost all the way off. It looked really scary and there was a lot of blood. After reassuring them he would not die and it would grow back, we went to the dr. and got him patched up. He’s feeling much better now and acting pretty normal. His finger is bandaged like a huge fat finger and we are not allowed to ride bikes for a few days (in this beautiful weather!)
