My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.

Take Off A Few More Years...

...Of my life that is. Ava decided to scare the crap out of me this morning:

I was taking my rings off beside my night stand in preparation for going to the water park today. I sat Ava on the bed, slid my wedding rings off, held her onesie with my left hand while placing the rings on the table.

The easiest mental image I can give you of how she jumped off my bed (and out of my grasp) is that she looked like a flying squirrel. Flat out, belly flop style flying leap of faith. "I had my hand on her!" I kept saying to myself, as she seamed to float gracefully through the air. And plop! I expected the worst. She'd managed to face plant into a pillow. A perfect 10 point landing. I froze- she's usually pretty tough so I didn't want to scare her into a crying fit.

She sat up and looked at me... and then said, "Hey!".

Sounds as if she is as resilient as her mama! Have fun today!

HEY! I love it! Sounds like you've got a pretty cool kid there.

YIKES! Glad the pillow was in the perfect spot! Hope you didn't lose too many years on that one!

That is exactly why I have to dye my hair now. My kid's crazy stunts have given me a few gray hairs. I'm too young for grays!

Wow, that would scare me too. Good thing the pillow was there.

That's awesome that she actually had a landing pad. Even more awesome that she didn't cry. Doran took a dive off of the sofa last week and it wasn't pretty. He didn't really get hurt, but he landed face-first on the floor and cried so hard. I reacted as calmly as I could but inside I was so scared. What are we going to do with these flying babies?

Woah.... I am going to stick Kris on you (CPS). JUST KIDDING GIRL... I am so glad she is ok... I can't imagine how scary that was. At least you know she has some good acrobatic skills!!!
