Love and Stuffs

And this is just one of the exchanges we had today:

Me (to Mr. O): I'm ready to go when you are, Honey.

Ellie: Mom, is Honey a boy name?

Me: No.

Ellie: Then why are you calling dad Honey?

Me: Well, that's what people say to people they love, that's why I sometimes call you honey, too.

Ellie (quiet for a moment, then with surprise):Oh. You love him?

I've been inspired by the annual list Christina at My Topography makes (lower sidebar) and am in the middle of compiling my own 40 ways to celebrate 40. Do you have any suggestions for me? What sorts of things would be on your list?

I'm sure my kids wonder if I LOVE John on a daily basis--ha ha! Do you snowboard? I took a lesson when I turned 40... hilarious!

I love it when kids are surprised their parents love each other!

She is SO funny.

Rose likes to taunt Dean and me that we love each other; she seems to think we'll be as horrified by that accusation as if we were first-graders with a secret crush.

I am sure you could not properly turn 40 without seeing the 40 Famous Sights of Portland, Oregon (and Coast)? I'll even change the pillows!

That is adorable! And really funny.

I called Sissy 'baby' the other day and was promptly corrected. I also can't call her 'angel' since that is what her mommy is. Kids are so funny!

What to do for the big 4 - 0??

Something completley wild and crazy that you will never do again!

M-cat - wild and crazy? You mean like like drinking full sugar Dr. Pepper?
