Imagine for a moment with me that while Mark was snoozing away in his bed, during nap time, something bad happened to his window shade. Now imagine, during the same nap time, there was a great bumping and thumping heard by the parents on the first floor. Think elephants, lions, tigers, bears and maybe whales. Got that? Good. Now imagine upon entering Mark's room at the conclusion of nap time Mark says this statement to his mother. "Mom, my shade broke. But my animals are working on it. They'll have it fixed in no time." Now imagine how hard it was to keep a smile off my face when I walked in and saw not less than fifty (yes, there are that many of them) elephants, lions, tigers, bears and whales gathered in a circle all facing the window.
How am I supposed to discipline a little boy who makes me laugh all day? I can't. I just can't.

For the record, they couldn't fix it. I did though.

LOOK! I found summer.

I was taking a little walk in the snow. It was just peeking up waiting for me to find it.So you didn't believe that. What was it? The part about it peeking up through the snow or the part about me walking in the snow. Right. Right. Equally unbelievable. Fine. I bought summer at the grocery store. I couldn't take it anymore. All this white. I needed some color. Something. Anything to bring a little life.

The reason Daisy thinks we got them

All those months of neglect early on are finally starting to pay off.
