Dips and a Winner!

Wyatt: Hey, what are we having for dinner?

Dad: French Dips

Wyatt: What kind of dips are those?

Dad: The French kind.

Wyatt: Oh, right. Good!

Runs off to cause some kind of trouble, probably involving a balloon.

Mom: You should have told him the Mexican kind. (snicker)


We have a winner for the Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters book! I know, that was awfully cruel to make you wait the whole weekend as I recovered from surgery (it went really well by the way and thank you for all your kind wishes, I'm sure they had something to do with it!).

Perhaps the recipe for a successful surgical outcome should always include 4 parts Internet love, 3 parts caring husband, 2 parts supportive grandparents who take the children and 1 part hot doctor.

Anyway, now that that's all taken care of . . .

Congratulations Manic Mom, email me with your mailing address and I'll ship your book to you right away, along with a little something extra!

Thank you everyone for leaving such personal and heartfelt comments on that post. I think the more we know, as mothers (parents), the better when it comes to our children and the future of their self-esteem.

A French if that makes all the sense in the world. Kids are so adorable!

I love how kids can be so easily satisfied with an answer. Well, except maybe when they ask where babies come from. :)

We were having Mexican the other night at a restaurant and my 6 year old noticed the Spanish programming on the TV and asked what language they were speaking. We said Spanish. Then she says, "Are they Chinese?" Yeah....

Thank You so Much!!!! I never win anything. I can't wait to tell my husband.
Self- esteem is a treasure worth protecting. It takes a village to raise a child. But you need to be carful what village you have doing the watching.
Thanks again Carrie!!!!
