Princess cried so hard about selling the Jeep. She wanted LK to tell the man that he could only have it for five days and then he had to bring it back. She is always emotional about things going away. She cried when we traded in my minivan. She doesn't want to give away her old clothes that don't fit.
At least her Daddy is coming back. We're not giving him away or selling him or trading him in. Maybe it won't be so bad. Still, I am so not looking forward to this conversation. I can't decide when to talk to her.
We're having a July 4th party as last get together with our close friends before LK leaves. I think we should tell her before then, but how soon? Is there ever a good time to tell her something like this?

The Lizard King is an amazing father. He is the epitome of "don't judge a book by it's cover". At a BBQ yesterday two friends told me that they decided that my husband is...hmmm....I can't remember the exact words (as you know I forget stuff)...but they pretty much said that he is pretty awesome. You've got this tattooed tough guy exterior, who is an Attachment Parenting, organic eating, sustainable living, amazing husband and all around great guy. It took me a lohohohong time to find him, but he was so completely worth the wait.
I asked Princess, "Why is your Daddy a good daddy?" Her response, "He plays with me a lot." Which is so true.
He spends a good deal of his limited home time playing with Princess. He lets Princess "do" his hair with all sorts of clips and accessories in it. He plays Princess Wii. He gets down on the floor and plays all the creative imagination games. He plays board games. He lets her "help" him in everything he does.
We are trying to find ways that he can still play with her from Afghanistan and so far, we're coming up with some pretty good ideas.

Meet Sophia Rose.
Sophia Rose is a smart little pup. They say she is around 1 year. She has already learned to sit and lay down...well, in one particular spot. We are working on house training as well as other commands.
This Wishing Tree really seems to work. Several of my wishes have come true, I am shocked to say. I just wish I had been a little more specific in my wishes. Again, you'll have to stay tuned to find out the details. You may have to wait a little longer for this one.
Have a beautiful weekend!

We cut our ribbon, wrote our wishes on the ribbon and sewed little bells to the ends (just like over at 5 Orange Potatoes). Then, we tied our wishes to the monkey tree.

She looks cute, but compared to the costume that Violet sported over at Heathen Family Revival for her recital this one isn't quite up to par.

I also learned that my lettuce was ready.
I also learned that it is yummy!
