Stuff I'm Loving

1. That the 16-year-old girl...

...asked me to put her A+ geometry test on the fridge...

2. That the 9-year-old girl begs me to play the piano and sing soprano while she sings alto...

3. That the twins can find Emmitt Smith in a 200-page NFL Greatest Plays book, and that they call him "Eh-Meh-MehhhhhhHHHHT!"

4. That Baby Hippo can navigate stairs...

5. That there's an amazing boy in our lives, like a son to us, who loves kids and isn't afraid to show it...

6. That I'm finally starting to like football, which is great, since I have 7 boys and they all have played or will play every fall...

7. John's homemade bread...

8. That the 22-year-old girl was accepted into the college to which she applied, and that she still calls me Mommy...

9. That after a year, the 19-year-old boy is still loving his mission, and that he ends all of his letters with "LOVEYOUBYE!"...

10. That the 11-year-old boy is devouring Harry Potter...

11. That the 16-year-old girl, upon seeing her 15-year-old brother doing homework in the middle of the kitchen with the 4 Five and Under running around the island like banshees, and the 11-year-old boy whistling and me clanking dishes, tenderly rubbed his hair and said, "15-year-old boy, why don't you go to your room to do your homework? Wouldn't it be more peaceful? You could do it in my room, if you wanted."...

12. That the 5-year-old boy is learning to read in English and Spanish at the same time...

13. Wearing tennis shoes, ankle socks, a skirt and an apron to do housework in... (By the way, don't forget about the Flirty Apron giveaway!)

13. That a friend told me my massages are "delicious"...

What are you loving?

Having my in-laws visit for three weeks.
Not being sick anymore.
Having the most amazing husband I could ask for.
The ability to go back to school.
My wonderful life.
The interwebs.
Blogs.
My aloof standoffish but gotta love 'em kitties.
