milan and i made a delicious teriyaki catfish dinner 2 nights ago.

just as we were sitting down to eat -

micah "you know why it's dark out, mommy?"
me "why?"
micah "cuz it take too long makin' dinner. that's why. cuz makin dinner was a long time."


then last night we had grilled portobello's over salad which she won't touch so we made her favorite - potstickers. there was one left so she grabbed it -

micah "but this one has sauce on it - i no like sauce." (insert big 3-yr-old pout signifying the end of the world as we know it.)
milan "well, it's already on there so there's nothing we can do about it."
micah "oh." ... "i like the sauce, milan"

walk for breast cancer

I am participating next month in a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. This affects me very close to home as there are women in my family who have fought, survived, perished and currently fight agaisnt Breast Cancer.

Please help me reach my goal of $1000 by visiting my webpage.


my little angel

lately micah has been too "scared" to go to sleep at night. frankly, i think she's full of it. i think, her friend at school has mentioned being "scared" of things like monsters outside the window and the darkness. but, i humor her "fears" anyway.

it's hot at night (or at least up until 2 nights ago) but she keeps telling us that she's afraid of the fan and that it will blow all the monsters in. i'm not turning it off because she'll over heat and sweat lakes into the sheets. so, the other night i scrounged and scrounged for "something" - hoping when i saw it i would just know. you know?

well, i found it. a small, stained glass angel. my mother had bought it in the hospital when micah was born. it's pink and she is holding a small silver rag doll and on her chest it reads "daughter". i put the angel on micah's dresser where she could see it and told her it would protect her.

this morning, she says to me, "mommy, i foun my angel an she makes me safe."
