Lucy said she saw Isaac at the park tonight…”But I didn’t hug him.” 


So NOT Ready For This

March 26, 2007

Lucy asked if Junior, the neighbor boy, could come over and play.  They were playing in her bedroom…jumping and rolling off the bed.  I kept looking in on them.  Then I found Lucy on top of Junior with her legs around him, his hands on her butt.  I asked her what they were doing and she said “Hugging”.  I told her no hugging on the bed.  “Why?”  So I took her to the Living Room and told her that boys and girls are not allowed to hug on beds.  “Ok Mommy.” 

 They went back into her room.  I walked in to check on them again and Lucy looked up at me and said, “I told him to hug a stuffed animal.”

L – Mommy, my make-up doesn’t smell.  Why does yours.

K – It doesn’t smell.

L – Smell the bottle mommy. 

K – It doesn’t smell bad, it just smells like make-up.

L – Smell the air.  It stinks.

Breaking the Rules

March 24, 2007

All 4 of my kids in diapers are breaking the rules today.  I’m trying to implement a 1-dirty-diaper-a-day rule.  Gavin’s up to 4, Lincoln’s up to 3, Vaughn and Gracie are at 2.  What’s up??!!  🙂

In a Pig’s Spleen

March 24, 2007

What can you get from touching a pig’s spleen??  Apparently you can predict the weather.  This is Gus Wickstrom’s prediction for the Quad City area. 


March will be quite mild
1st – 6th will be in the low 30s
9th – 12th will have 4 – 6 inches of snow
13th – 15th will have heavy winds
29th – 31st will be cold (around 15 – 20 degrees)


3rd – 10th will be warm (in the 40s)
11th – 15th will have wind & snow–“a covering” (possibly rain)
18th – 22nd will have Rain Showers
23rd – 30th will be warm & sunny

April 22nd is our “Appreciation Barbeque”, so I’m hoping it doesn’t really rain!!!  Ugh!

Lucy’s Quote of the Day

Lincoln was in his high chair.  Lucy was making a pizza. 
I hid from Lincoln and shouted, “BOO”! 
Lucy shouts, “You scared the crap out of him!”

If you’re into garage saling…and you have kids…you’ll definitely want to come to the QCMOTC Rummage Sale (Quad City Mothers of Twins Club).  It’s Saturday April 14th from 8 am to 2 pm at St. John’s Lutheran Church – 1450 30th Avenue in East Moline.  Yes, a bit of a drive.  No, I’ve never been to one.  But there will be at least 21 mom’s of multiples selling their stuff.  Everything from infant to adult clothing, baby equipment, toys, housewares and more.  Admission is 50 cents, kids are free.   For more information, go to
