Visit from the Easter Bunny

Our neighbor’s. the ones that decided to release their bunnies into “the woods”, bunnies had babies…in our yard. We were standing at the window watching a squirrel and a bunny play.

 “We can’t let the dog out, he’ll hurt the babies”.

“Yeh, but i don’t want them to eat mu garden”

As we were talking about what to do my husband said, “there’s another one!” All of a sudden a person walked by the window. The dog in towe! “When did the kids get outside!

Once we shuttled them back inside, I asked the 4 year old why she let the dog and her sister outside? She said, “We wanted to see a bunny up close and pet him!” 

“Well Snoopy ran them off instead.”

Now I have to find them, catch them, etc…

A Lesson on Lying

When people talk about others or you consider the source. Do they do the things they say they will? Are they truthful? Have you caught them lying (over and over)? A zebra doesn’t change it’s stripes. A lie is intentional not a mistake. You are how you act, not what you say. Likewise, don’t worry when someone lies about you. If people believe them, they either (A) don’t know you or (B) don’t know the person they are believing. Just like that person lied on you, they will lie to them and about them as well. Yes, lying is a sin, don’t get caught up in someone’s lies and gossip. Watch the company you keep. It speaks volumes. 
The Bible says, “keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies.” Psalm 34:13

That moment your kids figure out the dog goes crazy when they ring the doorbell. So they do it again, and again, and again….#wine please. But you know what? No one bothered me for that 5 mins. #charityisblog 

Easter Egg Hunt

Today we decided to head to the Library to attend their Easter Egg Hunt. I took both children to the restroom kicking and screaming, then we patiently waited for the event to start…well as patient as you can with eggs poking through the books.

 Right before it was about to begin, my two year old insisted on going to the restroom. I didn’t have any choice at this point, but to encourage her potty training efforts. I told my four year old to grab as many eggs as she could. As I went to change the two year old, I realized I used the last diaper, and Ladybug was still in the children’s section; so we did the only thing we could do, we joined the crowd (I mean only I’d know she was commando). That is until, they sat down to count eggs at the end and, Chipmunk threw her hands behind her back and sat spread eagle. Even I had forgotten about the absent pullup by this time. At least Ladybug racked up on eggs, I have no idea how she grabbed


 so many alone.  As for Chipmunk, thankfully, a mom I knew passed us and gave me a diaper. I’m sure she could tell I was ready to go, when my 4 year old decided to play my chest like a set of bongos, as we were talking.

 All in all we had a great time! Another day at the library!
