Well Saturday stretches before me with no plans, and the kids are occupied with friends and chores, so I should get to sewing! First a couple of stories, though. Drew and I were in Target and the lady behind us at checkout was unloading just TONS of baby food from her buggy. Drew pointed out that she also had a 4-pack of Red Bull. (Hope she's not breastfeeding.)

And yesterday afternoon I took three 9-year-olds to see The Avengers while Dean did yard work with Drew, and you people who have girls might be just a little bit jealous. I bet they don't laugh and giggle endlessly at bodily noises that they make (I would've died of shame if I made these noises in front of somebody's mother). But the conversation was actually about healthy eating at one point. One kid told Lucas that his parents read on the internet that if you drink a Coke every day, you'll have so much stuff around your heart by the time you're 30 years old that it will kill you. He only drinks Coke once a month. And Mountain Dew gives you Mountain Dew Mouth, which is 18 cavities for every Mountain Dew you drink. (Inaccurate, maybe, but effective!)

So I'll leave you with this, as I go vacuum the rug by the back door for the 3rd time this morning because they've trekked in dirt and leaves again. Silhouette Patterns is having a Mother's Day special - buy 3 patterns and get the 4th free! I'm thinking about it - I love that Ann's Top pattern so much - so I've printed out the 6-page catalog to peruse. Have a great weekend!

Cute post. Way back when my daughter was willing to help me do yard work was a full of giggling and screeching over worms. Did anything get done... Of course not...lol The menfolk chased us off with garden snakes and ended up doing what we couldn't do... Planting seeds..lol

Off to visit Silhouette... Thanks for the heads up.
