Rerun’s Buddies


”Mom, take a picture of my plush toys and share it with everyone.”

Okay, then.

This Is My Child


Yes, this one is most definitely mine.

This is how I found Thumper last Thursday morning when I got up.  His sister had already left for school, and there he was, sitting tucked in on the couch, staring intently at the title page of my new annotated copy of Persuasion.

When he saw me, he said, confidently, “War and Peace!”

Um, no.

He thinks he is Charlie Brown in The Peanuts Movie.

War and Peace would be a LOT bigger than Persuasion.

It’s okay, Thumper.  You’re still adorable.

Flashback Friday


Still no snow.  This has filled the boys with aggravation and concern.  Especially when they see their cousins in Canada getting snow.  (And subzero temperatures, but they tend to forget that part.)

Some of these old snow pictures are awfully cute.

Rerun was almost two, and it was so cold that he actually created a snowball collection.

And they stayed put for a while.

Thumper, however, probably is just fine with no snow.  He believes in being warm and cozy at all times.  Don’t tell his brothers.

Art of the Week – Life


Tad’s art class has just started back up after taking a break over the holidays, but I haven’t seen anything come home yet but sketches.  So, I thought I would share this drawing, which is actually from his school sketchbook.

Assignment: “draw your idea of life.”

So open to interpretation, and this is what Tad went with:

I think he might have drawn a little inspiration from WALL-E, but it still turned out great!
