Here's proof that I am a kid-stuff nerd: I've been looking forward to this show premiering for a month!!! Today, at 11:30AM, one of my most favorite children's book characters comes to life on Nick Jr.: Olivia!
I can't recommend it because I haven't seen it, but it sure looks good. We LOVE Olivia- even if I do have a fundamental issue with people taking every great children's book character and turning them into a cartoon. (Please, leave Russell the Sheep and Fancy Nancy ALONE!!)That aside, I'm hoping this cartoon is as excellent as the books- and that the books keep coming (and are still great quality) in spite of the cartoon!
Today, Sawyer burst into tears of unbridled disappointment when I told him that he could not have broccoli in his macaroni and cheese for dinner. (Dad's not home, I'm not cooking, and more than one pot is against the rules.Actually, I try to even avoid pots, but I was already breaking the rules tonight.)
Seriously, I had to beg him to skip the broccoli just this once. In desperation, he said, "Well, can you put peas in instead?"
Only my child.
For the record, I put broccoli in. Jeez, I just wanted a night off, but somewhere in there I wondered what I was doing asking him not to eat broccoli. Besides, it makes having mac-n-cheese for dinner seem somewhat acceptable.
Chloe ate it plain. Solidarity, you know!
Well, it is inevitable that when I start whining about something that in the grand scheme of life is pretty insignificant, I always am reminded of how good I have it and how immensely blessed we are.
We've been busy here. With what? I don't know. I couldn't even tell you. Just stuff. So, I've been spending less time on the computer, and that's a GOOD thing. However, I can't help but check up on Andy and Rebecca, and if you haven't seen the pictures of Owen in his Mama's arms, well, you really need to get right over there to check it out. It took my breath away.
Want to see the miracle of adoption for yourself? Follow along as Andy and Rebecca (the super-talented mom who designed my blog) head to China to meet their son, Owen and bring him home! Pray that they have a safe trip, that Owen's heart is prepared for the changes he will be going through over the next couple of weeks, and that the transition will go as smoothly as it possibly can!
