Flowers From Another Man

As I was trying to get myself together this afternoon to pick up Faithie and her carpool from school, I heard C-Ray come in the back door calling, "Mommy, mommy, have a su-pwise for you." I will (shamefully?) admit that my stomach sank and I held my breath to see what new mess I was going to have to clean up. I then saw the little handful of dandelions he had picked from the yard, accompanied by a very proud-of-himself grin, and Apple in the background, obviously very proud of herself for the role she played in this little scene. My mind quickly flashed back to springtime about two years ago, when I called Mack in a panic after discovering one-year old C-Ray EATING dandelions (see "Things I Have Learned from Having Kids). Now, only two short years later, I get to hear, "Mommy, I bought you fwoyers." My heart smiles as my tiny vase of dandelions slowly wilts on my kichen windowsill.

Our (long) Short List

As many people have been asking me about names for our new addition, I thought I would post the list of what we have it narrowed down to (at least for today). Comments are welcome and we might even listen!

First name:
-Aubrey (will it be confusing with Autumn?)

Middle name:

The first and middle names are obviously still at the "mix and match" stage. So that's it... what do we think?
