    ANOTHER GREAT MOMMY MOMENT...
    My son picked out the clothes he wanted to wear to school today. The shirt, a theme shirt, had chinese characters on it above the picture of people on it. He says, "Mommy, look. Power Rangers are Chinese Noodle People." I couldn't resist posting it. I love these moments. Both children cracked me up this morning. My daughter is becoming so much like her mother. She stayed up late last night reading a book she just couldn't put down. Then needing and enjoying her sleep so much she overslept this morning. Coming out into the living room she exclaims, "Why'd you let me sleep so late?!" As if I, the person who loves sleep so much, would deny another the opportunity to relish a few extra moments of slumber.

    Now we are watching the news about children raising money for the tsunami victims. My daughter just came back from her room with her six dollars from helping out over her vacation with various things around the house. She said, "If other kids are giving their money, then I'm going to give mine too." Now my son is getting his piggy bank. God. What greater vindication does a parent need to know they are doing right by their children when their children want to do right by those less fortunate. I have to go...my eyes are tearing up.

You're all very fortunate to have each other.

There is really nothing like children to get you all teary eyed. My two lovely daughters are constantly doing it to me too. I just found your site and so far I like it. Look forward to reading more. -jamraiven

By the way, how old are your children? Sounds like your son is 4 1/2. Mine are 4 1/2 and 2 1/2.

I'm glad to see you. My son is about to turn 5 in February. My daughter turns 8 in March. They are amazing to me...though I do admit to having cabin fever with them this morning with the snow keeping us inside and my having to work. I think a lull is coming and we can get outside to enjoy the fluffy white stuff.

I like some of the features on your blog. Pretty cool. Should I call you Ailyn?

Sure, Ailyn is fine - my blog/cyber name. I'm enjoying finding new features for my site. But then again, I'm a computer guy. I'm lucky enought to get to work from home today (and get paid that is). Outside is supposedly very icy and suppose to rain, so you should get out there quick and enjoy the time with your kids. Have fun.
