Once upon a time .... there was a blog.

Once upon a time there was a blog. It was written by a mom late at night in the quiet hours after bedtime.  It was fun. Then people started commenting and she realized people were actually READING the blog.  And then it wasn't fun.  Then it was work.  And stressful.  And worrisome.  And then there was a blog coma for a year.  But then a strange thing happened.  The mom realized she missed her blog.  And so she started writing again in the quiet hours after bedtime. The end.

Five Year Old Wisdom

"I can't clean up or I'll get my germs all over the toy room."
~Emma, milking her strep throat diagnosis

Emma: "Can dragons be pink?"

Me: "Yeah, sure."
Emma: "No, they can't!"
Me: "Why not?"
Emma: (rolls eyes) "Because pink dragons don't exist!"

Emma:  "Its not OK to kiss at school."
Dad:  "No, no kissing allowed at school."
Emma:  "But, it is OK to kiss at home ... and at the mall."
Dad:  "No, no kissing at the mall either."
Emma:  "Yes!  I've seen people kissing at the mall!"
