D.I. and Donuts

As a stay at home mom, I have to get out of the house.

I know all mothers would agree with that statement, but I feel like I am particularly prone to that "we gotta get outta here" feeling. Today's "gotta get outta here" adventure was to the thrift store for books and donuts on the way home. Jansen was so cute at D.I. He just kept commenting about how he couldn't believe people would give away the books he had chosen. I have been tormented (in a good way, ha) all day with questions   and comments about light years, number of people sent to space from each country, UFOs, and the like.

Natalie's reading gets a little better each day. She can sound out words with short vowel sounds and surprises me all the time when she figures out words like "look," "she," and "food." She chose Diego and Clifford books.

Emmy just used her hand to scrape off all the frosting and sprinkles. I totally finished off her naked donut.

I have the same problem, Jess. The "gotta get out" feeling. I go sooo crazy! But, the comments I get out here from random people when I do take my 4 kids out. Geesh! So cute that you took your kids to get some books though. Good idea.
