Some of you may read tea leaves or tarot cards but in our house we read milk spills. Okay... that'd be ridiculous but.... one morning a few months ago I poured the boys' cereal. When I was putting the milk back in the fridge Joseph got all excited saying we had our own lamb. ???? I turned around and saw what he was talking about. Turns out that I spill milk in shapes. You be the judge:
In keeping with the theme here are some of the
gazillion many sheep pics I took in in Shetland:
This shot was taken on Fair Isle. That's one of the two little churches. They are really close to each other and apparently the islanders use both.
I watched a dog for some friends at church this past weekend. Her name is Charley, she's old, very sweet but she does not like Aggie very much. Charley doesn't get that the young whipper snapper just wants to play... really bad. And Aggie doesn't get why the old woman snaps at her whenever she tries to get to know her better. I think they finally came to an agreement though because I found them somewhat close together for the first time in three days:
Aggie has that innocent "What?" look on her face and Charley just wishes she'd go away.
At bedtime it went something like this:
Joe: Mom... do you put the money under my pillow?
Me: WHAT?! Who told you *that*? I wouldn't say that too loud, you'll offend the Tooth Fairy.
Joe: Okay. I was just asking.
Santa, Tooth Fairy and Easter Bunny all exist in our house until the day I'm pushin' up daisies. If you don't believe, you don't receive. Daniel's known for quite a while but he won't admit it. Not to me anyway. I think he thinks I actually believe or he's just smart enough to not want to ruin my fun. I'm pretty sure he's had a talk with Joe, "Mom still believes in them so don't tell her".
So the Tooth Fairy must have heard Joe because she left him a note telling him how great the tooth looked and how if he brushed really well, he'd get more money because the better the teeth look, the more she pays. Yeesh. She never left me a note. Joe is one lucky kid. He's also easily bought off so I'm hoping the promise of extra cash will get him to brush better.
