Weekend W's

Woo-hoo: Found a preschool for Nicholas in the fall! {I almost can't believe he'll be 3 in September. Where did the time go?}

Whine: Already did my whine for the week in my 'just thoughts' post. ;D

Wisdom: Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
- Helen Keller

Weakness: Fresh, warm bread with butter. Mmmmm....

Want: A farm with acres and acres of land to take in stray/unwanted animals and give them lots of love.

Web: Earth Hour - We did this last year when my nephew was over. It was so much fun to draw and talk by candlelight for an hour.

Wish: My teenage daughter would quit using the lines 'but everyone else can' or 'but everyone else does' or 'but everyone else's mom let's them'. Sweetie, those lines didn't work for me and they're not going to work for you either! Who knew I'd hear some of the same stuff I said to my parents...

Happy Monday!


  1. Good Ws. I have the same weakness and I share the same wish. I already hear the same things from my almost 8 year old. Why do they start so early?

  2. I'm *so* with you on the weakness. That sounds heavenly right now.

    And the wish too. Oh I'm with you on the wish. Only I think it should probably be called a pipe dream! :)

  3. yay for finding a preschool! and I love fresh bread with butter... but not when the butter is as hard as a rock and you can't spread it. that stinks.

  4. Oh, I love this post idea. Great list!

  5. She is going to say those things just like we are going to say the same things our parents said to us. I swear I can't believe what comes out of my mouth sometimes! I think "oh my gosh...I sound like my mother!!!"

  6. I love that Helen Keller quote! And now I want bread and butter!

    Hope you had a great V Day!
