Sage Advice

My mom, for the first time in her life, is feeling a little overweight lately. She made a comment about wanting to "lose her belly" to Pippi, who looked at her in that very earnest way that only a five-year-old can pull off and said, " Oh no, Kat-Kat, I don't think you should. I like you just the way you are. Besides, if you lose your belly, where will I give you pats?" How can you argue with that logic?
By the way, Kat-Kat is the pet name that my kids use instead of calling my mom "Grandma". Long story:)

Awww...that's too cute!! So, sorry everyone that I didn't put a recipe up. My life's been a little nuts and poor Daniel had the WORST 1st birthday in the history of the planet today. We won't go into it, but lets just say that if you enjoy packing up an entire "house" we live in an apartment right now, but that doesn't mean we don't have much stuff!) and cleaning said apartment in 12 hours or less with your husband gone for 2+ hours leaving you with 3 kids, all under age 6, and still tons of packing/cleaning to do) then it was a GREAT birthday for Daniel ;) He just loved the ignoring him part, and sticking him in his highchair to keep him out of our way. Poor little guy! Now we're in a hotel and have 4 DAYS of driving ahead of us. Fun stuff! Anwyay, I will post when life settles down, sorry for being a loser!

That is so sweet! You should post the kat kat story on your family blog, I'd love to read it... unless you already did as I haven't been there yet since I'm back from out of town.
