More Love

While Dave was applying deodorant this morning lamenting his lack of shower,  Benton quipped, "I love your armpits, Daddy"

New Look

After living with gross chairs for months (maybe even a year), we decided to paint them.  The kids picked out colors for their chairs.  Everyone has been involved in the process.  It is taking  a bit longer than expected, but soon I will have photos to share of our new chairs.

Rites of Passage

We attended the Bar Mitvah of a friend this weekend.  Eamon, Aine and Benton did not attend the ceremony, but they did participate in the party later.  We discussed that a Bar Mitvah is a ceremony/celebration of a child becoming a more active participant in their religion.  We discussed they were taking a more adult role and accepting more responsibilities.

Upon hearing this, Aine quipped: "Since he is an adult, did he get a family?"

In case there was a doubt

Overheard this morning while we were waking up in bed,


B (uttered before his eyes were even open): Take the bananas out of my bowl.  I HATE them!
