Parenting Wins: Arthur is telling his swim coach all about the cookie he had for breakfast and the PG-13 movie he watched. And doing an awesome job learning to swim.

Bath Time: I’m not sure what is happening in the bath, but it’s extremely loud, Arthur keeps fake crying, and Sienna keeps yelling “for humanity!” and “not in my town!”

Date Afternoon: For Valentine’s Day, John and I used a Seasons52 gift card we got at Christmas. We had yummy food and tiny little desserts, then walked around SouthCoast looking at stuff we would never buy.

Room Parent 201: I recently said “room parent in 4th grade is easy” but apparently I’ve been paired with a flaky person as the actual room parent so I have to do all the room parenting stuff, but I have to do it last minute and with no credit. So annoying. This is the third time this has happened to me (last year I insisted on being the only room parent, and did everything myself and it was great).

Penguins: Sienna just launched into a scientific lecture about penguins, except she was saying “pain ones” and I seriously didn’t know what she was talking about for a minute.

Pet vs. Baby: Maggie has started saying “we should get a pet!” Every time she sees an animal. Arthur has begun countering my “no” with “we should get a baby then!”
