So I was in the grocery store bathroom with both the kids today. This lady walks in and asks me if they are twins! I kinda start laughing like she made a joke but when I look at her she is dead serious, waiting for me to answer. I tell her no and don't point out the obvious 3 year difference between them. Then she proceeds to ask me if they are both mine. Sure, in this day and age it's possible that they couldn't be mine but didn't she just assume they were twins? I guess I could have been their nanny.

Well, It made me laugh so I thought I'd share.

Ah, sweet Cade. What a nice guy he is!

Finding a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts at the grocery store. Geez, I thought I was going to have to buy store brand! You don't think they were brought in for the employees, do you? Of course, I did ring them on the self check isle. An employee did put a paid sticker on the box since it was too large to go in a bag. All I have to say for myself is "they were really really good.

Send a message via MSN to crewsk
I subbed in a 4th grade class today & was told by another teacher that a boy in the class was having a hard time because his mom is getting married tomorrow. She said if I needed any help with him to come get her. For about the first 30 minutes of class this morning I watched this child sit at his desk & read book after book. He never smiled, spoke to anyone, or anything. It broke my heart to see the sadness in his eyes. When he would look up, I made it a point to smile at him. Half way through the day, he smiled back. Well, at the end of the day, he came up beside me & hugged me. I asked him what the hug was for & he said, "Just for smiling at me, it made my day better." Those simple words were enough to bring tears to my eyes. It reminded me that sometimes something as simple as a smile can make someone's day.

Callum's new trick

While I was sitting at the table today, Callum was walking around. He came over to me saying "hug, hug," and rested his head on my knee. He's been doing it all afternoon. Oh, it melts my heart.
