I know that my thoughts are instantly defensive, and that if this person HAD confronted me, we probably would have had an argument about drilling in ANWAR or the wheat shortage due to all the farmers grown corn for ethanol! I can get a little heated about politics and "environmental issues."
I realize that I'm trying to defend my position, but here is food for thought...

Have you ever?? .....
a. thought a movie that you saw a really really long time ago was SOOOO GOOD and then saw it again and thought "what was I thinking?"
b. sang along with old tunes from your parents generation while thinking, "how do I know every word to this song?"
c. felt a little awkard about watching a movie that you boasted was so great, while the person seeing it for the first time looks like their being tortured?
okay... so secretly I totally enjoyed the walk down memory lane. i kept thinking of American Idol and if Mr. Neil Diamond were on that show, he'd win for sure! what a voice?!?! and i even love his newer album, with it's ballad-like quality.
thanks mom, for brainwashing me as a child with good music!

we ventured across the street to the park today to enjoy one of the first warmer days of the year. as we were walking through the park, Cooper runs to the flag pole and yells "oh the flag! I LOVE the flag!" and he threw his arms around the base of the pole. some of you may remember my post about the pledge of allegiance a while back.... but i will repeat my thoughts from that day, in that, i'm grateful that my child is in a place where he can learn to appreciate the flag, his country, and his freedom.
also.... I made this yummy dessert... totally shouldn't have... after one piece I felt like I ate a brick! but hey! a cheesecake baked on top of brownies with caramel sauce??!? how could i resist? just looking at the picture makes me remember that tummy ache! and it reminds me that that cake ended up somewhere between my knees and waist.

What I look like this week.....
My FAVORITE book this week.....
i should have listened to mommy when she told me that those weren't stairs.
mom and dad understand me when i say, "piggy pantate.... piggy pantate.... piggy pantate".... I have a hard time holding myself together if i cant find my pig book, but mommy seems to always know where it is.
my brother Cooper is sick today and home from school....
my main struggle right now is convincing all those around me that everything within eyeshot is MINE.
i am embracing my second year with gusto. i'm so smart and can do anything that my big brother Cooper can do.
