My Big Kid

She had a tough day today.  It was nearly 90 but still my kids have snotty noses.  Chase, in particular, seems to be fighting something off.  There was a lot of whining today.  Sadly I’m to blame for a lot of it.  Sometimes I listen to what’s going on around here and I feel bad for Ben.  Don’t get me wrong.  He can whine right along with the rest of us.  He didn’t earn the nickname delicate genius for nothing after all.  But when he wines it doesn’t sound quite as whiny as when me and Chase are going at it.  I have to do something about that.  It’s kind of terrible.  

The girls are totally ready for summer and I’m glad to get a second year out of last summer’s clothes!  We played outside all afternoon and it was pretty great.  I think it’s time for me to do the summer equivalent of winterizing myself.  Summerizing?

I remember taking this picture this afternoon but not the looks they were giving each other at that moment.  I wonder what was going on here?  I’m never in on their jokes.
