Okay.  Get ready.  This is going to be random.  As if you can't tell by the title.  Obviously I don't have one thing in particular to say.

Today a lamp broke.  When I asked Benjamin what happened, he said, "I was launching myself off of the table."  
No need to go any further.  Thanks buddy.  I am glad you are into aerodynamics.  

Luke is the shining star this week.  His teacher works so hard at making the children feel important. She asks them questions on a piece of paper you fill out with your mom and dad.
Question: "What is your favorite Bible verse?"

Luke stated quickly, "Matthew 21:16."
(I was puzzled.  Lori, I hadn't gotten to this one yet. ;) Had to look it up.)

"Do you not hear what these children are saying?" they asked him.
"Yes," replied Jesus, "have you never read,
"From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise'?"

I asked him if he heard this verse in class.  He said no.  He had never heard it before, but he just knew it was his favorite verse.

David is into poop painting.  I guess it might be another form of finger painting.  Gross.  
I am not into this type of art.  He is 2 1/2 and I know from two other little boys, the longer you wait to potty train, the easier it can be.  So, I might give it a try or I might not.  He is not happy in a poopy diaper.  I wouldn't be either.  I have to get it off of him so quick or the painting starts.  You get my drift.  What would you do?

So there you have it in a nutshell.  My life:  Children launching and poop painting.  Ain't this the good life!

Oh yeah, for you folks that have asked about the cake.  It turned out great!!!!  I will post pictures as soon as I find the cord to download them.  We had a wonderful time celebrating Luke.

Loving the update...sorry about the "painting"...I had a "poop hoeing" incident with Carson. Let's just say, it was gross, and leave it at that! :)

Duct tape on diapers is quite redneck I guess, but that is what we did. Make sure it isn't too tight and leave a tab for removing, in the back. I try to give them time to do their business before bed and listen on the monitor for when they wake and try to beat them to the punch. I know what you are going through sister. Even Miss Laura Ann had her time with duct tape for a while. I hope that will stay past tense! Sometimes I think that God was teaching me that life isn't always pretty or clean.
