I can't tell you how in a house with mostly nonverbal kids how wonderful it is to hear shout outs of "you're a good Mommy!" 

I could listen to that all day. 

You can too if you buy your kid the doll that says it..... 

One push of her little hand and all your efforts in being that good mommy will be reinforced by a sweet little canned voice. 

If you push the hand in multiple succession you can hear the emphatic way in which she declares you a good mommy too. 

Maybe pick yourself one up for this coming Mothers Day.....

The nine yr old does not eat candy she does however like to hunt for easter eggs. She has noticed that I keep entering her room to unload the plastic egg contents into my pocket.  

"you should give some of that candy to the kids" she says.

Hmmm....there's an idea. Not one I will consider but it is an idea
What are the chances I will run into someone wanting to play Let's Make a Deal and wants to pay me a large sum of money if I have plum sauce and swim goggles in my purse?

Words shouted upon awakening repeatedly times ten "present!!" And "flowers!!"  She must have some have some high hopes for the day

Things I learned tonight

1) I am over movie popcorn

2) The story of Eddie the Eagle is both sad and inspiring and that
the determination and dedication against all odds of this man
are such to emulated 

3) If Hugh Jackman were my coach I too would try to learn to ski
jump
If I was into steer wrestling...which I am not....I would totally rock it if my mornings are any indication.
