Ha ha ha -- April, you're so funny. Sometimes the phase never passes. . .

So delighted to see you in blogland again. Those pictures of the daddy daughter date are about the cutest thing I've ever seen!

And I was so sorry to hear about your grandma. It's wonderful that you got to spend so much time with her while she was here. That's a rare gift, and one that my kids haven't really had enough of.

I will give you what the eye has not seen, and what the ear has not heard, and what the hand has not touched, and what has not arisen in the heart of man.

"mom, you can go with my teacher and i'll stay home with japie and evan. daddy can go to work, and i'll be the mommy" -lily, in response to learning that she would be going to preschool next year instead of this year.

"mom, if you don't get rid of that smell soon, you're going to have to buy a new car." -gracie when it took me a couple of days to clean out my car after returning from a road trip.

"mommy, they have dress-ups for you!" -lily while walking by the prom dress section at macy's.

"i said the prayer "last"-erday." -lily's replacement word for "yesterday."
