Luna remarked, "You know what ... delicious stuff and fun to do stuff is expensive."
I feel like she has just learned one of life's most important lessons. Oh yeah, I totally rock at this parenting thing.
Then Wolfie started talking about how some people say, "That's so 80's..." and I have to admit here, I don't know what people Wolfie hangs out with who say that, but whatever.
He continued by recalling how I told him about my first video game system, the Atari, and since that was in the 80's it's been 30 years since video game systems have evolved from the Atari to the WiiU. And then he said, "I can't believe how much the human world can advance in only 30 years."
For fun, we should make a technology time capsule dated 2015 and I should give this to Wolfie on his 39th birthday. For Luna, we should put a price sticker on everything in the time capsule.
And in case you were wondering...we did save some pizza for Tulip and Papa.

I'm no longer nursing, but if you'd like to know my stats they are: 3 children for a grand total of 84 months, a few of those months were tandem nursing the girls.
This morning I overheard the girls playing with their animals and I could tell by their dialogue that nursing babies was past of the game.
I snuck up on them to take this picture. I wish I would have recorded them because the animals were "saying" things like:
Can I have some milk?
Here, have some milk.
Oh, I don't have anymore milk. Try my husband's.
As you can see in the picture, there is some inter-species nursing going on. It seems that between that, and the fact that my 5-year-old thinks that animal husbands can also provide milk, I need to set them straight.
But in the meantime I'll just enjoy my daughter's innocent, yet spot on, insight that mammal mothers nurse their babies.

And you might find this list in his room on his desk:
Evil Plan to Get to School on Time
1. eat breakfast
2. get lunch
3. turn off night light
4. get dressed
5. comb hair
6. brush teeth
8. go to school
9. get good grades and stuff at math
10. become brilliant and make a super weapon
And you'll probably save this list because, you know, when he turns 10 his handwriting might look different.

Actually, whatever trepidation I thought Tulip might have was nonexistent. I, on the other hand, had great pause as to whether my daughter who only just finished Kindergarten was ready to sleep in another house...without ME. But the real drama was not from Tulip's mama, but from her baby sister. Oh my but was Luna sad that Tulip was leaving the house at 4:00 in the afternoon and wouldn't be coming home that night. She started weeping on the couch as Tulip packed her backpack.
"You know, Luna is really sad that you won't be sleeping in your room tonight," I told her and okay maybe I was projecting a little bit.
"Oh..." Tulip said knowingly and finished packing her outfit for the next day. She went to find her sister and offer her some solace. "Luna, what if we each draw a picture for each other and we can tuck them under our pillows tonight." Total brilliance.
Problem solved except that mama now had a fresh batch of tears welling up in the corner of her eyes.
