it's BOX ELDER BUG season!!!

J arrived home from school
before the rest of the children today.

a bit of mommy alone time on the agenda

The weather is perfect and so we
hung outside a bit...

kids are so amazing
they always notice the
LITTLE big THINGS in life!

Like the Crocus in bloom!
Happy early Spring Day!


...and "MOM, ITS BOX ELDER BUG SEASON!!!"
[i would have to say this is MUCH more
exciting than MARCH MADNESS!]


..."and the Bumble Bees are back to make us some honey!"


i am hanging on to his youth,
so i don't lose mine!

*screaming and hopping on the couch* WHAT the heck, I would DIE if I had bugs like that anywhere near me!! Oh man I though the ladybugs were bad!

aaah, this is how we get to experience youth a second time over...

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
