Madi is suddenly becoming wise.

She came to snuggle with me after her nap.

Me: I love you, Madeline. You're a good girl and a kind girl and a smart girl.
Her: hmmm. Except sometimes I'm not.

True. True.

She then promptly spilled a full glass of water and wanted me to photograph the two squares of toilet paper she brought to clean it up.

Nothin' but awesome. Truly.

Princesses Cheer for Tigers

The girls played together all day. As I worked in the kitchen, they passed me and went upstairs. They were relatively quiet up there, which is surprising given that they were preparing something that was the opposite of quiet. In about ten minutes they came down, and it was immediately apparent that whatever was coming should be filmed.

The original "cheer," followed by the whispered counting and the follow up cheer is how this was performed each time they presented it. Which means it was a plan. Which cracks me up.

Husband, Dad, Arsenal Fan

Most of you know that my husband, weirdly enough, started an Arsenal fan club here in Memphis. The group--the Memphis Gooners--are recognized by the official Arsenal web page, and listed there so that poor wandering Arsenal fans can find their ilk when in Memphis.

Check out the page to see some of his endearingly-serious-about-this writing as well as a couple pics of the Lareau bambinas.
