Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

Life with a two year old...

has it's ups and downs, to say the least. But Sage seems to have a charm and personality that is always able to put a smile on your face.

About every other day, she will say to me "I was in your belly. They cut me out." I don't even remember telling her this. I think maybe Regan did? It always makes me laugh, mostly because when she says it, it is completely out of the blue and off-topic from our current conversation or activity.

This week, she wants to be my big helper with the groceries. The challenge lies in finding bags that are light enough and safe in the hands of a two year old. Thursdays haul had the perfect items, four packages of toilet paper. Carried one at a time into the house, they bought me enough time to get the rest of the bags in without 'help'. Once I was finished, I went into the pantry to find out what, exactly, she was doing with her loot. I laughed out loud when I found that she had removed a large basket of coffee and stuff from the bottom shelf and made room for 3 of her four packages. She was so proud!

Dinner time is always a mixed bag, as you never know what kind of eating mood the girls are going to be in. Wednesday, Sage was not in the eating mood, which is nothing new. She did provide some comic relief, though, when she pulled the saran wrap from the kitchen drawer, brought it to the table and said 'wrap it up mommy!'. (Can you tell we have done this routine a time or two??)
