food for thought

 i made my favorite* chocolate cookies this week for a dinner we had with ty's cousin jack. only problem is they don't last more than a day. ( i say these are my favorite- but i've honestly never tried another recipe. please share if you have a good one)
rodney's favorite new chew toy? an orange rind. something about it he is in love with. it must feel fantastic on those budding ivories or something. whatever it is, it's kind of weird.

i just read this article on katie's blog.  if you are a mother, read it.  it captures my thoughts perfectly. we have a lot of friends and family having their first kids, and/or always asking me, "how do you do 4 kids? i can't even do {one, two, three}!"  and my response? you just do it.  and would i ever want to be a first time mom again? no thank you. i have put in 7 years of negative research and would not like to go back. i have people tell me that about childbirth too, "i could never do natural childbirth!"  oh, yes you could. anyone can. you just do it, and then it's done and you ask for your grape juice.

so the theme of this post? i have no idea. but i'll leave you my recipe so you can have a happy weekend.
