Yellow streak

Some people think that green is the color associated with Spring having sprung. Those people are mistaken; yellow is the color of Spring. One advantage to Daylight Savings Time (maybe the only advantage) is that DS1 is still awake on the ride home, so he can look out the window and actually see stuff. Riding home on Tuesday, he got very excited. "Mommy, look! Yellow flowers! I see yellow flowers!" And, sure enough, there was a huge patch of daffodils in one of the yards. "And more yellow flowers!" Every neighborhood we passed by had yards with perennials. Then he got even more excited. "That's a big yellow flower bush!" he said, spying a forsythia, "There's yellow all over!" . As we pulled into the driveway, I told him that I had something special to show him. Our garden if finally blooming, so the forsythia bush at the corner of the house has visible color and the buds have finally opened up on the patch of daffodils next to the front steps. "Check it out, buddy. You have your own yellow flowers." He stare in awe. His eyes grew wide. "oh, WOW," he sighed. I have cemented by place in the Mommy Hall of Fame.

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
