Furry Babies are The Best

Monster, have I told you lately that I love you?

I often feel like I have two children (one 7 year old and one 18 month old). People always tell me that older siblings help care for the younger ones, and the same is true in our family. Monster accompanies me when I put Colin to bed, and as soon as she hears Colin's cries from the monitor, she races up the steps to get him. Monster's "Lassie-like" personality reminds me of Nanny from Peter Pan who looked after the Darling's children.

Taking care of a baby sure wears a dog out...

I agree completely!

Library Card

I am now a proud member of the Westbank Library! I haven't been a library cardholder since grade school and A LOT has changed since then. The Laura Bush Library is SO fabulous - it doesn't smell like a library, it doesn't look like a library and it's so high tech! You can reserve books/movies online and pick them up via the drive through. How's that for service?
Plus, they offer tons of activities for children: story time, music, crafts, even bed-time story time where they provide milk and cookies.

See you at the library!
