*The other night Benjamin was helping me cook dinner. He was in charge of sautéing the vegetables. I was cutting up fruit and he said, "Hey mom! I bet these vegetables don't like being in here getting cooked. It's really hot in there!" I laughed and smiled because, well, he is right. I told him that we should cook together every night because he adds so much fun to the process :)
*Andrew's favorite joke right now is this:
Uncle Kent who?
NO! Silly a cow goes moooooo!
*I eat roasted sweet potatoes nearly every day. Somedays if I don't have enough for a salad, I will eat them for breakfast.
*On Monday, I turned 32. That sounds kind of old, but in my mind I will always be 28. At 28 I had one baby and had grown up a little and ran my first half marathon and had moved a few times and had been married 5 years. It was a good year. I couldn't pick an age before 28 because I didn't have kids and I am such a different person with children than without. Either way, I feel 28.
*On Wednesday we celebrated 9 years of marriage. NINE years. It seems like a big number, but it feels like just a few years. I barely remember my life without Patrick. He makes me better and deals so kindly with me. There is a song by Jack Johnson called "Better Together" -- and that sums it up pretty well...
