Let's hope she doesn't eat too many Little Debbies in her life


Emma is the non-exerciser of the family. She's the kid who will totally be trying everything she can to get out of P.E. when she starts school because running is harrrrrrd. Due to her disgust with anything that deals with exerting herself past her comfort zone, I was quite amazed when she asked if she could walk on the way to the park yesterday instead of maintaining her usual seat in the wagon. About half way to the park, she put her hands on her forehead and looked at me in horror...

Emma: OH NO! My face! It's wet!
Me: Yes hun, that's sweat. It happens when you exercise.
Emma: I don't like fweat. I wanna ride in the wagon again.

That's my Emmabear. That's the girl I know.

That's my Bronte. Davis will want to spend all day outside doing yardwork with us, and Bronte will tell us that she'd rather stay inside and be lazy.

Thats hilarious, and I can so see her saying/doing that! I ask Jolee continually, do you want to go outside and play....No it's too HOT out there!

I can understand Emma's thoughts. I went for a quick paced walk with my son last night around 8:00 (central time) and by the time I got home you would have thought I just got out of the shower!
Your blog is so sweet. I just popped over from Lynnette Kraft's blog because I love looking at photography and she noted you have some great pictures. Thanks for sharing! :)

Hi Amber!

Great blog! Your daughter's story reminded me of a George Carlin quote - "Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things!"

I'm glad Lynette found you!
