Roses



Last week Austin was being ugly to me about something and made me really sad so of course he had to make up by bringing me some beautiful roses. When Kora saw my roses she asked who they were for and Austin told her they were for mom. She got SO MAD at him and said, "where are mine?" It took quite a while for him to calm her down but she was still really pissed because not only were the roses NOT hers, but he didn't think to get her some TOO. Later that evening, I had to run to the store and before I left, Kora told me to get her some flowers because daddy forgot to get her some too. I told her that if she really wanted to, she could choose one of my roses to be her very own. She LOVED that idea and picked the prettiest pink rose out of the bunch. She put it in her very own vase and looks at it and smells it every day.

Austin learned a couple very valuable lessons from all of this. First of all, don't be ugly to your wife and second, if you get roses for her, you better get some for every other female species in the home too!

And thanks for the comments on my blog, your awesome! The packing paper post will soon be your life, and you will be amazed, what you saw on my blog truly is but a fraction, tiny fraction, of the paper you will mound up during one of your moves. Good luck! Keep the posts coming, I love reading them!
