As pretty as...

Lately, Austin and I have been working lots of puzzles!


I love to watch him as he works. He takes his puzzles very seriously. He reminds me a lot of myself - diligent but easily frustrated when he can't get the pieces together just right. Sometimes you just have to ask for help, I tell him.

That is how I have felt about my blog lately. I have been playing with html and just couldn't get it right. Sometimes you just have to ask for help! I am so glad that I did. Thank you so much to Kelly for creating a beautiful blog background for me.

As Austin finished this puzzle yesterday, he looked at me and said, "I love this puzzle. Do you know why?

Why Austin?

Look how happy my trains are?


That's how I feel about my new blog - so happy!


Side note: Today at school, Austin filled out a questionnaire about his mommy. He had to answer the following question. Your mom is as pretty as _______________

Do you want to know his answer?

An Elephant. He said, My mom is as pretty as an elephant!

Considering that elephants are currently his favorite animal, I am going to take it as a compliment and then go work out later today.

By the way, Kelly, I think that my blog is as pretty as... an elephant, too! At my house that is a high compliment!

bahahaha!! i'm catching up on your old blogs instead of diving into my reading for my next class :o) this one is soooo precious and literally made me laugh out loud. to have the innocence of a child "look how happy my trains are!" or being able to say your mommy is as pretty as an elephant and believing that it is a compliment with all your heart..i love that little boy!
