I am folding laundry while the kids are snacking, and I overhear Vin tell his friend, “When you turn 16, you have to move out.”
Only 5 more years!!!
The other night we were all out to dinner–the family & a few Aunts & an old family friend. And B was entertaadults the adults. I wish I would have saved the picture she drew to scan. It was basically a circle with 4 lines sticking out from the bottom.

Daniel turns to Brian and asks, “If Mommy is dead, does that make you the boss now?”
