"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

I can proudly say...

that I did absolutely no housework today other than what was strictly necessary. You know, a few dishes, feeding the child, things like that. I decided that after busting my ass all day yesterday that I would do what I wanted to do today. I even had the perfect excuse. A fellow blogger asked for my help in finding a pattern for a University of Alabama baby afghan. Since neither of us could find one, I immersed my self in the fun of designing today. I got the pattern off to her this evening and, hopefully, it is without any mistakes. I had a blast doing it.

Mr. Gabeycakes and I had a fabulous day too. He decided that we had to make cookies today since we didn't have any in the house. What?!? A household with kids that didn't have cookies...that's a crime. Well, evidently, Gabe thought so too because he insisted on rectifying that. We made two pans of chocolate chip cookie bars and played numerous rounds of "The Ghost Game" (known to the rest of us as Ms. Pacman) which is his latest obsession.

I promise I won't have too many more of these lame-o mommy blogger posts. I love talking about my kids and I love that y'all come around to read about it but, at least the posts are usually more entertaining. I'll try to come up with something more scintillating for y'all to read.

I'm sooo grateful for creative people like you! I plan to start on the pattern soon. And yes, a kiddie household without cookies is a crime. Sometimes a grown-up one is as well. We like Oreo's and Oatmeal Butterscotch best.

Chocolate chip bars....yummy! Glad you had a low-key day and were able to have some Ms. Pacman (one of my favs!) time. :)
