Asking your kids, "How was school today?" and always getting, "fine."

That was my normal response to my parents, so why am I surprised?  I ask my nieces about their days and I never really get a lot of good information about what happened.

And I'm curious!! 

I'd like to know what happened in the lunch room, or before the bell rang in the morning.  I'd like to know what they did in math that day, or who they played with at recess.  I just never could get them to TELL me without driving them crazy and asking zillions of questions.

Then I came across this on my FB newsfeed, and it was so good I had to share.  Now, it's not my work, and they are not my questions, but the simplicity of them were an, "ah ha!" moment for me.  

So here's the link.  It's worth a read!

My little, adorable, bundle of joy reason for being M.I.A.


I haven't blogged in forrreevvverr BUT I have the greatest reason why!!

I had a baby!

She and I are hanging out at home until mid-October, so I've gone off the grid, so to speak.  

In all honesty, between lack of sleep and adjusting to life with a newborn, my world (and house) has l.i.t.e.r.a.l.l.y. been turned upside down!  

And I wouldn't change any of it for the world!

So, meet my reason for staying M.I.A. this fall:

Nora Mae
6 lbs 10 oz

She turned 6 weeks today!  

So even though I am taking this time off from blogging... there's always ideas floating around in my head that I can't wait to blog about once I get back to school.

But for now... I'll stick to diaper changes, laundry, and spit up.  I'm one happy mama!
