Out Of The Mouths...

When Stella was a toddler she used to spin around and around in circles and then stop, still swaying from side to side and exclaim, "I'm so busy! I'm so busy!"

It was a terribly cute example of childish catachresis but oh, how apropos it now seems. My schedule is so overburdened that I really am dizzy and disoriented most of the time.

I crave the sun, a beach, a cool drink and a good book.

Who's with me?

Me! Me! I'm now -- and quite officially -- sick to death of winter. A new layer of snow on the sidewalk and below freezing temps has me packing my bags to join you, just say the word.

That's a great one by Stella, and it reminds me of a very recent This American Life episode called 'kid logic' (the 2nd one on the linked page, be sure to listen if you can!)

Note to Alannah and Lori: breathe.

Totally with you on this one; you grab the ice, I'll get the Margarita mix...
