Valentine's Day

First off, I am amazed that I am posting about Valentine's on Valentine's Day, and not sometime later this summer. Randon has baseball today, so we celebrated last night. Last night Randon took all his girls out. He bought us each flowers, and took us to a little local Italian restaurant. We had a great time, and the girls were absolutely thrilled to get their own flowers! After dinner, we came home and had desserts that Jessilyn and I had prepared-lemon tart, and chocolate covered strawberries. We put the girls to bed, and Randon and I watched a movie. This morning, we decorated the dining room, and the girls woke up to a Valentine's Day breakfast treat-donuts! Fun times...

Don't Worry, Mom

Last week the girls were playing outside and I had the back door open while I was fixing them lunch. Out of nowhere, I heard Jessilyn scream, "Ooooooh my Goooddddddd!" (d sound emphasized) I felt my blood immediately begin to broil. I calmly said, "Jessilyn, please come here." The following conversation proceeded like this:

Me: "What did you just say?"
Jess: "What Mom?" (with a completely innocent/oblivious face)
Me: "What did you just say?"
Jess: "Don't worry, Mom. I said 'Oh my Goddddd, not Oh my gosh'." (not sure about the
double quotation English teacher would be so proud...)

We have always told Jessilyn that we don't say "Oh my gosh," but we've never explained the reasoning behind the rule. Obviously, it was time to do some explaining!
