Questionable domestication

This morning we had the walk-through for Quinlynne's recital. We had to be up & at the Tulsa PAC by 8:40. Kinda early for a Saturday in my opinion. Nevertheless, on the way home Quinlynne told me she wanted pancakes. I told her we could do that at home and she was good with that. So, once we get home I got the pancake mix, milk & eggs out and started the process. Quinlynne asked me what I was doing. I told her I was making her pancakes. She said "But Momma, you don't make pancakes like that. You make them in the microwave (while pointing up at the microwave)." I felt like SUCH the horrible mother. My daughter really thinks pancakes are supposed to be taken from the freezer and "cooked" in the microwave. Am I a totally terrible mother, or what??

(By the way- she gobbled down two of my "different" kind of pancakes in nothing-flat.)

Crazy time of year

Anyone noticed how crazy the time span of mid-November to January 1 is? I think it's the same way from late March-the beginning of June. There is SOOOO much going on, especially if anyone in your family is involved in school and school activities. There's Spring Break, tests, Easter, Teacher Appreciation week/day, graduation, etc. Quinlynne had her Preschool Graduation this past week. It was very adorable. The beginning of the program was the preschool's Spring program. The 2, 3, & 4 year olds each had some songs they sang. Then the 4 year olds donned caps & "gowns" and marched in as their name was called. After they were gathered at the front of the chapel they all sang "Lean on Me". Very cute. I almost got tears in my eyes. I held out though. I was thinking to myself "Shandolynne, you won't blink your eyes and it will be her high school graduation you'll be attending."
Here are a few pics of the special evening. There is Quinlynne before we left the house, acting goofy; Quinlynne & her teacher, Mr. Cody; Quinlynne entering the chapel; and me & Quin (notice I have more chins than a Chinese phone book. I was falling as I was squatting down, trying to not drop the camera and take the picture...can you believe no one offered to take the picture for us? I'm sure I would have looked at least 200 lbs slimmer!)

What's after that?

While riding in the car, Quinlynne likes to ask what holiday is next. So, after Valentine's Day it was "What's after that momma?" My answer was "St. Patrick's Day. That's the day we all wear green!" Quinlynne's response was "What's after that momma?" You get the picture. So, yesterday evening Quinlynne was sitting on the sofa. She asked me if it was still Mothers' Day. I replied that it was not. She said "Momma, when's Daughter's Day?"

Two tests

This week I have two tests. Last week I had 3. Wooh! It keeps me busy. Thank goodness Uncle Charlie & Aunt Connie took Quinlynne for me this weekend. I would be faring much better but my back is acting up. Last week it was nearly impossible to walk a couple of days. I went to a new doctor & he is going to refer me to an Orthopedist. Needless to say, it's difficult to study when one can hardly sit in a chair. The position I am most comfortable in is lying on either one of my sides in bed....difficult to study & not fall asleep that way. Yesterday I was feeling better and tackled making some burp cloths for my aunt to try to sell for me in VanBuren this coming weekend. Maybe I'll take pictures of some of them. They're adorable. I just wanted to post something quickly since it had been a while. Back to get my nose in the books! Oh- and here's a picture of Quinlynne & I on Easter.
