Babysitting as a teenager, somehow I always attracted babies that were bald or nearly bald, and I’d always wish for the same thing, “Lord when I have a little girl please give her a lot of her”, I should have wished to be a millionaire.

My princess H gives a whole new meaning to Chaka Khan;


She was born with a full head of hair, that was long, I wonder how much longer it would have been had she gone full term?


So of course with the above picture in mind, getting her hair under some semblance of control is an almost all-day project; about 45 minutes to shampoo and conditioner, another hour to dry, and about 5-6 hours to get it braided (with lots of breaks in between to produce these masterpieces;

On being the keeper of the kitchen, Henry’s reaction to his big brother’s after school snack;
“Papa, Prince H finished the roni macci cheese” - Papa, Harry finished the macaroni and cheese

Playing in their room, Henry takes away a toy from his sister leading to the following;
Princess H, “Henry you don’t like girls” his reply “I love girls”

Thank goodness my husband has a sense of humor, how many partners would react angrily if they heard the conversation below?
Looking at the picture below, “Mama who is that white man?” My reply “Your Papa” His response “Oh”


On a serious note, Henry has got to be one of the most flexible people I know, he can practically fall asleep anywhere the proof is in the pictures. (Click on thumbnail to see larger image)

.. when you go in for an annual exam and your physician suggests having your cholesterol tested. Not that I’m upset with it, high cholesterol runs on my mom’s side of the family so knowing is power since I plan on being around for a very long time :). I got my re-fill on allergy meds, and I am now a very happy gal.

Today Prince H and I completed his Valentine’s Day cards project which we found here while the younger siblings created flower’s from tissue paper’s for teacher’s and school bus driver.

I think they turned out pretty good, don’t you?
