::Well spent::

We have a brand new four-year old in the house. His requests for the day: Cocoa Puffs for breakfast, Kraft Dinner and hot dogs for dinner, and chocolate cake and ice cream for dessert. Mostly--ew! But he calls the shots today.

He and Daddy went to McDonald's for their date. And I found a really neat gift made by Doug & Melissa. When asked what he wanted this year Gabriel replied, "Tools. . . And cars." He ended up with both: A fire engine that he could assemble.

We tried to rise above our assortments of household illnesses to provide some pep to the day, but it was hard. So many kinds of sick are in this house at the moment.

We did our best and our little boy fell asleep well spent.
