cuz' i want to

That is what Julia told me tonight when I asked her why she did something. I don't even remember what it was that I asked her, but she responded with "Cuz want to." Can you guess where she picked that up? Her sisters. She also picked up "why?" She's 19 months old and has been using those phrases for a while now. Cassidy didn't start asking why until almost three years old, than Molly and Julia picked it up real fast. I have three little girls always asking me "Why?" Gets old after a while, but "Cuz want to" is way cute.

   So its 6:30am, i am feeding sean in the living room, listening to cassidy and julia right above me having fun in bed. they are laughing, making noises, and not sleeping. its cute being a part of their fun  from a distance, not interrupting. sean may or may not go back to sleep after eating, usually he doesn't after this lat night/first morning feed. but that is okay because over the last two weeks he has developed an awesome night sleep pattern, one stretch of at least 6 hours, up to nine one night!!! i am in love, in heaven, and not altogether exhausted. oh that it will continue. please please please.
   Last night joe and i had date night. kids and politics were off limits. it was WONDERFUL. love my kids, love discussing what's going on, but it's nice to have a break and talk about other things. we then watched a couple of episodes of Merlin together and went to bed. sean had been sleeping since 730 pm and didn't get up 130 am, it was fabulous.  a nice night with joe was so needed.
   The weather went from 98 degrees Tuesday to just 75 today, fall arrived!!!
   Gas prices, in case you are ready for a shock, went from $4.45 sunday to $4.89 last night!!! It cost joe over $80 to fill up his Passat!! What happened? There was even a 10 cent increase yesterday from the tome we went to the library at 10 am an going out to dinner last night. RIDICULOUS!!!!
