normally the parents are supposed to get sick. heather is sick. so this morning when the kids got up at a little before 5:30am i went in to survey the damage. kenzie was playing in her crib and maddie was coughing up smurfs from her allergies/cold. i think they go hand in hand in this household. upon finding maddie in the dark and soothing her, she says. “daddy. it’s not light outside, is it?”

question of the day: how high will gas prices have to go until you think twice about driving?
