This is why second children are so laid back

Because when they and their brother take turns waking up for various reasons all night long their parents have no qualms with plunking them in front of The Today Show so they can drink their coffee.

Poor little guy has the grand-daddy of all diaper rashes. No more orange vegetables for him for a while. Charlie has a really miserable cold. He wept bitterly for twenty minutes yesterday because he "wanted to hear a train" and I could not provide that experience for him. [bang bang bang head on wall]

Our morning plans include trips to the grocery store and Blockbuster followed by hours of annoyingly upbeat animated entertainment.

This was the scene out my front door yesterday afternoon. That's not snow, that's quarter-sized hail, or "ice rain" as Charlie perceptively described it. We were lucky. Further west they had tennis ball sized hail.

Hail Storm

I'm glad to see that Wesley's hair is still punk rock, even post-haircut!

My kids are home sick today, too. Yesterday was a very looooooong day.

Charlie is so smart about the hail! His mommy is teaching him well!

My kid is in the same toy watching TWC :) Nice hail! We're getting SNOW this weekend! --abby

Awesome picture-- the ice rain is creepy.

Bolt is good if you're looking for CGI entertainment (a little violent, though-- oops)

Hope the kids feel better soon (J eats so many orange veggies his nose is orange)

I love the term "ice rain". He's already proving smarter than half of the students in the Intro to Met class.

Could you find a train on YouTube?

Wow, that's a lot of hail!
