Something tells me I'm doing this right...

We picked up my sister from the airport today. She came to be my slave so that I don't have to worry about picking tomatoes too strenuously, what with the specific post-op instructions....

Anyways, on the way home from the airport, I asked the kids what they wanted to show Aunt Meredith. What cool places they'd like her to see while she's visiting.

Thaddeus - "I want to take her to the Gardens!"

Daniel - "Ooh! Ooh! Gardens!"

Me - "Oh yeah? The Botanic Gardens? That's a really cool place. How 'bout you Blayners? Where do you want to take Aunt Meredith to?"

Blayne - "Ummm, I want to take her to McDonalds."

That's my girl.


  1. Smart kid you have there.

    I just saw your Facebook status about making her a blog. Sounds fun!

  2. Slavery: Good (in THIS case)
    Botanical Gardens: Good
    McDonalds for Wearing kids out: Good.

    Looks like you are set, good luck. I will be thinking about you.

  3. Thinking about ya, babe. You're so lucky to have a willing slave at your beckon call ;) Hugs!

  4. hahaha my kids would totally say the same thing!! lol. hope all goes well!

  5. haha that's awesome

  6. pffft. Wait, I'm pretty sure that's what Miles would have suggested.

    I'll be thinking of you and EVEN PRAYING for you during this stupid surgery. I'm sorry, but I'm also glad your sister is there.

    uuuu, (happy) new year and all that stuff.

  7. What is it about sisters named Meredith who are the cool aunts? My kids think their Aunt Mer is the greatest.

  8. I'm glad you'll have someone there to help you.

    If I was with you, I would have suggested that we take her to The Cheesecake Factory.
