    DD3 does not eat easily. We had agreed on 10 more bites of her dinner before she could have dessert. While eating she gave us a run down on addition facts to ten including five plus five is ten. When she got to bite five of her dinner I asked her how many more she had to go. She counted on from five to ten and then counted those numbers as though they were in the sky in front of her pointing to each one and said 5.

    This isn't really a brag, more of a funny quote.

    We were driving home from vacation the other day and the girls were hungry. The only thing we had in the car were apples. DD9 starts saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away", so DD4 says then we should eat 15-20 a day. About a minute later she says "um, no, I was incorrect, if you eat 15-20 apples you wouldn't keep a doctor away, you'd be calling one quickly because you'd make yourself sick!"

    Not exactly a brag, but had to share because I figure you all will appreciate this.

    Bear(5) is horrendously irritated by the fact the classic Valentine's Day heart doesn't look like the anatomical one. He went into a several minute long tirade on it the other day.

    Proudest moment ever: DD9.5 defended a classmate who was being bullied on the bus yesterday. Hearing the story secondhand (from other kids) she screamed and yelled at the bully at the top of her lungs and gave her a dressing down that had her exiting the bus in tears. Today at school the bully apologized to the classmate, on her own accord.

    My 3-year-old son informed me last night that Pluto's moon is called Charon. Apparently he read it in a book. The boy officially knows more about space than I do. ;-)

    DD 16.5 months mastered her knob puzzles a while ago, but wasn't "getting" how her 12 piece jigsaw made one whole picture. I got her a 4 piece yesterday and after seeing me do it a few times, she got it. She could match up the pieces and went straight over to another 8 piece chunky picture puzzle she wasn't getting and did that one, too! (I still have to help connect the pieces, though, once she puts them together. Her fine motor skills aren't quite there yet.)
