I can't make this stuff up.

Henry (age 6): Mommy, I love God so much that it never stops.

I can't make this stuff up.

Stop-my-heart moment of the day, as I overheard Harper say to her friend, Allison:

"Okay, now let's go to my room because that's where I'm getting pregnant."

After I regained consciousness, I learned that Harper intended to get pregnant by taking a baby doll from her room to put under her dress. We have since had several pregnancies and deliveries, resulting in a nursery full of beautifully-quiet plastic-headed glass-eyed newborns.

My heart has still not recovered.

Sweet sweet memories.

Grrrrr . . . I want to catch up to blogging real time so badly. But LIFE. It's so bossy. Geesh.

So June, 2013. Gosh, if I had a time machine, I would only need to go back to June. Two of my year's highlights occurred in June.

1) It was the last time I would ever see my Grandma Hollywood. She left this world for a better one only 3 months later. What I wouldn't give to hold her always soft, mostly wrinkled, beautifully manicured hand just one more time.

2) It was the first time that Matt and I have ever taken a trip together - JUST US TWO. Basically, it was our honeymoon, only 6 years and three kids later. I can describe it in one word: BLISS.

June, 2013: Love ya. Miss ya. Mean it.
