- One of the daycare teachers informed me that Colby said Clara's name this week! She was apparently crying (shocking), and he said "Cara." I didn't hear it myself, but if and when I do, I'm pretty sure my heart will explode into a million pieces.
- Two of the daycare teachers asked me on separate occasions if Clara likes to clean. Ha! We don't call her the "Messy Misses" for nothing, so I wouldn't exactly answer that one with a 'yes.' She does, however, like to help pick things up, throw things in the trash, etc. Apparently she has been going around "cleaning" her classroom with a rag and trying to wipe the other babies' faces, especially if they spill their milk. I might or might not be beaming with pride at the thought of having passed on some of my neat freak tendencies.
- Some mosquitoes recently tested positive for West Nile virus in Sugar Land this week. You know, the place where I live/work/spend all of my time. So that's cool. Ever since I read the article, I have been itching just thinking about it and in a constant state of paranoia that they're coming after me.
- I have always thought it would be fun to be "regulars" at a restaurant somewhere, and as of last night, I think we have found our somewhere. There's a subpar-but-still-tasty restaurant right around the corner from our house called Los Tios. We decided to pay them a visit last night, and were pleasantly surprised to find that Happy Hour lasts all day on Thursdays. In addition to drink specials, they also have a FREE queso/salsa/bean "bar."
Add in the fact that we had a buy one, get one half off coupon, and our family of 4 had dinner - including a giant beer for Brian - for $18 + tip. The twins' dinner was basically queso and refried beans.
At first, they were fervently dipping their chips in the beans and queso, but quickly learned that their fingers worked just as well:
When we left, she had queso on her clothes, in her hair, and even stuck in her eyelashes.
Children after my own heart.
So do share… what was the highlight of YOUR week?
