A friend was blogging about saying "no" to your kids as infrequently as possible. We fail pretty badly at that around here. I am so thankful that at least the wonderful days are here when the kids say, "can we go outside?" and I can say, "YES!"

We even had a picnic at the park with dad today to celebrate the feast of St. Joseph the Worker. (I have no pictures of that...too busy trying to keep feeding muffin man).

Moved the birdseed outside. The birds love it ;0)

muffin man ;0)

Anyone have a bigger swing set they're looking to unload?

aren't they pretty?

I love watching them swing from the side. It's so cool!

St. Joseph, Pray For Us!


  1. Don't get me wrong- we say no to our kids about a hundred times a day. Kids hear no so much, that we were just saying it's important to make sacrifices to say yes when you can- at least when it might be beneficial to them somehow-- like you said a few posts ago about doing social things, etc. for the kids' sakes, when it might not be exactly what YOU want to do.

    You know me- I read into things and have to clarify ;-)

    And wasn't today gorgeous!? We spent all day outside too.

    1. You are right. I read that again and it didn't sound the way I meant it. You said it much better. Your kids too well-raised and well-behaved to not hear "no" on a fairly regular basis (because, they are all "Id" at this stage, yes?). Guess that's what I meant too.

      Thanks for clarifying :0)
