Mommy Rae, 39

Emily: Mommy, what's your middle name?

Me: Rae. R-A-E

Emily: R-A-E. Okay. I know your last name H-U-*-*-*.

Me: Good job, spelling, Em!

Emily: And, how old are you?

Me: Super old. 3-9. 39

Emily: 3-9 (still writing on her doodle board).

Andrew: It's going to be a long time before you're a grown- up, Emily. You have to have lots of birthdays before you're a grown- up.

Emily: Like, 10?

Andrew: 11!


Me: Slow down, y'all. You don't want to be an adult just yet, do you?

Emily: Yes! When you're an adult, you can do whatever you want!

Me: I don't want you two to be adults. Can't you just stay my babies?

Emily: No! We want to be grown- ups. You can have another baby.

Andrew: Or, Emily can grow up and have a baby for you. Only Emily can have babies because she's a girl.

Mommy Rae Hu***, 39

Easter Traditions

The preacher's message at church yesterday was, in part, about the traditions, mostly of the non- biblical origin that surround Easter. It was spot on, which then got me thinking about the traditions we have come to enjoy as a family.

Coordinating outfits
White shoes for Emily
Overstuffed Easter baskets
Peanut butter eggs
Church at Darlington with GiGi, Aunt Windy, and Uncle Tom
Squirming and wiggling in the pew through the cantata
Running down the ramp
Egg hunt at church

While we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, we celebrate life-- life that we have through Him-- both here and in the hereafter.
