One of the many reasons why I love my younger, single brother

"Hey, Liss!" he says when I answer the phone. "How about I bring over some Happy Meals for the kids around 11:30?"

"Perfect!" I respond enthusiastically.

"Chicken nuggets, right? And juice?"

"Sounds great! They'll love that!"

"And, let's see, Big Mac no onions and a Dr. Pepper for you, right?"

Does he know me, or what?! So far, so good!

Then, almost as an afterthought, a tentative "Oh, but what about Kristen?"

Silence.

"Ummm, no, wait, she's still too little...right?"

:)

Right.

Hi, Melissa! I haven't read or commented on your blog in what feels like ages. So first of all, Kristen is absolutely adorable - fits perfectly into your beautiful family. I love your haircut! And finally, your new blog look is amazing. I love the title and music. So are you planning any Blogger classes for those of us who just can't seem to figure it out? :)

OK, you know what's even more fun? When your baby brother marries and has a baby of his own and mimes the use of a breast pump at the family Christmas party. That's awesome. :)
