Building Dreams & Imagination; Living in the Chaos. Real Family, Real Children, Real Life.

This week is "Dr. Seuss" week for Bu, at school. 

Today is "who hair" day. Bu is "Biyuley Boo Who."

My Niece, Lu, is so very much like her cousin, Arrow. They both have so much energy it's hard to pin them down. 

Their attention span doesn't exist, and trying to get them to quiet down is like asking a stampede to tiptoe. 

Lu and Bu love their cousins. They hate to be s...
