Top 5 COOL things that happened today (even though it was HOT)

Today was incredible. The weather in San Francisco has been completely out of the ordinary, it was sunny and hot – ice cream weather! I took the kids to the park but we only stayed about 45 minutes because my littlest looked as if we was going to melt. Aside from the weather some really cool things happened today – here’s my top 5. Top 5 Cool things that happened today (even though it was HOT): 1. The principal at my daughter’s school allowed me to include a flyer about my upcoming Bundle of Trouble reading. I was super happy about that – talk about community support! My flyer went out to about 400 families! 2. We got to eat ice cream – guilt free. How can you feel guilty when it’s hot? 3. I spoke with my editor – always nice to talk to her! 4. All three kids were sacked out by 8 p.m. How did that happen? Gotta love the heat – it zaps the energy out of…well…out of most, doesn’t it? 5. And – drumroll please – I started Book III –...

Top 5 Reasons I love my little guy.

Why oh why are babies so irresistible? Don’t get me wrong – I love all my babies, no matter how old they are BUT my six month old is so darn cute. Were the other two this cute? (I’m sure they were because actually they all look alike.) I was staring at the baby this morning and he is so happy and grabby, just wants to grab your face and, of course, all I want to do is study him. So there we are peacefully enjoying ourselves – no complaining, no talking back, no ‘I wants’. Maybe that’s it – we love babies because they don’t talk back. Top 5 Reasons I love my little guy: 1. He’s cute. 2. He doesn’t talk back. 3. I could be a hormone thing. 4. He loves me back (I can think that anyway). 5. He doesn’t care if all I do all day is stare at him. Here’s a couple photos of my bundles of trouble – I’ll do a list for the other two...

Top 5 Favorite Things about Date Night

I’d like to list “No Kids” five times and although that might be true, it would be a kind of like cheating – so here goes: 1. Time with Hubby (sort of a no-brainer as that is the whole point) but I have to list it. 2. No kids (of course, right up there with number 1). 3. Get to wear “grown up” shoes, becasue I won’t have to chase anyone unexpectly! 4. Can wear a “grown up” blouse or dress – because the only spit up I’ll have to worry about is my own! 5. I can bring a small tiny-teeny cocktail purse!  All I need is my phone – you know, so the babysitter can reach me and lipstick and maybe a little compact so I can put the lipstick on (although I usually use the bathroom mirror – but tonight we are going on a bay cruise) – oh – hey – here is a product idea for you – when are they going to make phones where the screen can light up as a mirror?  Hmmm. Oh and I forgot I won’t miss the noise. I love just being with my husband and hanging out and being able to enjoy SILENCE! What about you? What are you favorite things about date...

Top 5 Favorite Things at the Fair

Today we went to the San Mateo County Fair.  I did a reading on Bundle of Trouble and then we took the kids on the rides they wanted to go on (or better put – all the rides they were tall enough for). Below are my top 5 favorite things: 1. Free Parking!  Becuase I was hosted by the Creative Arts department we got a parking pass – who doesn’t love that? 2. My reading went well (sigh of relief) and Carmen my 5 yr old got to sit beside me during it! 3. Hot dogs on a stick (always a crowd pleaser). 4.
