At 4 a.m. I hear a small voice, "Aunt Snappy?" "Are you o.k.?" I ask. I am groggy and can't see in the dark. "What's the matter did you have a bad dream?" I assume it's Boy B but I better make sure."Are you Boy A or Boy B?"
"I'm Boy A!" -- next thing I know he is dragging his blanket behind him and curls up on the floor next to the bed where I almost step on him at 7:30 a.m.
Correct scenario, wrong boy!

For show and tell my daughter is suppose to bring something to school that reminds her of spring. She wants to take her blue blanket. "It's the color of the sky and the color of grass." And so a little history about the blue blanket:
1. She has had this blanket since birth.
2. It is also known as "Blue Blank."
3. It is getting holes, fraying, and is soft and comfy from all the washing.
I am glad it reminds her of spring.

Did you know? When it comes to working out, the most important meal you eat is the one you eat after you exercise. The meal you eat at this time is the most important for building muscle and replenishing energy sources. Your muscles need protein for repair and growth, and your body needs some carbohydrates to replenish its glycogen stores. Remember, right before exercise you have to consider the time it takes to digest food, so you need to go light. Post-workout is the ideal time to have a full meal. So what's the best meal, or combination of foods, to have post-workout?
Healthy Post-Workout Meals
Chicken and Mixed Vegetables
Egg Omelet with Avocado
Salmon, Spinach, and Sweet Potato
Tuna, Brown Rice, and Vegetables

Q: "Do Mom cows eat grass?"
Q: "Do Dad cows eat frogs?"
Singing in the background from Z: "Do your ears hang low, do they wobble to and fro, can you tie them in a knot can you tie them in a bow?" Snappy asks Lulu if her ears hand low: "No they hang up by my hair."
Sneeze! "Bless you, me!"
