"I'm Not a Baby!"

It was a gorgeous and busy day today. I woke my mom up early this morning so that we could go to the 8:15am service at church because I knew the 9:30am one would be way overcrowded. It was a really nice Easter service, great worship and message. Upon arriving back home I helped Mom change into some more comfortable clothes...she has a broken right wrist you know, which reminds me, last night we had Beef Burgundy for dinner. It's beef, onions, mushrooms, and carrots in a beef sauce with red wine in it, served over noodles. Anyway, you know how hard it is to pick up noodles sometimes? Well, try doing it with your less dominant hand. My mom couldn't eat hers too fast so I offered to help, picking up her spoon so that I could get more and putting it up to her mouth. She quickly said, "No, I'm not a baby!" We all got a good laugh, especially the boys. Somehow she managed just fine. :)

Ha, ha. I try not to help with anything she can possibly do for herself. Using her left hand is actually good for her thinking skills. :)

Yeah, I tend to help too much, but her reaction was hilarious. The boys, Mom, and I all laughed. Dave was outside skinning a squirrel. He has decided that since they chewed 5 of our hoses last fall, he is going to see what they taste like. :( Our dad used to eat them (Mom told me). Dave's friend Brian eats them.
