Life in a family is a mixture, as you see.

It's studying for social studies, math and abc's.

It's washing and cleaning and baking chocolate chips.

"Pick up your clothes!"  "Make your bed."  "You're acting like a dip."

"I'm hungry."  "Where's my pants?"  "Did you sew up my skirt?"

"Feed the bird."  "Comb your hair."  "Who brought in all this dirt?"

"Can I go to the game room?"  "Can Todd come over night?"

"Practice piano."  "Blow your nose."  "Did you get that problem right?"

"I love you."  is the bottom line--the most important part.

It keeps this crazy mixture changing---ever heart to heart.
