Hearts are for boys, too

For Valentine's this year, I was inspired to be a little more crafty and came up with a plan to make these adorable felt heart hair clips for the girls. And despite not being an "artsy craftsy" type of mom, I must say they turned out very cute. Except the girls refused to wear them. They wouldn't even let me get close to their hair. Incredibly disappointing.

Oliver, on the other hand, loved them. He wanted one on each side. Every morning for at least a week has asked me for "two hearts", "two hearts, mommy". Who says hearts are only for girls?

Kate's new obsession ...

Last weekend we went shopping for rubber snakes for a cub scout project, and from the beginning, Kate was completely obsessed with the idea of snakes. All the way to the store, she kept repeating, "go to store to buy snakes!!" with that excited squeal she gets sometimes. She searched intently up and down the toy aisles, and was over the top when we found them. She gathered up about fifteen of them in her arms, and has not put them down since. If anyone else even tries to touch one, all Hades breaks loose. At least she's not trying to sleep with them.
