NaBloPoMo Day 24: Under the Wire

to have one's ducks in a row

  1. (idiomatic) To be organized; to have one's affairs in order; specifically, to have a multi-person effort coordinated towards the exact same goal.
    Wouldn't it be nice to have our ducks in a row and not have to search for the papers every time we needed them? (from 

The day is almost done, and I haven't had a chance to get my National Blog Posting Month post up yet. Things have been busy! I've been doing this and this!  It's all very exciting!  
Like the "Ducks in a Row" photo? Courtesy of Little One. When I said, "Mommy really needs to get her ducks in a row", Little One lined up her rubber duckies and dragged me to the bathroom.
"Get your ducks in a row like this, Mama?"
Wow. Kids are so smart. It's amazing how they absorb the world and happenings around them and are able to form their own understanding of things. 
I still can't get over the fact that she tells me things like, "Mommy, I have an idea. I have a HY-PO-POSIS", "I yuuuuv Quinoa salad!" or "I'd like to have goat cheese on my hamgurber". In between running around like a chicken with my head cut off and trying to do everything (and never getting everything done), I manage to find moments of clarity where I catch glimpses of the magic that is childhood. It is brilliant seeing my Little One making connections and formulating her own ideas and opinions. Being three years old is awesome.
She really amazes me each and every day.

I love how kids are so litteral.
And how they make everything seem so the little river of rain water that flooded my backyard. Chunky said "OoooOOOOooo momma. Someone dumped a pool in our yard"

Where do they come up with stuff?

I know! Kids are too funny! They say the craziest things sometimes, yet it really makes sense if you think about it! :)

Love that the Chunkster said someone dumped a pool in your yard. Oh, to be a kid again! Everything is so magical when you're a kid. *sigh*
