Today we held a yard sale. It was a circus. Of course my husband had scout stuff to do that I didn't know about but I should have expected because why not? So I was trying to run a yard sale with four kids running around and the temperature steadily rising and the shade steadily disappearing. At 1:00 Carl called to say he was on his way home and I told him to pick up the sign on his way. We were tired, hungry, and sunburned and just wanted to go in to the A/C.

Last month when we were visiting Aunt Itsy and her family, Cadie tried to get in the dirt pile while Uncle Danny was sweeping. Instead of telling her no, he started saying uh-oh Cadie, uh-oh. I laughed and said, does that work better than 'no'? But actually, it did work. So now whenever she starts getting into something, we tell her uh-oh Cadie, uh-oh. Of course, she just thinks it's funny, but at least she pauses for a few seconds to laugh at us. That's when we run to get her out of the dishwasher, off my sewing table, or away from the garbage.
