Do you know this little gem of a veggie (or is it fruit)?
Have you tasted of it's goodness? If not, let me introduce you. Meet my friend Jicama. I realize it looks a bit scarey, but under that ugly, splotchy skin is a crunchy, delicious delight. And before going any further, I must thank my sweet friend Jen Crandall, 'cause she is the jicama queen. With her ready bag of it every summer at workshop, I discovered that this is a delightful little no calorie treat. Now, Jen, I may need a real lesson on proper jicama preperation, 'cause mine came out a bit messy.

And lastly...when the girls are driving me nuts and I need them to get out from under my feet, you know, I send them to our lovely dirt patch. So this morning Maggie was all kinds of screamy, so I finally said, how bout you go push your baby outside. She LOVES to push her stroller. So, she trotted right on out with Brooklyn following closely behind. Then scooted there babies back and forth for quite some time. It's really so freaking adorable. Especially because Brooklyn is SUCH a good little Mommy. She's always feeding, patting, wrapping in blankets, putting them to bed, worrying abou them. AND, she feels it is her personal job to make Max happy, which she does quite well at. She'll sit at the foot of the swing and talk to him, play with him, put his binky in, etc. This morning she kepts saying, "Come on Maxy, show me your happy smile." And when she started calling him Bubbers ('cause we do) it nearly killed me. It's a good thing she's cute and such a good helper, 'cause it really offsets her NAUGHTY side! Oh and she IS that!
