just waiting on Heidi Nags.

oh, you don't know who Heidi Nags is?

well one time in college, i had an old boyfriend (not nato, for shame)over for easter. we were talking about "hiding eggs" for the kids and he kept thinking we were talking about this girl named Heidi Nags. so when we started the egg hunt, he was like, shouldn't we wait for heidi? and we were all confused.

he's like Heidi Nags. you guys have been talking about her all day. when we figured out that he had mass earwax issues and confused what we were saying, we all had a good laugh. and now we speak of heidi every year. we wait for her in anticipation. she is such a nice gal, bringing treats to all the children...i love her yearly visit. she's always so festive and well dressed, for sure.

this year's easter was glorious. each year, easter reminds us of the hope we have in Jesus. and it's maybe not a coincidence that nato and i got back back together a couple years ago around easter, so we could remember that hope in a tangible way. we both know we could be celebrating easter separately. but instead, the opposite happens...our entire extended families celebrated together: the browns and the whites. and no, those aren't last names. 

but ya, this weekend, like many of ya'lls, was fun and crazy. layne learned to ride his bike with no training wheels and i was so excited for the process. i thought it would take hours...and yet, 2 minutes after he was on his bike, he was riding by himself. smiling and laughing. and i was almost about to cry...because that's about all i'm good for these days. but i held it together. i had to...neighbors were surely watching.

here's a little video of layne riding...30 seconds of growing right before your eyes.

lila was napping while we were out there. that peanut is really growing up. look at that filipino nose. so cute. she's doing great in her big girl bed, btDubs. sometimes i go up there and she's vacuuming(with her mini pretend vacuume) at 10 pm... with boxing gloves on. she's our night owl.again, not good for the teenage years...

ok so this week is going to be wedding-filled. who knows if i'll post much or not. i have prayed that the Good Lord would let me deliver this child next week...NOT this week. i just need to get through the week...you know, send(PUSH) the bride off into the sunset and welcome(PUSH) this new peanut into the world. that's all that's on my agenda these coming weeks. maybe heidi nags will help this baby come early...one can only hope.

***ok, fixed the video!

  6. Dude Heidi Nags, I have no words. That is the best.

    Reminds me of a little story of my cousins {both girls} Someone mentioned they had heard that Huge Heffener married Via Twitter, and they were like who the heck is Via Twitter. That story makes me snort laugh every time I hear it.

    XOXO

    PS holy crude big boy status with no training wheels!

  9. 1. Good for you for choosing Nato over the guy who doesn't know what hiding EGGS is. Geesh. HA.

    2. Browns and whites made me laugh out loud.

    3. Lily is almost 6 and still doesn't know how to ride a bike. Lazy Mom? Maybe.

    4. May 20 would be a GLORIOUS day for a birthday for the new babe. She'd share it with Christopher C...Cher.. and ME! :)

    5. If your little doll wants to come vacuum my house late at night she can, I'll let her wear boxing gloves or fancy gloves, her choice.

    So, have a fun week with the wedding stuff and closing your legs extra tight.

    xo

  30. I was on a very slow computer when I first read this, so I couldn't comment, but I had to come back and tell you that this made me laugh SO hard. I think it's because I can completely see this happening in our family. Also, we tend to take jokes and run with them for years as well :)

    Heidi Nags - love it :)

  40. Ohmygoodness. Heidi Naggs.
    SO FUNNY!

    My family has quite a few jokes like that because of my older sister's ability to constantly overhear thing incorrectly :)

    I read over from Meg Duerksen @ Whatever that there's nothing hotter than a man teaching his kids how to ride a bike. Your thoughts?
    :)
