Every once and a while I will sit the girls down with me before bed and have them just sit still and listen. Sort of trying them to open their ears. It will work for a while until Charlotte starts touching and looking at everything... however last night we moved from opening our ears to trying to sing 'row your boat' in round... it was very hard at first with the girls, but we slowly got better!

I am not sure about other Old Navy stores, but our store has a really cool projector/game/all around kid entertainer. This projector projects various images on the ground you then can interact with the image. Different pictures react differently however if you find youself in a store with kids that need entertainment, seek this fun device out. It's normally back by the clearance section!

However, it seems that the most common question that is asked is "why?".
Well its simple and here is the answer for all, as we all learned in grade school plants use carbon dioxide and water to make oxygen and glucose. Oxygen is released into the air (environmental plug is inserted here) while the glucose is used for the plant to grow bigger. Simple. This whole process is done by chlorophyll, which has a vivid green color.
Now when fall comes we obviously have less sunlight and less water. Forcing the tree to stop production of oxygen and glucose, forcing the bright green chlorophyll to go away and the leaves to show their true colors. Depending on the position of the tree to the sun, amount of water and temperature you will get different leaves turning different colors. And to add on to the craziness, the tree also gets rid of waste in the leaves as well during this time helping the color madness! So that is the very simple way of what is going on. Is there a better more scientific way to explain? Yes... but this will do.
If you are in a part of the country that had Fall colors... get outside and enjoy it. It only happens for a few weeks once a year. Its worth it!

I have heard some other unconventional ways to getting rid of them many crazy... but mouth wash on the hair? Come on...
So now that we have gone through our second round of lice in our house, we have learned a lot. First is first, lice is not a sign of uncleanliness or lack of hygene. You cross someone who has lice and one can either crawl to you or a 'nit' (an egg) gets attached to you hair or clothing. A louse can lay many eggs on or near the scalp and the hatching time is about 7 days. A louse cannot live without a host for around 24 hours. So no fear! It's a part of life, deal with it and then move on!
