2. I love thunder in the night while I sleep. Thunder in my thighs,
not so much.

10. There is beauty in the least beautiful of things.
11. Stuart sometimes calls me Frenchie or Frenchie La Rue and I have no idea why.
12. Holding a pencil in my mouth makes me gag.
13. Down Syndrome, autism, Williams Syndrome, etc. is a diagnosis not a definition.
14. Laughter is medicine with no crazy side effects.
15.Cupcakes flirt with me.
16.I think it is perfectly normal to be reading 3 or 4 books at a time.
17.Beauty and the Beast is still being watched 30x a week here in our hood.Caroline still claps and cheers "it's working, it's working!" when Maurice's invention is successful.
18. Life is too short to be serious all the time.
19. God blesses me 
20. If I have a bad dream, I won't tell it out loud. I don't want to give Satan any ideas.
21. These WIKFS posts look very much the same as my bullet point posts.


  1. I would love to be called Frenchie La Rue. Or Pippa, since the royal wedding. too! #16. no way. #20 good idea, never thought of that.

  2. Numbered or bullets, they all make me laugh Frenchie! I watch tv, blog, read and try to have a meaningful conversation with my husband... I call it multi-tasking!

  3. Aaaaah! So it's Frenchie La Rue now?? I can't imagine what it will be next.... Caroline, don't worry, I will watch B & TB with you. I love that movie - one day she will be embarrassed about her obsession. With my daughter it was The Little Mermaid.... Now she doesn't believe it! My son won't admit that he loved "Lady and the Tramp"! Haha. When they watch them with their own children they will remember the magic!

    And I gag when I hold a pencil in my mouth! I didn't realize it until you pointed it out. Does that mean we are related??? Ann

  4. A question, Frenchie: How exactly does one play Little Pet Shop? We inherited a mess of them, and none of us know what to do.

    Also, I had a terrible dream last week and told Cory about it. (I like to talk about them because I feel like it somehow let's me know how truly ridiculous they are.) 48 hours later, he REMINDED me of it. I did NOT want to be reminded of it! Law.

    I dig your lists.

  5. #16? Umm,,, yeah! Need to get caught up on these WIKFS posts.


Thanks for reading my blather. I read every comment. They make my heart happy!
