"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined." Henry David Thoreau 

On a daily basis I could eat our girls up I love them so. Everyday Olive becomes more squeezable and I can't stop kissing her cheeks. Maddie is becoming more aware of lines she can and can not cross. Her vocabulary is improving daily and so is her understanding of time out & spankings. If she's done something that earns her either one, she will stop to look at me and start waving her darling wave and say "hi! hi! hi!". I'm telling you, she ain't no dummy.... she knows being cute can get her out of punishments or at least lessen the sentence. We can already tell Olive is the thinker and Maddie is the go-getter. Our very own Bonnie and Clyde. 

I recently heard about the article written in the Rolling Stones about 'Sexting, Shame and Suicide'. It's based on the story of the 15 year old who killed herself after being sexual assaulted at a party. I can't get it out of my head because more than anything I want our girls to know who they are and have the confidence to stand up for themselves and what's right.
