Recently, Riely and I have been working on numbers and counting. She's done really well with the exception of always thinking 18 comes after 11. But don't all little girls have that mindset? I'm 11 going on 18...
Yesterday I had a bunch of picture frames laid out on the floor of my office and she was counting each one. Then she proceeded to tell me that while four of the frames had photos in them, three of them did not. I was surprised by her calculations and said, "That's right! You are so very smart!"
To which she replied, "Yes. And I'm funny, too!"
So today kicks off March Madness and the NCAA basketball tourney. Do you have your bracket filled out? This year I am bucking tradition and not picking my beloved Blue Devils to win. As devoted as I am to Coach K, I just don't think it's in the cards for them this year. Plus I am tired of being razzed by my Duke-hating hubby whenever they don't make it to the finals. It will be a heated Final Four, since both Mike and I picked UNC and UCLA to be the last game. He's got Carolina winning, while I picked the Bruins. Nothing like a little competitive rivalry to spice up a marriage.
Have a wonderful Thursday!
