    The big boys and husband built a very nice dock in our pond Sunday.

    difficult child 2 was present, and actually did help quite a bit. It was a good day.

    As he and I were walking to the house for drinks, he asked me to run. I said no, I wanted to just walk. He, of course, asked why.

    "Because I'm old, fat, and lazy" I said.

    He stopped, turned, and looked and me for a moment, and then said, "Mom, you're not fat!"

    Good news, ladies! I'm just old and lazy!

    Oh, what a sweetie! It's funny because I respond the same way when I am asked by my kids to run. I usually start with saying, " I don't run well, cause I'm old and fat!"

    difficult child has figured out that women like to be called young, so if he is feeling real smart, he tells me I look like I am 17. The other day, he said I looked like I was 18. I asked him why I got older, he said everyone has to get older.
