Best Valentine

Nicole told me on Valentine's Day that she never wants to live away from me because she would miss me too much...she made us both cry. She is so beautiful and loving. I told her she would always have a home with me even if she had ten babies..she quickly responded that we would need another room for all the cribs and that made me laugh.

Rascal Flats

Nicole is amazing at remembering lyrics to songs. Lately we have been listening to Majic 95.5 because there really isn't anything played on that station that she can't hear. Since they do a good bit or repeating songs, it is funny to see how quickly she picks up on songs. The most recent one she has been humming to and reciting parts of the song is Rascal Flats. You can see the video of the song here: http://music.aol.com/artist/rascal-flatts/429157/main and click on "What Hurst the Most" (In-studio).

In Her Shoes

I was watching In Her Shoes tonight to pass some time hanging with Benji dog and Cameron Diaz's character read this poem...

One Art

The art of losing isn't hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster,

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my mother's watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three beloved houses went.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn't a disaster.

-- Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan't have lied. It's evident
the art of losing's not too hard to master
though it may look like (Write it!) a disaster.

Elizabeth Bishop
