Two Moms and Dads

Derek has been asking why he doesn't have two moms and two dads like some of his cousins.  He really didn't think it was fair!  I tried to explain how lucky he is that he only has one mom and one dad and he finally seemed to accept it - until yesterday.  We were sitting at church waiting for stake conference to start and he suddenly said, "I do have two dads!"  I said, "You do?".  He said, "Heavenly Father and Dad"!  Sure enough!  He was pretty excited to realize that he wasn't being left out of the two Dad club.

Water dripping from the ceiling

Last Tuesday in the middle of the night Braden came into my room and said, "Mom there is water dripping from my ceiling." Well I of course was hoping that it was some kind of joke, but when we got down to his room sure enough there was water dripping right down over his bed. We couldn't figure out where it was coming from at 2:00 a.m. and so we gave up, turned of the main water into the house and went back to bed. Once we got up for the day it took a couple of hours to figure out that the water going into the toilet upstairs was leaking. It was an easy fix at the toilet, but Braden's ceiling is half gone now and we are drying it out before we start the big repair. It could have been worse!
