Stuart is 5. We tell him that he will drive a Studebaker when he grows up.
He says he's going to drive a dump truck.
Last week he told me while watching birds while I was driving, "If I was a bird I would fly all the way to Grenada."
He is very obsessed with highways and the turnpike. "Are we on the highway?" he can be heard yelling from the backseat.
This morning he said, "Mom said her legs are going to make her die." I gave him a funny look and it turns out that I did say, "My legs are going to be killing me tomorrow," as I was helping Nate put the flags in the ground and did a lot of squats.
Olive spends most of her days toddling after me with her coat in her hand. She just started to say, "go outside."
The other thing she says all the time is, "Hold It!" which sounds more like, "whole lit!"
It was one of those things I realized I am saying all the time.
I was telling someone about this and they did not even know what I meant by this phrase and then I was even more humbled. I just taught my daughter to say something so dutchy that commoners don't understand it.

When I was a
teenager, I’m going to guess 16 or 17 years old I had a low moment while
reading one of those junk mail flyers and I ordered a bottle of pills called, “Fat
The company, being very discreet, sent the package to a certain L. Zimmerman. My poor Dad his name is
Lester and when this package came for L. Zimmerman he tore it open and thought
someone sent him “Fat Busters” as a hint to lose weight. The bottle was really
corny looking with a huge fireball on it. I’m not sure how long it went until
he mentioned this at the supper table one night and I had to confess (oh the
shame) that I had ordered them. I’m pretty sure I never took them.
You might have heard
of Plexus by now. I’m taking it and I’m a fan.
The slim tastes great, has lowered my blood pressure, made
my cycle more regular, and best of all has eliminated my sugar cravings. I
would take it for that reason alone.
I started taking Slim because I struggle with crashing blood
sugar. Also there was the hope of losing weight. I was not serious enough about
my diet when I began and there was not an amazing weight loss for me. It did
help with my crashing blood sugar.
I went off of slim for a few weeks before I asked my midwife
about taking it and was so ready to get back on it.
The same time I started back on it I also cut sugar completely
from my diet and limited carbs. This is when I started taking ProBio5. Maybe it was adding the ProBio that
helped to take away my sugar cravings. I’m not sure but I do believe that if
you are taking Plexus products you should eat clean and drink a lot of water.
You don’t want to waste a good thing. I know for myself I saw a huge difference
when I got more serious about my diet.
Please don’t feel like you need to take Plexus if there is
nothing wrong with you. It seems like everyone is taking it these days and I do
get silly sometimes because anytime I hear about someone’s health I can’t help
but think, “Try Plexus.” It feels funny that it helps so many different
problems. Do some research on gut health related to the brain and body and you
will find that so much of this is related.
Plexus products have helped people with:
Candida (gut health) taking
care of a yeast overgrowth takes care of a lot of other issues.
High or low blood sugar
I’m sure I forgot something really important. Plexus
products are all natural. They are not approved by the FDA. I’m not sure about
you but I don’t trust the FDA anyhow. It’s not like you are going to feel
awesome on it after one day. Some people do see results that fast but it is a
healing process. I like to think that once my body heals I can cut back or stop
taking the products. For instance it is recommended to take 4 ProBio capsules if
you are fighting off a yeast overgrowth and only one or two to maintain. There is a 60 day money back guarantee.
