I thought and thought about what to call this blog. I had a name all picked out, then discovered someone was already using it - grr! So I thought about all my favourite books, movies, songs, band...I finally came up with I Think Magic's in the Learning. I figure there are two people I sent the link to who will recognize it. Am I wrong? Do YOU know where the title came from?
Anyway, as Daniel Cook says, here we are! (and if you know who Daniel Cook is, you obviously live in Canada and have small children). Here's what's up with my monsters:
Sammie actually got off the bus with a big smile on her face today. She's 4 and is in school for half days now.

This is somewhat frustrating.
Rylee is sleeping, which, along with eating and crying, is about all she does. She is five weeks old and sleeps a lot more than I'm told one month olds need to sleep, but I'm not complaining. I wouldn't be blogging if she didn't sleep. When she's awake, she pretty much cries or eats. However, we've had a major breakthrough t
