Ashlyn's Ready to Walk

Guess who's cruising? Ashlyn is just about ready to walk and all smiles about it.

My Disguise

I was escorting Ashlyn up the forty steps to the third story. The staircase lights were off so the lighting was dim. Jake saw me dressed in black and said, "Oh! I just thought you were a soup-case!" (Suitcase)

Enjoying the Wait

The doctor office has a real tree and it smells fantastic! I have to say I'm enjoying the wait just a little bit extra today.

Cheeky Maddie

I found Maddie's socks shoved behind the toilet on the second floor bathroom. I told Gina not to move them and let me know if she sees anything else like that again. Turns out she's been doing it already. Punk kid. Now to find a proper punishment will be my next quest. I'm thinking up and down the stairs three times every night to make up for the stairs she skipped by being lazy.

Funny Zufelt Quotes

I found some awesome swim caps at Mustafa. A bright, bold pink shark with a dorsal fin sticking up on it. I knew Maddie would love it so I grabbed one for her and one for her girlfriend Anna since they are nearly always together and kept it for her birthday present this week. Maddie got hers for her birthday back in September.


This week we were at the pool with Anna’s mom, Ms Jennifer, discussing her birthday party plans. Maddie chimed in about the swim cap we were giving Anna then says to me in front of Jennifer, “Wait. Can we give her my old one?”

“No. Why?”

“Because I didn’t get to choose which one I wanted and I want the other one.” Turn on the attitude and what I call the flippy floppy body.

“No. That one’s used. We’re going to give her a brand new one.”
“BUT IT’S DRY! She can have that one.”

Jennifer was rolling on the floor laughing. “But it’s dry” has been cat called at me a time or two in the last few days. She even told another mom about it and said it was one of the funniest two things she’s heard the Zufelts say. The other? She’s Baptist and one of my best friends. She asked one day sincerely if we have the same ten commandments she believes. I don’t even remember my response but apparently I said, “We can kill, but other than that they are the same.” Cheeky girl I am.


Last night reading scriptures Brian helped Maddie with some new words, one of them was “two.” She retorts in a loud, defiant, don’t-lie-to-me sort of voice, “That’s not how you spell ‘too’!” Brian tells her it’s the number two. She considers, then smiles and carries on as if nothing happened.


Cake Request

I asked Jake what he wants on his birthday cake for tomorrow.
"Definitely my candle. 'Cause it's going to have FIRE!" Then he went on and on about keeping safe with a fire and singing and blowing the candle.
"Ok we will have a candle. Now what picture do you want me to put in the top?"
After much thought he decided he had his final answer. I was all ready for a complicated Disney character request or a fire truck or something that would take six different icing colors.
"I want a circle, tri-ang-uh-gull, rectang-a-gull and square." Later he decided to add an oval to the list. Now in thinking through how to make this shape cake look cool.
