Here's Katherine in the Easter dress her Moms and Paw Paw sent her. Actually, the postal workers were less than energetic about delivering the package, so we just got it last week. It can be her Khmer New Year dress, I suppose. She's sitting up on her own now, scooting around her mat like a little soldier, and eating cereal and yams from a spoon. One of her more amusing developments is the motorcycle noise she makes, complete with shifting to higher and lower gears. Aww, mama's little Super Cub...
On a more grown up note, I have recently applied a Chhengism to my understanding of maintaining a happy marriage: good credit. The idea, to be sure, is not missing from any marriage manual Dr. Phil would endorse, but this metaphor, well, I like it. Chheng originally used it in reference to a student who, as a result of overt disobedience, had earned "bad credit." But it occurred to me how important it is to continually build up good credit with Bill and not just avoid transactions against my account.
Not only this, but I also need to be quick to recognize his efforts toward good credit, and apply said efforts to his account. How frustrating is it to make a payment, only to have it lost in the mail?!
There you have it. Deep thoughts from a girl who knows how to use a credit card.
