Loving Today....

Today I am loving...

....listening to the boys playing house. " I'll be the dad. What's wrong Son? Cheer up Son? Do you know what that means? It means get happy." W the dad.

....walking with the boys from school in the balmy 0 degrees. Ahhh...this is what winter is all about!

...computing in the dark while the boys play happily downstairs.

...a laugh from the boys while saying a tearful goodbye to my favorite husband. We were saying our good byes I looked behind me to see the kitchen island wrapped in yarn which was still attached to a cowl I am knitting. "Who did it?" W - R! and R says, "Nope! Not me!" It was the little denial artist.

...W telling his daddy that he will write a special letter to Santa to bring Daddy something good since he's going to work

...W telling me I can sleep in his bed by myself to help me feel better.

It's an emotional, heartsy, happy Monday. How was your day?

Time Lapse

Wow. It's been a long time since I've posted. Life is just getting in the way I guess. So prepare yourself....this just may be a long, rambling post....or not.

But give me just a minute. I need to tuck my kiddos in for their afternoon nap and then rant as to how much I hate 5 o'clock mornings and the behaviors it brings.

What's going on with RWB?
- W: loving kinder. Reading a little!!! Keeping me stumped in regards to sleep, hyerpactivity, Red Anger, etc.
- R: funny little man, monkey see monkey do in regards to mimicking his big brother; challenging us in regards to meds as he refuses to take them and can be so completely stubborn, hoping to get a new workup with Neuro soon. We're hating Keppra as I'm sure it's the Keppra that contributes to his stubbornness and completely inconsolable melt downs. We shall see....

B & Me:
- getting ready for Christmas and changes. B is changing jobs which will mean a different kind of work schedule. amazing to experience through the eyes of our 5yr old. W fully believes and is incredibly sweet and inspiring to watch. Want to dazzle your little one's? Get Santa to send them a message! Bup just tells us, "I don't like Santa." Which goes along with...."I don't like God."
W wanted to pray in front of the Christmas tree so the three of us knelt in front of the tree and each said a little prayer. W's was about taking care of Santa and Rudolph. Mine was about taking care of the boys. R's turn...he turned to me, half climbed on my knee with his little folded praying hands and said,
"I don't like God Mommy."

And I...will leave you with that!:)
