Today is June 9th. The sun is shining, the sky is blue, my grass is green (in the spots that isn't still dead from the poo!) and my kids are running amok upstairs. Ah yes...the joys of summer!
My oldest son, Zack, has been waking up so early the last few weeks. He sees that it is light, which makes him believe it is time to arise. Ya right...it is light out at 5 am now! Perhaps I need to garbage bag his window....
My youngest son, Jesse, turned 3 on Saturday. I can't believe how fast it goes by! I still remember 3 years ago, being in my last week of pregnancy with him...the last 4 nights of counting contractions, the drive into the hospital to have him, all of the crap that went down to have him....*the doctor won't come in to do your epidural because he is too tired - he'll be in at 11 (it was 5 am at that point), getting my water broken, all of the poking and prodding, the non-stop exams to figure out why he was stuck, the discovery that his umbilical cord was wrapped around him, the split second decision to cut him out of me, the group of nurses quickly removing my jewelry and nail polish for my surgery, throwing up all over the nurse in the OR from that nasty little cup of crap they make you chug, having a panic attack because my spinal was up too high and I couldn't feel myself breathing, and then the wonderful moment where they laid him on my chest* Ah yes, still all so fresh in my memory!
Speaking of babies...my good friend had a little boy on the 4th! He is just so cute. I love fresh little babies! All the jerky movements, the gurggly noises, the toothless little mouths...SO CUTE! I do hope I will get the chance to spend more time with them before they move away this summer.
Speaking of summer....my cousin is going to be living with me for 2 months this summer! It should be fun - built in babysitter! Just kidding.... I haven't seen her in 2 years, so I am pretty excited. She's never played Wii, if you can believe that! I will have her addicted to it by August, I promise!
Speaking of August.....we will have lived in this house for 1 year in August. That hasn't happened since Jesse was still a baby. The longest we've lived in one place (since Jes was a year old) was, well, the 10 months we've lived in this place. How sad is that! And now there are talks to move us to Calgary. UGH! I should open my own U-haul :)
But I can't be too glib about things....after all, today is June 9th. The sun is shining, the sky is blue, and god-willing, my grass will be green again one day :)
