Don't answer that.
It's been a long time. I'm not sure why. Maybe I'm not giving myself enough time to think? Maybe there hasn't been much to write? There's never a shortage of crazy circumstances at my disposal but maybe since it feels a little bit normal I think you wouldn't care? Hmmm.
Maybe God is working and some of my ranting would truly be interrupting what He's telling me?
I think it's that one. Or probably a combination.
I have a few interesting facts to share with you today and then I'm off to bathe/clothe everybody, (with their Daddy's help-he's home yippeee,) including Joy who just started eating banana bread for breakfast, mac n cheese/ravioli for lunch, and little pieces of what we're eating for dinner along with her formula. What a milestone for us as a family when the smallest person eats big people food. It's been a long time coming. She eats lots of baby food too but seems much more excited when she can pick up her food and feed herself. If you've been around here for any amount of time you remember that Charlie didn't feed herself until around 14 months. Which might explain my excitement over Joy's newest trick. I thought Charlie would never even like real food much less feed it to herself. And now she eats her grilled cheese just like her brother without batting an eye. Time marches on. They learn new things and before long they're all in Kindergarten.
Well time hasn't gone that fast. For the first time in about three and a half years, I'm not counting down the days until they all go to school. I'm enjoying the days around here much more than I used to. Not feeling as overwhelmed and in awe of how much more energy one has when one is not growing a new baby. When Joy hits nine months in a few weeks, I will hit a milestone too.
Nine full months is the longest I've been married and not been pregnant.
Yesterday Ty learned how to set off the alarm on the house. It was pretty funny. And pretty loud so I'm guessing he won't do it again. I think it scared him to death that he was responsible for the blaring noise for those few minutes before we realized what had happened and turned it off.
One more thing-we're thinking about taking the big kids to the rodeo this year. Thoughts? Suggestions?
I'm all ears.
