I was in my bathroom this morning, moisturizing and such when I looked down in to the sink and saw some dark hair and thought, “Oh my goodness, who’s hair is THAT??!?!” I promptly raised my head and looked in the mirror and remembered it was mine.
Little G has been a challenging child lately. I always say, and will continue to, that THREE is WAY worse than two. Because it so is. One moment he is sweeter than pie, piercing my heart with those big hazel eyes and the next he is out of control and beating on his brother and I want to send him to his room for eternity. With a few snuggles in between. Why must it be this way?
Yesterday The B Man told me that he no longer wanted to be a part of our family because I reprimanded him for talking about “poops and farts” (the ENTIRE drive home from school, btw). But once I let him decorate the Christmas tree for his and his brother’s room he was cool with being a part of this family again.
Tim put the Christmas tree up on Sunday and it still sits in our living room with just lights and garland. Nary an ornament to be found. Tomorrow night will be the first time we will find time to put them on the tree as a family. I’ve decided we are TOO busy. Meaning we need to reduce the “busy”. Gah.
Baby K is a complete toddler. I got her some new jeans over the holiday and she looks so sassy in them and I can’t even believe how she asks for things and how we understand each other already and how fast she got here.
And on a completely different subject, I’m feeling a little “BLAH” lately and I’m just not sure why. It may have to do with the fact that I’m pretty sure that this Christmas is going to be the five of us only. And although that may sound simply divine to some, to me it sounds just… well… not right.
When I was a child and teenager EVERY Christmas was spent with extended family. Grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins. We prayed and ate together and opened gifts together. Every year. So to have just the five of us just doesn’t seem right to me.
And then there’s the blog here.
I still blog for me but then I also feel that maybe this blogging thing has run it’s course. That my site here is no longer that appealing since I don’t give things away every day or I’m not pregnant or ever going to be again or that I’m not modern or hip enough with my words or even my design.
I just missed my “blogiversary” (it was four years on November 28th) and I’m about to post my 1000th post (!!!) but still, I’m feeling a little melancholy about it all.
I think most people’s time is spent on twitter and or Facebook, or in other ways these days, and that I’m just not relevant enough to this community anymore. I mean there are SO many blogs out there these days. I can’t keep up!
And, if YOU continue to hang around here and care about what I have to post, thank you, but you may see things take a down turn for a while.
On the upside, I ran 3 MILES straight this morning and well, that has never happened before InMyLife. So, at least there’s that.
All this to say, life is busy and FULL, in a good way.
And right now I think I’ll go snuggle a kid.
And since I don’t fit in a crib (I’ve lost weight but not that much!), hopefully whichever boy child I choose doesn’t mind…
Oh and here’s a pic of the boys with their “best Christmas tree ever!!!” Christmas tree. Damn they’re cute.
