Andrew got a Cyco Cycle for his birthday. I wasn’t sure about this weird thing-no handlebars?-but it is a hit. Patrick can usually be found hitching a ride on back.
I am all-pooled out for the summer. This little guy is not.
I could tell Sammy was really bugged that his food and water dishes were mismatched, so I bought him these. Aren’t they cute? I found them at TJ Maxx.
Isaac after school, conquering homework.
On the kid’s first day back, Patrick made a “nest” for us and I read 10 books over and over again until I started to garble words in my semi-nap state.
I am reading Whistling In the Dark right now and it is SO good. Really, really, really good. Like stay up late with toothpicks in your eyes good.
Andrew was staring at me hard the other day and then said this gem, really meaning to pay me a compliment.
“Mom you kind of do have a six-pack you know. Your forehead has one, with those lines.”
Oh, thank you dear boy.
Just what I needed in my old age.
A little pick-me-up.
