I love when Isaac texts me from college. I know he misses us but loves college too and it’s so nice to hear from him and encourage him. He’s a darn good kid.
Janey was so good today. She slept in her bassinet today for 2 hours! That’s a small miracle. And she pooped herself out of 3 outfits, no joke.
I love good friends. Today I visited with one today, just for an hour, and we laughed and talked politics and Christmas and a bunch of other stuff. It was refreshing.
Today when I picked Abbey up she asked how my day was. I have found that what this means is “please ask me how my day was too” because something icky happened. She needed help with some friend drama and I just love that girl. And being a teenage girl is hard. Darn hard. Take the high road is what I always say, thanks to my super smart mom who taught me the same thing.
Matt was in a mad scramble to find a Halloween costume for a school event tomorrow. We decided to blindly pull things out of the costume bin and put something together and he did it. He is so flexible and gets the ‘big family” thing, and I love him for it.
Andrew and Patrick made us some popcorn after bath time. Popcorn is another one of Andrew’s specialty He told Patrick to “go get a train” as the popcorn was popping. I laughed because that is a little quirky thing Andrew loved to do when he was little. Put one of his beloved trains in the bottom of the popcorn bowl and watch it get buried as the popcorn covered it. I said, “Oh Andrew, really?” He said, “Mother I am just trying to relive the moments of my childhood, now that I’m a kid.” He cracks me up.
