Sean must have realized today that he has nipples on his chest. He’s never questioned them before. He asked me if he could have the doctor take them away. I told him that it wasn’t possible, and that daddy has them too, as does Mackie. He didn’t question if I had them… as I am not ready to talk to him yet about why girls are different than boys. So not ready yet. He’s only 3. Smart for 3, but still only 3.
Today was a little bit of a long day, as the boys were restless in the house. They both didn’t have daycare today, and I stayed home with them. After running around all weekend and keeping busy, I decided to keep them in today. Plus, they were calling for rain (though it did never rain – that I saw).
I realized today that it’s super hard to give both kids a bath at the same time. I much prefer doing it when Jamie’s home, and each of us take care of one child. It took a lot of talent to do them both at the same time, but I managed to wing it for today. Next time, I’ll wait until Jamie gets home from work to give them both a bath (at the same time).
Tonight I finished reading Holly’s Inbox. Finally. (Almost 700 pages). I really enjoyed it. It should have been a lot faster of a read, but I haven’t had a lot of reading time. I’m actually trying to make more time to read in my life. Because I love to read. I recommend this book if you like to read chick lit – because that’s exactly what this book is. It was as if I was peaking in on her emails, and reading what was going on in her inbox – which was kind of fun. I’d read books before that had email dialogue in them – but never the entire book in email style. That was a lot of fun. I recently learned that Holly Denham is a pen name for the guy who wrote the book, Bull Surie. I had no idea that it was a male who wrote the book, until I was already into it. I would have never have guessed. I picked up this book on sale at a book store in Florida that was closing. I had not heard of it before, and liked what I read on the back. It was definitely worth the sale price, but I’m not sure (even though I enjoyed reading it) that I would have paid full price to read it. Now… what to read next? So many books to choose from… (so little time!)
Happy Birthday Bea! I can’t wait to meet her soon. This year I actually get to hand deliver her birthday gift. (A lot more fun than mailing it!!) She’s going to be meeting me at the airport in Vancouver when I fly down to stay with Cynthia, and I’m finally having that Craft/Knitting/Girls week that I have been thinking/dreaming about for months. It’s going to be a great week, and I’m very excited to be sharing it with both Bea & Cynthia. We’re going to be doing a lot of sightseeing/crafting/thrifting/knitting/crocheting/quilting… you name it. Cynthia’s already emailed me the tentative itinerary (we left it in Cyn’s hands, since it’s her hometown) and I can’t wait for the trip to happen already. I definitely need a change of scenery for a bit, and this trip is going to be just what the doctor ordered. A little R&R mixed in with a little hustle of the city. (I love Vancouver). This trip can’t come soon enough. Really. Vancouver, I hope you’re ready for me. I’m ready to come!
