Please don't Poke the Cheese
I just heard Matt say that to Ezra from the kitchen and wished I had saved all of those phrases we hear the kids say or we say ourselves to the kids.....Matt and Ezra are making an omelette. I will be making sweet rolls soon. Henry is talking to his nana.
We have pretty much decided to go to New York for the summer. Matt has wanted to go. The only qualms I had were missing my garden, missing friends here, having our own space and missing the freedom Henry has here. That is a lot of things to miss but I think the benefits of going to New York outweigh the benefits of staying behind. The garden thing is big for me but I will have more gardens and I can still garden in both places a bit. I want Matt to help his brothers build his parents house. I miss our community there. I love watching the boys with their grandparents/ aunts and uncles. Those are very important relationships for both of them. I think going to New York will allow some space that these two boys need.They have been fighting so much! Matty and I will be able to go on some dates....Maybe I will start yogging again. I made the decision yesterday when I was already fuming at 8:30 in the morning....I don't want to be this mommy!!!!AAAArrrggghhhh Why do theyr fight so much? I was sure I would have a Willameena and a Louisa who would quietly play with dolls. I know not every girl is quiet and easy but I have taught many little ones and there is a definite gender pattern.I don'thave any new pics so here is one of me in my new glasses which I am wearing all the time. Sometimes I feel like I am backsliding into my 7th grade ... awkward phase, crazy hair and glasses loud plaid shirts... Scary...
