A submariner's son

On monday afternoon during what was supposed to be nap time I listened to my son playing in his room and once again I was suprised and laughing my ass off. This is the adventure I eaves dropped on.

"Get dressed"
"Go to store"
"I be back"

"AAAOOOOGAA. . .AAAOOOOGAA. . .DIVE. . .DIVE"

I swear it's moments like that that make me wish time would stop

Where does he get these ideas you ask???

Oh what a beautiful morning

I can't believe the morning I had. I was Riley's first day of school today and he even rode the bus. Yesterday he flat out refused to ride and today I managed to wrestle him into his seat and five minutes later the bus depot called and said that he was just fine. For the first 45 minutes I sat on the couch completely perplexed. What was I to do with all of this sweet freedom. Well it may not sound exciting to all of you, but I cooked myself breakfast, ate it without having to yell at anyone to stop trying to steal my food, I did the dishes, drank all my coffee without a toddler stealing any of it, left my bedroom door open without worry of a certain young boy going in there and emptying my jewelry box. I cleaned the living room without having to re clean anything vacuumed the floor without having to make sure I didn't run over any body's tiny toes. I cleaned the windows and nobody was right behind me smudging them up again. I emptied the dish washer and cleaned out the rabbit cage without any interference. It was amazing Oh yeah I even pulled weeds. It was awsome

This Boy


Never before have I been able to be so angry with someone and then be completely smitten a couple of hours later. This boy has the power to make me want to run screaming from the house and then later make me so happy it feels like my heart grew 10 times it's normal size. This boy changed my life in a way that can't be understood by anyone but a mother. This boy is a constant source of happiness and pride, surprise and amazement. This boy is a rewarding gift. This boy is proof of magic and miracles. This boy is love.

The sweetest thing

My brother and I didn't get along at all during our childhood. I would think it fair to say we hated each other. My mother says it was always that way, so naturally I was worried what would happed when we brought Riley home a sister. We got lucky and he loves her. She loves him too and it is really cute to see her watch him as he runs around the house and hearing her giggle while Riley jumps up and down in front of her makes me smile every time (I try to not to take it personally that she belly laughs more for him than me lol) but yesterday was the most adorable thing I had ever seen. Katy was starting to get upset in her exersaucer and Riley came over to check on her. She stopped whining and looked at her brother. He gave her a sort of half smile and she just broke out in the biggest smile. It just made my heart melt. I feel so lucky to have such wonderful and beautiful babies.
