Didn't quite mean to disappear like that. The way I've been writing lately I doubt I was missed.
I've had a hard time making my brain work during my discretionary time.... plus our internet's been down since Wednesday.

Sir O has started carrying the Captain around by his armpits or ankles. I'm not allowed to blink or he's liable to be dragging him off to some corner. This morning Sir O got the captain out of his highchair while I was doing the dishes.

I'm learning that I have to be a meaner mom if I'm going to teach this child anything. Bummer. {He "painted his nails" with his watercolors last night... go figure}Gearing up for my Ikebana class next week, continuing the eternal quest for balance in maintaining my home, and just now remembering that I left a load of towels downstairs in the laundry room... ciao!

Yikes! I don't think Peanut realizes picking up Wingnut is a possibility. Yet. The vary idea makes me nervous.

I missed you! :) Balance is a constant struggle at every stage of life, I've decided. I use to think it would just magically get better, but it doesn't. We just try the best we can. That would be scary to have one child pick up the other one behind your back all. day. long. Someday you'll have a nice yard and you can kick them all outside for sometime each day (at least with good weather!) Take care. :)

Welcome back! Sorry your life is so exasperating. In a way I'm glad Caleb is not old enough to fully understand what he could possibly do to or with his little sister. Like HSF said...yet. I don't know how I would get anything done

Oh, seeing pictures of the Colony made me miss it, a little. But of course we miss the people in the Colony a lot.
Thanks for the nudge to post :)
