Where to start? The boys are napping, or should I say "napping"? The quotes are really only meant for Kingsley who now pokes around his room for who-knows-how-many-minutes until he konks out for a good, solid nap. So, I am catching up on e-mail and friends' blogs and landed here, thinking I should write *something* with all that has been going on.
So much going on. My Mom and Dad's recent visit in March, Nana Susan's (my Mom-in-Law) visit this past week, Kingsley's 3rd birthday, and other various outings and adventures.
I'll catch up here, all in good time, I promise. But, I start with today. Once the boys went down for their nap I finished off the bag of Doritos (which I really don't like and rarely have), had a glass of wine, and ---just for good measure---finished all the peas I made for Charlie for lunch (which is actually a good portion, since he didn't eat any). Telling of our morning? Perhaps. Tantrum-land---for both. Yes, we are at that point where both are of the age. Yippee.
I feel bad though. I think Charlie's tantrums are the result of him being a bit sick. The start of a cold, I think. He had a low-grade temperature this morning and the 90 degree heat doesn't really seem to help. He has never been sick, so he is not used to feeling so blah (and I'm not used to him being so grumpy). Well, being sick means the sick one usually gets more attention. And, well, that doesn't sit well with Mr. Kingsley. Especially on the heels of Nana's visit (and much extra attention).
So, there you have it. I am going to go try on spring and summer clothes now. Do you ever do that? Play dress-up during nap time? I do. I put on all my pretty clothes (that actually fit now) and all my jewelry that I haven't been able to wear the past 3 years and think about where I could go for lunch in my stunning get-ups. I am being a bit wistful and a bit cheeky---since I really never got dressed up and went out for lunch pre-baby either. But, my day's coming baby----just you watch.
These pictures are from this past Sunday, not that long ago at all. Don't they look happy?
