I started watching my neighbors kids for a little extra $, she has 2 twin girls almost 3, and a 5 yr boy. It has been good, and challenging, R and L are really enjoying it, J and I are looking forward the the extra spending money!
J's schedule has been all out of whack with work, constantly changing daily, but we have had some nice unexpected days to hang out, so that is awesome.
R got to take b-day cookies to school on friday, always so excited to bring goodies to school to celebrate himself!
Today was his 8th birthday!!! I'm a little worried that life is going way to fast for me to keep up. Where did my little boy go? Here is this wonderful, responsible kid that makes me laugh every day, who I marvel at and am so greatful to be his Mom,! How can he all of a sudden not be my baby that needs me all the time? Why does life do that I wonder...
I was going to try my hardest to make him the coolest homemade pokemon cake ever seen. Then he let me off the hook when he saw a pic. of a chocolate chip cheesecake and decided that was what he wanted for his b-day cake! Homemade of course, so thats what I made him, we LOVE cheesecake! I made some choc cupcakes for the kids that don't like the delectable peice of heaven in my spring form pan...
This morning he told me, I fell asleep 7 and woke up 8! He loves the DS games he got the best, and other gifts, but he also likes the baptism theme presents as well--new church clothes, learn to play hymn book, Gospel Standards poster, and a green scripture bag.
I panicked a bit over this weeks school work, but got it all done and turned in with just 30min to spare, that was close! I got hopelessly addicted to some new books. I read the 1st one in 10hours! I loved it! Told J that it was my new fave. Then when he got home that night he had the 2nd in his hands for me! I've made myself slow down for the 2nd one, savor the flavor I guess to last me until I get book 3
My digital camera broke, so am relying on my film camera, now have a little baggie accumulating film, need to just develop it someday so I can post some pics!
L is learning how to deal with conflict. I tell him if someone does something you don't like, say, Stop!!! Then later I heard him tell a boy that would pick on him sometimes, " I won't love you if your mean to me, so you better be good!" It was so funny, then I had to clarify a few things to L about dealing with others, and still loving others, what a cutie!
Life...Rocks, that's how I'm feeling right now.
