You've only been gone for 4 hours and you've already missed so much.
Cash smiled at me. He was staring at me so I looked down at him and a giant smile slowly lit up his whole little face. (Isn't it crazy how each milestone is just as special with each kid as it was with the last? Well....maybe not as special as it is with the first, but who remembers that far back anyway, right?)
Kayleigh got a scholarship to BYU! But she probably texted you at the same time as me, so maybe you didn't miss that.
You missed three emotional breakdowns from Gwen already and she has only been home for an hour. She also walked to dance class all by herself for the first time. I walked across the street with her and watched her until she turned the corner. She skipped for a minute and it was cute.
We lost Max for a little bit. He got a ride to school and I figured he was getting a ride home too. But then I wasn't sure and after Gwen had been home for half an hour I started to wonder if it is ever a good idea to assume anything. (I didn't want to call his ride because if she didn't pick him up I didn't want her to feel bad. Who decided it was a good idea to entrust me with children?) So I drove to preschool but he wasn't there. When I got home he was here with his little friend. They both had chocolate all over their faces and hands.
It is a nice day so I started to rake up the leaves in the back that are suffocating our lawn. After awhile I heard "That's a goooood mudpie!" from the front yard. And then the babe started to cry inside...so maybe we could finish it up together tomorrow?
And now I have to go get ready to go listen to Jason Chaffetz.
Does anyone have any good ideas for keeping little boys entertained that don't involve tv or messes? Max has had an eventful week and I don't know how much more I can handle. I still have to wash the ink off his walls and the toothpaste off of his couch. (And out of Gwen's hair.) I need suggestions from real moms with real boys.
