Losing the nap, I think

Mack has been showing his tail in recent days on those afternoons that he has not napped.  I have let him stay up because he begs to be “with the girls.”  It is so cute. And then 3:00 comes.  Oh my. So the past few days I have been strict on making him nap.  What thanks do I get? A very wired little boy at 9:00pm.  He cries and cries at bedtime and then comes out of his room saying, “My eye hurts.”  I don’t know why he chooses his eye each time, but he does.  Josh let him come into the living room with us the other night.  He loved it. After forty minutes of playing and walking around and sitting with each of us, I asked him if he should go to bed now.  “No, my eye hurts, Mama!” Sure. Last night he came out of his room again.  Josh had to get some things together for a business trip, so Mack was hanging out in our room.  He ended up in my bed, laying his chubby face on my pillow.  He told me to get on my pajamas.  Then, he patted the pillow and said, “Here’s a spot for you, Mama.”  Such a kind child, offering to give me a spot on MY PILLOW. We talked with him for a while.  He is so very funny.  I tried to convince him that his bed was probably crying […]

Friday!

This morning the kids and I had fun with a friend and her kids.  The morning was gorgeous!  They left at lunch time; we ate lunch and then went outside again.  I washed off the porches with the hose and in the process the girls got soaking wet, of course.  Mack managed to stay half way dry somehow.  Josh came […]

South GA visit, Day Two

This coffee represents a wonderful part of the weekend.  Gran and PawPaw let Josh and I have the pool house to ourselves while the kids slept inside in a room in their house.  That means several things, one of which is I DID NOT HAVE TO BE THE ONE THAT MADE THEM BREAKFAST EACH MORNING nor DID I HAVE TO […]

South GA visit, Day One

We arrived on Thursday.  The kids were thrilled to get out of the car and run and play at Gran and PawPaw’s house.  They didn’t sleep much on the way down there, and Molly might have aske 8,534 times, “How much longer til we are at their house?”  But we made it safe and sound and that is what matters.
