With week 3 of J's deployment fast approaching,
I thought I would post evidence of us having fun on day 19
...since we are still having fun
But, we have had
A lot of sulking
A lot of pouting
A lot of ATTITUDE....(even Riv has started the arms-crossed sass!)
But I digress...
Riv is kind of obsessed with our hand-me-down Cozy Coupe at the moment.
He doesn't go anywhere in it...just likes to sit
....have a little "guy time" I suppose.
If Paige is anywhere near it, he runs to it with full speed and jumps in like his life depended on it.
(Check out that physique!)
LOVE Paige's face in this one....funny girl!
I have been wanting to recover our chairs (again) for some time now, but really wanted to do it in something wipeable
(thanks P & R for always wiping your hands on our chairs)
....enter super bright and happy laminated cotton.
Goodbye very tired, although classic, black and white gingham...kinda.
I think they are much more cheery and happy, and they have stood up to countless cups of liquid, spaghetti sauce, blueberry smashings and dirty feet...
LOVE! And they got a new coat of white paint after these shots were taken, FYI.
And now, because I am totally sentimental this week, I leave you with a flashback from one year ago:
I really miss these kids...
REALLY REALLY REALLY miss them.
Last year was a lot easier than this year....
last year I didn't hear things like "You are ruining my life!" when I brush her hair out at night....
But I am learning to love where I am,
and make the most of these last precious years with the kids before I go back to work and the kids start REAL school...
I know I will miss these days just as much as I miss THESE days from last year.
