I haven't been blogging as much as I'd like. I feel like I'm missing little moments I should capture on disk space. I try to remember cute and funny things the kids say and do, but most times, when it comes time for me to post, my old brain fails me.
Let's see. School is in full swing. Homework has started and I'm just counting the days until I'm stumped on how to help them with an assignment. I had a bad 'predicate' scene a couple of years ago, when, for the life of me, I couldn't think of what the hell a predicate was. I did get stumped on how to do a capital 'Y' in cursive yesterday. Emma outright rejected my version of the big 'Y', erased it and penciled in her own little goal-post-looking Y, with a bit of an attitude.
Along with school comes extra-curricular activities and we're trying to decide on those now. The girls will do art again this year and it looks like Emma will do soccer in the fall and Anna will try out for the middle-school basketball team. For now, I'm enjoying the fact that we're activity-free for the next couple of weeks.
John M. has a little bit of a cough lately, because many of the kids at the babysitters are sick and the germs are making the rounds. He's been loving watching 'Madagascar' and gets really peeved if I sing to any of the songs or God forbid, try to dance to them. He's saying so many new things now, I can't keep up. This morning, he pointed at my car keys and said 'keys' and I didn't even know he knew that word. He also likes to tell me 'I weady!' when he's ready to go somewhere. His buddies are back at daycare and he's happy about that. (Their moms are teachers and had the summer off).
And last, but certainly not least (and y'all are sworn to secrecy on this one), Aunt Flo is at my house again, and it's not me she's here to see.
Someone help me . . please ;)
