I've been on a recuperative sabbatical, of sorts. Had some sort of Mama-ain't-happy funk for a couple of days.
Today was full of different things.
Some new, some old.
Card games. Reading and spelling (strictly the children's idea, of course.)
Star Wars. (Movie 1 and re-enactment)New books.
Trev read me a story. Never mind that the story didn't match the letters, it matched the pictures. And a very interesting tale it was!Madeleine braved the skateboard. On the carpet.Should I pass up low-rise skater-pants jokes?
Mr. Potato Head.
Cleaning, jumping, playing in the sand, taking care of Harold (er... her name has been changed to Lucy since Trev is convinced that she's a girl - she likes the fancy shell.)
Mama's got the front half of the house clean, and some happy-family oils burning.
