Back in Full Force...or Something

OK - I have been absent for quite awhile. In fact, part of the reason is because I could not get my background switched. I needed my computer-savy husband's help. And, since he figured it out, I am back sans St. Paddy's background.

We are home today, on what would normally be a summer workday, because Mia has strep throat. However, her strep is certainly not preventing her from making Cole laugh and cry simultaneously as she entertains/antagonizes him endlessly. I just sit and watch it all transpire.

We were just eating lunch, and Mia said, "Mommy, next Christmas I want to sing the Charlie song." I had no idea what she was talking about, so I tried to get her to sing a little. She sang, quietly, "Tis the season to be Charlie." Ah, I love that girl! She recently had her first dance recital, and I could not have been more excited to watch her!

And, at preschool, Cole has moved into the bigger boy class. He now sleeps on a napmat and follows the same schedule as the other kiddos. It is bittersweet for me. I want him to grow up, but it makes me so sad each time he hits a milestone. He may still be a tiny little guy, but he definitely has a mind of his own!

So, back to watching/refereeing the children.
