How is it that I’ve only written two blog posts in three weeks?
This picture sums up the only defense I have. Do you see that glint in her eye? That mischief brewing just under the surface? That firecracker just about to ignite?
Yup. That must be it. This girl is just so very two right now and it would appear, one only has so many words to spend each day and mine are all spent by the time she goes to bed.
“Get off of there please”
“Oh Emily. PLEASE GO TO SLEEP”
“Don’t bite your brother”
Ya da, ya da, yada….
The anthem of every mother everywhere. By the time they are asleep I have energy only to crawl to the couch and enjoy someone elses words.
These rainy summer days have been full though. Very, very full. Filled with cardboard cities for trains…
Reunions with the dearest of friends.
Filled with camping trips and quick visits to daddy at camp.Weddings and showers. A slightly bigger work contract (yahoo and YIKES). Visits with friends. Playing outside. Picking wildflowers. Hikes with cousins. picnics. Road-trips. Play dough. Trampolines. Bikes. Dirt. Finn McMissle. Swimming when the sun shines.
And did I mention the rain? La Nina I am not a fan.
But then again…one does need rain to make a rainbow…
And I’m left speechless yet again.
