For Real

We are officially in our second week of school.  Mr. Mom gave it a good try and now I am back.  You might say our days have been filled with unicorns and rainbows.  Or.  Well, there has rather been some weeping and gnashing of teeth, especially over English/Handwriting.  Poor kids.  The things I put them through.  I am fairly certain I have seen tears every day.

It is just so much more fun to play, you see.  We're finding our groove again and it feels good.  Yesterday I went to church for the first time in a few months.  It was great to be back.  I have missed the preaching and worship and people.

I am remembering that I like teaching these little fellas, and slowly I think they are remembering it is not all that bad.  If it weren't for having to do handwriting every day, we would be free of tears altogether I think.  But my sweet red head hates to write.  And his mama feels strongly that he needs to write every day of his live long life.

In other news, Saturday I had a lengthy one hour conversation with my five year old about his upcoming birthday.  Understand when I say upcoming, we have over half a year left until the big event.  And understand by conversation what I am really saying is he chatted non-stop the entire time about his big ideas.

Basically he wants fruit (strawberries, pineapple and cantaloupe). Is it just me or is it unbelievably cute that the kid requested cantaloupe for his party?  Please don't go thinking we're health nuts around here.  Although it was a proud mama moment for me, I do realize that this is the same child who has been eating Doritos and Popsicles for lunch.

He listed off every. single. person. hehasevermet to invite to the big event. 

The funniest part of the conversation was how he kept using the word "freakishly" to describe the detail.  He asked if we could turn the air down to make it freakishly cold so we could turn on the fireplace.  Heck yeah kid, what are parents for!  It is when the requests started getting outlandish that I started to get worried.  He has plans to move the fireplace to a different wall.  It was Ok when I said it would leave a big hole in the wall-his solution was to put the green wingback chair in the hole spot and that is where he could open gifts.

The rest of the requests include things of the Pokemon cake, icing cake, and moving the ceiling fan to a new location type of nature.

Yep.  It was a great conversation.  I hope to see you at the party late Spring of 2014 because you know you'll be invited.  Ha.
