I’m not even going to apologize for the embarrassingly long amount of time that has passed since I last wrote anything. I’ve been too busy being a mommy to write. Josh has been re-doing the bathroom (a one week project is stretching into 2+ weeks, but it will be beautiful when it’s done), and we had Grandmommy come visit last week. There’s nothing like having your mom all to yourself for a week to remind you how much you like having your mom around. We all miss her, but we made lots of good memories.
The kids are…well, they’re developmentally normal. Emmeline likes to be in charge all the time, and Gareth likes to scream and say “NO!” a lot. But here’s some of the adorable things they’ve done recently:
1. Emmeline is very emotionally intelligent. We were looking at a painting of an old man sitting by a fireplace, hunched over in a chair and holding a cane, and I asked Emmie if she thought he looked tired. She answered, “No, Mommy, I think he looks sad and lonely.”
2. Gareth was throwing a temper tantrum, and in a display of anger (he’s my dramatic child), he grabbed all of the pieces from the puzzle he’d been playing with and threw them, one by one, onto the floor. Then when he realized no one had been paying attention to his little fit, he quietly and calmly proceeded to pick up all the pieces and put them back in the puzzle.
Josh is seeing a zombie movie with a friend tonight because apparently the pleasure of my company isn’t enough for him, and he needs some guy time. Oh well. I’m eating all the Jeni’s ice cream without him. (That was a treat from my mom. Thanks, Mom!)
Speaking of Jeni’s ice cream, I wonder if I could get people to bring me a pint from Jeni’s every time they come to visit me.
I tried watching Broadcast News because Rashida Jones said it was her favorite movie in an Entertainment Weekly article, but I got 30 minutes in and realized it was boring. I need to find another chick flick to watch fast, before Josh gets home.
