A Weekend Alone

I have a rare (and by rare I mean like unicorn rare) weekend completely alone. I loooove my family, but nothing beats some solid alone time and the ability to sleep diagonally if I choose to do so.

If anyone is looking for me, I'll be spending every spare second of the weekend here with no one asking me for a. single. thing.

M: "Mommy, when you're little and I'm big, I'm going to take care of you."
Me: "That's so sweet hunny, but Daddy and I won't be little kids again."
Long pause...
M: "Oh, right. Well maybe you'll be a little old lady."
Me: "You're absolutely right buddy."

{Thanks Katrina Massey for reminding me of the importance to also document his words.}

Splitting Time

Trying to sneak in quality time with this one whenever I get a chance.

I remember someone telling me that the hardest part of having two kids was splitting time. I feel like it's already challenging, even with my mother here helping us. It's like there is too much love for everybody and not enough time to show it. Does that make any sense?

Well, anyway... I loved building towers with Forrest today. And hey, I'm sitting on the floor again.

Ice Cream To Thank Him

This morning while I was half asleep laying in bed, Titus came into my room and asked if he could change Cosette's diaper. I said sure so he took her into the girl's bedroom. I remembered we'd just put a live video camera in there so I started watching them on my phone.
This morning while I was half asleep laying in bed, Titus came into my room and asked if he could change Cosette's diaper.
Cosette is at the stage where she doesn't stay still so I watched the funniest scene play out of Titus taking off a poo diaper and screaming because she was rolling around. He wrangled her to wipe her and struggled to get her to stay still long enough for him to put a new one on. It made me laugh so much. It also made me proud because he knew she needed her diaper changed and I wasn't up yet, so he took initiative to take care of it. He also worked really hard to accomplish the task.

He's my wonderful, responsible, caring seven year old. We took him for some ice cream to thank him.

All By His Own

"Mummy, please can I make my own toast?" - Albie, age 4.
From finding the food to spreading the jam,
managed to do this all "by his own" (his words).
