Brothers

I wasn't planning on posting today, but I am sitting at the computer doing other things and the boys are being just so cute! Both are down for bed (they share a room), but Christopher is talking and playing with a light-up musical toy and Michael is playing make-believe in his new bed tent. I keep hearing random statements about gorillas and Mickey Mouse fun (it's a Mickey Mouse clubhouse tent). SO I have had 2 revelations: 1) I am SO lucky to have a GREAT daycare where Michael learns more than I ever would have thought he could at 3 yrs old. They have been studying zoo animals leading up to a field trip on Friday. I SO wish I could go, but I only have 1 sick day left at school. Casey is going to go with Michael and his class. and 2) I hope the boys are great playmates the rest of their lives. They have so much fun together right now. I know, I know, wishful thinking... but I can hope for the best! We saw a mom with 6 kids tonight at Chick-fil-a and they were all playing together and taking care of the younger ones. That mom HAD IT ALL TOGETHER! I guess you HAVE to with 6 kids. But still, 6 kids 11 and under and she went out to eat alone with them. What a strong lady! Back on topic - I hope our kids are good playmates too : ) I love to see them interact.

Saturday, June 4th is my last day of school and Sunday, June 5th is our joint birthday party for the boys in Spartanburg! Michael is 3 and Christopher is 1 ~ where did the time go? : )

It is so nice to be able to enjoy the simple things, like your boys playing together.

I don't know if that woman with 6 kids had it all together or not, but I think some structure and help comes with having so many kids. We all have our struggles. I do know that now my daughter is entering the terrible twos that I am more appreciative of the times that she choses to be good instead of a wild child.

It is amazing how fast time goes! Happy birthday to both of the boys! I know it will be extra special, especially for Christopher to turn one. Hope you have a great summer!
