Despite the general gloominess of my blog lately, things here are pretty darn good. Despite the fact that hubby is in bed looking simply puny with a temp of 101.5, and my kid is coughing like there’s no tomorrow, I’m doing really well. I had an extra day off work today and got a few things done around the house. I was able to buy a few Christmas presents (finally), and I was able to meet sme deadlines prior to leaving work for Thanksgiving. We’re planning a visit for this weekend to N.’s (hoping hubby starts feeling better by then).
My boy is growing strong and smart and knows important facts and states them way out loud to whoever will listen, “Pee comes out my PEEEnis. Poop comes out my BUTT!” Basic biology…check. He has a wicked sense of humor and can recite old time Bugs Bunny cartoons in proper voice. He sings funny songs like “old MacDonald had a shark” and loves all things football, baseball, soccer, and golf. And air hockey. And cars. And, and, and. Christmas is going to be soooooo fun this year. He looks through the toy catalogs on Sundays and goes over it a million times, “What’s THAT? I want THAT! What’s THAT?” He told Santa he wanted power tools 😉 He knows that someday he will play for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and will tell anyone who asks that “Kentucky is YUCKY!” He’ll say the same about Dallas Cowboys. He’ll also let you know (as his grandmother told him,) that his Daddy brainwashed him.
There are a hundred times a day that are just plain hard. Potty training has gone three steps forward and 90 steps back. I lose my temper sometimes and of course, my patience. But then I am remeinded that my buddy likes hot chocolate, and wants nothing more than to go outside and play even though its 32 degrees, and raining, and that Buzz Lightyear boots make the world go round, and my heart melts.
I don’t know why I deserve the blessing of him in my life every day, but am so thankful that I have it.
Happy Belated Thanksgiving.
