Just An Ordinary Week

Well, life is never stagnant around here. It just keeps going by.

Little One seems to be recovering quite quickly from all his surgery. I'm glad he's so little. He is all perked up again this morning, happily tipping toy boxes and exploring them. He's busy unloading the bookshelves and bugging Little Miss.

Little Miss is still being quite stubborn about the potty training, but I think everyday is progress. I'm starting to discover the things she wants that will help us all reach out goal. She wants dresses and Tae Kwon Do. I know, I know, how on earth do those two things go together, well, she's a complex little girl. All princess and punch in one.

The Littlest Mr. is just waiting. When will they call and tell him which baseball team he's on. When will practice start. When is the first game. When can someone go catch with him? When can we pitch to him? Life is baseball for this boy.

Life is always changing. We were thinking about sending the boys off to public school next fall, but The Little Mr. had other plans.

He's going to school. This year. Maybe this week. He's going to do his placement testing on Monday and I'm guessing get assigned to a classroom later in the week. He's very excited.

Change happens. It's a big part of being a parent. You always evaluate where you are and what you're doing. You work to find the best solutions for your kids and your family. So sometimes that means changing the plan, even before you thought you would.

I'm looking forward to working with the school and Little Mr. to make this as good as it can be. It's time for them to have some new experiences.

Finally for The Mr. a land mark week. He turns 40 on Monday. The Mr. has a good handle on things though, no mid-life crisis around here. He firmly declared this morning that old is a state of mind, and I'd bet his mind is out on the water. The ice is thawed, the spring wind is blowing, it's only a matter of hours before the life jackets come out of the closet and the sailing gear goes in the trunk.

Sweet sailing and Happy Birthday Mr. Always and forever.
