As I was saying…

December 14, 2007


Does the “post” below need an explanation? If you are a mother, I think not.

Ah, children.

The little one was spitting up (I believe the correct term for it would be projectile vomiting), the older one was unhappy because he thought his baby brother needed his binky and didn’t understand why putting it in his mouth while he threw up wasn’t a good idea. the daddy was downstairs trying to make sense out of the stuff bomb that seems to have hit our living room the moment we pulled into the driveway, my computer was sitting out from a failed attempt at writing a post left-handed while nursing, then the toddler climbed up and sat down beside the laptop while I cleaned up the baby…. and thus the post you see below. Along with the fifty windows open on my desktop and the lock he somehow put on my keyboard.

I’m guessing this will also explain why I am sitting here without makeup on and my hair in a not-so-stylish ponytail when I was planning to be out the door two hours ago to spend the morning finishing my Christmas shopping and running five zillion errands before getting and decorating our tree tonight.

As I was saying–we are home.

And we are determined to enjoy every moment of this next week-and-a-half of Christmas, whether we be in the snowy six degrees in Colorado,

…or stringing popcorn with my family in the desert…

…or, you know, wiping up infant throw up while in our beachy home.

It’s all good, peeps.

    Welcome home!

    Will you be at your beachy home or your desert home for Christmas?

    Isn’t having little ones fun? Your post always makes it sound fun, even the hectic times.

    Wondered at the post below… “you are at the hjkjjjjjjjjjjjjjjlk889889″ seemed rather cryptic! Wonder who Troy was trying to send a message to? Perhaps somebody trying to destroy your computer (explains the windows and the lock)! :-)

    I LOVE that picture. And yeah, judging from the post below, the typing sounds just like something Troy would say. LOL
