T2 quote

"this is the most ruinous day ever.....can we still go in the hot tub?"

It's all about girl drama around here!

More MOM Time

More Mom time doesn't only apply to being a Mom. Although I am trying to give more of myself to my kids, I am also trying to give more of myself to myself and have been working on some projects. One - a skirt for T2 is complete but the quilt for my itty bitty Niece still needs some work. I've never made a quilt before but I'm pretty pleased with it so far.

Face paints - not just for faces!

Last week the kids and I had fun with some face paints that T2 received as a Birthday gift. T2 wanted her face painted but then we moved on from faces to...

Birthday reflections

T2 had a great Birthday, spending the day at the beach, Birthday cards in the mail and packages to open at dinner time. As with Tobin's Birthday, I wrapped her gifts in plain paper and wrote words describing her on each one.

She also enjoyed a party with her friends at our place with pizza and cupcakes.

Quoting T1

"I don't know if I even know the words to describe how much I love living here".

Ditto kiddo. There's nothing quite like validation from a very happy kid. Moving away from familiarity was a gamble. T1 doesn't handle change well (all part of Asperger Syndrome) we knew this could be really tough on him even though we knew in the long run it could be great for our family. To hear him spontaneously share that he's happy here is more than I could ever have wished for. I told him that I thought it was the best thing we ever did, moving here. He agreed - he actually agreed with me lol!!!
