Megan's Toes!!

We painted Meg's toes for the first time today!! She LOVED it. She then went and put her crocs on after the paint was dry, they are her favorite shoes, and then stopped when she realized they made it so she couldn't see her super cute toes. I put these sandals on her instead, and you should have heard her giggling with delight when she realized she could wear them AND see her toes.
Such a girl. LOVE HER!!

Those little toe nails are HARD to paint!!
She is so happy. She won't stop admiring them.

I Can Do This

Yesterday I had one of those days, where at the end I thought, "I can do this."
It was that good.
We woke up, got some much needed things done, went swimming for a couple of hours, came home and the kids actually ate their lunch. Then we took a long nap, woke up, I made a great dinner, the kids actually ate again, we played, ate some cake, and then went to bed (or at least the kids did). It wasn't anything remarkable, but it was productive, fun, happy, and we were all in a good mood.
I even got a kiss on my arm and a little back rub from Carter during nap time (he takes
naps with me).
Really, with a day like that, I feel like I just might be able to accomplish this whole homemaker, housewife, mom thing.

To Bo

You are the best DAD ever!!! We scored big time getting you as a husband and dad. Thank you so much for taking such good care of us and putting up with our craziness. We adore you. You are our favorite person in the whole world and there's nothing we'd rather do than be with you.

Happy Father's Day!!!

Why do I bother?

Carter has a room full of toys.
But does he play with them??????
Instead, he likes to sit right next to me, and I mean RIGHT NEXT to me, on the couch, looking at the computer.
Yes, yes, maybe I should get up and go play with him and said toys, but my back hurts, so here I am sitting on the couch, with a heating pad, looking at the computer.
Hence he is sitting next to me/on me pushing buttons on the computer, NOT playing with toys. Driving me crazy. Where is his father?
Why can't he entertain himself? He never has. Meg is awesome at playing with the toys.
So there you have it. Why do I bother buying toys for Carter?? Perhaps it is for the future children, like Meg. Maybe Carter is just being generous by keeping the toys in pristine condition for them. That's it, I'm sure of it. It's all selfless.
We're a glass half-full family.

What we do

What exactly do we do all day?
Well. . . we like to put ourselves in tight spots.. . .
(TA DA!!)
Boost mom's self esteem. . .
(it really was good)

Develop our creative talents, or try to, while showing off our muscular torso and modeling mom's shirt. . .

Play with the objects meant to HOLD our toys, instead of playing with the toys themselves. . .

And last, but not least, we just try our hardest to be just so darn cute.

Going to Washington!!

We did it!!! We bought our plane tickets! We are officially going home (yes I still call it home) to Washington for the month of July and most if not all of August.
We are super excited. Well Carter and I are. Meg doesn't quite understand, but if you ask her if she is, she'll say she is.

What to do, what to do?

I don't know what to do about Carter and pre-school. The only one I can afford to put him in next year is the one through the school, and that is only because it's supposed to be free. I really want him to be in pre-school. I know he would love it. I think it would be great for him too, because sometimes (ha) he just really does not want to listen to me. I also don't want him to be behind when he goes to Kindergarten (although really, how hard can it be to catch up???).
So the pre-school problem: The one through the school is EVERYDAY from 7:30 to 3!!!!! To me that just seems like way too long for Carter to be at school, especially since it's PRE-SCHOOL and he's only 4!! I mean, I've known for a long time that even for Kindergarten I hope to find only a half day program. Not only is it everyday for that long, but you aren't allowed to pull him out early in the day (it's frowned on), and he only gets so many absences before he's kicked out. Since it's Bo's last year in med school, he's going to have some time off, and I would like to be able to have Carter be home sometimes to play, or to go on trips, or whatever.
He's my baby. He's too young for this. Not to mention that he's still so easily influenced, and I don't want the public education ruining him quite yet. Not ruining, I guess, just changing him. I like him naive and sweet, and malleable. hahaa.
BUT. . . he wants to go to school. He's asked me if he could. I know it would help him learn more then he would from me. It would be nice to get a little break (is that bad?).
What to do, what to do.
What should I do??????
I am going to Washington this summer. I don't know for how long. Bo is doing 2 away rotations. Most likely I will go all of July and August. I just can't handle the thought of being alone without him, so I'll go home. If Carter goes to pre-school, I'll have to be back mid August and have to be alone for 2 weeks without him, which might not seem that big a deal to some, but to me, no thank you. If Carter doesn't go to school, I'll stay in WA for all of August, and might even be able to convince Bo to meet us there and stay a couple weeks in September too. If I can handle it, that is.
So again, What do I do???????? really, please help!
