Back in black

Well, it's more like back in a red tank and camel cords with brown flats but whatever, I'm back to blogging.

Although technically, I never really left blogging, I just kind of sort of moved it over to Flickr's 365 days. I've missed it over here, though, and many of you have been so kind as to visit me on my photostream even though I have been insanely absent on all of your blogs. I'm sorry about that. Showing as much T&A on a daily basis over on Flickr has been seriously time consuming but I think I'm going to back off over there and put more into here.

So get on over here and give me a hug, you big 'ol lug, you.

So what's new?

I took the Gavinator for a haircut over the weekend and he didn't even shed a tear. That's HUGE considering every hair cut in his entire life can be summed up by this. This time, he chomped on a sucker while peering out from under his long bangs to watch a video screen filled with dancing, singing scissors.

I'm no child safety expert but I can't imagine showing young children images of dancing, singing scissors is ever a good thing.

He is loving preschool and I tried to break the news to him that preschool was almost out for the summer and he sort of sighed and rolled his eyes and told me "no.... no it isn't, mommy". How he puts up with me and all the crazy stories I tell him, I will never know.

The Goose is growing up entirely too fast. She is talking and singing up a storm and still nursing 1-4 times a day. I've thought about weaning a lot lately but that's a whole 'nother story. We'll see. My favorite moments with her are usually bedtime. I rock her and sing to her in the glider in her room and she sings along with me. She's not quite two and some of the words are wrong or just garbled but she sings loud and proud and I swear, it is like being in a bar and the drunk sitting next to you is singing along with the jukebox. As she starts to drift off, her voice gets softer and she begins to trail off but sometimes she'll awake and join back into the sing along loud as ever only to trail right back off again.

Between her and the naked boy running around, motherhood is turning out to be more like college than I ever could have dreamed.

My 2.5 year old does the same loud, slightly drunken sounding singing while we rock to sleep. She has also taken to walking around the house completely in the nude most of the time. Life is a constant party.

Good to see you back Amanda!

Same old here....Davis making messes and not potty training and Emma being lippy and getting cloer to Tweenville. And me? Well I am getting huge.

Missed you!

Yeah, your back. I always forget to check the 365 and then I have days and days to catch up on.

You are so right. I wonder just this weekend how did my little boy turn into frat boy as he bent over to pick up a cracker with his mouth. I guess his arms were tired or he is getting ready to join the Tiny Tots Fraternity.

Hey girl--welcome back! Just here stalking and waiting around for you to show up. Ha! (At least it's not Myspace. Oh, BURN!)

I hear ya about the weaning. I just did it last month and I'm still grieving and mourning the loss. What an amazing 19 months that was for us. Good luck with the EBF or weaning, whatever you decide!
