Taa Daa!

Do you know how much I love and appreciate you? Here is the proof. Little Man has gone to his first day of school, (gratuitous inserting of picture here)*

and instead of taking a shower or eating breakfast, (IHOP here I come!)I am sitting down to show you we are still alive and hmmm... not exactly well, but surviving anyway. The bus is still not figured out, but I guess my mini temper tantrum worked the other day, because the school got their act together quickly. Bald Man will take and I shall pick up. And inbetween? Oh my, the delicious sensation of hours stretch before me! What shall I do? Needle felt? Shop? Nap??? Read? Already updated the blog, so I can check that one off the list... I am not ready to decide yet, the incredible freedom of being able to choose unhindered by other obligations is just too, too delightful!
Little Man did not fall asleep until 11 last night. Not good, but not horrible either. Praying it goes a bit better tonight, but he did sleep until 10:30 yesterday, so maybe he wasn't tired? Ha, that is a dumb comment on my part, this is the child who has gone as long as 36 hours with no sleep, what in the world am I talking about? Who knows? God is the only one who knows, since the mystery of Little Man has yet to be penetrated by any puny human brain!
He was upset about going to school, but it wasn't major. Now he is off, with a new outfit, new backpack and new shoes he refused to wear so he is in his sandals that are falling apart.
*The truth behind the picture: He was not happy and was have a minor whinefest, "I don't want to go to school..whine, whine" But I said the magic word!...... Are you ready for this?......... FART! Instant smile. Hey, a moms gotta do, what a moms gotta do, to get at least the facade of a happy first day of school picture. But now you know... the rest of the story!

WOW...he's changed a lot since the last picture you posted, with him among the boxes. His shoulders look wider, and his face more grown-up. Good thinking with the "FART" and all--just goes to show what a little sleep can do for the old ingenuity ;-)

Lovely smile, no matter what it took.

What a cutie!

I agree with Little Man: FART! HA-ha-ha-ha-HAHAHAHAHA! Uhoh...seems I've lost my fair share of sleep as well!

Congrats on getting things back on track.
