ChristonafreakingBIKE, life has been kicking my ass! Boy in kindergarten, new blog, lots of day-job fracas, home-improvement-y projects in my, um, home… I am full up to here (waves hand above forehead) with stress, righteous indignation, and small people needing hugs 24×7.
In an effort to catch you up on my week, and keeping in mind that a picture is worth ONE THOUSAND (places pinkie finger in corner of mouth) words, those of you on dialup might want to go grab a cup of coffee.
Mike’s self-portrait as a newly-minted Kindergartener. I know I don’t post pictures with my kids faces, but I thought I’d make an exception here. Note the accurately depicted Favorite Dinosaur Shirt. Also included: “Still Life with Cow.”
And we figured that since Chip, 2.5, was able to say “I wanna bed like da BRUDDAHS!” it was time to get him out of his crib. You know what that means: a trip to the paint-it-yourself wood furniture store. Or maybe that’s just us. In any case, Craig came home with a bed in the minivan, made a head board, we painted it, and stuck it in his bedroom. He couldn’t even wait for me to get the sheets on he was so excited!
Oh, and just for that extra “somethin somethin” in the process of moving it around I made a total bonehead move and flipped my thumb backwards. Hyperextension is fun! I’ll have to show y’all a picture of the awesome bruise.
And then it was my birthday! I turned Forty! And my mom sent balloons! And the boys love them! And I still haven’t thanked my mother for them! (Thanks Mom — that was so sweet of you :)
When I got home from work, the boys showed me the black-bottom CUPCAKES they made for me and the present they wrapped by themselves.
But of course Craig did the shopping.
And I’m thinking that 40 looks pretty good to me.
