Oh, did you think that just because I'm gone on vacation I'd miss an opportunity to
I have not been so neurotic to set up several posts for my blog before I left for vacation this week. I do not care that much about my blog and I do not feel bad for letting it go for almost a week without any posts. I did not have blogging on my list of things to do before leaving. I did not ignore some of the house work listed in favor of blogging. I am not that obsessed. Nope, not me!
I did not neglect to buckle up my two year old son in the car the other day before driving down the road. I do not have him climb into the van behind my one year old's seat and get into his own seat for my convenience. I did not forget to check and make sure he had gotten into his seat and buckled his own seat on his own. I did not get annoyed by my two year old's fidgeting in the back seat while I was driving and when I asked him about it he did not say, "I'm trying to fix this," while trying to buckle the seat belt. I did not immediately pull over in tons of traffic and buckle him in. I did not apologize about 50 times. I do not have a wicked case of mother's guilt over the whole situation. I am not thanking and praising God for his provision of safety while we were on the road.
I did not have the following conversations with my two year old this week:
Me: Jayce, did you know we are going on vacation this week? With Nana and Papa?
Jayce: We go right now?
Me: No, today is Wednesday, and we leave on Saturday. So we have to get through Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and then it's Saturday. And what are we doing on Saturday?
Jayce: We go on vacation with Nana and Papa! We go right now?
Me: Nope, remember, we go on Saturday.
Jayce: It be Saturday right now?
Jeremy was showing Jayce some of our wedding pictures. He pointed out one that you could only see Jeremy in the reflection of a mirror.
Jeremy: Do you see where Mommy is?
Jayce: Right here.
Jeremy: Do you see where Daddy is?
Jayce: (after looking at the picture for a little while) Daddy in Mommy's belly?
I did not pack up the boys (Jeremy included) in about 1 hours. It did not take me about 4-5 hours to pack up myself. Apparently I have problems dressing myself.
