Holy Toledo Batman!
Kael is WALKING! Not all the time, but more and more. The little fart is so funny. He'll just be sitting in the middle of the room and stand up. The most steps he has probably taken in a row are about 6 maybe 7, but his determination has me awestruck. It's probably a good thing he is the baby and my only boy because I have a feeling it is going to come in very handy that I can be so laid back and relaxed with him and about what he's doing. Everything he does is funny to me and watching his temperament (oh holy *St. Jude does he have a temper!), his determination, his growing personality have me convinced that he will probably be an incorrigible little heathen! However, I will make him behave in public! But if you are visiting our home I'll go ahead and warn you now that you will probably think I am a horrible mother that allows him way to many freedoms and caters to the demands of a child!! So now that we are clear on just who runs my household we should probably move on.
I finally got ahold of the photography studio Reflections here in town and set up an appointment to have the kids' portraits done. I was so proud of myself that I had finally done this! I was telling the girls and their dad last night that I had set the session up for Friday at 1pm only to find out I had to be in Pryor and wasn't sure if I'd be back by then. During this I can't figure out why he is looking at me so strangely and why the oldest divinity looks stricken! He carefully points out that 1pm is in the middle of the day as the oldest divinity screeches what class she'd be in at that time. Oops! it never occurred to me until that moment that I would have had to take both girls out of school to have their pics done. lol Such a blonde sometimes. So I am now going to try and reschedule.
And if anyone is wondering, I haven't changed my mind about my marriage and the post I put up a while back. There are however extenuating circumstances that have made it necessary to continue sharing a house for now. Sometime later when it's not so fresh I will probably elaborate, but right now it just doesn't feel like the right time.
My daily mantra has become, "Patience is a virtue, and oh how virtuous I must be today!".
Well I will bore you no longer, have a great day and smile even when it's not funny, it just makes you feel better! (oh, and you look younger when your smiling!)
*Sidenote: I'm not Catholic and would not want to offend anyone that is. I am fascinated by the Catholic devotion to Saints and feel a strong pull to the belief that many of the Saints were truly that. And my reference to St. Jude is not meant in a derogatory way by any means. St. Jude is the saint of 'desperate situations' and well I just thought it fit!
