I am impressed with myself... I've been taking a photo every single day so far, whether it be on my fancy camera or my Galaxy. But I can't make it to the blog everyday to post. So... I'll do what I can. Here's a big catch-up:
019/365: When my husband is sick, there is one thing he is comforted by: Chicken Soup with Rice. His beautiful mother sent some over to us. The joy of having her so near and so willing to help!! Thank you. It was delicious.
020/365: Camera phone. We had to take Lucy Cate to the doctor. My monkeys in the middle had to come too... we didn't have childcare that day. It was all good though... I got to bribe them with Dr. T's lollipops. :) Lucy loves lollipops too, but was feeling terrible this day.
021/365: Camera phone. We hadn't gotten out of the house in a few days, and were desperate for milk and bread. I later found out what a bad idea it was to leave the house that day, but here we are before the bug got the monkeys too.
022/365: Camera phone. Lucy is a mess. She has officially become a full-fledged toddler. She has discovered the thrill of shouting NO and making her opinions clear to the household. This was during my attempt at dinner and dishes. She followed me and pulled on me, screaming, because she wanted... get this... to sweep the floor. I told her she had to wait until I was done with dishes, so she wasn't in the way. The second I turned it on and handed it over, she was all smiles again! Someone please remind her just how much she loved to clean the floor when she is a teenager. ;)
023/365: Ben-Ben got a "Home Depot" toddler tool kit for Christmas. It is his new favorite toy. Even more than his Batman gear. He loves to go around the house "fixing" things. He is so happy to have a toolkit now... he used to use my keys as a screwdriver. Now he has the REAL pretend thing. ;) Here he is, under the piano bench, fixing it for me. ;)
Thanks for enjoying my family updates with me! A "real" post is coming later. I think I've been getting intimidated by my huge audience lately, becoming a little more aware of just how publicly I am sharing such deep matters of my heart. I don't want to stop... blogging has been a huge part of my life since 2003. I don't want to make it private either. I just want to be sure I say what I want to say in a way that isn't misunderstood. :)
