Tomorrow is Ken’s last day at GWAVA! How crazy is that? So tomorrow the boys and I are packing up and walking to meet him at then end of the day. I am thinking I will strap on the baby carrier so we can get there without having to dawdle at each and every intersection or interesting whatever. From now on we will have to walk the the library and back home or something. Hopefully by June we will be moved, and if that place has a yard we won’t have to go for walks, we can just hang out in the yard.
Today was my walk with Emanuel downtown. We went to the library and dropped off a book, Dairy Queen for onion rings and a burger (me – horribly unhealthy I know but I have not had it in ages) and babyfood for Emanuel, the dollar store, 7-11 for my Thursday slurpee and then home. It was warm enough for me to go downtown in short sleeves and then a little over an hour later on the way back need my light jacket.
So much for our happy day though – by 9:45 this morning Zander more than made up for that! He totally woke up on the wrong side of the bed! Every time I removed him from the situation the other two played fine! But today Gavin did a wonderful job colouring one of the Easter sheets I had Ken print off from a website my friend Cheryl had emailed me. Zander tore up construction paper.
My mom cut the boys’ hair yesterday – it always amazes me how much more grown up they look with their hair short! And more identical! I had packed the razor up for her and Gavin saw the box so all day yesterday he pulled at his hair and made faces. They do like their hair nice and neat. They are so like Ken it is CRAZY!
I got to see pictures of Ken’s cousin’s baby Dixie Rose last night on Facebook – she has a ton of hair and is cute as a button! Add to that the baby announcement of Adelynne that Layne and Dee sent us and I am feeling the baby urge – more specifically the GIRL baby urge! Yikes! I asked Christine if she had some sort of pharmaceutical miracle that could push the scales to girl and she said sadly… no. Oh well in all honesty conceiving a healthy baby end of July/August would make me happy too.
So I am really starting to feel both nervous and excited about Ken’s new job… this will be the most I have been alone with the kids ever. There is a big sense of security knowing Ken is but 5 min away. Oh well time to step outside the comfort zone right?
