Take Two

Looks like it’s possible that Gabe may have picked up Sam’s case of Fifth. Well, he’s got something, anyway; he’s fevered and has a little sniffle. Like Sam, though, he seems to want to take this on his own terms, and he categorically denies being sick at all, even going so far as to point …

Why am I tired?

Let me count the ways. Got up and ran this morning at 5:45 AM. (Had a running buddy this time, another woman from the family club, which made it nice.) It was a nice day, so I decided to take Gabe and walk Sam to the bus stop, only I accidentally locked us out. Good …

Sleepwalker

More “big kid” questions! Sam sleepwalks. We can tell when he’s “not really there,” though he’s moving and his eyes are open, because he doesn’t respond to us (or does so incorrectly – wandering to the bathroom when we tell him to go back to bed), because he looks “glazed over,” and because he usually …

It’s hard being Gabe

GABE: “I wanna be wif Sammy, Mom.” ME: “Sam’s at school.” GABE: “Okay, I go school.” ME: “Well, first you have to learn how to use the potty.” GABE: “Noooooooooo! Why?!” ME: “Because they don’t change diapers at school, Baby.” GABE: “Nooooooooooooooo!” (Angst, angst.) Going to be even more fun in the fall, when he …

Sam is the most awesome kid ever

Yesterday, while we were out, I teased Sam a little. “Hey, look at that guy riding a bike!” I said. “Sam, you should think about getting yourself a bike; they look pretty fun.” (Of course, he’s getting a bike for his birthday; it’s not really a secret.) “I’m getting a bike when I turn six.” …

Week Two

Running ninety seconds doesn’t feel much different from running sixty seconds at this point. I’m glad I decided to move on to Week Two instead of wimping out and repeating Week One. 😉 I feel great. I mean it! Not only do I feel physically awesome and energized all day after running, I’m actually at …

Here [came] the bride…

And what she wouldn’t give to have those legs again. 😉 Happy anniversary, Eric. Ten years, and it still feels like it was yesterday that we were standing in the back room of the church, and our friends were lying to me, telling me that yes, of course, all five members of the wind quintet …

Treasure hunt

Gabe and I went to a playdate today at a playground; it was set up as a treasure hunt, and the kids followed clues to lead them to a treasure chest filled with goody bags. Gabe considered this Serious Business, and he studied those clues hard while following the mass of children dutifully making the …

New shoes

I decided that, although I’m no trained athlete, the idea of trying to start a running program in sneakers that hurt one’s feet didn’t seem like the best strategy for success. Got me some new ones today! One’s choices are somewhat limited when shopping in the upper range of sizes; I saw some adorable shiny …

Realizing something

As we get Sam’s new bike for his birthday (at which size the salesclerk assured me that he’d probably stay for another three years, which is a darn good thing), and as I haul my old bike out of the garage to take it for a tune-up, I realize that my own bike is a …
