Dingleberries


So I haven't posted anything in quite a while. This month has felt like a trip to the looney bin.




Jason has been out of town almost twelve days (returns tomorrow, thank the Lord). I was sick. The kids were sick. Our nanny was sick. The kids were sick. A cycle. I missed work, I worked all hours of the night to catch up. The second my head hit the pillow, the kids were awake. It was nutter-butter-dom, and I am going to be glad when blissful October ends.




But October is always a month to remember for the old Atwoods. 8 years of marriage this month.

And the hardest labor in the history of mankind (James) and the biggest stinker of a boy celebrates two years on Sunday (also James). Let's put it this way... today is Thursday. I went into labor two years ago, on the 21st of October. And let me re-emphasize that he was not born until the 25th. Nuff said.

Our life is hilarious with these two rascals. Stella is becoming bold and strong and silly. She eats whole pieces of food, and has found her voice. She eats books like her brother did.

James has turned a big corner from the terrible twos, and is covering us in kisses, hugs and saying things like "love you, mommy" and "i like you." I melt. My boy. I knew the sweetness would return.

There are so many stories that I have failed to document this month. I would say that I will remember them and post them later. But all I remember is the laughter. Our house is a Fun House, a Funny House... and years and years from now, I may not remember anything else. But I will remember that the Atwoods were a silly group of dingleberries.
