Clearly, The BLOG is not my highest priority right now.

You can feel good knowing that it’s not at the bottom of the list however. Yesterday I finally took the time to remove the last remnants of the nail polish I had painted on my toes TWO WEEKS before Felicity was born.

I probably shouldn’t admit that I’ve been wearing sandals everyday since then either.

And I also probably don’t need to tell you that it is not the only standard that I’ve lowered around here.

I’m going to try to make an effort to post weekly until…well…I was going to say until life is not so busy but, even though I sometimes wish I could see at least a little bit of the immediate future (just a few months out! that’s all!) I can’t, but I do know that waiting for life to slow down means I’m in for a long wait, if you know what I mean, which I’m sure you do since you’re waiting for me to end this completely inane run-on sentence, but I haven’t yet because I sort of want it to be the run-on sentence that doesn’t stop, although we all know if I don’t stop it very soon you’ll never even read it since I won’t be able to post it, so if you’re reading this, you’ll know that it stops very very soon.

Whew! And you guys were actually wishing I’d start posting again!

(But please stay. I won’t do that again. Very soon.)

So in other news…I now know what you mean about everyone thinking baby girls are boys. It doesn’t bother me and I rarely correct people unless it seems that I can’t avoid it (we’re talking people at the grocery store and the post office). But for the people who get offended, I guess I think all babies kind of look like boys. At least when they’re under 2 months. You know how premature infants look like old men? That’s what it is. All tiny babies look like boys. Felicity is looking less and less like a boy to me now though. (And the next posting will have pictures!!! Promise.)

Today: I looked at the clock and sighed because it was later than I wanted it to be.

C was watching me and said, “It’s getting late to start school?” (He likes to always be on time.)

“Yeah, but it’s alright.”

“Yeah,” he said. “It’s alright. It’s not real anyway.”

Well, that’s a relief. I was getting all anxious about homeschooling, but now that I know I can fake it, I’ll relax a little.

A few days ago: S was watching me feed Felicity. As I switched her to the other side he said, “Why are you putting her on the other side?”

“Because I think she’s still hungry.” I said.

“So, that side,” he said, pointing to the right. “is for drinking. And the other side is for food?”

That kid makes me laugh.

    Hahaha…S’s comment made me laugh. I guess it’s a good thing that T doesn’t talk yet, although I do wonder what goes through his mind (especially when I had to use the pump), but my mom says he’s too little to remember any of this…My neice made the comment when we were out visiting and T was about 4 months old that he was eating my tummy…I left that one for C to correct! 🙂

    I take my hat off to you. I’m struggling to homeschool and I have no baby. You have a newborn–ok, a nearly two-month-old–and you are homeschooling! I know I’d be more than a “little late” getting started each day.

    I must say, it’s good to hear that my kids aren’t the only ones who think homeschool isn’t “real”. =) For our girls, this is only what we have to endure until we go back to the US, whenever that will be.

    Since I’ve been missing your posts so much, I must comment! Perhaps you noticed that Curious now nurses her babydolls; as she switches sides w/ her doll, she announces, “sides!” 🙂

    My grandkids say the cutest things. By the way, I seem to remember one of you saying the same thing about homeschooling 20 years back. Wow, can it really be that long ago? I AM getting old. And I’m still waiting for things to slow down a bit so I can work on your baby book.
