Well, today was my first day back to the regular old schedule with work. That alarm clock rang aweful early today. And the kids (and staff) didn’t really want to be there, so teaching was like pulling teeth. I’m sure it’ll get better over the course of the week as everybody gets back in the groove, myself included. And I’ve got a new seating chart for tomorrow that will help. But it sure wasn’t fun having to go back to the real world after a wonderful holiday time where got to spend all our minutes with our little family, and extended family.
But enough about work – that’s no fun to write about or read about. Luckily, today is also this little man’s 7 month birthday.
Its hard to believe that he’s already 7 months old. Everyday he looks a bit more like a little boy, and less like a baby. It makes me so happy and so sad all at the same time. And he’s CONSTANTLY reaching for things.
Tonight he was taking a bath in the kitchen sink because dinner had gotten a bit messy. Jaylee didn’t notice at first (she was watching Color Crew on my phone). But when she did notice, she came over and was standing on her tippy toes to see what was going on in the sink. So I picked her up so she could see, and she immediately said “I go splash-splash too!”. So this happened.
They were just so dang cute playing together in the kitchen sink. I kept saying it was time for Jaxton to go to bed, and Jaylee kept saying “He no go night-night. He’s got 5 minutes. He go splash splash too.” She really wanted him to stay and play with her. And they were just having such a ball pouring water back and forth. It really made this rather-crummy back-to-work day much much better. These are the kind of moments I told myself I’d look out for, and I’m going to cherish this one for a very long time.
Lucky we’ve got a deep sink!
