Trying to figure it out

Ok, I've deleted cookies and files and reset all of my internet options and now I can get back into my blog. We'll see if that fixes everything. I hope so because I've spent way too much time on this and way too little time on the laundry mildewing in my washer.

We went to the zoo today. Our zoo sucks but the kids seemed to have a good time. Lucy missed her afternoon nap but is still as pleasant as can be.

We got a new gecko today. Not because the first one died but because they were on sale and they apparently live happily in pairs. Rico is his name. Henry kept singing "bingo and rico sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g". Sam quickly pointed out that two boys can't be in love and I said "that's right!!". So much for my open mind: )

Sam's quote of the day

"How can you be pretty but so scary sometimes?"
Someone told me today that I made motherhood looks so easy. It does get easier as the days go by. We talked last night about having another. Chad still emphatically says NO. I think I could do just one more but the clock is ticking. I will be 36 soon and I seem to age dramatically with each child. Maybe three is good.

It is late for me . . . almost 9pm. The boys are in bed, reluctantly. . . the mom's have retired because they are forced to . . if not, we feel like bad parents. We long to continue our converations about dreams and jobs and ideas that we have not pursued. Instead we are overwhlemed by making sure our kindergarteners are in bed on time and have practiced their sight words. We strive to make sure their shoes are in their boxes and that their clothes are in the bins. What is the weather tomorrow? Will we have to ensure that they have a jacket or a raincoat? What about lunch? do we have enough to pack a balanced lunch. What will the other moms and teachers think???
This is my first attempt at a blog. I am indeed a virgin. My mother has encouraged me to do this and so I'm giving it a whirl. Perhaps it will be an interesting outlet for the clutter in my mind . . perhaps I will tell an interesting story or two. Right now though my Lucy is napping and my sweet Henry is waiting for his cuddle time on the couch.
