2. That afternoon we decided to get everyone out of the house and go for a walk along a biking/jogging trail that runs through our town. The snow was gone, but a winter chill remained.
6. I miss having babies. There, I said it. I miss hearing the little noises they make when they're newborns, I miss feeling their soft breath against my cheek. I miss their toothless smiles. Joe says we're too old; I say not yet, but it won't be long before we are. He asks me, do you miss changing diapers? Do you miss getting up every two hours night after night? Do you miss cleaning up puke and diaper blowouts? Well, no, but I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
Every few months I convince myself that I'm pregnant. All kinds of mixed-up thoughts go racing through my head. Maybe we ARE too old. How will Joe feel about this? Will the boys be excited? How much will college tuition be for this one? It's scary and exciting at the same time. When I turn out not to be pregnant I'm slightly disappointed and slightly relieved; and I feel silly for even thinking that I might be.
Moe, our youngest, is eleven. He still comes to us at night for a goodnight hug before bed. His voice still hasn't started to change. I let him Punchbuggy me in the car because his brothers get annoyed when he does it to them. It makes me sad to know that pretty soon he'll go to bed without a goodnight hug, and if I Punchbuggy him he'll get annoyed with me.
Am I normal?
7. It's Day 3 of No Facebook, No Twitter. When I said good-night to my Facebook friends on Tuesday, I was surprised to feel a wave of sadness. All kinds of people responded to my last post; wishing me well, telling me they'd miss me, reminding me that on Sundays I was allowed to break my Lenten fast and maybe I could pop in then? I wanted to respond back to them, but I resisted the temptation. A friend asked me today if I was having Facebook withdrawal, and I said no. It's easier than I thought. But I'm looking forward to Easter when I can say hello to my friends again!
Obviously I can't bring myself to quit blogging. Not this year.
