… i’m kind of liking you this year (gasp times 10)!! it is indeed stinkin’ hot but when you have a pool it’s not so bad. it keeps little boys happy and night swimming has to be one of my favorite things. i also keep having flashbacks to this past winter when we visited my parents. it wasn’t even that cold, but omar and i turned into weepy babies when our skin started cracking and i remember telling myself i wouldn’t complain so much when the temps hit 90. just trying to keep my word.
and warm weather + pool + active boys = falling asleep really fast even if it is still light out.
and when it is still light out after they’re in bed, i don’t trip over little boy toys as easily. specifically mr. potato head parts. over the past few days i noticed that i kept coming across random arms and noses after bedtime in places that i thought we’re picked up only a few minutes before. last night i figured it all out. right before bed, elisha finds the eyes and tongue of mr. potato head and places them outside his door on the facing wall. i watched him do this last night and as he trotted back to his bed he said, “i don’t like those things…” fair enough.
