as i was feeding tess, ryan had the girls out back playing. i looked up to see Lucy tromping around the yard with these oh so safe garden shearers. of course i run calmly walk out back and take them away. i tell ryan that she cannot play with those…he replied,”well, she was being really careful” – ya…no….not going to happen. i replaced the killer blade with kid friendly rounded scissors so she could continue to cut blades of grass.as i go back in to continue feeding (remembering the days when i just had one baby and feeding was easy and calm:) lucy knocks on the back door to show me her haircut.(cringe) all you can do is laugh. she said she cut her hair because she wanted to see it grow – now we are sporting a funky patch in the front.do you see the tent in the background? Ryan assembled the tent, then sprayed it down inside and out with water. I went out and asked:
KK: “Ry, what are you doing with that tent?”
Ryan: “oh….just…getting it ready”
KK: (confused) “for what?”
KK: are you going camping (completely unaware of any planned trip?)
Ryan: “no, just getting it ready in case we do”
honey…..i don’t think camping is anywhere in our near future, but i am so glad we have a tent up and ready to go in case we do. it is now fully assembled in our garage. i guess he was needing something manly to do???soccer was playedlucy did some ballet ( does she not look graceful and michael anne romped around – she is one busy busy girl.
ryan introduced me to this song and we both love it – we used to wait by arcade fire
