For every one of you who has ever said I should write a book, I used to think, "No way." But tonight, the scales have dropped from my eyes, and I have seen the light....the light that has exposed the truth-- I have enough material to write a book. Any gaps that baby ridge's story has are EASILY filled by sawyer. and gaps being filled is an excellent way to describe what sawyer does. I'd also like to say, this post is going to make you laugh. Possibly spit-milk-out-of-your-nose laugh. I warned you. In a very appropriate phrase, I warned you.
before i go on, if you want to catch your breath and gain a lot of composure, bc you are about to lose it with laughter, check out the photo blog's new pics.
so, tonight, after my sister in law and her hubs left our house to head back to tx, i finished proofreading a senior paper for our pastor's son. normally, when i finish a project on the weekend, i move on to another one. but tonight, i wasn't feeling it. so i held ridgey, and kept feeling.....i can't believe it.....bored. for the first time in a LONG time, i felt free enough to feel bored at home. and while i am thankful for that, i also wanted to do SOMETHING. now, i have a lot to be doing, but none of that was my priority tonight. i wanted to hang out with the fam. so...i mentioned, several times, bc i was competing with march madness and two children, "I'm bored." finally, bdawg passed me the remote and said i could rent a movie or whatever. i fed the baby instead and decided that gave me at least an hour and a half before he'd eat again, so i was gonna take a long bath all alone....that's like my life long dream. well, i always take a bath alone. but just because no one's in the tub with me does not mean that no one busts in the bathroom saying, "MOMMY!" or "he won't stop crying, i gotta leave him in here with you." or whatever. And I get it, that's part of being a parent. I can take it. But tonight, it looked like there was hope on the horizon. I lit my little candles, got my book all ready, drew up the bath water.....i was ready to go. I got all settled in, but before I did so, I told Brandon I'd be out in a while, and if Sawyer wanted to finish that trail mix in his bowl on the bar, he better do it.
i had been in the bathtub all of about
i have one funny kid.
Bdawg and sawyer left for the ER, exam was done on the kid's nose by two docs, no raisin to be found. conclusion: he probably swallowed it. watch for signs of infection in the next few days.
my conclusion: sawyer wanted the insurance company to know we had another kid.
laugh it up.
