Can I tell you what I love about this picture?
There we are, smiling at the camera. Meanwhile my dad is soothing the baby and my mom can't work her own camera and Linda is talking to the boys who are laughing at whatever she's staying (and sitting still, miraculously) and Brian's aunt is listening to them and it's all so BUSY - while Brian and I stop for just a minute and smile at the camera. That mirror could be a little bubble for what's going on in my head - or around me - at any given moment in life.
This picture sums it up pretty well, don't you think?
Also - seriously guys? I tell you we're moving AND it's my birthday and I get comments about potty training? It's a commentary on just how un-fun potty training really is. Although with Silas it hasn't been very stressful at all, mostly because I have been so relaxed about it. But still - Colorado? Hello? That's kind of a big deal in my little world.
One more thing - Two of the three kids are sick this week. Strep and ear infections and what not. I spent most of yesterday insisting that Silas had a false positive on his strep test (he's still eating normally, no strep symptoms at all) right up to the moment yesterday afternoon when my throat started hurting, too. Ah, yes. Maybe occasionally the doctor's office knows something I don't know.
