Improvisation

19 Mar

I did something different today. Finally. Life’s been quite predictable lately. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, it just makes it hard to come up with blog posts. As evidenced by the fact that I made up that crazy post about Meg that ended up ticking my Mom off and convincing Belle’s foster mother that my vet is a quack. But that’s another story.

As for today… my son-in-law is traveling on some Army business. That means Amy is left home alone to deal with three kids–ages 8, 5 and 20 months–and one very large dog. That alone is enough, but add to the mix that she works full-time and Brianna, the oldest, has lacrosse practice three days a week. One could easily get overwhelmed. So I decided to sit with the boys tonight while Amy and Brianna went off to do the lacrosse practice thing.

So you get to see new pictures! Of the boys anyway…

It was sort of nice today, so we got to play outside. I snapped this one while Gaige and I were playing soccer. He sure looks like a fearsome goalie, doesn’t he?

The funny thing about this picture, which you’d never guess from looking, is how well Joey rides this little tricycle. Except, um, he rides it backwards. But he was having a blast. I’m going to have to get him a rear view mirror though.

I couldn’t leave Klondike out. He is one of the boys after all.

The funniest event of the evening was the look I got from Gaige when I started singing. He was humming and singing the chorus of the Sublime song, What I Got. All he kept repeating were, “Love is, what I got…” So I filled in the rest of the chorus and sang a little more of the song. His mouth dropped open and he looked at me like I had two heads.

“How do you know that song, G?” he asked with his dimpled smile.

“I just do,” I told him. So we sang it together. It was cute.

I’m going back to Amy’s tomorrow for Thirsty Third Thursday. I’ll try to get a shot of Brianna to post.

One thought on “Improvisation

  1. Seriously, with the crazy Meg post I thought “this can’t be real. . .can it??” You shoulda held onto that one til April! 🙂

    I’m looking forward to seeing the boys (and Brianna) and I’m VERY ready for TTT.
