Time & Energy

Boy, this posting on a regular basis thing is going to be challenging. I have promised myself that I will try to post at least once a week. Work has been extremely busy, especially this week, given the markets and the merger news so I definitely feel deprived in the time arena.

On the home front, the kids seem to be growing before my eyes. The baby will be a year old in a week and she is so full of energy. Did I say ENERGY? Well, everyone knows that there is no energy in the world like my Mr. Wonderful, a.k.a. My Whirling Dervish. He is in full swing with soccer season on top of judo three times a week. His homework is getting more and more labor intensive and complicated which requires patience and focus, two things that are definitely not his strong suit. Thank goodness I keep a calculator with me at all times! Helping him with his schoolwork is keeping me up nights…I am having flashbacks of my own fourth grade classroom and I swear I can see the ghost of Miss Brockman flying down the hallway corridors in my sleep.

The baby is walking much more assuredly and she seems to be completely following our conversations. She hates to be confined to her crib, exersaucer, walker or even her stroller. She wants to be the free spirit she was meant to be. She loves to babble on the telephone and bring it to us when it rings. She brings our shoes to us when it’s time to leave and she brings her brother’s favorite stuffed animal that is ABSOLUTELY OFF LIMITS to her (according to him) right to him without putting it in her mouth…which I consider quite a feat of restraint!
