Things Noticed - August 2010

His hair, his mannerisms, his lanky-ness and how he drapes himself on a couch...my son, the pre-teen teenager. His skulks away sometimes and I see him through sideways glances--but I do see him and wonder how amazing life is that I can see my son grow into someone I know/but do not know.

Her vocabulary springs forth in many surprising and touching ways, whether she is demanding "I want juuuuuuuuiiice!" "Tisses!" (kisses) or she is just singing her own songs, with words I know sprinkled amongst the words I do not.

He is over worked and over whelmed, but still finds time to send me a link to a site that he knows I would like. He comes home and she runs to him, hugging him around his long long legs. I worry about him. I love him, even as he drives me crazy sometimes....like when he leaves his many many glasses all around the house....

Kitten getting bigger and more adapted in our routines...loves to snuggle against me at night.
Cat is starting to show signs of enjoying the companionship--snuggles kitten (on her terms). Kitten reciprocates overly.

Mid-August all ready, and while I have enjoyed this summer to the fullest, I still feel like I haven't done enough this summer. School shopping looms and I dread it. School looms and I worry. I get my mind off of worries by having lunch outside--sushi and a good book...

ahh...summer, stay a bit longer, please....

I wish it was always summer. I love the kids being around all the time and the laid-backness of it all. Sigh.

I can't believe summer is almost over (although I'm ready for an end to the heat).
