I try, honestly I do! But look at the time I'm blogging, 12:09 AM!!!!!! With the recent events in this family, life has not been condusive (sp?) to blogging- it just isn't. The madness has officially started.... My 5 year old discovered he is a social butterfly (or is that dragonfly for boys?). He has discovered a new friend (his best friend in the whole word mommy!) that lives only four doors up. Zachary would be the appendage on Christopher's right hip. They are inseperable. In addition, we have started t-ball. Not only are they playing t-ball together (like they would have been torn apart for that), they have enlisted a tight group of friends to play with them (Landon, Brooke, Ryan, and Makai). What a fun group they are- I can't wait till games start! This weekend alone, we had t-ball practice, a birthday party, neighborhood easter egg hunt, and cookout, then Easter Sunday with church, dinner at grandparents, another easter egg hunt, and then of course playing with Zachary (like you thought he'd miss a day). Where does that leave Caleb you may ask. RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF EVERYTHING! At 18 months old, he is discovering the world, somedays faster than we'd like. When Christopher takes off up the road on his bike, whom do you think is following as fast as his little Fred Flintstone legs will follow... That's right- CALEB! Fortunately, Zachary (the bestest friend) has a little sister who is absolutely an angel and loves Caleb, and vice versa. Amber and Caleb have quite a time playing together too. Temper tantrums for this not even two year old are not a daily event, but more than likely an hourly event. I'm told this is normal... REALLY? OMG, we are setting boundaries minute by minute and he's testing them second by second. Honestly, I wouldn't change a thing! Life is hectic, chaotic, crazy and downright fun and happy!!!!! Did I imagine life as a mother of two would be like this.... NEVER... it's so much better than I could have ever begun to think up. I LOVE THIS PHASE! Am I exhausted? You bet! Is my life full of exclamation points, YEP! Do I love it? You better believe it!!!!!!!!!
