Moments to remember...

Evan got "hypnotized" by Papa tonight. Giggling like a maniac, he pretended to do whatever Papa commanded. (Gotta remember that trick...)

Corinne said she didn't miss me at all during her special sleepover at Nana and Papa's house. She had a day with Nana at the mall, "Just the girls!" and got spoiled rotten, simply because she could be. Skipping around in her new dress, she pulled out the cotton candy she asked Nana to buy for her "brudders" when she was at the candy store. Always thinking of them, and wanting to include them in her treats...

Justin serenaded us with "Disturbia" so that Corinne and Evan could do the robot dance that accompanies it. I laughed and snorted till tears welled up... He's so like his dad. Singing, All. The. Time. Now, if I could just get him OFF of this whole "dum, dum, dee, dum" Disturbia stuff, life would be good.

Fast. Too fast. Do you realize that this year was Justin's last year for Cub Scout day camp? (of course you didn't.) Do you realize that this means he is, like, GROWING UP? STILL? As in, he hasn't reached an age that he will stay at. As in, no one reaches an age they stay at... As in, change, change, change...

Too much for my head tonight. Too many thoughts. Too many feelings. Too much time to think by myself...
~~~
We have nothing but wide open days for 4 weeks. An occasional bbq or bridal shower, and then BlogHer! Hopefully the Illinois weather will cooperate and we will be at the pool more than we're home. Seriously. Because if I have to listen to Justin complain about the weather one more time? I will be locking him in the basement until a heat wave arrives...

Ahhh, grandparents are great. In so many ways. What a nice post! And yes, they grow so fast. It's great to envelop ourselves in that one special moment sometimes.

I'm so bummed about blogher I wanted to go and then my brother was getting married that weekend but then he ended up getting married before then and didn't tell anyone and now it is too late. So selfish.

Sounds to me like you are taking it all in an savouring it, good job! There is always change and sometimes it makes our head spin, eh?

Enjoy the weekend!

She got a treat for her brothers? That is so incredibly sweet.

I hear you on time and whining. At least he sticks to the weather? Mine are not so discerning.

I didn't know you were familiar with the joys of a singing husband! Or, is that I didn't know you were familiar with the pain of a singing husband?

So very jealous of your pool access. Somehow swimming in the mudpit in the backyard just isn't the same as a pool.

A mud pit would work, if it's hot enough...
