Nine is halfway to eighteen

Maybe you haven't noticed, but 9 is HALF of 18.



I don't have one of those kids who seems his age, so when I realized just exactly how old nine really IS, I gotta say, I was a bit shocked. Maybe I'm crazy, but he looks a little more nine-ish than he did a few days ago...

Joshua's birthday was kind of a bittersweet day for me. I'm having the "omg my kid is old" panic a little too soon, probably, but nonetheless... I am feeling it. Luckily I heard from one of my lifelong friends that day, who had just delivered a baby boy six days earlier.

So guess what I got to do on my 9-year-old's birthday?

I got to hold this little guy!
In a weird way it made me feel better.

Today I am staying home to clean house, relax, and get some time with my boys. I can't believe how much I miss them after being at work all week.

We spent several hours cleaning the kids' room (pig sty) this morning. We discovered the carpet! Haven't seen it in months. Carried out garbage bags full of trash. Tonight's project is the living room & laundry, so I'm afraid I'm all out of time to write. I can't stand to live in this tiny apartment another minute in its current tornado-ish state.

  1. You're going to hate me for saying this, but... in that pic, he looks older than nine. (But I'm guessing that's b/c there are no older people in the pic with him.) That is scary, though, that's he's halfway to being legal!
