Perhaps they are upset because I haven’t shared their birthday pictures. At least that would mean there was a reason for the screaming. I can’t quite explain it but we’ve had our hands full with the guys the last couple of weeks. Lots of giggles and hugs but more screaming and crying. It’s not how I like to start my day so I won’t start your day that way either. Instead, I’m checking one thing off the list of many things they might be uptight about these days. Here are the photos from their 2nd birthday!
Most the pressure for me to get something, anything, posted is self-inflicted. However, to those of you who have ever so subtly reminded me that SMOG went out the window about halfway through, I get it. I didn’t even go back and count how many days into the summer I made it before falling off the blogon (hah! blog + wagon). So I can’t say that missing my goal taught me to count. It did teach me that I cannot do it all. New state, new house, new school, new nanny and trying to blog every day. I think its pretty good only one of those didn’t happen. I would guess Eddie, my mom, Ed and Fletch are pretty glad too.
So a lot has happened since Fletch’s birthday and I’ll just have to catch you up slowly. Expect future posts on the triplet’s 2nd birthday, Fletch’s birthday party, our new house, the 1st day of school and other less thrilling events.
In the meantime, I have a favor to ask, please take a minute to vote for Fletcher’s new school Give with Target. 1 vote = $1 and you can vote once per day. The website is http://givewith.target.com/ Fletch’s school is Yinghua Academy.
Imagine us all sitting around the table:
Fletcher (giggling): I farted
Me: Fletcher, please stop that’s not appropriate
Fletcher (giggling still): I farted again
Fletcher: I can’t it’s my instincts. Get it “my in stinks”
I wish there was a sense of humor milestone at the pediatrician’s office. Fletch would be in the 100th percentile. Of course, his subject matter (farts) and his venue (the dinner table) leave a bit to be desired but he’s a boy what are you gonna do.
He’s six years old today and next month he’ll go to Kindergarten. When you see him it’s not hard to believe that he’s so old but I cannot believe how fast the time has gone or how much he’s changed. I don’t think he would say its been his best year. Having three little brothers is still not always fun and moving away from a neighborhood and town full of friends was less fun still. Even with all that he is as loving and caring as always. This summer he’s been concentrating on swimming (easier said than done when you’re so skinny the lifeguards say you’re a “sinker”) and visiting with Great.
Cannot wait to see what wonderfulness Fletcher will bring into our lives in the next year. Happy Birthday, Fletch!
The big races were all run earlier this summer and I’m fairly certain the boys are already too tall to be jockeys but it looks like we might have some equestrians in our future.
Yes, the video is terribly blurry but they move so fast they are usually blurry in person as well.
No, I don’t have a comment about his Royal Highness’ birthday, first public appearance, or even his name. Sorry. I don’t even have anything to post about our little princes’ birthday last week. I have some photos of the guys on their 2nd big day but they are not yet available on my computer. In the meantime, I submitted last year’s party to one of my favorite websites: Apartment Therapy. It’s a great site, especially if you’re an amateur decorator and professional admirer of other peoples’ spaces, like myself. I missed it when it when up on Monday, I was busy recuperating from a trip to the zoo with all four boys and our cousins McKeon and Greta.
I’m not sure I’ll have my act as together this year so please take a look, we might not be “real” website worthy again.
