Saturday was a day for watching golf and giving kisses. Daddy did all of the golf watching, and I did most of the kisses giving. It was a rainy, stormy, windy, stay inside and look dreamily out of the window kind of day.
So that is exactly what we did. It was one of those days where the weather cancels everything, and we have to regroup in the living room and come up with a new game plan. A new plan of what are we going to fill this day with.
And, to put it lightly, I love days like that. I love days like that. When Teebs fills the day with exactly what he does best, which is not taking anything too seriously.
Jessica is a writer and amateur photographer in Lincoln, Nebraska. She began writing after the birth of her second child when she found she needed an outlet for her creative energy. Soon after she began taking pictures, and since has used her blog as a "canvas" for pairing her unique photos with poetic writing. She finds inspiration for her writing through her husband and their two boys.
And Bub fills the day with exactly what he does best, which is taking life, and computer games, and everything in between, very, very seriously.
And I love that difference between them, those bits of personality that seep out in a way that make me want to do nothing else but scoop up my babies and say I love you just the way you are.
And then today, after Bub's gymnastics class (yes, he is still going, and yes he is still loving it) we went to Making First Impressions to have the boys' hand and footprints done.
Teebs, the brute and thrill seeker that he is did wonderfully---
And was very, very proud of himself.
And my Bub, like he usually does, taught me a huge and unexpected lesson. Bub is so much like me, so cautious, so wavering, so full of critical thinking, that I often count him out of things. "No he won't do that" or "No he won't like that" I so often find myself saying. And while I say this because it is what he told me, still I have to let myself step back and give him the opportunity to be scared, but move forward anyway.
And he did. He moved forward anyway. So we bribed him with chocolate, whatever, he still made the choice to jump in and go for it. And I learned a valuable lesson and we will have some beautiful ceramic ornaments from the experience.
And that is exactly how we filled our weekend. Thunderstorms, kisses, television golf, regrouping, and learning lessons.
And in true Bub fashion, our plan for the rest of this week is to jump in and go for it. As life goes forward and we still work on selling our house, finding a new one, raising our babies, staying sane...we are going to move forward anyway.
We are jumping in and going for it and wishing everyone a wonderful, wonderful week.
