Calvin is enjoying the pool know. Woo-hoo! He gets in an inner tube and goes down the slide over and over. He loves it and asks to swim everyday. His vocabulary is increasing daily. I just asked him a question and he said: "What?" So cute. Calvin wants to go places everyday. In the morning he asks when he's going "bye-bye" and I either tell him now or later. I think he is bored a lot during the day. He is accustomed to playing with children his own age everyday, all day. Silas isn't 5 years old and the older three are at school. I wonder if having everyone home in the summer will help? Calvin is very attached. I show him love and affection often and he just soaks it up. Calvin enjoys puzzles, coloring, and watching "Buzz buzz" -> The Bee Movie, Blue's Clues, and Toy Story.
- I need more alone time
- My house is a disaster 90% of the time
- I am not fully adjusted to having 5 children - especially with a VERY whiny/screaming/fussing 2 year-old.
Whenever I see my husband or Anna being sweet to Silas (when he's whining), it makes me wonder what my deal is? He is adorable and I love him, but when he whines - I am only frustrated. I don't feel compassion - unless he is hurt - just frustration. He is only 2 - I get that mentally, but my emotions go into overdrive when he is whining and crying 5-6x per hour. I thought that maybe Silas was just that way with me, but yesterday I was putting laundry away after Tyler got home, and I heard him in the kitchen telling Silas over and over and over not to to touch this or that and Silas was whining up a storm. It's nice to know that Tyler can experience what I experience all day, everyday, although I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
Mother's Day is coming up. I wish it were here today - I need a break. The only thing I have asked for from my family is that on Sunday I have a clean house. That's all I want - a clean house. Not just tidy, but CLEAN. I am also preparing something special on the menu...not sure what, yet. I would rather cook and have a clean house than have a dirty house and have Tyler cook. I'd like to know what others are doing to celebrate Mother's Day?
