So many things to share...

Saturday morning....after a great night sleep Grant brought me Nolan. Now, this kid doesn't stay still for anything. Changing his diaper requires expertise in wrestling and singing with good ol' fashion SPEED. All I wanted to do is cuddle with him. So, I did I little mediation with him thinking this is never going to work. And, yet, it did. Wonders never cease. Five minutes - STILL. Saturday evening.....Mason was being so cute. I put him to bed and then I did something I NEVER do. I got in bed with him and we talked. We talked about the day, about his bed in a tent (blanket draped over the side of the top bunk to create a tent atmosphere on the bottom bunk), and about something else I didn't quite get. He asked me if I was going to sleep with him and I replied, "No, I am going to go downstairs and spend some time with your Daddy." He said, "Okay, see you later Alligator!" I said, "In a while Crocodile." He looked at me in a concerned way and replied, "Mommy, I am Mason, not crocodile." Right - my mistake. On Sunday, Mason and I went to Fred Meyer, as usual, during Nolan's nap to give Grant some quiet time in the house. Mason LOVES Playland there. He played, I shopped, and on the way home he told me that he wanted to invite his friends over for movies on Thursday. I asked, "Which friends?" He said the ones from Playland! I smiled and said something nice thinking all along that we would have to talk about boundaries, but that would be AFTER he is too big for Playland. So, those were the high points of my weekend - one more - I saw MAME at the 5th with my Mom and Aunt it was AMAZING! If I had the money, I would so be her! Low points? Yep, there was one of those, but it was me catching a glimise of my back side going into the shower and thinking, "Oh my, I am showing off jeans with that thing!" Work must be done becuase apparently the chemo made my butt fall...now there is a project! Happy Monday, Ang

Good thing you had my kids teach you the importance of staying still during diaper changes, hunh? I bet you never let YOUR kids walk through the poop!

Hey you sound great!! Back to the fundamentals of life, changing diapers and reassuring children about who they are. Don't worry about falling backsides, the older you get the more things sink and shrink. Keep on healing! pat&mag

I think most mom's remember some kind of diaper extra curriculars....like a foot in the mouth, the flip, diaper tug of wars....ah! but...such sweet memories.

I just don't remeber ever looking as good in my jeans, as you do, while changing diapers. You still got it girl. Auntie Jane
