Sunday, Sunday

Here we are at the first Sunday of the New Year. Christmas was quiet for the most part. Not too much hustle and bustle because of the unbelievable amount of snow that we have had here this year. Everyone stuck pretty close to home and shoveled and shoveled and we’re STILL shoveling.

Tomorrow, providing the streets are clear, my kids will head back to school. There is a part of me that would really like to stay huddled cozy and warm in our house and just continue languishing in our non-routine. The other part of me can’t wait for the freedom that comes with having my youngest picked up at 7:15 and not returning home until close to 4 pm. The past two weeks have been both thrilling and trying with him home 24/7. I am thrilled at the leaps and bounds that his communication has improved over the past couple of months. He is now putting together full sentences and spontaneously imparting information to me. Not that I grasp it all. But, he is communicating with me. The trying part has been that he is in many ways like a 2 year old. Getting into things, removing decorations from the tree, he is fascinated with my container of flour, watching toilet paper or small toys get flushed down the toilet. You name it, he is into it. And he is so aware of any door left inadvertently unlatched. He has no qualms about going into his sisters room and pulling everything off the desk onto the floor in search of whatever is on his mind at the time and if he finds her camera in easy reach well….he struck GOLD! With a 10 year age gap we hear the frustrated wail of the teenager as she discovers what her younger sibling has managed to destroy THIS time.

In any case, I think I will just take a couple of days the find my focus and get back on track. I want to make a concerted effort to post more frequently and be more consistent at interacting with my “peeps”.

I hope the New Year comes in with a sense of rejuvenation for you. I know it has with me!  Stumbleupon  Technorati  Digg
