Vacation, All I Ever Wanted...

It can hardly be called that when we're not going anywhere or doing anything. And Jim's at work 'til the weekend so I get the two youngest to try to keep occupied. Vacation...ha! Don't get me wrong - it is nice to be able to spend some time with Aidan and Liam. Such lovely little boys they are! But I must say it's far from relaxing. Is it awful that I miss work? I can't believe I'm saying that...just four months ago I was crying over having to go back. But it's an important part of my life, and I like doing something I feel proud of. Not to mention the much-needed paycheque. Them student loans ain't gonna pay themselves!
Today, we'll go visit my sister and her little guy, Gage. Haven't seen her in a while and it'll break up the day nicely.
Guess what I'm doing tonight? Don't laugh. I'm going to my first singing lesson! Hey! You're laughing!
I've always wanted lessons and a friend of mine let me tag along to hers the other night. It was all the inspiration I needed to sign up. I'm actually excited to be doing more for myself lately; it's long overdue. And it's getting easier. Too easy, in fact. People, it's FUN doing things for yourself! It's freeing! Empowering, even! Who knew?
I guess I should do laundry or something.
Bah. Vacation! What-EVER!

Oh! First, let me entertain you with a conversation Aidan and I had yesterday:

Me: Well, I have to go to the bathroom; I'll just be gone a minute.
Aidan: Do you have to go poop?
Me: Why, yes, actually!
Aidan: Oh! You'd better hurry up, Mom!
Me: Why, dear?
Aidan: Well, we don't want to poop in our pants, do we?

Still giggling over that one!

Oh, that kid is cute.

And you are cute because you write things like 'paycheque' instead of 'paycheck.'

I was just thinking about voice lessons today actually! That is something I have always wanted to do!

Very funny conversation with your son! So grown up to let you know the consequences of not hurrying to the restroom...
