This is NOT normal-but it's our normal.

It is a QUIET Saturday morning here.

No little kids getting up at the crack of dawn.

No little kids asking me to make them 17 different breakfasts.

No little kids asking me to turn on the TV while I am in the middle of making one on the 17 breakfasts they ask for.

No little kids drinking their drinks as fast as they can so they can ask me for something different to drink.

No. Little. Kids.

Kobe is so EASY. It is ridiculously easy to have a child that is able to do almost everything he needs himself.

He is still the typical only child and plays so well by himself.

It is dreadfully quiet around here and I love it...and hate it.

I am sad S is at her mom's house.

I am glad K is with his adoptive family for the weekend.

So many mixed emotions.

This is not normal.

But it is our normal.

I know exactly what you mean. Mine ALL sleep through the night, are ALL potty trained, they are NOT in car seat and I don't have to push a stroller! Yet, my life can change in an instant that I have 2 in car seats, one in diapers and I'm pushing a double stroller. But you know wht? I wouldn't have it ANY other way!!! :)

Every day is it's own adventure ... never knowing what is around the next corner is a what if or a maybe ... life would be so dull if every day was a ditto of the last. Even one kid can make it an adventure. They see everything with new eyes and make you see with younger eyes. Each new day is an exploration into the unknown .......... fun, isn't it?
