It’s been exactly one week since I posted a blog. It was unintentional. It’s like Spring Break happened a week early around here! I got back from the Tyler, College Station and San Antonio trip Monday night and have spent the rest of the week recovering.
OK, who am I kidding?! … The trip was easier to recover from than this:
Jacob lost his top front tooth. And after the hillbilly phase with one tooth missing, then it’s the cute … “needing your two front teeth” phase and then it’s BIG teeth. And your baby changes right before your eyes.
I had barely recovered from the tooth losing trauma before I spent an entire morning searching through pictures of Brittany from Pre-K (when she had all her teeth) to now where she looks so grown up. The pictures are for Brittany’s 5th grade graduation DVD. When I took the baggie with her pictures up to the school, the picture on the top was of Brittany in her “adios Pre-K” t-shirt and when I showed it to one of my friends at the school SHE started crying saying … “that is so sad … she was so little and now she is so big.”
I think, due to all the stress of wondering “WHERE DID MY BABIES GO?!?!”, I became unable to form a complete thought … or post a blog.
And then last night, as if to add insult to injury, Caroline asked me when we could start looking at colleges.
The only thing I could think to do was to poke my fingers in my ears and chant … " LALALALALA …. I can’t hear you … I can’t hear you".
The good news is that we’ve been wondering what to do for Spring Break and now Bill thinks we should go to Nashville and show the kids Vanderbilt (where we both went to graduate school). When we mentioned it this morning Caroline said … “that sounds great …. I’ve never been to Tennessee. Do they have beaches there?”
And I thought … “that’s funny … I think I’ll go write a blog.”
