It has been awhile since I've fallen. Unfortunately, I now have to reset the countdown because yesterday I took a tumble. I wasn't running or doing anything daring. I was simply walking (or trying to walk) up the stairs outside. I was lugging four gallons of bubble soap up to the door when I lost my balance. Thankfully nothing is broken, and I only managed to bruise my hand and my pride. I hate the vulnerability that comes from falling.
Despite my not so graceful saunter up the
stairs, yesterday was a good day. My niece Tiffany is down for the week,
which is providing a much needed distraction for Robby. The pair play
beautifully together, and the lack of drama which has been accompanying
his recent play dates has been refreshing. It is nice to see two kids
playing and compromising without escalating to a fight.
isn't the only one enjoying Tiffany's visit. Timmy has been delighted
with her company. He has been full of energy and busy trying to distract
and impress her with his toys, tricks and skills. He absolutely adores
her, and watching her patience while playing with him it is apparent
that the feeling is mutual.
Today is going to be really fun for
the kids. Between cooking class, dressing like a cow and hitting every
Chick Fil A in a 20 mile radius in the quest for free food, and playing
at the pool, we will be busy but happy. Today is just the beginning of
our week of adventures and summer fun. I hope everybody is ready for
what I have been planning!
