Knock Knock

Yes, it's been awhile since I have posted, but with good reason(s). Graham had a croup episode that necessitated a trip to the ER. Thankfully, unlike last year's croup excitement, he didn't have to be admitted and he is doing fairly well. But several sleepless nights have done a number on me. My other excuse for being MIA: the boys were on Spring Break last week, but instead of going to Cancun, they were here. With me. Allllllll week. 'Nuff said.

All the time together with the boys last week made me realize...

Do you ever have those moments with your children when you realize you are at a really, really good point in parenting and you need to focus, soak it in and keep it close to your heart so the fleeting moment is not lost amongst all the not-so-hot moments of parenting?

We're at a stage right now with R and G that I can only sum up as precious. No, not a saccharin-type of precious, but precious to this Sweet Pea Mom because I know, from experience, how fleeting this stage will be. Right now we're at a time in which G still innocently and adoringly shadows almost every one of R's moves, R adores and revels in the attention G gives him and together they have begun to play together.

My favorite thing they are beginning to share is the telling of jokes:

See? Precious, I tell you.

Our meals for the week:

Chicken Fiesta Soup
Goat Cheese Stuffed Pork Tenderloin, Broccoli, Another Side
Chicken Enchiladas
Freezer Dive

I'm off to rest for a few before my afternoon cranks up,

Love it! Jake never quite got the knock-knock joke routine, but he cracks up at every single one Rachel tells.

I'm in a similar stage. It's been really smooth sailing lately and they're getting along with eachother - and eager to give me hugs and kisses. Loving it.

We have a PS concert tonight, so after a quick pre-show dinner we'll be doing ice cream for a treat. We're also freezer diving (black-eyed peas and chalupa pork). I'm in full Spring Cleaning mode.

It'll be nice once Camryn is at that age where she and Evan can play. I think Evan is waiting for that!! Camryn doesn't do much now and Evan leaves her alone for the most part.
