do you ever wonder what it's like to be alone?
yeah, me too.
i was talking to a friend yesterday
who lamented that her only alone time
was in the bathroom.
i wish i could say the same.
i feel like the only time my children aren't yakking my ears off
or hanging off of my every limb
is when it's dinnertime.
then i can't seem to get them to come to the table.
i hope that doesn't have anything to do with my cooking.
for just last night, i served tacos
(with fresh cilantro from our garden!)
and D would not eat his meat and sour cream filled tortilla.
that was, until he was allowed to dip it in ketchup.
he may never complain about my cooking again.
i am not a fan of ketchup at all
(sorry if that offends you)
but i do remember while growing up
that my cousins would put ketchup on everything.
and i mean everything.
that's probably why i can't even stand the smell of it.
i think my children are laughing at me in this photo.
laughing at my dream that i might someday get a photo
with all three of my children
looking at the camera.
don't you think?
who am i kidding.
that is not going to happen anytime soon.
but he'll smile for me.
if i beg him.
even though being in front of the camera
makes him uncomfortable.
and this little man,
he loves it when i take his picture.
actually, it's sometimes difficult to get a shot of him
when he is not smiling and looking at the camera.
unless, he is with his siblings.
then he never looks and smiles.
not when they do anyway.
i think they've formed some sort of pact.
L has his first post-op later today.
i am interested in hearing what L
has to say to the doc
because he has fully investigated his own wounds.
we have found L without a sock on his right foot
and he has also now decided to remove the bandage on that foot.
again, i say yuck.
i'm looking forward
and not looking forward
to the big reveal of his left foot today.
i accidentally saw some of it without a bandage
when we were in the hospital and
i think i will be forever scarred by that sighting.
i don't remember seeing much foot at all
but lots and lots of stitches and blood.
i don't think that L will be phased by any of this
but i sure have been.
i'll be sure to keep you posted.
you can count on that.
fyi, these photos were taken before the operation.
