Ummm - here's my post

Well, kids, not much has been going on around here. The other day I took some pictures of William while Collin was raking leaves. I asked William the other day to stay 3-1/2 forever and he agreed to do it. If only . . .

My grandmother is probably rolling over in her grave that Will is bare footed. Children Always had to have socks on around her or they would catch a cold certainly (even though she hardly ever wore shoes and socks). I used to tease her all the time that I didn't have an undershirt on and was getting pneumonia even as we spoke, as this was the other dressing-your-child rule.

It has felt good taking it easier, not rushing all day long to get this and that done, looking at the dishes and being able to tell myself "That is someone else's job; I am not going to do them." Will has even been participating in the tidying up by putting his toys away. Isn't it something how they Love to help when they are little and they Despise it when they are teens? Hanging out with the kids more has been cool, too. I've always got Will, my Siamese twin, around, but the others are older and they are so busy. You've got to get your time in with them when you can.

Later today I see a new psychiatrist as my meds need some adjusting. I believe I'm beyond of the comfort level of my Family Doctor, although he might not want to admit it. And then maybe I'll take a stroll through Half Priced Books since I'll be so close to it. Love that place. Will get in my photo a day, fill some orders from the store. Life right now is pretty good.

Very sweet images. Yes, life is good. We just have to be open to the goodness in it. You're a strong lady.

Hugs,

Good Morning Erin....the fall leaves are beautiful. It looks like Will was having himself a good time playing in them. And oh, hes' going to catch pneumonia...LOL

Maybe its just my screen, but the last picture did not shrink to fit the screen and I can only see about 1/4 of it. Just thought you'd like to know. Have A Super Duper Autumn Day my friend. So glad you are feeling good, it always helps. Blessed Be...

Hi Erin, cute post! I'm trying to enjoy my two little ones as much as possible. It is awesome how much they want to help and be with you at this young age. I really would love to keep it going forever too-

Sigh...I envy your leaves. My Amelia is still waiting for this alleged Fall in Texas to happen. She keeps asking me why none of the leaves have fallen yet :)

Those pictures are gorgeous. And I see your Chucks sneaking into the frame...I finally broke down and bought some gray ones. I swear I would sleep with them if Husband would let me!

I'm thinking the same thing about my dishes :)
I love your shoes! I can't wait for fall to come to Arizona.

I just returned from visiting my grandson. He had his first birthday. When I see little children now, I think of them all as my grandchildren. Will is delightfully cute.

So glad you're realizing life is good.

Yeah, you should count yourself blessed that your child likes to clean even as a little guy. MY child refused. My mother once said to me, "good luck teaching that child to clean anything." And now at 13, I'm sunk. Hee

Love the photos. So sweet.
