If Gus was allowed, I'd let him Hunt-n-Peck a "Thank You" letter for his birthday wishes. It has been a dizzying couple of weeks & it doesn't appear to be slowing down until the middle of May. It all began with Gus & I spending a lovely day together for his birthday. We dropped Tuck off at daycare & explored our town. It's so exciting to watch him interact with his world. He's always been more cautious. He does a lot of waiting until the crowd clears. Then he gets really interested in what the buttons do or what the video is explaining. I think that age four brings lots of question about this world. "Why did that space shuttle explode?" "Who is the Army fighting?" "What does 'hostage' mean?" "How did I get into your belly?" The first three questions are perfect examples of why we don't watch the news, but sometimes you can't escape these images. The last one has been one we've been waiting on since I felt him first kick inside me. I think I gave good answers. He seemed to be satisfied, but I can tell more are coming. And fast!
I really wish that I could be cleaning & relaxing. But that isn't going to happen. Work is slamming me into all parts of this country. I love being able to finish my book list in the airport, but I hate coming home when the boys are asleep. I need to remember to always pack a sock. Pack a sock, Dumb-Dumb!
