my son.

a friend asked me last night if i felt like things were "normal" now?
"yeah"...i said. "they just feel really, really busy.
like i can't ever catch up."

it's not necessarily a "bad" thing.
i am involved in a lot of good "things"...
but Bible study, yesterday, was about sacrificing some things to the Lord...
even really "good" things.
so. now i am thinking on that a bit.

all that to say.
my 8 year old son came down this morning.
and met me at the desk in the office.
i was paying bills, sifting thru the mess, and looked up.
to find him standing there.
with the same shirt on as yesterday.

i said, "honey. go change your shirt.
you can't wear the same shirt 2 days in a row."
he casually said, "it's not 2 days mom.
i've worn this shirt all week."
(may i remind you it's now thursday...)

yep. i am not overwhelmed. :)
(just clearly in denial)
life is normal.
but i did't notice my son has been wearing the same shirt to
school all week long. eeeekkkkk.
in my defense, he did say,
"the kids didn't know either. i wear a different sweatshirt overtop."

i totally *cracked up*.


on another note.
my husband has come full circle.

i sneekily took the picture.
he was not happy about it. :)

i, however, am delighted!
it really does take awhile to paint all their nails.
i was happy for the help. :)

and it shows all of you, he really does have a softer side...
