Well, today was Jason and Lily's birthday and I won the lame mom of the year award. We didn't really do too much. We did go over to the coffee shop and have a Happy Bday cookie... and we took them out to dinner w/ mom and dad last night. It's not like they really get it at this point. We are having some friends over next Saturday to celebrate since Tom has to work this weekend.
Tom's back pain seems to be managed for now, but he still has a lot of stiffness and weakness. He made it through his meetings today, but spent some time laying down in between.
Cute kids like to have their pictures taken then look at them. Jason tries to run straight to the camera before I have a chance to shoot the photo then gets pissed when I won't show him b/c I'm still trying to get a picture.
First corn on the cob:
They ate it like old pros... though they did occasionally try to eat it w/ a fork.
Garage sale purchase. they were so pleased w/ themselves to have "Jason's own chair" and "Lily's own chair." When do they start speaking in the third person?
And after the nice sunny photos were taken... after a nice long run and a LONG (much needed nap - them not me... still waiting for my nap)... the rain returned and we found ourselves inside. The kids requested Shrek! So Shrek it was. I mean ... it can't be that bad to have them watch TV when it's the only time I can get them to cuddle w/ me for more than 10 seconds... that's quality Momma time!! And Momma loves to cuddle the babies! If it takes some Shrek... so be it. This time they watched most of it.
Ok... must go to bed. Tomorrow is the first race of the season.. I decided to just go do the race.. I had decided against it when Tom hurt his back, but he's working to morrow so I'm racing damn it! ha :) Okay... I'm thinking I might not "race" it... meaning I might leave the computer in the transition area and just go out there and have fun. We'll see if I can actually do that! :)
