Though life is very happy for us here, all of us are excited about the changes ahead. I have the "itch" to clean out closets and get rid of as much as possible so that we can more easily stage and sell our house in the spring. Eliana is totally on board. (And Danny wonders why we kept it all in the first place!) Emma is usually a "saver," but she did us a favor by puking on her whole box of old coloring books last night, making it much easier to part with them.
Easton (age 2-1/2) is showing his own unique version of flexibility. Yesterday he announced that he was poopy.
I said, "Well, let's go in your room and I'll change you."
He said (enthusiastically), "Change me A LOT, Mom!"
I can hardly keep track of the cute things the kids say. Tonight Easton told me, "Mom, my throat hurts. Can you put some cream on it?"
And I overheard Emma (age 5) in the living room teaching Easton the difference between "opaque," "transparent," "fluid," and "viscuit" (that's viscous). Her kindergarten teacher is obviously doing a great job!
