Well, I survived the joy of the 4th grade music program tonight. It even included a special treat of 100 4th grade students playing harmoniously on the recorder. You know, those little plastic shrill mini clarinet things. And the wonderful acoustics that a cafeteria provides. But indeed, the youngsters are cute, it is very entertaining. The kid who held the note a bit too high. The kid who played the recorder when they weren't supposed to. The kid who was so nervous his voice cracked during his solo (the poor lad). And all the smiling faces of the proud children. They really are wonderful, but even more wonderful followed by a couple of Tylenol.
I'm the mom co-habitating with 3 cavemen and 3 cats. Like is never dull. I love all my cavemen dearly, but sometimes I wish I could really sell them on E-Bay. The little cavemen are constantly teaching me new things.
The hubby- Married to him for 13 yrs. Been together for 19. Yeah, he took his sweet time to propose, but he was worth the wait. His hobbies include spending time in the cave (aka basement) watching sports of all kinds. He loves vacationing with us. He's outdoorsy & fun. He truly is my soul mate.
My oldest son who is 12. He enjoys World War II History, kickball, baseball & bicycling. He also enjoys studying military helicopters & airplanes. He loves snakes & lizards. He is excellent at covert operations & scaring his mother on a weekly basis. Sometimes to the point where one day she will need CPR. He alway enjoys hogging the remote, wearing the same clothes on the weekend & is still figuring out what soap is really used for. He's a sweet, mostly honest, and kind child. I love him dearly, but sometimes he is just too smart for his own good.
My youngest son is 10. He is just one year and three months younger than his older brother. Yes, I was an insane woman to have them so close in age. He is Mr. Compliant and Mr. Money Hoarder. He loves earning and saving money in his wallet, Disney movies, changing his name to the point of driving his parents crazy, and swimming. He loves his pets ( I think he can actually communicate with them). He also likes to leave his toys all over my entire house & no matter how much I pick them up they end up back in the same spot. Under my feet!
Finally some more female species of the house. We have 4 of them. All rescued animals and they all spent the first few months of their lives in a semi-truck. They are your typical female cats. You can only love them on their terms. Except of course Caveman #3 can do whatever he wants to them.
