I can't belive that summer is over.  It went by so fast for us.

I don't get the results until next Wed. It is about to drive me nuts not knowing. M, how was your trip? You should make A read to G. It would help her to read simple books to him.

I failed miserably at my plans to get Addison more comfortable with reading this summer. DH had her doing iXL several times a week so I let it slide...and now that Gabe wants me to read to him, it is so hard to find the time/motivation to do both kids! Especially with summer bedtime schedule. I'm getting more strict about starting the bedtime process early so we can fit it all in.

"...remember that I only have 2 kids and they can feed and bathe themselves." You are lucky they are boys...I still have to wash Addison's hair! I don't trust her to wash all the shampoo and conditioner out.

Yay - so glad to hear your hubby comes home today, Alicia! Can he send you on a week's vacation by yourself somewhere? (Fat chance, I know...) Hope you are feeling better!!

I'm here! I went out of town Fri-Mon. I tried checking in last night and couldn't log in and the most recent post showing was from February! Glad they got it fixed quickly. How are you doing, Karen? Off to catch up on what happened the past few days...

alicia, I often want to drop the reading now that she is doing so well and giving me a chance to read more to brady. thanks for sharing. it helps that I like the books so much. we can bond over them, which makes me realize that as her world gets bigger, I have a smaller piece. it sounds like things should be easing up for you. I hope so. you deserve it.

Your summer was crazy. I don't know how you did it.

We made plans to meet up with a friend of his at 2:30. Well we ended up buying him a used bat ($95 for a USED bat!!!!) and then we had lunch out and dinked off some time and then met his friend and went to the batting cages. We didn't get home until almost 5!  Single parenthood is hard but you have to remember that I only have 2 kids and they can feed and bathe themselves.
